The Hare Krsna maha-mantra represents the sound of Krsna's flute:


"The vibration of Krsna's flute is always prominent in the ears of the

gopis. Naturally they cannot hear anything else. Constant remembrance of the

holy sound of Krsna's flute keeps them enlightened and enlivened, and they

do not allow any other sound to enter their ears. Since their attention is

fixed on Krsna's flute, they cannot divert their minds to any other subject.

In other words, a devotee who has heard the sound of Krsna's flute forgets

to talk or hear of any other subject. ****This vibration of Krsna's flute is

represented by the Hare Krsna maha-mantra.**** A serious devotee of the Lord

who chants and hears this transcendental vibration becomes so accustomed to

it that he cannot divert his attention to any subject matter not related to

Krsna's blissful characteristics and paraphernalia."


Cc Madhya 21.144


The Hare Krsna mantra on its own is capable of awarding one all perfections

including our siddha deha & ekadasha bhava. Srila Gaurakishore Das Babaji

Maharaj used to say that the Holy Name itself reveals to us all the eleven

characteristics of our spiritual body. We should simply take shelter of the

Name alone. Actually speaking there is no need of any siddha-pranali or any

other mantra.


This is confirmed by Thakura Bhaktivinoda as follows:


krsna-nama dhare koto bal...


purna vikasita hoiya, braje more jaya loiya,

dekhay more swarupa-vilas

more siddha-deha diya, krsna-pase rakhe giya,

e dehera kore sarva-nas


7)" Blossoming fully, the flower of the holy name takes me to Vraja and

reveals to me His own love-dalliance. This name gives to me my own eternal

spiritual body, keeps me right by Krsna's side, and completely destroys

everything related to this mortal frame of mine."


>From Nama-mahatmya by Thakura Bhaktivinoda


[if you are by Krsna's side then obviously you will hear Krsna's flute.]


Your servant,

Nayana-rañjana d€sa
