    Hare Krsna Prabhuji,


    Yes, you can chant on tulsi beads - no problems. If you have reservations or are not following the 4 regulative principles fully, you can chant on neem beads also.

    You have not asked anything wrong prabhu. Please feel free to ask whatever comes to your mind - otherwise how will your doubts be cleared?

    Chanting is important prabhu. Please start with minimum 4 rounds and gradually increase till you reach 16 rounds. While chanting, one should hear one's own voice saying the mahamantra clearly. That is the way to chant.


    Your servant,
