Please CHANT the names of God as in
HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA
KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE
HARE RAMA HARE RAMA
RAMA RAMA HARE HARE
This mantra has specifically been designed by the sages of the Holy Land of India and is therefore especially powerful in the current fallen age of Kali.
But “The second offense is to see the holy names of the Lord in terms of worldly distinction. The Lord is the proprietor of all the universes, and therefore He may be known in different places by different names, but that does not in any way qualify the fullness of the Lord. Any nomenclature which is meant for the Supreme Lord is as holy as the others because they are all meant for the Lord. Such holy names are as powerful as the Lord, and there is no bar for anyone in any part of the creation to chant and glorify the Lord by the particular name of the Lord as it is locally understood. They are all auspicious, and one should not distinguish such names of the Lord as material commodities. ” Srimad Bhagavatam 2.1.11 purport.
In other words, any name of God is alright. Important thing is to
CHANT, CHANT, CHANT.
There is an anecdote in this regard:
“Srila Prabhupäda sometimes referred to a magazine cartoon that depicted an old man and an old woman sitting across from each other; the wife was telling the husband, “Chant, chant, chant,” and the husband was replying, “Can’t, can’t, can’t.” This is our misfortune, our stubborn refusal, or reluctance, to chant. With the same effort it took the husband to refuse to chant, Srila Prabhupäda noted, he could have chanted.”

and also the same instance from a different perspective:
“There is a cartoon picture in New York, one old man and his wife, sitting together. The wife is requesting the husband, old husband, “Chant, chant, chant,” and the husband is replying, “Can’t, can’t, can’t.” [laughter] This cartoon we have seen. So this is the… He will say three times, “Can’t, can’t, can’t,” but not “Krishna, Krishna, Krishna.” That is not possible. A similar story is there in the Bengal. One old mother was dying, and the sons requested the mother, “Mother, now you say ‘Hare Krishna Hare Krishna.’ ” So after requesting two, three times, mother became disgusted: atha katha nivalta nare.[?] So atha katha nivalta nare[?] she could say. Not Hare Krishna. Not Hare Krishna. This is the position.” 730629BG.Kol
