Everything is bound by time, but the maha mantra is eternal. So many things change in our life and it’s just amazing what can change but somehow or other this chanting never changes. It’s constant and is always there because the name Krsna is Krsna Himself, who descends from the spiritual world and who’s not bound by time. Therefore this is the one constant thing in life that stays and everything else may crumble with time. But this doesn’t crumble. Rather, every time we chant the mantra, it will never be lost and at each time we chant the Hare Krsna mantra it piles on top of each other and just builds up and in this way our chanting will just gain in strength, in depth and gradually it will take over everything. At that stage one becomes transcendental.
