Shri Chaitanya Shataka
madhura madhuram etad
kali-mala-krita-hinan dosha-buddhya na jagmuh
sakala nigama-saram nama-datum ca tatra
prabala karunaya shri-gauracandro 'vatirnah
madhura madhuram-the most sweet of all sweet things; etat-this; vaishnavanam-of the vaishnavas; caritram-character; kali-mala-the filth of the age of Kali; krita-made; hinan-destitute; dosha-fault; buddhya-by intelligent; na-not; jagmuh-influenced; sakala-all; nigama-Vedas; saram-essence; nama-datum-to give the name; ca-and; tatra-now; prabala-boundless; karunaya-by mercy; shri-gauracandrah-Shri Gaurachandra; avatirnah-descended.
The characteristics of the Vaishnavas, who are staunch devotees of Lord Gaurasundara, are very sweet. Those devotees are not offended by the faults of the low and contaminated living entities, who are smeared with the mud of sin. The reason is that Shri Gaurachandra, the ocean of mercy, appeared at Navadvipa to give the nectar of the holy names, the essence of the Vedas.
