Jayapatākā Swami: I don’t know who your guru is but for my disciples, if they have to, they can use the counting machine. Since I had a stroke in 2008, my right side doesn’t fully cooperate. So I have to chant by my left hand and Rādhānātha Swami gave me some chanting machine. Now I do more than 16 rounds. But I have to like do exercises in the morning and when I exercise, I also chant and keep track of that. When I walk in the pool, I chant, each step is half a mantra. So I promised Śrīla Prabhupāda I would chant 16 rounds of 108 mantras each that is 1,728.
