What is mantra?

Hare Krishna maha  mantra is one of the most popular mantras on the planet. On our page you can see it in her latin form and also in it native form - this orange pillars on the left and right side are maha mantra written in devanagari letter; sanskrit language. Thanks to this mantra all of us, living in this age, also have an opportunity to meet the Lord and to be happy... Maha means the biggest; most powerful mantra existing on the planet right now... This is also one of the reasons why you can find our members singing it on the street - because she has a power to transform even the hearts of the biggest materialists...According to every holy scripture - human form of life is meant to question oneself about Absolute Truth, otherwise it is not different from animal life. Animal is also engage in eating, defending, sleeping and matting and even thou man is doing that things on more sophisticated way, the activities are the same. But man has an ability to realize true nature of the world and meaning of the life, all he has to do is to question about that.

It is confirmed in Kalisantarana Upanishad that the most direct method of realizing God  in this age is singing and chanting of Hare Krishna maha mantra which also consist  the oldest sound (aum) and some others favorable vibrations. She is the summary and height of all Vedic instructions. It is the big mantra for deliverance of mind from the anxieties of material life and it is transcendental vibration made by chanting and singing:

Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare

Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

This is elevated process of enlivening our spiritual consciousness. As a live spirit soul, we are all beings originally conscious of God, but since that we are from time immemorial in the contact with mater; our consciousness is polluted by material environment. This material environment in which we are all living now, on Sanskrit language is called Maya or illusion. Maya means "this which is not"


What is an illusion?

Illusion is our trying to become masters of material nature even though we are very much bound to her complex lows. When a servant is trying to imitate almighty lord, that is called an illusion. We are trying to use natural recourses of material nature but we are getting more and more entangled in her complex laws. Therefore, if we are striving to overpower nature we are getting more dependent to it. This illusory fight against the material nature can end by revival of our eternal consciousness of God.

Krishna consciousness is not forced consciousness imposed to the mind. It is original, natural energy of the living entity. These three words: Hare, Krishna and Rama are presenting transcendental seed of maha mantra. By chanting of the mantra, conditioned soul is praying to the Lord and to His energy to protect him. This is like a real cry of a baby to his mother.


MEANING OF THE WORDS IN MANTRA?

HARE ( Hara - spiritual energy, in vocative case Hare " o, spiritual energy". KRISHNA ("The one who is all attractive", most intimate Lords name) and RAMA ("The one who is the sours of all satisfaction", one more beautiful Lords name), are some of the countless names of God.

Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare

Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare

God has many names and all of them are addressing the same Elevated Personality, just as the sun is one, but in the different parts of the world it has different names (sun, sunce, surya, sole, sohne, etc.). Let us take shelter in this all auspicious mantra.
