In Shri Ananta-samhita, Part Two, Chapter Two entitled Shri Chaitanya-janma-khanda, Lord Siva describes to Parvati:

 

shri-mahadeva uvaca

 

gaurangam sac-cid-anandam, sarva-karana-karanam;

vaca gadgadayanantam, tushtava dharani-dharah

 

"Lord Anantadeva, the upholder of the whole universe then which a chocked voice full of ecstasy tried to satisfy the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu, the Supreme Cause of all Causes who possesses a transcendental eternal form of truth, knowldge and bliss."

 

krishnas chaitanya-gaurango, gauracandrah saci-sutah;

prabhur gauro gaura-harir, namani bhakti-dani me.

 

The Lord said:"When I will appear in Kali Yuga, My transcendental names will be: Gauranga, Krishna Chaitanya, Gaurachandra, Shachisuta, Mahaprabhu, Gaura, Gaurahari. etc. Chanting These supreme Names will bring devotion to Me."

 

vrindavane navadvipe, bheda-buddhis ca yo narah;

tam eva radhika-krishne, shri-gaurange paratmani.

 

mac-chala-pata-nirbhinna-dehah so 'pi naradhamah;

pacyate narake ghore, yavad ahuta-samplavam.

 

Lord Shiva said: "With my trident I will cut into pieces anyone who thinks that Vrindavana and Navadvipa are different, or that Radha-Krishna and Gauranga are different, or that Lord Gauranga is not the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Such a person is most degraded among human beings. He or she will burn in a terrible hell until the time when the universe is flooded with water."

 

ya eva bhagavan krishno, radhika-prana-vallabhah;

shrishtyadau sa jagannatho, gaura asin mahesvari.

 

"O Maheshwari Parvati, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Krishna who is most dear to His Supreme consort Shrimati Radharani and who is known as Lord Jagannatha from the beginning of creation has Himself fully and personally advented in this Kali Yuga as Lord Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu."

 

vistaran me nigaditah, sruto yah krishna isvarah;

visvadau gaura-kantitvat, gaurangam vaishnavah viduh.

 

"Please hear attentively, I will describe in detail this most confidential secret. The Supreme Ishvara or Controller Lord Krishna who is the origin of everything is known and worshiped by the learned Vaishnava devotees as Lord Gauranga, when He accepts the golden complexion of Shrimati Radhika."

 

paratmane namas tasmai, sarva-karana-hetave;

adi-devaya gauraya, sac-cid-ananda-rupine.

 

"I offer my prostrated obeisances to Adideva, the Supreme Lord Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu who is the ultimate and original cause of all causes, the Paratma or Supersoul of all living entities and who possesses a transcendental eternal form of truth, knowldge and bliss."

 

koti-kalpar jitaih punyair, vaishnavah syan maha-mate;

tatah syad radhika-krishna-lilasu rucir uttama.

 

"Those Vaishnava devotees who are Mahamati or very very advanced and who have accumulated spiritual piety for a minimum of 10 millions kalpas (1 kalpa = 8,640,000,000 years) will develop a superior taste for the transcendental pastimes of Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha Krishna."

 

syad yasya radhika-krishna-lilayam parama matih;

jivan-muktah sa vijneyah, pujyah syad daivatair api.

 

"In this way those exalted devotees who have developed unflinching attachment (parama matih) for the transcendental pastimes of Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha Krishna are worshipable even by the greatest demigods and are known as jivanamukta or fully liberated souls."

 

vina shri-gopika-sangam, kalpa-koti-satam param;

sravanat kirtanad vishnor, na radha-krishnam apnuyat.

 

Now the method to achieve Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha Krishna is described by Lord Shiva, "If someone does not serve and associate with the Gopies of Vrindavana, they will not achieve Radha-Krishna even if simply hear and chant about Lord Vishnu for a minimum of 1 billion kalpas (1 kalpa = 8,640,000,000 years)."

 

gopi-sangam na capnoti, shri-gaura-caranad rite;

tasmat tvam sarva-bhavena, shri-gauram bhaja sarvada.

 

"And to achieve the service and association of the Gopies of Vrindavana the only way is to worship the lotus of Lord Gauranga and chant His Name. Therefore Parvati, you should worship Lord Gauranga and chant His Name constantly and with sarva-bhava means by full surrender and giving everything to Him."

 

gauranga-caranambhoja-makaranda-madhuvratah;

sadhanena vina radham, krishnam prapsyanti niscitam.

 

"The person who is like a transcendental honeybee relishing the supreme ambrosial nectar (makaranda) emanating from the divine lotus feet of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu will most certainly without a doubt attain Their Lordships Shri Shri Radha Krishna even without performing any sadhana-bhakti practice of bhakti-yoga.

 

radhika-vallabhah krishno, bhaktanam priya-kamyaya;

shrimad-gauranga-rupena, navadvipe virajate.

 

"The Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Krishna who is most dear to His Supreme consort Shrimati Radharani is situated in Navadvipa in His transcendental combined form of Shrimad Gauranga to fulfil the innermost desires of His most intimate devotees."
