Holy Name excels Pearlstone

Glories of Holy Name is much focussed and emphasized in Vedic Scriptures. Without chanting holy name of the lord no one can cross this vast ocean of materialism . This world which is full of sufferings can really be get rid of  after chanting the name of the lord.
It is said in Srimad Bhagavatam that holy name frees on from all the sins even if one chants the name of lord indirectly , jokingly , musically or in a hateful manner .
sāńketyaḿ pārihāsyaḿ vā
stobhaḿ helanam eva vā
aśeṣāgha-haraḿ viduḥ
(One who chants the holy name of the Lord is immediately freed from the reactions of unlimited sins, even if he chants indirectly [to indicate something else], jokingly, for musical entertainment, or even neglectfully. This is accepted by all the learned scholars of the scriptures.) SB.  6.2.14
Classical example of this type of chanting is Ajamil. He chanted the name of lord 'Narayan' to call his eldest son , at the time of death and he was saved by Vishnuduttas.
  Once there was a poor brahamana , who did great penance for the pleasure of Lord Shiva. So lord Shiva appeared before him and asked for benediction. Brahamana asked for most precious benediction in the entire world. Lord Shiva told that he had not got most precious thing in the world but that precious thing is with Sanatan Goswami in Vrindavan. So, Lord Shiva suggested that poor Brahamana to go to
Vrindavan and ask for most precious thing from Sanatan Goswami. Sanatan Goswami gave him touchstone (Gold manufacturing Device)
after searching the pile of dirts. Sanathan Goswami had thrown touchstone in dustbin . At first poor Brahamana became happy but while he was returning back  , he contemplated ' If touchstone was most precious thing in the world then why would Sanatan Goswami throw touchstone in the pile of dirts?' He concluded that Sanatan Goswami  had got another most precious thing in whose comparision touchstone is nothing. He returned to Sanatan Goswami's hermitage and asked for another real and most precious gift. Reading the mind of poor Brahamana , Sanatan Goswami told him to throw touchstone in water. Brahamana threw touchstone. Then Sanatan Goswami initiated him with Hare Krishna Mahamantra. He told that Hare Krishna Mahamantra is most precious benediction , in comparision of which pearlstone is nothing at all.
Thus one should seriously chant Hare Krishna Mahamantra.
