Inattentive rounds are better than no rounds.
Inattentive rounds will gradually become attentive rounds. No rounds
will take you nowhere. You must therefore always chant no
matter what is the quality of your rounds. Strive always for the best
quality, but never stop chanting on the plea that your quality is not
good enough. The only chanting that is hopeless is the chanting
that you did not do.
