Question: Bhakti Nityananda Swami: Mahaprabhu told every town and village, it will be spread, My name. It is Hare Krsna maha mantra or My name. We know philosophically He is Krsna but that is my doubt. My Name or Maha Mantra?

Jayapataka Swami: My name means He is Krsna.
Bhakti Nityananda Swami: Yes, He is Krsna, philosophically we understood. But when Nityananda prabhu and other devotees used to chant, Gauranga! Gauranga! Then He used to stay, stop it and He used to close His ears. So?
Jayapataka Swami: So when He said, My name, He meant Krsna, He meant the name of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. But we chant both! Sri Krsna Caitanya Prabhu Nityananda Sri Advaita Gadadhara Srivas Adi Gaura Bhakti Vrnda,  Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare! So there is no problem. We do both! Jai Sacinandanda! Jai Gaura Hari! Jai Nitai! And then Srila Prabhupada said that in Mayapur we can chant the mantra that is very dear to Lord Caitanya. Hari haraya nama Krsna Yadava nama Hari, Gopal Govinda Ram Sri Madhusudan!
