Brhan-naradiya Purana, 

harinama para ye ca 
ghore kali-yuge narah 
te eva krtakrtyasca 
na kalir badhate hi tan 
hare kesava govinda 
vasudeva jaganmaya 
itirayanti ye nityam 
na hi tam badhate kalih  

“In this dark age of Kali-yuga, sincere devotees of the Supreme Lord should leave aside all other means for liberation and take full shelter of the holy name.  This is their real responsibility and duty.  There is unlimited bliss in chanting the different names of Krishna: Hari, Kesava, Govinda, Vasudeva and Jaganmaya.  For one who chants constantly with unflinching faith, he remains unaffected by the reverses of Kali-yuga, because his heart has become purified by chanting.” 

 Brhan-naradiya Purana

hari-nama-para ye ca 
hari-kirtana tat parah 
hari-puja-para ye ca 
te krtarthah kalau-yuge  

“Those who engage in chanting the holy name of Lord Hari (japa), are addicted to congregational chanting (kirtana), and engage in the worship of Lord Hari, have accomplished their desires in the age of Kali.d”  

Padma Purana, Uttara Khanda 42nd Chapter, 

dhyayan krte yajan yajnais 
tretayam dvapare ’rcayan 
yad apnoti tad apnoti 
kalau sankirtya kesavam  

“Whatever is achieved in Satya-yuga by meditation, in Treta by offering ritual sacrifices and in Dvapara by temple worship is achieved in Kali-yuga by chanting the names of Lord Kesava congregationally.”
