"Always chanting My glories, endeavoring with great determination, bowing down before Me, these great souls perpetually worship Me with devotion."
-Bhagavan sri Krsna, Bhagavad Gita 9.14
"Oh divine name! You destroy the entirety of the sufferings of Your surrendered devotees. You are eternally manifest in the transcendental form of intensified bliss. To the residents of Gokula, You are the source of an unending festival of joy and divine pleasure, and You are always saturated in Your magnificent glory and sweetness. I offer my repeated obeisances unto Your lotus feet."
-Rupa Goswami, sri krsna-namastaka
"Oh sri harinam, who is chanted by all sages! For the pleasure of the living entities, You have assumed the form of the supreme transcendental syllables. If a person chants Your name even once, and derisively, too, even then You completely destroy the monstrous mountain of his sinful reactions. Therefore, oh divine name, all glories unto You!"
-Sri Krishna-namastaka 2
"O best of Kings, if you want to achieve the highest knowledge by which you may attain the supreme abode, then perform Govinda kirtanam with firm faith."
"There may be discrepancies in pronouncing the mantras and observing the regulative principles, and, moreover, there may be discrepancies in regard to time, place, person and paraphernalia. But when Your Divine Name is chanted, everything becomes faultless."
-Srimad Bhagavatam 8.23.16
"Lord Brahma said: Listen carefully, for I shall give you a very confidential description of what will happen in kali-yuga. The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Govinda, the supreme enjoyer, whose form is transcendental, who is beyond the touch of the three modes of material nature, and who is the all-pervading Supersoul residing in the hearts of all living entities, will descend again in this age of Kali. Assuming a two-armed form of golden complexion, He will appear as a great devotee in His abode of Goloka Vrndavana, which will be manifested on the bank of the Ganga at Navadvipa. He will disseminate pure devotional service throughout the world."
-Sri Caitanya Upanisad 5
"This all-powerful Supreme Lord, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, will fill the entire universe with transcendental bliss by the chanting of His own holy names."
- Sri Caitanya Upanisad 9
"In the age of Kali, intelligent persons perform congregational chanting to worship the incarnation of Godhead who constantly sings the name of Krsna. Although His complexion is not blackish, He is Krsna Himself. He is accompanied by His associates, servants, weapons and confidential companions."
-Srimad Bhagavatam 11.5.32
"Those who seriously desire to make progress in spiritual life continually chant these sixteen splendid names of Krsna, and in this way they cross beyond the bondage of continued material existence. No other mantra can compare to it, and never will any mantra be able to bestow the same degree of confidential knowledge as is revealed by the Hare Krsna maha-mantra."
-Sri Caitanya Upanisad 14
