| "Kṛṣṇa has got many names, nāmnām akāri bahudhā nija-sarva-śaktis (Śikṣāṣṭaka 2). So of all the names, two names are very important: Rāma and Kṛṣṇa. Therefore in the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, the Rāma and Kṛṣṇa are there, and Kṛṣṇa's potency, Hare. So in the śāstra it is said that one thousand names of Viṣṇu... There is Viṣṇu's one thousand names, viṣṇu-sahasra-nāma. If one chants Viṣṇu's name—there are thousands—that is equal to one name Rāma. And three times chanting the name of Rāma is equal to one 'Kṛṣṇa'. Therefore we should take advantage to chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. Although there are many names of Kṛṣṇa, 'Kṛṣṇa' is the chief name, mukha, and Lord Caitanya chanted Hare Kṛṣṇa, Hare Kṛṣṇa, Kṛṣṇa Kṛṣṇa, Hare Hare/ Hare Rāma, Hare Rāma, Rāma Rāma, Hare Hare."
