Great Chanting Mantra for immense peace and God Realisation- Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
According to Vedic literature and according to the personal testimony of realised souls, Krishna is the original person and as the original person he is the origin of all of us and we too are by nature
spiritual persons. Although we have physical bodies but our actual nature is spiritual and Krishna is also spiritual but the difference is that Krishna is great and we are small.
And because we were both spiritual we can have a relationship with each other. But because he’s great he’s the origin of all and we’re small. The relationship is that we are dependent on him. Now to actually get in touch with Krishna we need a method.
Krishna is everywhere but still we need a method and the method is to chant the holy names because Krishna is absolute his name is identical with him. And when we chant his name we associate with him and we can actually feel it we can experience it. Any ordinary mundane sound becomes boring after a while. It becomes disgusting after a while. But chanting Krishna Mahamantra :
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare,
Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare
is ever fresh you want to chant.
One great Krishna devotee prayed if I had millions of tongues and millions of ears then I could begin to chant because there’s so much nectar in the holy name of Krishna. There are different methods of self-realization and God realization.
Within the Vedic system there are many different types of yoga. Yoga means to link with God so there’s karma yoga the yoga of action, gyan yoga the yoga knowledge, astanga-yoga the mystic yoga process but those processes are very difficult in the modern age.
In the present age they’re possible but very difficult. But bhakti yoga or the yoga of love is the most practical and it also yields the greatest benefit and within that practice of bhakti-yoga the chanting of the holy names is the most important and essential. And if one chants the holy name in the proper way in the proper mood with attention like any other type of meditation one will develop self-realization and god-realization.
One will actually have direct perception of oneself within and direct perception of God and when one does have that realization he becomes fully satisfied. He feels that upon gaining this he’s obtained the greatest treasure and he feels there’s nothing more to be gained. And even in the midst of the greatest difficulty in the material world he’s not shaken because what he has Krishna consciousness, love for Krishna, love for God that cannot be disturbed by any material misfortune or fortune.
And therefore the devotee who’s realized the beauty of Krishna and the nectar of Krishna’s name he’s happy and satisfied in any situation and he can never be shaken in by any calamity. And it’s the greatest boon of the human society and it’s been practiced by sages for thousands of years. It’s been recommended in the bhagavad-gita which is the most essential textbook for all different types of yoga. And it’s being experienced on a daily basis by practitioners even today. so I would recommend that everyone at least try it. You can make an experiment learn the science of chanting Hare Krishna and try it. And Krishna gives you guarantee that if it’s done in the proper way you know within a very short time one will feel the results.
It accrues to one’s eternal spiritual credit and it will gradually increase in value and and one will
progressively experience more and more of the benefit of it.
Krishna came in the present age in the form of a devotee as sri krishna chaitanya. Of course
scripture and learned philosophers recognized him as krishna but otherwise even if he’s taken as a great saint he has presented this chanting. This chanting can be done individually in a quieter way with peace of mind.When you chant this mantra, focus on chanting and hear the same time what you chant. So just chant and hear what you chant. So there will not be any kind of distraction.
You can chant with any kind of beads(Mala) of 108 beads. You can repeat this beads once 108 beads is completed. You can start with 108 beads and can increase gradually as per your capacity. The more you chant this Mantra, the more you will get benefit.
