Glories of Performing Sankirtana

Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is the inaugurator of the sankirtana movement, anyone who performs sankirtana to please the Lord is very, very glorious. Such a person has perfect intelligence, whereas others are in the ignorance of material existence.
Purport on Srimad Bhagavatam 5.19.24

Maximum Display of Human Mercy

Spending fifty percent for the service of the Lord or for propagation of spiritual knowledge in society by way of the sankirtana-yajna is the maximum display of human mercy.
Purport on Srimad Bhagavatam 1.17.42

Yajna Recommended By Lord Chaitanya

Lord Chaitanya, however, has recommended only one yajna, or sacrifice, called the sankirtana-yajna, the chanting of Hare Krishna, in which everyone can take part. Thus both devotees and fruitive workers can derive equal benefit from the performances of sankirtana-yajna.
Purport on Srimad bhagavatam 1.16.20

Effects of Congregational Chanting

By performing congregational chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra, one can destroy the sinful condition of material existence, purify the unclean heart and awaken all varieties of devotional service.
Chaitanya Caritamrta on Antya Lila 20.13
