Hare Krishna devotees, accept my humble obeisances.
I have two questions to ask his excellent devotees:
1 - As we are all familiar with the most auspicious Hare Krishna Mahamantra which contains the sixteen syllables(8 - Hare, 4- Krishna, 4- Rama). Now i know the significance and importance of the mantra as a whole but i always think that why isn't the most mellodicious word Radha addressed as Hara(or Hare) in the mantra. I am very much attracted to the name of Srimati Radharani as Radha but the Hare krishna mahamantra doesn't provides the priveledge to utter that name as such. Although due to my firm belief in the instructions of shri caitanya mahaprabhu and prabhupada i give precedence to the Mahamantra and chant it primarily. I occasionally chant radha-radha also but still unable to quench my thirst for the name as most of my time i ardently give to the Mahamantra. Are there other devotees who sometimes feel the same and how do they cope with it?
2 - The second thing is that as we know that every devotee has their own sense of affection towards the different forms of Lord all being equivalently excellent. Some devotees render devotional service unto Lord Rama, others unto Lord Narsimha and so on. They chant mantras and names that are pinpointed to pray to that particular form of Lord. For example Lord Rama devotees chant Lord Rama name or some other mantras in which Lord rama is centrally glorified or prayed unto. So when we chant the Mahamantra which contains the Names of both Lord Rama and Lord Krishna then it seems that the mantra is equally good for both Lord Rama and Lord Krishna devotees(in the sense of taste as Mahamantra is factually good for all) then why this is the case that the mantra is most prominently chanted among Lord Krishna devotees(correct me if i am wrong with my perception) and as the mantra contains the names of both Lord rama and lord krishna in which Hare before each of them renders prayers to respective eternal consorts and internal potencies of the Lord i.e Mata Sita and Radharani then can we infer that Mahamantra is not pinpointed to serve and pray to Radha-Krishna (For me being a Radha-Krishna devotee this matters a lot) ?
Please pardon any insolence that i may have commited while asking the questions. It is not that i even tangentially doubt the efficiency of the Mahamantra which is bestowed unto us by the most merciful Lord Caitanya mahaprabhu who personally used to chant it. How come an insignificant human like me even dare to blaspheme or even doubt the Mahamantra because by doing so i will not even secure a place in hell. I am just a curious neophyte devotee so please have mercy on me.
Jai Gaur Nitai
Hare Krishna 🙏
