Joshua Tree, Calif.; April 15, 2011:  Shyamdas chants the Maha Mantra as only he can in this little snippet of satsang from his set at Bhakti Fest Spring Ommersion.  In his inimitable style, Shyamdas tells the sweet story of the Indian saint who got the words to the Maha Mantra  (Hari Krishna, Hari Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hari Hari, Hari Rama Hari Rama, Rama Rama, Hari Hari) wrong and chanted Hari Mara (which means to destroy) instead of Hari Rama.  Despite his mistake, Hari was compassionate, and the misguided kirtaniya became enlightened anyway because his heart was in the right place. 

Message: the words are less important than the intention behind them.  Just chant.
