Every moment, in each breath, while eating, sleeping, and working, we should remember the Lord's Name.

Obeisance to You, O Lord, who yield the fruit of all actions and are omniscient or revealed in the form of Mantras. Salutations to You in the form of Shri Krishna, who is supreme virtue personified and is possessed of unobstructed wisdom, nay, who is the most ancient Person, the Lord of both Sankhya the path of knowledge and Yoga the path of Action. (from Bhagavata Purana "The hymn sung by Lord Shiva" )

Sri Krishna

satyam jnanam anantam

 brahma-sivadi-stutam bhajad-rupam

govindam tam acintyam

hetum adosam namasyamah

Lord Govinda is the Supreme Brahman, the absolute transcendental reality. He is transcendental knowledge. He is the original cause of all causes. He is limitless and faultless. Lord Siva and all the demigods praise Him. The devotees worship His transcendental form. We offer our respectful obeisances unto Him. [source:Sri Vedanta-sutra, Introduction by Srila Baladeva Vidyabhusana]

19.We meditate on that pure, taintless, immortal and highest Reality which is untouched by sorrow and by which (manifested in the form of Lord Narayana) was graciously brought to light at the beginning of creation this matchless lamp of wisdom to Brahma (the creator) and as Brahma to (the celestial sage) Narada, as Narada to the sage Krishna (Vedavyasa) and as the latter to the sage Suka (the prince among the Yogis) and in the form of Suka, to Pariksit (the favoured of the Lord).
20.Hail to the celebrated Lord Vasudeva, the Witness (of all), who (for the first time) taught this Bhagavata-Purana out of grace to Brahma, who was keen to get liberated.
21.Hail to the sage Suka, that prince among the Yogis, the revealer of Brahma, who redeemed King Pariksit (the favoured of Lord Vishnu), bitten by the serpent in the form of (fear of) rebirth.
22.(Pray,) so ordain, O Ruler of the gods! that devotion to Your feet may sprout (in my heart) in every birth (that I may have to take); for You are our protector, O Lord!
23.I salute Sri Hari (the Dispeller of all fears and agony), the Supreme Lord, the loud chanting of whose Names is the (most efficacious and easiest) way to wipe out all sin and respectful salutation to whom alleviates (all) suffering.
[Thus ends the thirteenth discourse in Book Twelve of the great and glorious Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita, composed by the sage Vedavyasa and consisting of eighteen thousand Slokas.
(Rendered into English by C.L.Goswami, M.A.,Shastri)]


Kali-Santarana Upanishad

The Kali-Santarana Upanishad is a Sanskrit text attached to the Krishna Yajurveda. It is a minor Upanishad of Universal Religion. The Upanishad was likely composed before about 1500 CE, and it was popularized in the 16th century by Caitanya in the Gaudiya Vaishnavism tradition. The short text presents two verses called the Maha-mantra, containing the words ‘Hare’, ‘Krishna’ and ‘Rāma’. The word Hare or goddess Radha is repeated eight times, while the other two are Hindu gods Krishna and Rama who are repeated four times. At the end of the Dvapara Yuga sage Narada approached Brahma and requested him to enlighten him on the path he should follow to alleviate the detrimental effects of Kali Yuga. Brahma said that by way of taking the name of the supreme Lord Narayana, all the tribulations of Kali Yuga will be washed away. These sixteen names to be chanted are as:

“Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare,
Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare .”


Chanting of the sixteen word mantra is asserted by the text to be constantly done by sage Narada, who with his musical instrument tanpura has been doing it for ages. Apart from this Upanishad, chanting of this mantra has also been prescribed in Puranas such as Brahmananda Purana, the Agni Purana and so forth. In modern times, Lord Chaitanya who is believed to be the incarnation of Lord Krishna also preached chanting of this mantra. It should be chanted always irrespective of whether one is in a pure or impure condition. [ source: Aiyar, K. Narayanasvami. "Kali Santarana Upanishad". Vedanta Spiritual Library.
