The Power of the Name
Let us assume that a person named Gopal is walking on the street. You are in your house and call out 'Gopal' to summon your own brother named Gopal who lives with you. This Gopal (stranger on the road) responds to your call though he does not know you at all, does not care about you or is not expecting to be called by you at all. Such is the power of the 'Name'!
When this is the case, God knows us better than anyone else, cares about us more than we do ourselves and is waiting eagerly for us to call Him.
So if we throw our hands up in the air, call out His Divine Name with faith and surrender, will He not rush to us in a flash… So the easiest way to reach God is to call out His Divine Name – the Holy 'Hare Rama' Mahamantra.
