Chant Just Once
By Swami Gaurangapada
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Today is Tuesday. Each day begins with a new excitement in my heart of chanting the Holy Names. I really look forward to a new day in my life because I know that I can realize and relish some new and ever-fesh Nectar in the chanting of the most merciful Holy Names of Nityananda and Gauranga and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra each and every way. This is why the life is worth living.
Life is not worth living because I can earn more money each day than the previous day. Money is a material thing and is not going to come with our soul at the time of death. We cannot take with us even one cent, or one penny or one paise from our bank account at the time of our death. Then why to live for it. Why to work hard like an ass for something which we are going to leave behind fully at the time of death?
On the other hand the chanting of the Holy Names of Nityananda, Gauranga and Hare Krishna gets deposited in the non-perishable bank account of our soul and always accompanies the soul life after life till we become perfect and go to the spiritual world. Then why should we not strive to increase the quality and quantity of our Mantra Meditation Chanting on the Nityananda and Gauranga Mantrarajas and the Hare Krishna Mahamantra?
Please believe me, there is no loss! If we earn one dollar, we will not be able to maintain ourselves by it even for one day. But if you chant only once Nityananda, Gauranga, and Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare, we will delivered from the dreadful tribulations of hell and one will be enjoy the happiness of the indestructible spiritual world eternally. So please also invest your time in this most essential thing for your soul.
Shri Navadvipa Dhama Mahatmya Chp 1 states:
gauranga nitai yei bale eka bara, ananta karama dosha anta hai tara.
"The most fortunate person who chants "Nityananda Gauranga" just once, immediately destroys his or her unlimited sinful reactions accumulated for the past millions upon millions of lives."
