Love For Krishna Through Sankirtana

The ultimate aim of this Krishna consciousness movement is to join with Radha and Krishna in Their dancing party. To join with Krishna and His energies in the spiritual world. But to do that we require love for Krishna.

Now, how to get that love for Krishna? we say krsna-prema-pradaya te, Caitanya Mahaprabhu is giving love for Krishna. But how is He doing that? He has started the Hare Krishna movement- you got to the Hare Krishna temple and you put in your requisition: I want love for Krishna. On Friday we will deliver it if you give your order by six o'clock on Thursday. How is this love for Krishna being distributed? How do we get it? That love for Krishna is available trough sankirtan.

We think that this sankirtan, this chanting of Hare Krishna maybe a ritual or as there are so many rituals done in different religions, in Hindu religion, in Christioan religion... so this is another ritual; chanting Hare Krishna. Or this is some sorth of meditation or yoga practice. Or something to bring a peace of mind... but actualy all... of course all of therse things are there- By chanting Hare Krishna one gets a peace of mind, by chanting Hare Krishna the heart becomes pure, by chanting Hare Krishna one gets free from sinful reactions, by chanting Hare Krishna so many benefits are there. But the real purpose of chanting, the real benefit of chanting Hare Krishna is that by chanting one gets love of Krishna

By chanting Hare Krishna one can get love of Krishna. That is what Caitanya Mahaprabhu is doing with this sankirtan movement. He is giving the living beings the opportunity to develop love for Him. Love for Him means love for Radha and Krishna. sri-krsna-caitanya radha-krsna nahe anya; there is no difference between Caitanya Mahaprabhu and Radha and Krishna; except the Caitanya Mahaprabhu is even more, is most approachable. He is freely giving. because Srimati Radharani is more merciful than Krishna, and now Krishna is taking the mood of Srimati Radharani, He is giving love for Himself trough this harinam sankirtan. golokera prema-dhana, hari-nama-sankirtana this chanting of Hare Krishna gives love for Krishna.

Of course we have to chant for some time, we have to practice chanting Hare Krishna. But by practicing in this chanting our taste develops, and in the mature stage of chanting Hare Krishna one gets love for Krishna. One gets love for Krishna. Therefore, golokera prema-dhana, this chanting Hare Krishna is not a material vibration- it is coming from the spiritual world, and it is putting us in touch with Radha-Krishna. Krishna is Krishna, and Hare, we are calling out for Srimati Radharani, energy of Krishna. O Krishna, O energy of Krishna, please engage me in Your service. The ultimate perfection of chanting Hare Krishna is that one will get love of Krishna. krsna-prema-pradaya te

golokera prema-dhana, hari-nama-sankirtana, especially when we chant together, many devotes together, that love for Krishna starts to reawaken within the heart sravanadi-suddha-citte karaye udaya; the heart becomes purified. Actually love of Krishna is there in the heart of everyone, nitya-siddha krsna-prema sadhya kabhu naya, this is our original love. Now we have love of money, love of this and that. But our real consciousness, eternal consciousness, natural, healthy consciousness is love of Krishna. It is already there within the heart of everyone, it just needs to come out. And it comes out by this process of hearing and chanting. Actually by hearing and chanting and if you like dancing. And by chanting and dancing in Krishna consciousness very quickly one advances, step by step, on the path towards love for Krishna. So this is the method.

...not simply by going to the library and taking out the book and reading... we may read all about Radha and Krishna and at the end of reading not understand anything or understand less, because we think, now i understand.

But actually to understand is possible when ones heart is purified and the heart becomes purified by the grace of the Holy Name of Krishna and by the grace of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu who is distributing this Holy Name trough the Krishna Consciousness movement.

Srila Prabhupada came to give this gift of chanting of Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. So let us go on chanting Hare Krishna and that will lead us toward the highest perfection of life.
