Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada and Srila Gurudev.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna has 64 qualities. One of the qualities is grateful. The Nectar of Devotion explains as follows:
"In the Mahābhārata, Krishna says, "When I was away from Draupadi, she cried the words, `He Govinda!' This call for Me has put Me in her debt, and that indebtedness is gradually increasing in My heart!" This statement by Krishna gives evidence of how one can please the Supreme Lord simply by addressing Him, "Hey Krishna! Hey Govinda!" The mahā-mantra.
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

It is also simply an address to the Lord and His energy. So to anyone who is constantly engaged in addressing the Lord and His energy, we can imagine how much the Supreme Lord is obliged. It is impossible for the Lord to ever forget such a devotee. Anyone who addresses the Lord immediately attracts the attention of the Lord, who always remains obliged to him.
When we see through the eyes of Srimad Bhagavatam the description of our Lord's creation, both material and spiritual worlds, we soon understand how insignificant we are. We can hardly imagine a minute portion of the Lord's greatness, yet we insignificant souls in this planet can get His attention just by uttering His name. All glories to Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who distributed the Mahā-mantra! By the mercy of Srila Prabhupada and our Gurudev, we will be able to chant the Lord's name with great affection."
Your humble servant,
Kaveri devi dasi
