Matsya Purana


mundo gaurah su-dirghangas, tri-srotas-tira-sambhavah*;

dayaluh kirtana-grahi, bhavishyami kalau yuge.


In the Matsya Purana, the Supreme Lord declares: “In the Kali-yuga I will appear in a place (*Navadvipa) where the three (Ganga, Yamuna, and Sarasvati) rivers meet. I will be fair, with a shaven head, and will have five large bodily parts (nose, arms, chin, eyes, and knees). I will be very merciful and enchanted by the chanting of My own holy names-Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.”
