The Upasakas will recite the Shlokas from different Sargas based on the number that implies to each syllable from the Maha Mantra every day.

Tomorrow the syllable "Gha" is indicated by four Beejaksharas and the Shlokas from four Sargas will be recited from chapter three to six taking the total number of Shlokas to 152 on day two", he maintained.
