"Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare"
"So we are praying to Radharani, 'My Mother, Radharani, and Krishna.' Hare Krishna. 'O Krishna, O the Lord.' Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, the same thing, repetition. 'O Radharani, O Krishna.' 'O Radha-Krishna.' 'Radha-Krishna' or 'Hare Krishna.' The same thing. 'Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare.' Again addressing, 'O Krishna, O Krishna, O Radharani.' Hare Rama. The same thing, again. Hare Rama. Rama is also Krishna. Rama is Rama, Rama is Balarama. They are all Krishna. Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare. So this repetition of addressing Radha and Krishna or Hare Krishna is to pray: 'My dear Lord, and the energy, the spiritual energy of the Lord, kindly engage me in Your service.' That’s all. 'I am now embarrassed with this material service. Please engage me in Your service.'"
