Hare Krishna Mantra
The Hare Krishna mantra is a chant recommended in India's oldest books of wisdom, the Vedas, for those seeking to improve their consciousness to the greatest possible degree. Also known as the maha-mantra—great chant—it consists of three Sanskrit names of the Supreme Being; "Hare," "Krishna," and "Rama." Chanting the Hare Krishna mantra is said to bestow perfect happiness, God realization, freedom from repeated birth and death, and total self-fulfillment.
The mantra is most commonly translated as, "O Lord, O Energy of the Lord, please engage me in Your service." It was popularized in the sixteenth century by Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, and spread worldwide in the late twentieth century by Srila Prabhupada.
