Srimad Bhagavatam (2:7:15):

 

आहेदम् आदिपुरुषाखिललोकनाथ

तीर्थश्रवः श्रवणमङ्गल-नामधेय

 

This shloka in Srimad Bhagavatham explains that one gets many auspicious benefits immediately even on hearing the Divine Names of the Lord.

 

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

If you are not able to perform Nama Sankirtan, at least listen to Nama Sankirtan. Hear the Nama regularly or go and sit in a place where Nama is being chanted.

 

To awaken us to the state of Truth, we need sounds which are above this worldly plane and are established in Reality.

 

Even if one is not able to Chant the Divine Name of Rama, one should hear others Chant of Divine Name Rama.

 

However, he concludes, 'only due to merits earned in crores of births does Bhagavan Nãma come on our tongue.'

 

Of all the various people who are physically challenged, I get extremely moved when I come across people who are deaf and dumb. This is because they cannot hear or utter the Divine Names.

 

 Those people who take pleasure in continuously hearing, chanting and remembering Your activities, certainly very soon will see Your lotus feet, who put the recurrence of rebirths to an end.

 

Saintly persons (sadhus) hear, sing, and recite a literature, of such a writing describes the glory of the names of God.

 

If you think of one God , sing and hear his glories only , mingle with HIS devotees and do service only to him, your mind would attain one-pointedness

 

Why did he say that one should dance about on the streets (singing the glory of the Lord)?

 

Immediately that dumb boy gained divine knowledge and started dancing, singing the Divine Names, `Rama' and `Krishna'

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
