In Gita (9.2), Sri Krishna says, “The religious practice [of chanting Hare Krishna] brings directly perceivable results, pratyakshavagamam dharmyam. And by regularly chanting Hare Krishna you will feel very happy FOREVER, su-sukham kartum avyayam.”

Commenting on this Gita verse, Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti said, “Pratyaksha means that this religious practice [of chanting Hare Krishna] brings devotion, direct experience of Sri Krishna and detachment, bhakti, anubhava and virakti (vairagya).”

In his comments, Madhusudana Sarasvati said, “This topmost dharma [i.e. chanting Hare Krishna] is the most purifying of all actions because it immediately uproots all of one’s sinful reactions from thousands of lifetimes, and destroys the cause of all sins i.e. ignorance.”

The golden avatara of Krishna prema, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who came to bless the world with Sri Harinama Sankirtana, personally described the amazing benefits and results of chanting Hare Krishna:

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu said, “In this age of Kali, the chanting of Krishna’s Holy Names is the best [spiritual] practice, nama-sankirtana—kalau parama upaya. Those who are really intelligent will worship Sri Krishna by congregationally chanting Krishna’s Holy Names, and thereby receive the lotus feet of Krishna, sankirtana yajne kalau Krishna aradhana, sei ta’ sumedha paya Krishna carana.

“The performance of Harinama sankirtana destroys all bad habits and undesirables (anarthas); produces all good fortune; and increases one’s love of God, nama sankirtana haite sarvanartha-nasha, sarva-shubhodaya Krishna premera ullasa.

“Harinama sankirtana destroys one’s sins and the endless cycle of birth and death; purifies the consciousness; and it manifests all varieties of sadhana bhakti, sankirtana haite papa samsara nashana, citta-shuddhi sarva-bhakti-sadhana-udgama.

“By chanting Hare Krishna one gets Krishna prema and the nectarean taste of love divine. And finally one attains the direct service of Krishna and submerges in an ocean of nectar, Krishna premodgama premamrta asvadana, Krishna prapti sevamrta samudre majjana!” (Cc. 3.20.8-14)

These are the wonderful results and benefits of chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra.

Harinama sankirtana ki jai! Jaya Jaya Sri Radhe!
