Rama in the Hare Krishna Maha mantra --Please Help!
Hi , i'm from south india, i came in touch with iskcon 2 years ago. For the last 6 months i'm trying to practice krishna consciousness a little seriously. i have a big confusion sticking to my mind. When chanting hare rama in the hare krishna mantra ...lord ramachandra comes to my mind. but i do not want to divert my attention to the other forms of the lord. I want to refer rama as krishna (radhika ramana) but i am not able to do so. i'm feeling anxiety when chanting due to this. my chanting has worsened since this issue came to my mind. i also read prabhupad's purport that it does not matter if one refers to lord ramachandra or balarama when chanting hare rama because both are the same but still personally i want to refer rama as krishna (radhika ramana) as i dont want to divert my mind even to the other forms of the lord. being a south indian when i say rama naturally lord ramachandra comes to my mind as i have been observing from childhood but now i want to change this reference to the form of krishna. kindly help as i'm not able to chant properly because of this. what can i do now? kindly take some time and help me regarding this. i have a desire to serve the orginal form of the lord as krishna.
