Brooklyn Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir Mantra Meditation:
Mantra meditation is a spiritual and religious practice that has its place in virtually all religious traditions, although the method of practice may differ. In the Vaishnava tradition (which includes Krishna devotees) this type of meditation has two basic forms. The first is individual practice and the second is congregational.
Individual Krishna devotees perform a daily program of personal prayer and meditation. This is centered on reciting the names of Krishna (God) using prayer beads to count the number of sung names. The prayer, or “mantra”, that they repeat is called Hare Krishna Maha Mantra:
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
The second form of this process, which is Congregationalist, includes the use of musical instruments. Instead of singing pearls, the mantra is sung. One person leads the song while others in the group respond. Depending on the circumstances, this religious performance is performed in Krishna temples or in public. In India, such public performances are very common and have lasted several centuries.
“Hare”, “Krishna” and “Rama” are all names used in the Vaishnava tradition that refer to God and His energies. Because God is spiritual and all-powerful if someone chants His name then they will become purified – materially and spiritually. This chanting is also considered a form of prayer whereby the devotee is appealing to the Lord to please engage the devotee in the Lord’s service.
Brooklyn Sri Sri Radha Govinda Mandir Vegetarianism:
There are two principles of Hare Krishna philosophy that are practically expressed through the practice of vegetarianism. These two principles are:
2. Service to God (Krishna)
Non-violence means not stopping the progressive life (material or spiritual) of every living being. According to the laws of karma and reincarnation, if an animal dies before the time runs out in that particular body, it must be reborn in the same body type to complete its remaining days and be promoted up to the end . following species. Therefore, its ascending evolution is verified through the different species of life. Therefore, killing animals simply to satisfy the demands of the palace is an act of material and spiritual violence.
As far as service to God is concerned in Bhagavad-gita it is said: “If one offers Me (Krishna) with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, a fruit or water, I will accept it.” (Bhagavad-gita 9.26)
Before eating anything devotees of Krishna perform a ceremony whereby they offer their food to God. This religious performance sanctifies the food and frees the person eating it from the karma involved in the collection and preparation of the ingredients.
Because in the Bhagavad-gita Krishna says that He will only accept food if it is vegetarian then Hare Krishnas only eat vegetarian food. This they do as an act of service to please God (Krishna).
