kalau baleshvaro devah

     kalau vrindavanam vanam

 

     O goddess, please hear all of these thousand names. O beloved, when these thousand names of Lord Bala-Krishna are heard the sin of killing a brahmana, and all other sins as well, perish. In Kali-yuga Bala-Krishna is the Deity. In Kali-yuga Vrindavana is the forest.

kalau ganga mukti-datri

     kalau gita para gatih

nasti yajnadi karyani

     harer namaiva kevalam

kalau vimuktaye nrinam

     nasty eva gatir anyatha

 

     In Kali-yuga the Ganga is the giver of liberation. In Kali-yuga the Gita is the supreme song. The Vedic sacrifices are not to be performed. In Kali-yuga only the chanting of Lord Hari's holy name gives liberation. There is no other way.
