Mundaka Upanishad


yada pasyah pasyate rukma-varnam

kartaram isam purusham brahma-yonim;

tada vidvan puny a-pape vidhuya

niranjanah paramam samyam upaiti.


In the Mundaka Upanishad (3.1.3) it is said: “One who is fortunate enough to see that actual object of our vision, the golden-colored Personality of Godhead, the Supreme Lord Gaura who is the ultimate doer, controller and enjoyer of everything and the source of the brahmajyoti (or one who has descended in a brahmana family), immediately becomes the most learned person, free from all material peity, sin, contamination and designations and effortlessly attains the supreme liberation of entering the abode of the Lord.”


hiranmaye pare kose, virajam brahma nishkalam;

tac chubhram jyotisham jyotis, tad yad atma-vido viduh.


“They who actually know the self, know that the supremely effulgent Personality of Godhead Lord Gauranga, the source of all other splendors, resides in a pure, splendid and transcendental realm (Navadvipa) which appears golden due to being illuminated by His own golden bodily complexion.”


sa evaitat paramam brahma-dhama

yatra visvam nihitam bhati subhram;

upasate purusham ye hy akamas

te sukram etad ativartanti dhirah.


“The sober persons who becoming free for all material desires, worship that golden Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who resides in His topmost effulgent spiritual abode (Navadvipa), easily cross over this material world of repeated birth and death.
