The Chanting Of Hare Krsna Is Not Limited To The Kali Yuga

The chanting of Hare Krsna is not limited to the Kali yuga but is applicable to other ages as well:

According to Srimad−Bhagavatam there are different processes for different ages, but the principle of each process remains valid in all ages. It is not that the chanting of Hare Krsna is effective in this age and not in Satya−yuga. Nor is it that people were not chanting the holy names of Krsna in Satya−yuga. In Satya−yuga meditation was the main process, and great munis meditated for periods extending upward of 60,000 years… Caitanya Mahaprabhu introduced the chanting of

Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

as a great means of propaganda for spreading love of God. It is not that it is recommended only for Kali yuga. Actually, it is recommended for every age. There have always been many devotees who have chanted and reached perfection in all ages. That is the beauty of this Krsna consciousness movement. It is not simply for one age, or for one country, or for one class of people. Hare Krsna can be chanted by any man in any social position, in any country and in any age, for Krsna is the Supreme Lord of all people in all social positions, in all countries, in all ages.
