Skanda Purana, 

mahabhagavata nityam 
kalau smakirtaya kesavam  

“The hallmark of a mahabhagavata the most elevated devotee in Kali-yuga is that he chants the holy name of the Lord constantly.”  

Linga Purana

varjams-tisthan svapannasnan 
svasan vakya-prapurane 
nama-samkirtanam visnor- 
helaya kali-vardhanam 
krtva svarupatam yati 
bhakti-yuktam param vrajet  

“In our normal activities of eating, sleeping, sitting, dreaming, etc.  to chant Krishna’s names, while nullify the ill effects of Kali-yuga, is the perfection of speech.  Even it a person chants Krishna’s names indifferently; he will surely achieve his svarupa, or original spiritual self and attain that state beyond all material fear and lamentation.  He will reach Vaikuntha, the supreme goal.” 

 Kali Santarana Upanisad

hare Krishna hare Krishna 
Krishna Krishna hare hare 
hare rama hare rama 
rama rama hare hare 
iti sodasakam namnam 
natah parataropayah 
sarva-vedesu drsyate  

“After searching through all the Vedic literature one cannot find a method of religion more sublime for this age than the chanting of Hare Krishna” 

Finally, Madhva himself, quoting Narayana Samhita, in his Mundakopanisad Bhasya says, 

dvapariyair janair visnuh 
pancaratrais tu kevalam 
kalau tu nama-matrena 
pujyate bhagavan harih  

“In the Dvapara-yuga people should worship Lord Visnu only by the regulative principles of the pancaratra and other such authorized books.  In the Age of Kali, however, people should only chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.”
