     The ecstasy with which the Krishna Consciousness devotees dance and jump at the musical chanting of this mantra, accompanied by cymbals, singly and collectively, for hours together, is a sight to be seen to be believed. God is harih, because the root word har means to destroy; He destroys samsaara (= the cycle of births and deaths) as well as sins of man. He carries away ( = harati) the sins of even evil-minded people. He attracts everything by His charm, therefore He is Krishna. He is Krishna, also because the root Kr indicates Existence and the syllable na indicates Bliss. By His very existence He gives bliss, therefore Krishna. From this meaning several traditions about the word Krishna have arisen. Whatever ritualistic purifications are prescribed in the form of penances and sacrifices, they are all superseded by the very remembrance of Krishna the Lord -- says an age-old verse. Says another such verse: The only medicine to cure the one bitten sharply by the serpent of samsaara is the great mantra glorifying the Lord Vishnu, namely 'Krishna'. The sanctity of the hare krishna mantra goes back to one of the Upanishads, known as kali-santarana-Upanishad
    Om Sai Ram !

  • OM SRI SAI RAM

    Once, Rukmini Devi, the Maharani of Sri Krishna asked her beloved in an accusing way that why did he loved Arjuna so much, so openly that his partial treatment was so visible; whether would it be OK for a person like Krishna who himself is the GOD and also that while all the Pandavas were equally worshipping him, listening to him and dependent on him alike, why this speciality to Arjuna alone.

    Krishna did not answer. That is his style. Several years had passed. Once Arjuna came to Dwaraka to see Krishna. After a heavy lunch, Arjuna went for a short afternoon nap.

    Now, Our Krishna called his Maharani and reminded her of the doubt asked long back and told her to go to the place Arjuna was sleeping and listen. As Rukmini Devi went near, she heard EACH AND EVERY STRAND OF THE HAIR OF ARJUNA CHANTING THE NAME SRI KRISHNA LIKE JAPAM. She was astonished. Her doubt got clarified.

    That was the self surrender to GOD.
