In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (2.1.11) states:
etan nirvidyamananam, icchatam akuto-bhayam;
yoginam nripa nirnitam, harer namanukirtanam.
“O King, constant chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra after the ways of the great authorities is the doubtless and fearless way of success for all, including those who are free from all material desires, those who are desirous of all material enjoyment, and also those who are self-satisfied by dint of transcendental knowledge.”
Shrimad-Bhagavatam (3.33.7) and (2.2.36) state:
aho bata sva-paco ’to gariyan
yaj-jihvagre vartate nama tubhyam
tepus tapas te juhuvuh sasnur arya
brahmanucur nama grinanti ye te
“O my Lord, a person who is chanting the Hare Krishna maha-mantra, although born of a low family like that of a candala , is situated on the highest platform of self-realization. Such a person must have performed all kinds of penances and sacrifices according to Vedic rituals and studied the Vedic literatures many, many times after taking his bath in all the holy places of pilgrimage. Such a person is considered to be the best of the Aryan family.”
tasmat sarvatmana rajan, harih sarvatra sarvada;
srotavyah kirtitavyas ca, smartavyo bhagavan nrinam.
“O King, it is therefore essential that every human being hear about, glorify and remember the names of the Supreme Lord, the Personality of Godhead Gauranga-Krishna, always and everywhere.”
