Hare Krishna is for Everyone
by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada
HARE KRSNA HARE KRSNA KRSNA KRSNA HARE HARE
HARE RAMA HARE RAMA RAMA RAMA HARE HARE
The Hare Krsna mantra is for everyone, regardless of one’s religious faith, nationality, race, creed or occupation. This sound vibration is transcendental to all boundaries because it cannot be affected by material conditions; therefore anyone can chant it freely, at any time, in any place or under any circumstances. The chanting of Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare is the most simple and sublime method for realizing who God is, who we are, what the material world is, and what the relationship is between us all. Hare refers to the energy of the Lord. Krsna and Rama are names of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the reservoir of all pleasure. God, or Krsna, is full in knowledge, He is eternal, and He is always blissful. God is absolute because His name and He Himself are nondifferent.
This spiritual knowledge is now inconceivable to us because our reasoning power has been contaminated by materialistic consciousness. By our own mental speculation we cannot transcend limited and mundane logic. But if one sincerely chants and hears the Lord’s name, the Lord, who is seated in everyone’s heart, will reveal His inconceivable nature. The articles in Back to Godhead explain this process of revelation. We humbly request you to experience life beyond the petty happiness and distress of day-to-day activities by sipping the nectar of the holy names. You have nothing to lose, and the gain is very great.
