It is also said in the First Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam [1.5.28]:
“Thus during two seasons—the rainy season and autumn—I had the opportunity to hear these great-souled sages constantly chant the unadulterated glories of Lord Hari. As the flow of my (prema)-bhakti appeared, the coverings of the modes of passion and ignorance vanished.”
