Hare Krishna !
I found our Mann as a biggest enemy. whenever I use to chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra, my mind always get distracted. I always try to listen sound vibration of mahamantra but get fails. How should I concentrate upon hearing ?? Please suggest.
hare krishna prabhuji
please read harinam chintamani book write by srila bhakti vinod takurji maharaj for control mind and concentrate upon hare krishna mahamantra hare krishna
Hare Krishna Manoj Prabhu, please accept my humble obeisances! All glories to Srila Prabhupada!
In the reality Krishna says it is true to control mind is very hard, harder than controlling a tornado.
So our sadhana is to bring mind back to the hearing of Holy Names time when it goes away.
And it will go away in every 1-2 minutes or even in some seconds.
So our en devour should be to bring it back. Goes away-bring it back-goes away-bring it back...
It is our love for Krishna in our stage for present time.
When we try to concentrate our mind on the Holy Names we will understand that it is not possible for us.
So that time we will become helpless and cry for Krishna's causeless mercy.
And that seeing that cry Krishna will shower His mercy and says "ok may your mind hear Me - My Holy Names!"
So we cannot control our mind, but we can show our attempt to do it and take shelter of Krishna: "Please, i depend on You! I am not able to do it myself!"
Also please use harekrishnajapa.com for more info on chanting, dear Prabhu.

Very true Prabhuji,
I always use to pray lord for his divine mercy for same.
Thanks for helping me in improving Krishna Consciousness.
Hume bramha muhurt me jap karna chahiye.Kuch time humara man vichlit hoga bahar ke khayal aate rahenge hume un par dhyan nahi dena hai aur apna jap karte rehna hai.Dheere dheere hamara man apne aap jap par kendrit ho jayega.
Bhagwan ne Bhagwat Geeta me kaha hai man hamara sabse acchha dost bhi hai jab wo hume bhagwan ki taraf le jaye aur sabse bada dushman jab hai jab wo hume bhagwan se dur karta hai.
Ek baat aur agar hum hamare din bhar ke kaamo me jyada disturb rehte hai to bhi man hamara jap ke samay saath nahi deta.relax ho kar kaam karna chahiye jisse doosre din savere jab hum jap kare to hamara man lage.
Hare Krishna ! Thanks for your kind revert.
