Purport to Hare Krishna Maha Mantra

Los Angeles, July 10, 1971
Prabhupada: So this maha-mantra, Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, is being chanted by Brahma with his four mouths. Brahma-jape catur-mukhe. Brahma means Lord Brahma, and jape means he is chanting, catur-mukhe, with his four heads. Within this universe, only Brahma has got four heads. And Lord Siva sometimes exhibits five heads. So it is explained here that Lord Brahma is also chanting this Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare, with his four mouths. Still he is chanting. He does not think that he is satiated. This transcendental name is so sweet that either you chant with your one mouth and one tongue or with one thousand mouths or one thousand tongues, still, you will never feel tired. That is the purport of this song. Srila Rupa Gosvami, he lamented that "This Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare, these names are so sweet that how I can relish the transcendental sweetness with one tongue and one mouth? If God would have given me millions of tongues and millions of mouths, then I would have relished a little of it." So he lamented. Here also it is said that Narada Muni, he has got always with him a tampura, and he is traveling all over the universe constantly. He cannot stay in any place more than a few seconds, and he has no companion. But his only companion is that tampura and chanting Hare Krsna. Therefore it is said here, narada-yabe, vina-yantre, krsna krsna hare hare. (end)
