I’m chanting hare krishna mahamantra but sometimes i feel more attracted towards ‘om namoh bhagwate vasudevaye’! apart 16 rounds of hare krishna, can & shoould i chant extra rounds of ‘om namoh bhagwate vasudevaye’ or preferably ‘hare krishna mahamantra’ only.

    Thank you for the wonderful reply. Before hearing your answer I myself thought about the answer for sometime. But when I heard your reply I found it to be so much more complete & reflecting much more broad perspective. Specially below 3 points I really liked:
    1. How in the beginning you appreciated/ encouraged
    2. The discrimination needed while doing devotional activiteis in public
    3. Instead of going deeper our tendency to search for newer & newer things in devotional life.

    Last 2 points are so much relevant not only to chanting but to so many other aspects of KC too. Very helpful. Thank you very much.
