Title: Best Time for Chanting

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-03-13 20:12:17


Dandavat Pranams Gurudev,

Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna!


What is the best time for chanting? Why is so much emphasis given to chanting in the brahma murta time, when actually the lords pastimes are enacted throughout the day and the names of the lord are always potent. Is it because we are in the mode of goodness in the morning?


Thank you very much,

Your servant forever,

Preeti Nityananda dasi


Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Yes, one can chant constantly or at any time or period during the day and can tap into the full potency of the Names as the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna does not depend on anything external including the factor of time in this materiaoAlways chant Nityananda; Gauranga; and Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare and become eternally happy by attaining the spiritual world!


The monring time Brahma Muhurta is conducive because at that time the whole world is sleeping and activities of the mode of passion come to a standstill so the surroundings are a lit of peaceful which may assist in better concentration.


As per nitya-lila smarana while chanting, according to Seventh Goswami Shrila Saccidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura, the most advanced chanters chant with great concentration in the noon as during that time they can tap into the highest and most confidential noon pastimes of Lords Nityananda Gauranga and Shri Shri Radha Krishna's which are being manifested in the spiritual world.
