kalau nasty eva nasti eva nasti eva gatir anyatha”

A Sanskrit verse from Brhan-naradiya Purana which means

“In this age of Kali, there is no alternative, there is no alternative, there is no alternative for spiritual progress other than the chanting of the holy name, the chanting of the holy name, the chanting of the holy name of the Lord.”
