Meditation and chanting there is a lot of difference between the two. Chanting means to repeat a certain mantra, for example, this person has written the Mahamantra, Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare. Repetition of this mantra when done softly is called upanshu japa. Upanshu means whispering the mantra, very gently and in a soft voice. The second is when you do the mental or maansik japa without moving the lips or the tongue, you just keep repeating the mantras mentally. It is said that it is better to do the mantra with the breath rather than audibly. Compared to chanting the mantra with the breath, the maansik or mental japa is still better. Kabir Saheb, Guru Nanak Dev and Raidasji did not advise the audible japa. They have rather condemned it.
