MANTHRAS FOR ALL THE FOUR YUGAS!
All of us are aware that Hare Krishna Maha Manthra is the manthra recommended for Kaliyuga. But, there are manthras for other yugas also. It is very blissful to know that that most of us do not know so far.
Let us read them with additional details:
SATYA YUGA MANTHRA
Narayana Para Vedha Narayana Parakshara
Narayana Para Mukthir Narayana Para Gathi
In addition to chanting this manthra in Satya Yuga, the devotees were required to perform 1000s of years of penances because their life time was One lakh years. So, 1000s of years of penances were possible for them to get Krishna.

TRETA YUGA MANTHRA
Rama Narayana Anantha Mukuntha Madhusudhana
Krishna Kesava Kamsare Hare Vaikunta Vamana
In addition to chanting this manthra in Treta Yuga, the devotees were required to perform many years of Yagna/ Homa because their life time was Ten thousand years. So, years of yaga/ yagna were possible for them to get Krishna.
DVAPAR YUGA MANTHRA
Hare Murare Madhu-kai Abare
Gopala Govindha Mukunda Sowre
In addition to chanting this manthra in Dvapar Yuga, the devotees were required to worship 100s of temples and serve there because their life time was Thousand years. So, visiting that much of temples was possible for them to get Krishna.

KALI YUGA MANTHRA
Hare krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
In this present kali yuga, the life time of people is just below 100 years. So, all the above extra penances are not possible in kali yuga. They can not complete them. So, we are fortunate NOT TO HAVE all other penances, but, just chant Hare Krishna Maha Manthra as much as possible to go back to Krishna’s abode. No need for penances and yagas in the kali yuga.
So, Chant Hare Krishna as a devotee with materially detached mind following regulative disciplinary principles and Go back to the Lord.
It is easy. Possible to everyone.
