Janavallabha Das Wloka and an Ayurveda training group sing the Mahamantra in a Saturday evening satsang at Yoga Vidya Bad Meinberg, Germany. To sing along you can find the lyrics of this mantra in the Yoga Vidya kirtan songbook under the number 699i or here:

Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare /
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare //

The Hare Rama Hare Krishna Mantra is considered Maha Mantra, the great mantra. The Maha Mantra is the great mantra to experience the divine. It opens the heart, leads to the experience of love and joy. This mantra has sixteen different words, so it is also considered the sixteen mantra, Shodashi mantra, the mantra of the sixteenth. It is also the mantra that applies to Hari, Rama and Krishna. Hari is of course Vishnu, Hari means "yellow", Hari is also called "radiant", Hari also means "that attracts the hearts of all". Rama means "one who is full of joy," Krishna means "the black," "the dark," and thus "the mysterious." And so "Hare Rama Hare Krishna" is the aspect that connects all three aspects of Vishnu: Rama, Krishna and Hari.
