    SB 12.3.52

    kṛte yad dhyāyato viṣṇuṁ
     tretāyāṁ yajato makhaiḥ
    dvāpare paricaryāyāṁ
     kalau tad dhari-kīrtanāt
    Whatever result was obtained in Satya-yuga by meditating on Viṣṇu, in Tretā-yuga by performing sacrifices, and in Dvāpara-yuga by serving the Lord’s lotus feet can be obtained in Kali-yuga simply by chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra.
    Again, this Mahamantra was prescribed by Lord Brahma himself for this age of quarrel to get liberation for the conditioned soul. Lord Brahma included names of Lord Krishna and Rama which is full of potent as confirmed by Lord Caitanya.

    namnam akari bahudha nija-sarva-shaktis
    tatrarpita niyamitah smarane na kalah

    O my Lord, Your holy name alone can render all benediction to living beings, and thus You have hundreds and millions of names like Krishna and Govinda. In these transcendental names You have invested all Your transcendental energies......

    Therefore, one can realize maximum potent in Krishna and Rama. But not in other names of Krishna. In Vishnu Purana, it is mentioned that 1000 names of Vishnu= one name of Rama; Again three names of Rama = one name of Krishna.

    Srilla Prabhupada gave nice example: if you chant Coca Cola several time , you will be tired;however, if you chant the Mahamantra, you will never be tired off.Rather, your pleasure will be increased infinitely. 

    Aslo in Caitanya Caritamrita,


    CC Ādi 17.22

    kali-kāle nāma-rūpe kṛṣṇa-avatāra
    nāma haite haya sarva-jagat-nistāra
    “In this Age of Kali, the holy name of the Lord, the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra, is the incarnation of Lord Kṛṣṇa. Simply by chanting the holy name, one associates with the Lord directly. Anyone who does this is certainly delivered.

    CC Ādi 7.74

    nāma vinu kali-kāle nāhi āra dharma
    sarva-mantra-sāra nāma, ei śāstra-marma
    “ ‘In this Age of Kali there is no religious principle other than the chanting of the holy name, which is the essence of all Vedic hymns. This is the purport of all scriptures.’
    In conclusion, it is the original Guru Brahma who made this mantra which was not man made. It is Lord Brahma who included this most potent names of Krishna and Rama. Lord Brahma said, "kali santaranadi srutite". The srutis have declared this mantra to be the best means of deliverance in this age of Kali.
    Hope this will clarify your doubts,
    Thank you,
    Hare Krishna!
  • Hare Krsna,

    Please accept my pranams.

    Hare Krsna Maha mantra is a mantra through which we specifically are calling out to the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Krsna.

    Since all the avataras like Vamana avatar, Nrsimha avatar, Rama, Balarama all are of the same tattva. They are all Krsna. But we know that Lord Krsna is the original person from whom all the expansions, avataras, everything has come from. So we specifically call out to Lord Krsna. This is the ultimate perfection.

    Hare Krsna,
    My obeisances to all devotees, guru and Gauranga.

    As devotees, we need a form to worship on through His energy and His grace to engage us in His service. The words Hare, Krsna and Rama reference these three important aspects to develop bhakthi. One - the form, Two - his own energy and Three - his grace to allow us to worship and constantly medidate on Him.

    The Hare Krsna maha mantra is a spiritual call to the Lord, meaning, “Oh energy of the Lord, please engage me in the loving service of Lord Krishna.”

    This chanting of Hare Krishna is directly enacted from the spiritual platform, surpassing all lower stages of consciousness, namely sensual, mental, and intellectual. There is no need to understand the language of the mantra, nor is there any need of mental speculation, nor any intellectual adjustment for chanting this maha-mantra. It springs automatically from the spiritual platform, and as such anyone can take part in this transcendental sound vibration without any previous qualification and dance in ecstasy.

    The word Hara is a form of addressing the energy of the Lord. Both Krishna and Rama are forms of directly addressing the Lord, and they mean “the highest pleasure.” Hara is the supreme pleasure potency of the Lord. This potency, addressed as Hare, helps us in reaching the Supreme Lord.

    The three words—namely Hare, Krishna, and Rama—are the transcendental seeds of the maha-mantra, and the chanting is the spiritual call for the Lord and His internal energy, Hara, for giving protection to the conditioned souls. The chanting is exactly like genuine crying by the child for his mother. Mother Hara helps in achieving the grace of the supreme father Hari, or Krishna, and the Lord reveals Himself to such sincere devotees.

    Chant and be happy.

    Srila Prabhupada ki jai..

    Hare krsna
