As said by Śrī Vedā Vyās in Padmā Purān;

स नेतिहासो नहि यत्र रामः न तत् पुराणं नहि यत्र रामः॥

Lord Shri Ved Vyas says that Samhitā is not Samhitā, that Vedā is not Vedā, that Purān is not Purān, that Itīhāas is not Itīhāas where Śrī Rām and his name is not there. (Same shloka also available in Nārad Panchrātra)

Around same meaning Shlokā is also found in Brihād Kaūshal Khänd, Vëd Vyās uvāch,

तस्मादसंख्यगुणितं रामनाम्नापि संलभेत्॥

The merit obtained by chanting the name of Sri Rama once is innumerable times greater than the merit obtained by donating a golden man etc.

स्त्रीराजबालहा चैव यश्च विश्वासघातकः ।

सर्वापहारी पापिष्ठो मार्गघ्नो ग्रामदाहकः ।।

मातृगामी सुरापश्च भूतधुक् सर्वनिन्दकः ।

मातृहा पितृहा चैव भ्रूणहा गुरुतल्पगः॥

ते चान्ये चैव पापिष्ठा महापापयुताश्च ये ।

सर्वपापैः प्रमुच्यन्ते रामनाम्नस्तु कीर्त्तनात् ॥

Killer of woman, king and child, traitor, looter of everything, great sinner, robber of travelers, setting fire to village, kāami for mother, drunkard, traitor, slanderer of all, the murderer of mother, father and womb, the one who goes with the teacher's wife and others who are very sinful and great sinners, all of them are freed from all sins by chanting the name of Shri Rām.

हेमभारसहस्रैश्च कुरुक्षेत्रे रविग्रहे।

गजाश्वरथदानैश्च देवालय प्रतिष्ठया ।।

सेवनैः सर्वतीर्थानां तपोभिर्विविधैश्च किम् ।

श्रीरामनाम्नि सततं नित्यं यस्यास्ति निश्चयम्।।

What is the benefit of donating thousands of manas of gold, elephants, horses and chariots during the solar eclipse in Kurukshetra, building a temple and establishing the gods in it, consuming all the holy places and performing many kinds of austerities? One who has complete faith in Sri Rām Naam does not need to do any other karma.

घोरे कलियुगे प्राप्ते सर्वदोषैकभाजने।

रामनामरता जीवास्ते कृतार्थाः सुजीविनः।।

Those who are engaged in chanting the name of Lord Shriram even after the coming of this fierce Kaliyuga as this is only home of all defects. In fact, they are the only ones whose life is successful.

रामनामपरा ये च घोरे कलियुगे द्विजाः ।

त एव कृतकृत्याश्च न कलिर्बाधते हि तान्।।

O brahmins, those who are engaged in singing, remembering and chanting Shri Ram's name in this fierce Kaliyuga, they are the ones who are blessed, Kaliyuga does not hurt them.

समस्तजगदाधारं सर्वेश्वरमखण्डितम् ।

रामनाम कलौ नित्यं ये जपन्ति समादरात् ॥

ते धन्याः पूजनीयाश्च तेषां नास्ति भयं क्वचित्।

सत्यं वदामि विप्रेन्द्र ! नान्यथा वचनं मम ।।

The support of the whole world, the Sarveshwar and the Akhand Shri Ram Naam, those who recite with respect in this Kaliyug, they are blessed and worshipable, they have no fear of anyone anywhere.

  1. Mahasambhu Samhita (महाशम्भु संहिता)

Shiv ji's sentence;

यत्र कुत्राशुभे देशे भवेद्रामानुकीर्त्तनम् ।

सर्वं तीर्थादिकं विद्धि महाघौघं हरं हि तत्॥

Any unholy place where the name of Shri Ram is chanted, consider that place to be the best of all pilgrimages, that place is also the destroyer of great sins.

श्रीरामनामाखिल मन्त्रबीजं सञ्जीवनं चेत् हृदये प्रविष्टम्।

हालाहलं वा प्रलयानलं वा मृत्योर्मुखं वा विशतां कुतो भी॥

Sri Rama Naam is the seed of all mantras and is life-giving. Once this Rama Naam enters the heart by the grace of Sant Sadhguru. So there is no fear for that seeker of even entering the mouth of death halahal poison, doom.

Whereas Shri Janaki's sentence towards Shri Ram in same samhita,

प्रणवं केचिदाहुर्वै बीजं श्रेष्ठं तथा परे।

तत्तु ते नाम वर्णाभ्यां सिद्धिमाप्नोति मे मतम्।।

Some people call Om and some people call monosyllable seeds Gam, Ham etc. as the best, but both of them (Om Gam, Ham etc.) are proved by these two characters "R" and "M". This is my opinion.

रामेति नाममात्रस्य प्रभावमतिदुर्गमम्।

मृगयन्ति तु तद्वेदाः कुतो मन्त्रस्य ते प्रभो।।

O lord! The effect of the name of Shri Ram is very difficult to obtain, all the Vedas search for it but cannot cross it, then where is this power in any other? One who can cross it.

