“Haridas Thakur revealed that the best way of chanting is loudly. That loud chanting is 100 times more effective than soft chanting. Because by loud chanting so many other living entities are benefitted by hearing Harinaam. Hearing the Hare Krishna mahamantra, animals, birds, beasts, even micro-organisms, they are all benefited. Therefore loud chanting is more effective.”
