In this difficult time when scores of people are dying daily because of Coronavirus all over the world, Iskcon Chowpatty has come up with a novel idea of fighting this disease by invoking the mercy of the Lord.
To invoke auspiciousness saints and sages have always recommended that we should perform yajna. And in this age of Kali Yuga scriptures recommend sankirtan yajna i.e. congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord like the Hare Krishna Mahamantra – Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
The more we chant the names of the Lord, we create more auspiciousness.
Almost everyone agree that we are suffering from this pandemic because we the human beings have acted against the laws of nature. Our current suffering is because of the sins committed by mankind against other living entities.
And the best way to remove the sins from the world is by chanting the names of the Lord. If people from all over the world come together to call the names of the Lord, then soon the suffering caused by Coronavirus will end.
Iskcon Chowpatty is inviting everyone to participate in this japa yajna. The goal is to chant 1 crore Holy Names of the Lord from April 1st – April 15th.
One has to just invest 15 min daily in this campaign from 7:30 am – 7:45 am IST. The entire country is under lockdown. All educational institutions are closed, offices are closed. If people are working, then they are working only from their homes so taking out 15 minutes daily is not a very difficult thing to do.
It takes around 7 minutes to complete one round of chanting which consists of 108 beads. So in 15 minutes one can complete two rounds of Hare Krishna Mahamantra on the beads.
15 minutes is not mandatory. One can spend even 10 min or even 5 min for chanting.
The collective japa – yajna will start everyday from 7:30 am – 7:45 am IST or (GMT + 5.30).
Not just people from India but people from all over the world can participate in this yajna.