रामनाम प्रभावेण स्वयंभूः सृजते जगत्।

विभर्ति सकलं विष्णुः शिवः संहरते पुनः॥

With the influence of the name Shri Ram, swayambhu Brahma creates the world, Lord Vishnu maintains and Shankar destroys.

  1. Patanjali Samhita (पतञ्जलि संहिता)

पृथ्वीं शस्यसम्पूर्णां दत्त्वा यत्फलमश्नुते।

रामनाम सकृज्जप्त्वा ततोऽनन्तगुणं फलम्॥

The fruit that is obtained by donating the entire earth full of green grains, that same fruit is obtained by chanting the name of Shri Ram once.

रामेति नाम परमं मन्त्राणां बीजमव्ययम् ।

ये कीर्त्तयन्ति सततं तेषां किञ्चिन्न दुर्लभम् ॥

Nothing is rare for those who constantly chant the name of Shri Ram, the imperishable seed of all mantras.

रामनाम परब्रह्म त्यक्त्वा वात्सल्यसागरम्।

अन्यथा शरणं नास्ति सत्यं सत्यं वदाम्यहम् ॥

I say truly that there is no other protector except the name of the ocean of affection, the Supreme Brahman, Sri Ram.

नाम संकीर्त्तनादेव सम्पूर्णफलदायकम्।

अन्यत् फल्गु फलं सर्वं मोक्षावधिमसंशयम्॥

It is possible to get the full fruit only by chanting the name of Shri Ram, not by other means. Because all other means are going to give insignificant results, at the most they are going to give even salvation, that too is certainly small in comparison to the blissful juice.

कलौ युगे राघवनामतस्सदा परं पदं यात्यनायासतो ध्रुवम्।

सर्वैर्युगैः पूजितमुन्नतं युगं समस्तकल्याणनिकेतनं वरम्।।

Kaliyug is worshiped, advanced, the foundation of all welfare and the best age than all other ages, because in this Kaliyug, by always chanting, remembering and singing the name of Shri Ram, one definitely attains the supreme position without any effort.

माङ्गल्यं सर्वपापघ्नमायुष्यमखिलेष्टदम्।

भुक्ति मुक्तिप्रदं पुण्यं रामनाम्नस्तु कीर्त्तनम्॥

Sankirtan of Śrī Rām Naam is very auspicious, destroyer of all sins, bestower of longevity and complete desires, bestower of enjoyment and liberation and sankirtan of Śrī Rām Naam is meritorious.

येऽहर्निश जगद्धातू रामनाम्नस्तु कीर्त्तनम् ।

कुर्वन्ति तान् नरव्याघ्र न कलिर्बाधते क्वचित् ॥

Oh best of men! Those who chant the name of the Father of the universe Lord Shri Ram day and night, Kali does not hurt them anywhere.

Please Chant SitaRam SitaRam SitaRam

**न चत्वारोऽपि वै वेदाः समन्त्राः सप्तकोटयः । न यज्ञा अश्वमेधाद्यास्तीर्थानि चापि कोटयः।।

न मेरुतुल्यदानानि न योगाश्च तपांसि च। रामेति नाममात्रस्य तुलां यान्ति महामने।।**

Not even four Vedas, together with seven crore mahamantras, not even crores of sacrifices, such as Ashwamedha and holy places, neither gifts equal to mount Meru, nor yogas nor austerities, O great soul, they are not even equal to the mere name of Rama

(Aadi Ramayan 4.14.35 & 36)

सप्तकोटयः महामंत्र आश्रित विभ्रम कारकाः। एक एवं परो मंत्रः राम इत्यक्षरद्वयम् ।।

~ There are 7 crore mahamantras that can delude mind. There is only one mahamantra ie ram naam with 2 akshars that is supreme to all 7 crore mahamantras

Saraswat tantra

इत्यादयो महामंत्र वर्तन्ते सप्त कोटयः । आत्मा तेषां च सर्वेषां रामनाम्ना प्रकाशते।।

~ There are seven crores of great mantras. The soul of all of them shines in the name of Rama

(Maha Ramayana)

अहं च शंकरौ विष्णुस्तथा सर्वे दिवौकस।

राम नाम प्रभावेण संप्राप्ता सिद्धमुत्तमाम्।

Brahma, vishnu and shankar have always chanted shri ram naam by which we all got siddhis

Vishnu Puran

चतुर्युगेषु श्री राम नाम महात्म्यं उज्जवलं। सर्वोत्कृष्टं न संदेहो कलौ तत्रापि सर्वदा।।

Shri Ram is evident in all 4 yugas but in Kali yug, shri Ram naam is the only way to salvation

Sharda ramayan

जगत्प्रभु परमानंद कारणं सदसत्परम्। रामनाम पर ईशानं सर्वोपास्य परेश्वरम्।

Skand Puran nirvan khanda

Shiv says:- Shri ram naam is bhagwan of all universes, reason for ultimate joy, is beyond the greatest and smallest, should be worshipped and parameshwar

There are much more to show, but these shlokas will give best of idea.
