Jayapatākā Swami: Tell them to chant the name that they have faith in. In the Quran it mentions 99 names. So, some of those names seem very similar to Vedic names. There is no restriction if they chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. But if they don’t want, they can chant whatever name they have faith in, the name of God. In South America one Christian nun she started chanting Jesu Kṛṣṭa Jesu Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa Jesu Jesu. Afterwards she felt ‘let me try Hare Kṛṣṇa, it is very simple.’ And she chanted Hare Kṛṣṇa Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare / Hare Rāma Hare Rāma, Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare and she got the same pleasure as chanting the name of Jesus, but more! So then she started to chant Hare Kṛṣṇa japa. Now she is initiated. She is still a Christian nun.
