Title: 013 Only Gauranga's name will sprout in the barren desert of my heart

In Shri Chaitanya-chandramrita Verse 53, Shrila Prabodhananda Sarasvati states the paramount importance of the name of Lord Gauranga:

 

ha hanta citta-bhuvi me paramosarayam,

sad-bhakti-kalpa-latikankurita katham syat;

hrdy ekam eva param asvasaniyam asti,

chaitanya-nama-kalayan na kadapi socyah.

 

"Alas! Alas! How will the desire creeper of pure unalloyed devotional service to Lord Krishna sprout in the supremely unfertile and barren desert of my heart? In my heart, there is only one supreme consolation and solace. That is chanting of the name of Lord Gauranga. This chanting will eternally put an end to all my lamentation and will work wonders in my heart softening and fertilizing it with love of God."
