On Chanting the Hare Krishna Mantra

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare: These sixteen words, comprising in themselves the essence of Krishna Consciousness, have been sung by the holy men of India since time immemorial. Today, the Maha, or Hare Krishna, Mantra has been found on the lips of the leaders of the new generation movements in East and West alike; it has been called the "Hippie anthem;" and it has been explained endlessly and mostly inaccurately. Here, Swami Bhaktivedanta, who first delivered the chant to the West, explains the real meaning and purpose of the Hare Krishna Mantra. $.25
