Panca Tattva Maha Mantra cancels Naam-Abhasa?

Panca-tattva Maha-mantra

(jaya) sri-krishna-caitanya prabhu nityananda
sri-advaita gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-bhakta-vrinda

Purport by
His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is always accompanied by His plenary expansion Sri Nityananda Prabhu, His
incarnation Sri Advaita Prabhu, His internal potency Sri Gadadhara Prabhu, and His marginal potency
Srivasa Prabhu. He is in the midst of them as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. One should know that
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is always accompanied by these other tattvas. Therefore our obeisances to Sri
Caitanya Mahaprabhu are complete when we say, sri-krishna-caitanya prabhu nityananda sri-advaita
gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-bhakta-vrinda. As preachers of the Krishna consciousness movement, we first offer
our obeisances to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu by chanting this Panca-tattva mantra; then we say, Hare Krishna,
Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare. There are ten offenses in the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, but these are not considered in the chanting of the Pancatattva
mantra, namely, sri-krishna-caitanya prabhu nityananda sri-advaita gadadhara srivasadi-gaura-bhaktavrinda.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is known as maha-vadanyavatara, the most magnanimous incarnation, for
He does not consider the offenses of the fallen souls. Thus to derive the full benefit of the chanting of the
maha-mantra (Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare
Hare), we must first take shelter of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, learn the Panca-tattva mantra, and then chant
the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. That will be very effective.

 

 

 

^^^ Please Accept My Humble Obeisances & Dandavats.

All Glories to Srila Prabhupada, Srila Gurudeva, & Sri Gauranga.

 

Hare Krishna

 

I read the above purport given by His Divine Grace. He has said "There are ten offenses in the chanting of the Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra, but these are not considered in the chanting of the Panca-Tattva mantra."

 

So all Naam Abhasa is canceled when Panca Tattva mantra is recited 3 times before starting each round of Hare Krishna Maha Mantra?

    So does this mean that devotees that are not advanced (like myself) should chant Nityananda Gauranga instead of the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra?
