The transcendental vibration, caused by the chanting of Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare is the sublime method of reviving our transcendental consciousness. As living spiritual souls we are all originally Krishna conscious entities, but due to our association with matter, which has existed since time immemorial, our consciousness is now distorted by the material atmosphere. The material atmosphere, in which we now live is called maya or illusion. Maya means’ that which is not. ” And what is this illusion? The illusion is that we are all trying to be lords of material nature, while we are in reality in the violence of their strict laws. When a servant artificially tries to imitate the all-powerful master, it is said of him that he is in illusion. We try to exploit resources of material nature, but actually we are becoming more and more dependent on it. This illusory struggle against the material nature can at once be stopped if we revive our own Krishna consciousness.
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare is the transcendental
process of reviving this original consciousness. By chanting this transcendental vibration, we can cleanse away all baneful things in our hearts. The basic principle of all these ill-bringing things is the false consciousness that I am the Lord of all that I see.
Krishna consciousness is not an artificial influence of the Spirit. This consciousness is the original natural energy of the living entity. When we hear this transcendental vibration, this consciousness is revived.
This simplest method of meditation is recommended for the present age. By practical experience, we can see that one can immediately feel by chanting the maha-mantra, or the great chant for deliverance a transcendental ecstasy coming down from the spiritual realm. In material consciousness we are eagerly striving to satisfy our senses, as befänden
we are on the lower, animal stage. If you stand a little above the level of sense gratification, one is concerned with mental speculation to get out of the material prison. A little about this speculative stage, if one is intelligent enough, one tries, the supreme cause of all causes – within and outside of all things – to find out. If you actually located at the level of spiritual attainment, after leaving the stages of the senses, the mind and the intelligence behind them, you reach the transcendental level. The chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra comes from the spiritual platform, and thus this sound vibration is above all the lower levels of consciousness, namely sensual, mental and the intellectual. It is therefore not necessary to understand the language of the mantra, nor does it require mental speculation, nor any intellectual Uberlegung to chant this maha-mantra. He comes by itself, from the spiritual plane, and therefore everyone can take part in this chanting to bring without any qualification. On a more advanced level course is expected to force spiritual understanding one commits no offense.
At the beginning of love is not all transcendental ecstasies, which are eight in number manifest.They are: (1) solidification, as if you were dumb, (2) sweating, (3) Sichaufrichten of body hair, (4) breaking of the voice, (5) trembling, (7) crying in ecstasy and (8) Trance. But there is no doubt that once you get to the spiritual level, if chanting a while. The first feature of this is that you have the urge to dance to the chanting of the mantra. We have seen this practically. Even a child can take part in the chanting and dancing.
Of course, it takes on someone who is too entangled in material life, a little longer to get to this stage; but even such a materially contaminated person is charged very quickly on the spiritual level. When the mantra is chanted by a pure devotee of the Lord in love, he has on the listener the greatest effect, and therefore this chanting should be heard from the lips of a pure devotee of the helmet, so that immediate action can be achieved. As far as possible, one should avoid the chanting from the lips of non-devotees. Milk that has been touched by the lips of a serpent has poisonous effect.
