My Dearest and Beloved Devotees,
Please accept my humble obeisance. All glories to Srila Prabhupada,

I want to know,

Can one buys Japa Mala and Bead Bag from the market and chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra without having a GURU. Assuming that this person regularly reads GITA, Prabhupada Books, Loves Krishna and knows all 4 regulative principles of Chanting. The person is truly inclined to KC and knows most of the things about KC devotees. Only thing the person has not any GURU right now, later he will do it.

I am eagerly waiting for the reply, Thank you very much in advance.

My best regards ever,

    Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu descended for this very reason - to share the love of God to anyone, regardless. The Mahamantra is the best and the supreme of all mantras because not only is it very merciful, but it is also available for anyone and everyone to take part in!

    Please tell the person you are referring to, to not waste anytime and immediately get a japa mala and bead bag and begin officially chanting.
