When someone asks me what we should meditate on when we chant the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra, I tell him you can meditate on the fact that Kṛṣṇa is His name. All His sweet pastimes are in His name. You can remember them. You can meditate and chant Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa. If anyone with worldly desires and worldly sense gratification unknowingly mixes with sādhu-saṅga, his life will change. If anyone remembers Kṛṣṇa and His associates at the time of death, then he will achieve the highest destination. Don’t have doubt; the sweet pastimes of Kṛṣṇa are so powerful. The name of Kṛṣṇa is so powerful.
