The Name-Distinct From Words

Posted on: October 8, 2015 Posted By: Gaudiya Mission

The name ‘Krishna’ is spiritual (Vaikuntha) unlike a material or proper name which acts as a symbol for the object and not for the object itself, namely water, which by constant repetition will not quench thirst. ‘Krishna’ is not only the name the Lord Himself — One and the Same. The Lord with His Forms, Attributes, Lila, Entourage and all that is His is same and identical with the Holy Name. The name is not a mundane word with its defects and limitations but the transcendental sound of infinite Potency and Beauty. The Holy name of Krishna is not a mundane word with its defects and limitations but the transcendental sound of fathomless potency and beauty. Repeated chanting of the name Hare Krishna with total submission can freed one from sins (Aparadha) under the counsel of a Sat-Guru (true spiritual teacher), serve the Holy Lotus Feet of the Lord. Chanting the mantras satisfies the Lord and purifies the mind of Sevakas (devotees). The chanting and the service of the Lord can properly be practiced by assembling number of devotees under the care and discipline of a Sat-Guru living in a congenial atmosphere. 

 

Mahaprabhu Sri Krishna Chaitanya has been delighted to proclaim with applause the saying of Brihad Naradiya Purana (38/126 Sloka) as in Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita, Adi, Chapter VII, Sloka 76:-

Harer nama Harer nama Harer namaiva kevalam 
Kalou nastyeva nastyeva nastyeva gatiranyatha

“The name of Hari, the name of Hari, Oh, the Name of Hari alone; nothing else in kaliyug, nothing else, Nothing Else can lead us to Goal.”
