Propagator of the greatest spiritual sound vibration
Ancient sages declare that there are particular spiritual sounds, or mantras that emanate from a spiritual stratum. If one is able to connect with such a pure sound, then one can derive immense benefit that will help one progress through all the materialistic clutter, and help awaken pure consciousness.
Srila Prabhupada had implicit faith in the chanting of these holy names as a means to liberate the soul from its entanglement in the material world. He taught that the chanting should be done as a daily personal meditation as a means to reinvigorate one’s spiritual consciousness, counteract the distress of this age, and develop love of God. He also gave us the ecstatic collective chanting called kirtan. Using both traditional Indian and Western musical instruments, the chanting of the mantra on the streets by ecstatic groups of followers is nowadays a regular sight in the West. That ‘Hare Krishna’ became a household name all over the world is directly attributed to the effort and purity of Srila Prabhupada.
