  • The book "The Art of Chanting Hare Krishna" By H.H. Mahanidhi Swami clearly explains the difference between material sound and transcendetal sound of Lord Sri Krisna's name. The example of how a medicinal capsule is not the medicine was very helpful in giving clear understanding to me about the process of chanting.Of course, the medicine absorbs only to the extent the capsule allows.
    The process of chanting is to say the Hare Krishna Mahamantra distinctly pronounicng each word and listen to these words with all attention. The emphasis is on hearing. And concentration can be improved by various methods
    1. Early morning is the best time to chant when we r at our sattvic best
    2. The process of chanting itself is a practice which improves over a period of time
    3. Always beg for the mercy of the Lord & Srila Prabhupada to help u.
    4. Find a suitable place that has less distractions.
    5. Chant with devotees.
    6. Chant with the knowledge that Krishna is present in His name also.
    7. Avoid the 10 offenses
    8. Be in touch with Prabhupada thru books & lectures
    9. Visit ur local ISKCON temple once a week atleast and do some service
    10. Follow the Vaishnava etiquette

Chanting Experiences

Radhe Krishna, Today, I visited ISKCON temple, Chennai, India and participated in the Bajan and listened to Gita discourse. I also bought Jaba Beads and pouch.

From the invisible movements of…

What does it mean that the holy name of Krsna is transcendental, and should never be considered a material sound vibration? The holy name has absolutely nothing to do with the mundane world of matter. The holy name is not a combination of material letters and syllables. The form of the holy name is sat-cit-ananda, eternal blissful consciousness. Although in this world, the holy name is not of this world. The divine name of the Lord is not a product of the material world. Only a liberated soul…
