Some selected comments from yo tube for this video
The droning repetition of this particular mantra gives my spine the chills! Beautiful Krishna video and love the Durga Das music!
Lila - great job on the new video - the chant is hyptnotic and relaxing - what is the meaning and or use of the mantra?
Hi RKS, thanks, it loosely means "I surrender at the feet of the Divine" (Krishna). The Sanskrit carries an energy vibration, the Divine in sound. It is said to be like a medicine to heal and transform ones life (your vibration) to be like the Divine, your true nature...all-knowing, ever-new, continuous Bliss though beyond even this duality.
Powerful chant and video!
Jai Shri Krishna, Sri Krishna sharana Mama Chants gives peace of mind.Good job by artists and made serene.
