Chant Hare Krishna & Be Happy!
Confidently following this conclusion of Acharyas like SrilViswanathChakravartiThakur ,SrilaPrabhupada asserts: “This is the advantage of chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna ,Hare Hare/ Hare Ram, Hare Ram, Ram Ram ,Hare Hare. One may be put in any condition, but god gives him the prerogative to chant Hare Krishna.” If in any condition of life if one goes on chanting he will never be unhappy.”(S.B. 3.15.49, Purport)
Shrila Prabhupad also told many of his disciples at the time of their initiation, “ Now chant Here Krishna & be happy.” ToAditi Dasi in 1970: “ Chant Hare Krishna Mantra always & be happy.” & to Hladinidasi also in 1970” So please chant Hare Krishna & be happy. That is my desire.”
“All glories, all glories to all blissful holy name of Sri krisna, which causes the devotee to give up all conventional religious duties,meditation worship. When somehow or other uttered even once by a living entity, the holy name awards him liberation. The holy name of Krishna is highest nectar .It is my very life & my only treasure.” (Brhad-Bhagvatamrta 1.1.9)
