So you just start. Even now, you chant your four rounds it takes half an hour a day. Or some day you might be doing ten or twelve. Either by count on your fingers, or count with beads, or count with a clicker counter, you fix a minimum and then do that when it’s comfortable, when you know you can do it, then you raise it up. Do the next… do a little bit more. When you get to sixteen, you don’t have to raise it anymore. It’s enough. Like that you try to get… then you get a rhythm. You get a spiritual rhythm which will help you build up more and more strength.
