shri chaitanya-bhagavate


ataeva kali-yuge nama-yajna sara;

ara kona dharma kaile nahi haya para.


In Shri Chaitanya-bhagavata Adi Khanda 14.139, it is said:


“Therefore the essence of all religious principles in the age of Kali is the sacrifice of chanting the holy names of the Lord. One cannot be delivered by following any other religious principles.”


shri chaitanya-bhagavate


(1) hare krishna hare krishna, krishna krishna hare hare;

hare rama hare rama, rama rama hare hare.


In Shri Chaitanya-bhagavata Madhya Khanda 23.76-78, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu instructed all the people of Navadvipa to chant:


“Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare;

Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.”


(2) prabhu bole,-“kahilan ei mahamantra;

iha japa giya sabe koriya nirbandha.”


The Lord said, “Please hear this Hare Krishna maha-mantra. Everyone please chant this maha-mantra daily in ‘nirbandha’ or constantly. “


(3) iha hoite sarva-siddhi hoibe sabara

sarva-kshana bolo’ ithe vidhi nahi ara


The Lord continued, “By chanting in this way one will achieve all perfection in one’s life. Please keep on chanting constantly because there is no consideration of any rules and regulations for this chanting process.”
