Brihad Brahma Yamala
kalau purnanandas tri-bhuvana-jayi gaura-sutanur
navadvipe* jatah suradhuni-samipe naraharih
dadat papibhyah samstutam api harer nama sukritam
taritva papabdhim bhuvi vijayate shri-gauracandrabhidhah.
In ancient times, in the Brihad-brahma-yamala Tantra, it was said: “All glories to the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Shri Gaurachandra, who appears in Kali-yuga as the personification of complete bliss.† His beautiful form with golden complexion is glorified throughout the three worlds. He appeared in Shri Navadvipa,* which is on the banks of the Ganges. He delivered the most fallen people of the world from the ocean of sins by freely distributing to them the treasure of the most sacred and glorious names of Lord Hari.”
vande gauravataram kali-mala-mathanam shri-navadvipa-vasam*
kanthe malam dadhanam sruti-yuga-vilasat-svarna-samsakta-gandam
keyurangada-divya-ratna-ghatitam bahu-dvaye bibhratam
bhaktebhyo dadatam malapaharanam-namapi sarvam hareh.
“I offer my repeated obeisances to the Gaura-avatara, who destroys the unlimited impurities of Kali-yuga, who resides in Shri Navadvipa,* who wears an exquisite garland around His neck, whose cheeks are beautified by glistening golden earrings, whose arms are adorned with splendid jeweled keyura and angada armlets, and who awards His devotees the holy names of Lord Hari, which destroy all the impurities in their hearts.”
