The Perfection of Chanting Hare Krsna / Совершенство воспевания Харе Кришна

“The purification of one’s chanting hari-nama means as soon as you chant the holy name of Krsna you will see the form of Krsna, realize the qualities of Krsna, remember the pastimes of Krsna. That is pure chanting of Hare Krsna mantra. That is stated in the commentary of Srila Jiva Goswami: that a pure devotee who chants Hare Krsna mantra immediately realizes the nama, rupa, guna, lila – everything about Krsna, simply by chanting the names. You will feel the form of Krsna. You will remember all His qualities. ‘Oh, Krsna is so qualified – He is so magnanimous.’ Then you will remember His lila pastimes: ‘Oh, Krsna instructed Arjuna. Krsna played with His cowherd boys. Krsna had very nice talks with the gopis, with His mother, Yasoda.’ These things you will remember. That is the actual perfection of chanting.”

[ Srila Prabhupada quoted in ‘Srila Prabhupada Lilamrita’ Volume 4, Every Town and Village – Around the World. 1968 – 1971 ]

Шива – Кришне / Such Happiness

Я вернулся домой, в Шри Вриндавана-дхаму – и я счастлив, принимая прибежище святых имен:

«Служу Тебе и поклоняюсь, молитвы предлагаю и воспеваю имена – и неизбывно счастье.
Лишь только прекращаю – и счастья тоже нет»

[Господь Шива – Господу Кришне в “Брахма-вайварта-пуране” 1.6.14 ]


I have arrived back home in Sri Vrindavan Dhama and am happily taking shelter of the holy names: “My happiness is uninterrupted while serving You, worshiping You, offering prayers to You and chanting Your holy names. When these activities are finished, my happiness is also finished.”
[ Lord Siva to Lord Krsna in the Brahma-vivarta purana ]
