Hare Krisna,Actually I sincerely belief that one of the most important part of chanting Maha Mantra with full devotion is to first understand the real meaning of Maha Mantra. Nothing should be secret or unrevealed, all devotees should know what he is going to do before sitting for Japa in a certain posture infront of the Diety or any other holy place. As all kind of learnings are generated from critical reflection, so, why don't we ask to GURU or any other pure devotee to reveal the real meaning of Mantra, meaning of each word in this holy Mantra.If anyone knows perfectly the meaning, please send it to us, and also check whether the meaning is approved by other pure devotees, or not. We can add this one as a ninth step of Japa Maha Mantra. What do you think? Let's rise together. Haribol.. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.Subrata Ganguly.
