kaleh prathama-sandhyayam, gaurango 'sau mahi-tale;
bhagirathi-tate ramye, bhavishyati sanatanah.
In the Yoga-vasishtha it is said:
"In the first sandhya of Kali-yuga, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Gauranga will appear on this earth on the beautiful banks of the Ganges (Navadvipa), in His eternal golden form."
In the Irdhvamnaya-tantra, Lord Siva declares to Parvati:
navadvipa-samam sthanam, shri-gauranga-samah prabhuh;
krishna-prema-sama praptir, nasti durge kadacana.
"O Durga, no place in the creation is equal to Navadvipa, no master is as merciful as Lord Shri Gauranga, and no attainment in the whole world is equal to pure love for Krishna."
