HARE KRISHNA MAHAMANTRA: THE GREAT DELIVERER OF THE MIND
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.
