In the Navadvipa-bhava-taranga by Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, it is stated:
yatha deva-gana kore gaura-sankirtana;
kabhu dhama-vasi taha korena sravana. (56)
"Even the demigods continuously engage in Gauranga-nama-sankirtana (congregational chanting of the names of Lord Gauranga) in Navadvipa. Sometimes the residents of the dhama participate and hear the sankirtana."
keho va bolibe gaurahari bolo bhai;
gaura-vina radha-krishna-seva nahi pai. (57)
"Please chant the name of Gauranga because without Lord Gauranga's mercy one will never achieve service to Shri Shri Radha-Krishna."
