The chanting of the maha-mantra- Hare Rāma Hare Rāma

Rāma Rāma Hare Hare

Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa

Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Hare Hare brings in divine vibes and energies for the worshippers. It is a potent and zealous mantra. The essence of this maha-mantra is that it implies addressing God. When we say Hare, it means that we are connecting with the energies of God; by addressing Krishna in the mantra, we approach the ultimate divinity, and by addressing Rama, we are attracting a reservoir of all pleasure. This maha mantra directly helps devotees in establishing a personal connection with God. Ancient texts imply that when we chant this maha-mantra with utmost loyalty, Lord Krishna gradually removes all our problems, leaving us in a composed and calm state. It is stated that chanting this mantra is even superior to the comprehensive study of four Vedas.


How many times should one chant the maha-mantra?


Chanting maha-mantra at least 16 times brings euphoria to the lives of devotees. It helps us link with divine Krishna and makes us come out of all the rattrap and worldly pleasures of the world. Lord Krishna is the most innocent God; he doesn’t care how many times you chant the mantra, but he notices your dedication and devotion towards him. The great Indian spiritual preacher Srila Prabhupada says that besides calculating the number of times, focus on the determination you intonate the mantra. He states chanting 16 times is enough, but while doing that, make sure you are running behind the blessings of Lord Krishna and not behind the actual numbers or mathematics. Because in the end, all that is counted is your allegiance and commitment towards the mighty power- Lord Krishna.
