To understand Krishna, Chant Hare Krishna

Unless one is advanced in krsna-prema, love of Krsna, he cannot see or understand. By the blunt material senses, we cannot even understand the name of Krsna. People are always asking, "Why are these people chanting Hare Krsna?" They cannot understand, although Krsna realization begins with the name. The name of Krsna and Krsna are nondifferent, but we cannot realize this intellectually. Krsna is within the heart, and the...

We are saying ‘just chant’

Srila Prabhupada :   The simplest method is to associate with the Father, or the Absolute Truth. By association. This association can be possible.

I accept Chanting as a duty

To me, the bottom line is duty. My spiritual master told me to chant Hare Krishna, and so I will never give it up. I do not regard this duty as a nonsense thing. It is all I have, and so it’s very dear to me. I also have become aware that it may take a long time for me to “master” the art of chanting Hare Krishna. It is not something easily attained. This thought helps me to become more patient. So what if I have...

Hara, Krishna & Rama – transcendental seeds of the Mahamantra

Krishna Consciousness is not an artificial imposition on the mind. This consciousness is the original energy of the living entity. When we hear the transcendental vibration, this consciousness is revived. This simplest method is recommended for this age. By practical experience also, one can perceive that by the simple chanting of this Mahamantra, or the great chanting for deliverance, one can at once feel a transcendental ecstasy...
