The chant HARE KRISHNA:

hare krishna hare krishna

 Hare means God and it also means the one who takes away all our sins. krsna means all attractive. God attracts everyone; that is the definition of ‘God.’

In many pictures of Krishna, we see that He attracts the cows, calves, birds, beasts, trees, plants, and even the water in Vrindavana. He is attractive to the cowherd boys, to the gopis, to Nanda Maharaja, to the Pandavas, and to all human society. Therefore if any particular name can be given to God, that name is ‘Krishna.’

Srila Prabhupada said: God has no name, but by His qualities, we give Him names. If a man is very beautiful, we call him ‘beautiful.’ If a man is very intelligent, we call him ‘wise.’ So the name is given according to the quality. Because God is all-attractive, the name Krishna can be applied only to Him. Krishna means ‘all-attractive.’ It includes everything.
