Mantra Meditation the heart of the Sunday Program is designed to meditate on the Supreme Lords potency. In the age of Kali lord’s potency is descended in the form of name. The following verse is quoted in Chaitanya Charitamrta Adilila regarding the potency of Lord’s name:
harer nāma harer nāma
harer nāmaiva kevalam
kalau nāsty eva nāsty eva
nāsty eva gatir anyathā (CC-Adi-Lila 7.76)
For spiritual progress in this Age of Kali, there is no alternative, there is no alternative, there is no alternative to the holy name, the holy name, the holy name of the Lord
