Narada Pancharatra

Narada-pancharatra states:

trayo vedah shad-angani chandamsi vividhah surah
sarvam ashtaksharantah-stham yac canyad api van-mayam
sarva-vedanta-sararthah samsararnava-taranah

“The essence of all Vedic knowledge-comprehending the three kinds of Vedic activity [karma-kanda, jnana-kanda and upasana-kanda], 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 copyrights BBT International.)
