Rama:Balarama and Ramachandra

RAMA in the Maha Mantra can and does mean both BalaRama and Ramachandra!! One may meditate on either or Both Ramas. Some say that Rama as a Name of Our Lady Shakti is also indictated in the Mahamantra. Since both Krishna and San-KaRSHaNA… (Baladeva) are indicate by the Holy Name Krishna in the Mahamantra, either of Them may be indicated by the first, second or any combination of Krishnas in the Mantra.  HARE!, as a feminine invocative of Hari may also be an invocative of Hara, Shiva, thus this may honor either Radha-Lakshmi or Durga in union with the Lord, Hari (Krishna-Vishnu) or Hara (Balarama-Shiva). Both Vaishnavas and Shaivites approach theLord through His Shakti! Hare! Hare! is like calling on Mother-Father!

Who was Jesus calling to on the Cross, when He called for ELOI! ELOI! ???????????????? This has been called the invocative form of the Holy Name ELI (Greek HELI, Egyptian HERU). Egyptian HERU-HOR and Hebrew ELI-EL are HARI-HARA, so WHO WAS JESUS CALLING TO ? Was HE calling for His Mother-Father actually using the Hebrew cognate of HARE!

If one becomes aware of the deep theological complexity contained in the outwardly simple formula of the MahaMantra, and begins to meditiate upon the Persons being summoned / called by these Holy Names, the revelatory depths of this Primal Nama Mantra become unfathomable!
