Krishna and His name, both are similar. It is because Lord Krishna has put all his divine powers in His name. Chanting the holy name of Lord Krishna collectively means coming together and spreading the message of togetherness.
Lord Chaitanya stressed that the chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama ,Rama Rama Hare Hare, is the easiest means of self-realization. Mantras were only chanted softly until Lord Chaitanya started Harinam Sankirtan, the loud public and congregational chanting of the maha-mantra accompanied by musical instruments. He also taught the devotees to gracefully dance to the chanting. Once, one is caught up in the dancing and chanting, he becomes completely absorbed in the sound vibrations of the mantra. The mantra then enters his consciousness, purifies his heart and awakens his dormant love for Krishna. This style of chanting Krishna’s holy names also allows others, such as passers-by, animals and plants to benefit from the auspicious effects of the mantra.
Srila Prabhupada brought Harinam Sankirtan to the streets of cities, towns and villages around the world.
Through Harinam Sankirtan, all the devotees get the chance to connect with each other. This particular association gives lots of joy and happiness to Lord Krishna.
It is believed that when we chant the divine name of Lord Krishna, it destroys all the sinful thoughts. When people chant the name in the group, it is not just beneficial for them, but also benefit those who are moving around.
All the respected Acharyas from different Sampradaya have already given the greatest importance to this particular activity. You can also bring peace and joy in your life by chanting the holy name of Lord Krishna by joining this special Harinam Sankirtan at ISKCON Dwarka.
