Name of God

He who utters the Name of God while walking
gets the merit of a sacrifice at every step
His body becomes a place of pilgrimage.
He who repeats God’s Name while working
  always finds perfect peace.
He who utters the Name of God while eating
  gets the merit of a fast
  even though he has taken his meals.
Even if one were to give in charity
  the whole world encircled by the seas
  it would not equal the merit of repeating the Name,
By the power of the Name
  one will know what cannot be known,
One will see what cannot be seen,
One will speak what cannot be spoken,
One will meet what cannot be met.
Tuka says.
  Incalculable is the gain that comes
  From repeating the Name of God.
