The word 'Mantra' means 'deliverer of mind'. 'Maha-mantra' means 'the great deliverer of mind'. No artificial technique can help you ex­cept the revival of your dormant God con­sciousness through the chanting of the Holy names of God. Mantra Meditation is a pro­cess of repeated recitation of an authorized name of God. Such a repeated recitation pro-duces spiritual vibrations in the heart of the chanter and vanquishes all the misgivings in the heart and establishes a pure conscious­ness leading to peace and serenity. There are hundreds of names of God and all of them are very powerful. But the Kali-Santarana Upanisad specifically mentions the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. The Upanisad assures that by chanting this Maha-Mantra regularly, one can destroy all that is undesirable within  one's heart. It is further declared that there is no other way of self-realization from the point of view of all revealed scriptures.


When you go to a medical shop, although there are hundreds of medicines available, you only ask for a specific medicine prescribed by your doctor. In the same way, for this par­ticular age of Kali yuga, the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra is prescribed. The effect of such spiritual sound vibration (as the Holy name of the Lord) is a universal principle, just like the law of gravity or any other law of Physics. It causes transformation within the heart of any­one who sincerely adopts this principle, and gives them higher happiness and confidence.
