The Sweet Nectar of Krishna's Names
If we want to taste the sweetest, more inconceivably sublime nectar, all we have to do is take complete shelter of
Lord Krishna's most wonderful and merciful holy names. Of course since God is unlimited He has unlimited thousands, millions,
and billions of names. But out of His unlimited names the Vedic scriptures in the Kali Santarana Upanisad specifically recommend
that we chant one particular mantra because it is the most powerful and effective mantra for achieving spiritual perfection
in the present highly degraded age of Kali. That mantra is as follows:
Hare Krishna, Hare
Krishna Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare
Since the more we give our undivided attention to these sweet names,
the more intensely we connect with them, it is advised that we should rise early and chant our daily quota during the most
peaceful, undisturbed time of the day before the sunrise. If we will regularly chant the Hare Krishna mantra in this way on
a daily basis, we will rapidly advance on the pathway of pure bhakti and gradually qualify ourselves to regain our original
identities as inhabitants of that wondrous eternal spiritual sky.
Hare Krishna ...
