TRANSLATION

Seeing the living entities fallen in Kali's ocean of filth, bewildered by lamentation and illusion, and always absorbed in serving their families, the most merciful Lord Gauranga, thinking of a means for their deliverence, gives them the holy name. He appeared in Navadvipa as the son of Shaci in the form of a mendicant who was renowned and had a most sweetly beautiful body.
