Lord Gauranga states in Shrila Jagadananda Pandita’s Prema-vivarta, Chp 21, Nama-mahima:
hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare;
hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare.
ei sloka name sarvadhika bajaya rahila he;
sarva-phala siddhi labha ei sola name haibe he.
“The chanting of the sixteen words of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra is the most superior kind of worship of the Lord. Through these 16 words, one will achieve all perfection and results.
tirtha-yatra parisrame kiba phala habe;
‘hare krishna’ nitya gane saba phala pabe.
“Why undertake so many inconveniences to visit pilgrimage places simply to gain some peity, when by constantly chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, wherever you are situated, you can accrue the results of all pious activities?
sarva-artha-pradata harinama mahamantra;
phukariya bale yata vedagama tantra.
“The Hare Krishna maha-mantra awards the chanter all kinds of
benedictions. This is repeatedly emphasized in the Vedas, Agamas and Tantras.”
