The Name Chants (chanting of the Divine Name or naam jaap) has a very important place in hindu worship. Hinduism encourages worshiping God with name and form. Uttering or repeating of any of God's innumerable names  is one of the recommended paths of sadhana (religious practice) for those seeking the  path of  bhakthi (devotion). Chanting God's different names brings peace and love to once mind. Any name of God, added with a seed syllable like "Om" in the beginning and a "Namaha" at the end, becomes a holy Mantra and the mantra carries a subtle power to purify the one who chants it.

Hindu Prayers

India is the home of the world's oldest civilizations. It is traditionally a land of spirituality and faith. India is a secular state in which religion plays a major role in the daily life. Rituals, worship, and other religious activities are very prominent in an individual's daily life. Prayer or worship (Sanskrit : Prarthana) is considered to be an integral part of the Hindu religion. Some of the popular forms of prayers are mantras, shlokas, aartis, chalisas, bhajans, and chanting of god names. The main motive of Prayer or worship for the Hindu worshipper is making a spiritual connection with the divine; expressing one's love and devotion towards god; obtaining their blessings; and seeking wishes for the fulfillment of one's desires.
