Guru Maharaj: In chanting the holy names, there is no hard and fast rules. Apparently, Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Prabhupāda, He personally liked to walk and chant. So, it is not necessary that one has to sit down and chant. If it gives you pain to sit straight, then you can stand up. But it is important to chant and hear the chanting. It is not so essential that you are sitting down, or standing,whatever helps you to concentrate on the chanting. If sitting down creates pain in your body, then you don’t have to sit down too long. You can stand up and dance, do the Swami step!
