World Holy Name Week

A celebration of the spiritual practice of chanting God’s names . The event also marks the 50th Anniversary of ISKCON’s founder-acarya, Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada ‘s accepting vows of renunciation, or sanyasa, thus launching his mission to spread the chanting of God’s names around the world. Swami Prabhupada, who came to America by cargo ship in 1965 at the age of seventy, is honored as the first to carry the millennia-old tradition of Krishna worship–with its special emphasis on the Hare Krishna mantra, or sacred chant– outside of India.

Although the Hare Krishna mantra is rooted in the ancient Vaishnava faith, a monotheistic denomination within the broad Hindu tradition, the practice of chanting – individually and congregationally – is found in most faith traditions.The chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/ Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare goes back thousands of years. The mantra translates as “Oh Supreme Lord, of Divine Energy of the Lord, please engage me in Your service.” The chanting gained prominence in the early part of the 16th century, when a Bengali mystic named Chaitanya Mahaprabhu revitalized the devotional tradition by introducing an expansive spiritual movement that swept India. Central to this renaissance was Chaitanya’s emphasis on the public chanting of Krishna’s name.
