shrimad-bhagavata-mahapurane

 

(1) krishna-varnam tvishakrishnam, sangopangastra-parshadam;

yajnaih sankirtana-prayair, yajanti hi su-medhasah.

 

In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (11.5.32) Karabhajana Muni speaks to Videharaja Nimi:

 

“In the age of Kali, intelligent persons perform congregational chanting to worship the incarnation of Godhead (Lord Shri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu), who constantly sings the name of Krishna. Although His complexion is not blackish (but is like molten gold), He is Krishna Himself. He is accompanied by His associates, servants, weapons, and confidential companions.”

 

(2) dhyeyam sada paribhava-ghnam abhishta-doham

tirthaspadam siva-virinci-nutam saranyam

bhrityarti-ham pranata-pala-bhavabdhi-potam

vande maha-purusha te caranaravindam

 

In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (11.5.33) it is said:

 

“We offer our respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of Him, the Lord, upon whom one should always meditate. He destroys insults to His devotees. He removes the distresses of His devotees and satisfies their desires. He, the abode of all holy places and the shelter of all sages, is worshipable by Lord Siva and Lord Brahma. He is the boat of the demigods for crossing the ocean of birth and death.”*

 

(4)tyaktva sudustyaja-surepsita-rajya-lakshmim

dharmishtha arya-vacasa yad agad aranyam

maya-mrigam dayitayepsitam anvadhavad

vande maha-purusha te caranaravindam

 

In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (11.5.34) it is said:

 

“We offer our respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of the Lord, upon whom one should always meditate. He left His householder life (apparently due to the curse of a brahmana), leaving aside His eternal consort (Shrimati Vishnupriya Devi), whom even the denizens of heaven adore. He went into the forest to deliver the fallen souls, who are put into illusion by material energy.”*

 

(5) ittham nri-tiryag-rishi-deva jhashavatarair

lokan vibhavayasi hamsi jagat-pratipan

dharmam maha-purusha pasi yuganuvrittam

channah kalau yad abhavas tri-yugo ’tha sa tvam

 

In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (7.9.38) Shri Prahlada Maharaja states:

 

“My Lord, You kill all the enemies of the world in Your multifarious incarnations in the families of men, animals, demigods, rishis, aquatics and so on. Thus You illuminate the worlds with transcendental knowledge. In the Age of Kali, O Mahapurusha, You sometimes appear in a covered incarnation. Therefore You are known as Tri-yuga .”*

 

(6) daksha uvaca

suddham sva-dhamny uparatakhila-buddhy-avastham

cin-matram ekam abhayam pratishidhya mayam

tishthams tayaiva purushatvam upetya tasyam

aste bhavan aparisuddha ivatma-tantrah

 

In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (4.7.26) Daksha prays to the Lord as follows:

 

“O supremely independent Lord! You manifest your pure, transcendental and fearless form in Your own abode known as Shri Mayapura.”

 

(7) asan varnas trayo hy asya, grihnato ’nuyugam tanuh;

suklo raktas tatha pita, idanim krishnatam gatah.

 

In Shrimad-Bhagavatam (10.8.13) Shri Gargamuni tells Nanada Maharaja:

 

“Your son Krishna appears as an incarnation in every millennium. In the past, He assumed three different colors-white, red and yellow-and now He has appeared in a blackish color.”
