Shrila Prahlada states in the Naradiya Purana:
japato hari namani, sthane shata-gunadhikah;
atmanan ca punaty-uccair-japan shrotrin-punati ca.
"Compared to that person who is attached to chanting mentally or silently,, the person who performs loud chanting of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra is one hundred times better. This is because the person who chants mentally purifies only himself, whereas the person who chants the maha-mantra loudly purifies himself, all those who are with him, and everyone else who hear the holy vibration."
