The movement Hare Krishna is inserted in the oldest religious tradition that knowledge is had. It's the religion vaishnava (monoteísta; has millions of followers in India and in the Occident; it cultivates the devotion Vishnu or Krishna), that it is the main trunk of the compound denominated philosophical Hinduism.

Based on the conclusions of great authorities, the vaishnavas consider Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu an incarnation of Lord Krishna. 500 years ago in India happened an important movement, with popular bases, of rebirth of the feeling of Bhakti, devotion to God. The responsible for that spiritual revolution was great saint and philosopher Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, that it relived the practice of resonant meditation in the mantra Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

Caitanya Mahaprabhu also taught that any name regarding God (for instance, Jehovah, Alá, Krishna, Rama, etc.) it is completely pure and anybody, no matter what his religion, philosophy, culture or tradition, can practice this process of singing the saints names of God and like this to obtain all of the current benefits of this meditation practice, to know the end of the mental anxieties, control of the mind and of the senses, development of the conscience and the supreme proposal of all of the authentic religions: to develop pure love for God. This practice is based on the millenarian original Vedic knowledge of India.

This knowledge is arriving even us through a line of discipular succession, through a current of spiritual masters and disciples, authentic and uninterrupted, that comes from the origins of the creation. In this sequence of spiritual masters, is situated divine grace B.C.
