gaurangam gaura-diptangam, pathet stotram kritanjalih;
nanda-gopa-sutam caiva, namasyami gadagrajam.
In the Brahma-yamala it is also said:
"With great devotion and folded hands, one should recite the following prayer before Lord Gauranga, whose limbs are as effulgent as molten gold: 'I offer my respectful obeisances to Lord Gauranga-Krishna, the the son of the Nanda Maharaja and the elder brother of Gada.'"
kaleh prathama-sandhyayam, gaurango 'ham mahi-tale;
bhagirathi-tate bhumni, bhavishyami sanatanah.
In the Brahma Purana, the Supreme Lord Himself dnlares:
"In the first sandhya of Kali-yuga, I will appear as Gauranga on the earth in a beautiful place by the shore of the Ganges (*Navadvipa). I will descend in My original eternal form and My complexion will be golden."
