The Hare Krishna Mantra
by Devavti dasi

("Pressed with Radharani's manjaris from the morning carnamrta water
on Radhastami, along with peacock feathers from Gita-Nagari, 2002")

"The real purpose of life is to become a devotee of the Lord. It does not matter where one is situated. Whether one is a brahmana, ksatriya, vaisya, sudra, American, Englishman, Indian, etc., one can execute devotional service anywhere and everywhere in the material existence simply by offering prayers unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The Hare Krsna maha-mantra is also a prayer, for a prayer addresses the Supreme Personality of Godhead by His name and invokes good fortune by petitioning the Lord to allow one to engage in His devotional service."

(Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.24.69, Purport)
