Jayapataka Swami: I don’t know if you are chanting the Panca Tattva mantra? By chanting the Panca Tattva mantra, very quickly, we can develop a taste for the chanting. It is important to avoid the ten offences to the holy name. We should, in our chanting, we can chant very mechanically or we can chant very spontaneously. So, chanting before the deities, or before a picture, it helps to concentrate the mind on the chanting, and sometimes we may chant using a different melody. Like sometime we chant Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare! (Guru maharaj sang a melody). Or sometimes we may chant Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare (Guru maharaj chanted fast and emphatically!) Or we may chant Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare! (Guru maharaj sang a different melody) Sri Krsna Caitanya Prabhu Nityananda Sri Advaita Gadadhara, Srivas Adi Gaura Bhakta Vrnda. So getting a taste for chanting is, after we take initiation, we clear the anarta nivritti stage, we get fixed up in the nista stage, and the next stage is taste, ruci. So, constant ruci develops in due course as we reach the other levels.
