Japa 4

"The holy name of Krishna is the spiritually blissful giver of all benedictions for it is Krishna himself, the resevoir of pleasure. Krishna's name is complete in itself and is the essential form of all spiritual relationships. It is not a material name under any condition, and it is no less powerful than Krishna himself. This name is not tinged by any aspect of material nature, because it is identical with Krishna." (Padma Purana)

Because chanting the name of God is so much emphasized in Vaishnava texts, practitioners focus on chanting as acentral devotional method. Thus, deep meditation and great emotion accompany japa (the soft chanting), kirtan (the loud chanting), and sankirtan (the congregational chanting). When perfected, the chanting leads to awareness of God's absolute nature. Elucidation on the absolute nature of Krishna and his name is the heart of Vaishnava mysticism, leading to love of God.

–LET US NOT MAKE OUR STOMACH A GRAVEYARD. LET US NOT EAT FLESH. LET US BE VEGETARIANS AND STAY HEALTHY. Animals are to be loved, not eaten. Eating flesh is good neither for the mind nor for the intellect, not even for the body. It distorts the basic character of human. Think Soul is Soul and it came from the Supreme Soul…God Head Krishna

Chant:
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare
