Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 7 - Chapter 1 - Verse 74


धर्मस्ते गृहमेधीयो वर्णित: पापनाशन: ।गृहस्थो येन पदवीमञ्जसा न्यासिनामियात् ॥ ७४ ॥


dharmas te gṛha-medhīyovarṇitaḥ pāpa-nāśanaḥgṛhastho yena padavīmañjasā nyāsinām iyāt


The process of chanting the holy name of the Lord is so powerful that by this chanting even householders [gṛhasthas] can very easily gain the ultimate result achieved by persons in the renounced order. Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira, I have now explained to you that process of religion.


This is a confirmation of the Kṛṣṇa consciousness movement. Anyone who takes part in this movement, regardless of what he is, can gain the topmost result achieved by a perfect sannyāsī, namely brahma-jñāna (spiritual knowledge). Even more important, he can advance in devotional service. Mahārāja Yudhiṣṭhira thought that because he was a gṛhastha there was no hope of his being liberated, and therefore he asked Nārada Muni how he could get out of material entanglement. But Nārada Muni, citing a practical example from his own life, established that by associating with devotees and chanting the Hare Kṛṣṇa mantra, any man in any condition of life can achieve the highest perfection without a doubt.
