Shri Chaitanya Shataka
To deliver the people who are contrary to the bona fide sampradayas Shri Krishna Chaitanya appeared in Nadia in this age of Kali.
I have heard from the mouths of the pure devotees that the Lord in other incarnations delivers His own devotees. But Shri Gauranga, appearing in Nadia, by bestowing the nectar of the holy names, delivered everyone, both devotees and nondevotees without discrimination.
The bestower of love, Shri Krishna Chaitanya, being maddened by ecstatic love, shouts loudly. He destroys the misconceptions of the people and thereby attracts their minds to Krishna. Those fools bereft of receiving the mercy of such a compassionate Lord are the sinful, the dunkards, those suffering material miseries and those who are averse to the Lord and His representative. In this way they are cheated in all respects.
After the appearance in Navadvipa of Shri Gauranga, who is the most beautiful in the three worlds, all the people of this world including the fallen, the lowest of men, the yavanas and the fools, all became happy and maddened by the performance of sankirtana.
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.
Shri Gaurachandra, by His own sweet will delivered the living entities tormented by Kali and drowning in the ocean of the material world, which is filled with formidable waves. Lord Gauranga gave those living entities the nectar of the holy names and He clearly explained the glories of the name and the Vaishnavas.
According to the order of Shri Krishna Chaitanya His followers are delivering the living entities tormented by Kali by distributing the nectar of the holy names to each and every house of every town and village.
Shri Gauranga is the friend and master of the universe. He inaugurated the sankirtana-yajna and service of the Lord throughout the land of Bharata.
Ever since Shri Gauranga, the personification of love, began distributing krishna-prema, all the ungratful, the drunkards, the sinful, and the suffering, they all gave up their desire for sense gratification and sinful activities as poison and drown themselves in the ocean of happiness of the loud congregational chanting of the holy names.
Those most sinful persons who had no alternative for deliverence in other yugas, are now absorbed in the ocean of happiness by the mercy of the holy names which were introduced by Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
All the most sinful persons are being delivered by the mercy of the holy name of the Lord, which has come from the mouth of Shri Gaurasundara. Lord Gaurasundara is Himself the Lord of all, the controller of the universe, and the instructor of all.
Shri Gaurasundara is the friend of the universe. He is most compassionate-the giver of the holy name. His bright attractive golden form is filled with supreme sweetness. His smile is enchanting and the glance of His lotus eyes is very cooling. The words from His mouth are full of love and like nectar. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
The characteristics of Shri Gaurasundara are most sweet. He simply teaches the holy names. Within the three worlds it is well known that He is the only giver of love. His transcendental body is filled with shivering and He attracts the minds of all. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
Shri Gaurasundara is the essence of all the Vedic literature. He is complete in Himself and He is the source of all other incarnations. He has destroyed the sins of the living entities tormented by Kali by giving them prema-bhakti. He is always engaged in pastimes along with His eternal associates in various ways. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
Within the three worlds Shri Gaurasundara is incomparable and without a second. He is the knower of transcendental rasa. Everyone is bewildered seeing His sweet effulgent form. He is famous, the abode of all transcendental qualities, and His nature is of the deepest uncontaminated goodness. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
Tears of love constantly flow from Shri Gaurachandra's eyes which reach to His ears. His bodily limbs are filled with perspiration and shivering in ecsatic love. The extraordinary beauty of His form agitates the minds of hundreds of Cupids. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
Shri Gaurachandra is bestowing without discrimination the nectar of the holy name of Krishna. That nectar destroys the enemies of the living entities tormented by Kali. Therefore Shri Gaurachandra is known as Patita-pavana, the protector of the poor and fallen, and the ultimate limit of mercy. His beautiful form reminds the seer of the mystery of Vrindavana and thus the seer feels happiness due to love of God. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
Shri Gaurachandra is the jeweled ornament on the head of all knowers of transcendental mellows and He is the essence of all rasa. He is always maddened by the name of Krishna. His unlimited qualities are like a deep ocean and He is very sober and grave. He is most eager to deliver the fallen souls. There is no comparison to His beautiful form. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
The moonlike words of Shri Gaurachandra are soothing like the lotus. His lips resemble the ripened bimba fruit. His beautiful nose resembles the sesame flower, His throat resembles the conch shell, His long arms are strong and His navel is deep. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
The color of Shri Gaurachandra's body is like molten gold. His limbs are the essence of all loviness. He is the destroyer of the contamination of Kali-yuga-this is His supreme glory. He gives love of God without discrimination to the people of the world. May that Lord Gaurachandra, who is the best amongst the dancers, please manifest in my heart.
