I remember from childhood that you say "Hare Rama" first.

If you know Hindi, you can see the following video where a Sankarachrya talks about it:


When did Gaudiya Vaishnavas reverse the order of the Mahamantra? Do non-sectarian Hindus and non-gaudiyas chant in the traditional order?

  • It seems they have reversed it..I personally chant Hare Rama first..But it really doesn't matter because when we chant this mantra several times it becomes cyclic and it's hard to say which word is being chanted first.. - hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/22774/12304

  • not true that the order doen't matter. they are long sentences and your breathing breaks will tell you which come first. apparenly it has been done deliberately.

    you are trying to prevent the question from being answered. Gauidiyas elevate krishna over all Hindu deities and this may be deliberate and may be there is documentaion as to who did it and when @YDS
