someone doesn’t have another name or if, is one is open minded and conceive that this names are effective, so why not chant them? Then we invite everyone to take this opportunity and chant Hare Krishna kirtans. Krishna’s just a name for God in Sanskrit, but these names are very time-proved to be successful. There are other names which are also names of God but may address different mood or aspect of, the Lord or a different it’ll be a different, so there are different kind of vibration, which may not be as effective for purification. Still it will be more effective than another process in this particular day. The vibration is the way of purification, vibrating these sacred or transcendental names.
