Meditation, distraction, and chanting

How can one achieve mental satisfaction and devotion through chanting, especially when it's so easy to become distracted? And what does "Krishna" mean?

Our Answer:

The chanting is a spiritual vibration that elevates our consciousness above the material plane. It requires practice. By constant practice we improve. We only fail if we give up. As much as the mind wanders off, we must bring it back; just as a mother must bring her child back from his mischief time after time. We must be very patient. Patience is a quality of goodness, which enhances meditation. Krishna means the all-attractive person.
