Narsimha Mahamantra

Hare krishna,

                   Can We Chant Narsimha Mahamantra without taking initiation?

                           mrityur mrityum namamy aham

    Not answering your question Prabhu but I recited that verse and my body sort of warmed up, and it felt wonderful. Thank you for introducing this verse to me!

    Hare KRsna Prabhuji,

    PAMHO.

    Your question put me in doubt. I have been chanting/ repeating this mantra for years and I am still not initiated. I dont think there is any rule for getting initiated to chant this mantra.

    Haribol,

    Your servant,

    Rashmi
