Srimad Bhagavatam 6:2:12
नैकान्तिकं तद् धि कृते‘पि निष्कृते मनः पुनर् धावति चेद् असत्-पथे
तत् कर्म-निर्हारम् अभीप्सतां हरेर् गुणानुवादः खलु सत्त्व-भावनः
The practice of other forms of atonement cannot bring total purification. This is shown by the fact that through their observances the mind is not cured of its addiction to evil and is again drawn towards the path of evil. Therefore, those who seek total liberation from the influence of sin should adopt Chanting the divine names of Lord. The heart of the person will be totally purified through the kirtana of the Divine Name.
