in my exploration of the history of the Gāyatrī mantra, I naturally have
to deal with the practice of *repetitive recitation**of a mantra*. I
would like to collect as much literature as possible about the origins
and the development of this specific practice in South Asian religions
(of course there's a lot about japa and mantras in general, and repeated
recitation is ubiquitous, but I am looking for more focused studies).
Serious studies about the psychological effects of repeating a single
text would also be interesting.
Any references (and/or PDFs) would be very welcome, on or off-list!
