Title: 08 Chaitanya Charitamrta

Shri Chaitanya-charitamrita Adi-lila 17.32 purport:

 

“Chanting involves the activities of the upper and lower lips as well as the tongue. All three must be engaged in chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. The words “Hare Krishna” should be very distinctly pronounced and heard. Sometimes one mechanically produces a hissing sound instead of chanting with the proper pronunciation with the help of the lips and tongue. Chanting is very simple, but one must practice it seriously.”

 

Shri Chaitanya-caritamrita Antya-lila 11.24 purport:

 

“The first regulative principle is that one must chant the Hare Krishna maha-mantra loudly enough so that he can hear himself, and one must vow to chant a fixed number of rounds.”
