Shrila Sacchidananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura:

 

Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya Chp 1:

 

kali jivera aparadha asankhya durvara;

gauranga-nama vina tara nahika uddhara.

 

"The offenses and sins of the living entities in Kali-yuga are unlimited and absolutely insurmountable. That is why the souls can never ever be delivered without the regular chanting the most merciful name of Gauranga."

 

Shrila Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami

 

chaitanya-nityanande nahi esaba vicara,

nama laite prema dena, vahe asrudhara

(Cc Adi 8.31)

 

"But if one chants, with only some slight faith, the two holy names of Lord Gauranga and Nityananda, very quickly he or she is quickly cleansed of all offenses. Since in the chanting of the names of Nityananda and Gauranga there is no consideration of offenses, one will very quickly come to the stage of love of God, simply by chanting Their names and tears of pure love for Krishna will flow from the eyes."

 

‘nityananda’ balite haya krishna-premodaya;

aulaya sakala anga,asru-ganga vaya.

(Chaitanya-charitamrita Adi-lila 8.23)

 

"Simply by chanting the name 'Nityananda' one awakens his love for Krishna. Thus all his bodily limbs are agitated by ecstasy of love of God, and tears flow from his eyes like the waters of the Ganges."

 

Shrila Narottama dasa Thakura:

 

grhe ba vanete thake, ‘ha gauranga’ bo'le dake,

narottama mage tara sanga.

 

"One may reside in the house or in the forest, but if he or she is constantly chanting the name of Gauranga, then I (Narottama Dasa Thakura) want his association and want to serve him."

 

Shrila Narada Muni:

 

gauranga-nama na laiya, yei krishna bhaje giya;

sei krishna bahu kale paya.

gauranga-nama laya jei, sadya krishna paya sei;

aparadha nahi rahe taya.

 

"If someone endeavours to worship Krishna without regularly chanting the name of Lord Gauranga, then he or she will achieve Krishna only after a very prolonged period of time. But if someone takes shelter of the Name of Lord Gauranga, he or she will achieve Krishna very soon because his or her offenses will immediately cease to exist." (real shelter of the names of Lord Nityananda and Lord Gauranga means to chant Them atleast one thousand times i.e. 10 rounds daily)
