Hare Krishna... Why am I chanting this so frequently?

Hare Krishna Hare Rama Madan Mohan Ji

Hare Krishna Hare Rama

I believe in God. I pray to God everyday. But I am not someone who chants God all the time like my grandparents do. Then why am I chanting "Hare Krishna" so frequently?  I wondered myself. I got my answer when I went to give darshan to Madan Mohan ji at Karouli, Rajasthan. I didn't even know about this famous Krishna ji temple, visiting this place was out of question. But Krishna ji has His plans. The very moment I saw Krishna ji inside this temple I understood why I have been chanting His name so frequently. Tears rolled down from my eyes. This reminded me of my unique experience at the ISKCON temple some years ago.

Since childhood every year I go to ISKCON temple on Janmashtami. But something happened after I started worshiping Mahadev.  I can never forget Janmashtami of the year when I first started worshiping Shiv ji. I experienced something very different when I saw the majestic beautiful Krishna ji wrapped in a soft silk attire, covered with fresh and colorful flowers. Tears started rolling from my eyes non-stop. I was not able to understand what was going on. I was not able to stop those tears rolling from my eyes. I felt that Krishna ji was upset with me. I felt Him saying "I was always there in your prayers. Why have you stopped worshiping me?". 

There is something about Lord Krishna. Whenever I go far away from His Belief and Existence, He makes sure that I come back, He pulls me in. Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare...
