New Delhi Things to Do: 437 reviews and 888 photos
Krishna is a name of the Supreme. It means "all- attractive." Anything that might attract you has its source in the Supreme. Therefore the Supreme is also known as Rama. "Rama" means "the highest eternal pleasure."
All of us are pleasure-seeking creatures. So you can say that directly or indirectly we are all seeking Krishna. Chanting Hare Krishna is a way of seeking Krishna directly.
As for the word "Hare" (pronounced huh-ray), it's a call to Krishna's divine energy. Just as the sun shines forth to us through its energies like heat and light, the Supreme reveals Himself through His multitude of energies.
Chanting Hare Krishna brings out that natural, pure state of mind. The chant is called a mantra, a vibration of sound that cleanses the mind, freeing it from anxiety and illusion.
Directions: Sant Nagar Main Road (Garhi), behind Nehru Place Complex
