TRANSLATION

Chanting the sweet holy names of the Lord, Lord Gauranga distributes the mellows of devotional service to the world. Due to ecstatic love, tears flow from His eyes in a hundred streams, His limbs shiver, and His body becomes wet with perspiration. He constantly teaches the living entities tormented by Kali, devotional service which follows in the mood of the gopis of Vraja.
