User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2006-07-10 18:58:45


Lord Gauranga states in Shrila Jagadananda Pandita’s Prema-vivarta, Chp 21, Nama-mahima:


hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare;

hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare.


ei sloka name sarvadhika bajaya rahila he;

sarva-phala siddhi labha ei sola name haibe he.


“The chanting of the sixteen words of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra is the most superior kind of worship of the Lord. Through these 16 words, one will achieve all perfection and results.


tirtha-yatra parisrame kiba phala habe;

‘hare krishna’ nitya gane saba phala pabe.


“Why undertake so many inconveniences to visit pilgrimage places simply to gain some peity, when by constantly chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, wherever you are situated, you can accrue the results of all pious activities?


sarva-artha-pradata harinama mahamantra;

phukariya bale yata vedagama tantra.


“The Hare Krishna maha-mantra awards the chanter all kinds of

benedictions. This is repeatedly emphasized in the Vedas, Agamas and Tantras.”
