• The Lord’s name has descended from Goloka (Goloker premadhana harinaam sankitan)

• Invested with the Lord’s spiritual potency

• Purifies the heart and mind

• The chanting process is simple, sublime, and all-auspicious; even a child can take part

• Frees one from sinful reaction and material bondage;

• Chanting “Rama” gives the same result as chanting the 1000 names of Vishnu

• Chanting once “Krishna” has the same potency as 3x the 1000 names of Vishnu

• Also effective for someone who is not even aware of its potency

• Contains the benefits of all other Vedic rites; to be chanting is the same as having performed all the Vedic    processes of purification

• Chanters are most attractive to Krishna

• All the Vedic knowledge is contained within the maha-mantra, the essence of the Vedas is to chant, and by chanting one realizes the meaning of the Vedas
