  1. Hi Please add Pancha tattva mantra before starting Maya mantra to avoid offenses. “Jai Shri Krishna Chaitanya, Prabhu Nityananda, Shri Advita- Gadadhara, Srivasadi, Gaura Bhakta Vrinda!”

  2. Sorry for the typo … “Maha Mantra”

  3. It also seems to be a protective mantra

    It also seems to have the power of invoking Shri Radha and Shri Krishna with Shri Ram so they could bless a devotee with whatever they choose or like.

    Besides the above, One of the things I always struggled with was playing societal games with people who don’t choose to help or resolve things simply. This mantra could leave those difficult games to be played on your behalf sometimes by the protectors within the Mantra. That is something very powerful for people like me who can fail within those games since I get annoyed by them.

  4. The vibrations of this Mantra invokes the help of Shri Radha and Shri Krishna with Shri Rama that is enough to create the miracles they want in your life or what you need! From the little reading of Isckon books I have done it seems like this world is a very small and easy to control for the ones in the Mantra as compared to how great and expansive this creation is with its many lokas and somewhat eternal never ending time scale managed by Shri Radha Krishna.

    Ever since I have added this Mantra to my mantra name chanting practice I feel a huge shift of spiritual influence of Radhe Krishna in my life!

    If one doesn’t read much and simply does this Mantra chanting practice, would that suffice?!?

  5. Thanks to Isckon and Shri A.C Bhaktivedanta Swamiji for his writing work and helping people! Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare!🙏🏽
