This has to be chanted very correctly and slowly with in your own mind about 108 times or at least 24 times holding your Janivara and rudrakshi together. Some people willhave rudrakshi in the middle of the gold chain like a pendant always in the neck and some people will have rudrakshi mala. My father told me a small method of counting. Count the phalanxs (carpal bones) of your right hand using the thumb which makes you twelve and using the left hand thumb count the ninePhalanx ( carpal bones) of the three fingers for every twelve carpal bones of the right hand to every one of the carpal bone making 108 times if you do not have 108 rudrakshi chain with you.

After 108 or at least 24 times (or at least ten times) Repeating the japa the Karanyasa and Anganyasa has to be repeated.

After that we have to perform:- Dikku pooja
Om Namaha: Prachyedishe Yascha Devatha Yethasyam prathivasanthi Yethabyshacha Namo Namah:
Place your hands together and make namasthe to East (Poorva Dikku)
Om Namaha: Dhaksinayedishe Yascha Devatha Yethasyam prathivasanthi Yethabyshachavo Namo Namah:
Place your hands together and make namasthe toSouth Dhaksina Dikku
Om Namaha: Pradichyedishe Yascha Devatha Yethasyam prathivasanthi Yethabyshachavo Namo Namah:
