What Students Say:

  • I’ve enjoyed and benefited a lot from the offerings at Chant Now for two years, which have been instrumental in supporting me as a beginner on my bhakti journey. The mentors are experienced, helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable, and it’s always a pleasure attending their classes, which always ‘lift’ me and help keep me mindful and grateful of the wonders and magic of Krishna’s universe."

  • In my many wanderings trying to find the truth about myself, I came to Chant Now website page. And I became so much satisfied with the deep knowledge and understanding that I got. Now, I've gotten something bigger, Krishna, the Supreme Absolute Truth. My sincere appreciation to Prabhu Urugaya for his selfless service in helping me better understand the rudimentary philosophy of Krishna Consciousness.
    Richard Kwesi Appiah, Ghana
  • I really enjoyed working through the Mantra Meditation course. I had already been chanting for a few months when I started, but I learned some specific ways in which to deepen my practice. I also enjoyed the prompts given for items to reflect upon, and the additional videos that showed chanting in a slightly wider context. Taking the course has encouraged me to incorporate chanting into my daily life for the long term. Thank you, and Hare Krishna!"
    Jessica Davey
  • There was a time in my life when I was pretty down. Somehow I came across the maha-mantra starting with the 7 lesson Challenge, which changed my life in an extraordinary way. I am not so strong in my daily practice, but I am trying. However, the support I get from my friends at Chant Now is invaluable. I am forever indebted!

What is the maha mantra?
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare

The literal meaning of maha-mantra is “The Great Chant of Deliverance.” While there are many mantras like ‘OM’ etc., the maha-mantra is the most powerful mantra in existence, also known as the Hare Krishna mantra. It has been a core practice of the ancient Bhakti Yoga tradition for thousands of years. Regular chanting of this mantra under proper guidance relieves one from stress, anxiety, and depression and instantly puts the practitioner in touch with a higher transcendental reality. Whether you are looking to improve your mental well-being, have greater focus and clarity, or have a genuine spiritual experience, meditating on this mantra will help you achieve your goals quickly.
Is chanting a form of meditation?
Yes! In fact, it is the best and easiest technique for meditation because it uses the transformative power of sound, allowing the restless wandering mind to concentrate on it easily and not get easily distracted by mental chatter, which is the number one source of distraction for beginners. Chanting on beads is especially beneficial, as it engages the sense of touch and speech and auditory functions in the meditation process.
What is bhakti yoga?
Bhakti is derived from the Sanskrit word bhaj, which means – loving service. Bhakti-yoga means to connect to the Supreme by means of loving devotional service. The path of bhakti-yoga is developed through a variety of activities. These include mantra meditation or the chanting of the names Hare Krishna. The chanting is done either individually or in the community by chanting mantras accompanied by music (kirtan). The study of sacred texts such as the Bhagavad-gita, associating with like-minded spiritual aspirants, eating sanctified vegetarian food, and living in a way that upholds the principles of truthfulness, mercy, austerity, and cleanliness, are all core practices for a life of followers of bhakti.
Who is Srila Prabhupada?
Srila Prabhupada is the founder acharya (spiritual head) of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. Srila Prabhupada not only brought bhakti yoga and the Hare Krishna maha-mantra to the western world but also circled the globe 14 times on lecture tours, bringing the teachings of Lord Krishna to thousands of people on six continents.
