The Narada-pancaratra also praises the Hare Krishna maha-mantra as follows:

 

“The essence of all Vedic knowledge-comprehending the three kinds of Vedic activity , the chandas, or Vedic hymns, and the processes for satisfying the demigods-is included in the eight syllables Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna. This is the reality of all Vedanta. The chanting of the holy name is the only means to cross the ocean of nescience.” (Translation by Shrila Prabhupada)
