Title: Video: success in mantra meditation
User: Nava Gauranga dasa Date: 2005-05-31 00:38:09
Nityananda, Gauranga, Hare Krishna, Jaya Shrila Prabhupada ,Jaya Gaurangapada, Jaya Gaura Bhakta vrinda.
Dear Swami Gaurangapada, please accept my humble obiesances.
I have been reading the chat transcript on 'success in mantra meditation'.
My questions are 1..we are asked to search out the meanings of the mantra while chanting, what are the meanings of the Nityananda ,Gauranga ,and Hare Krishna mantra's you suggest we should meditate on?
2...My chanting is at a very beginning stage of focusing on the sound of the mantra and letting it soak through my consciousness and when the mind wanders gently bringing it back to focusing on the sound of the mantra.In the transcript you mention meditating while chanting on the form of the lord ,my realisations in regards to this are minimal ,could you please explain how to do this? Is this meditation on the supersoul in the heart or the actual forms of Gauranga/Krishna?
desiring to be of service,Nava Gauranga dasa.
