garuda-purane

 

(1) kalina dahyamananam, paritranaya tanu-bhritam;

janma prathama-sandhyayam,  karishyami dvijatishu.

 

 In the Garuda Purana, the Supreme Lord Himself declares:

 

“For the upliftment of the conditioned souls burning in the sinful atmosphere of Kali-yuga, I will take birth among the brahmanas in the first sandhya  of that age.”

 

(2) aham purno bhavishyami, yuga-sandhau viseshatah;

mayapure navadvipe, bhavishyami saci-sutah.

 

“In My original spiritual form which is the source of all the incarnations, I will descend as the transcendental son of Shrimati Sacidevi in Navadvipa-Mayapura at the beginning of Kali-yuga.”

 

(3) kaleh prathama-sandhyayam, lakshmi-kanto bhavishyati;

daru-brahma-samipa-sthah, sannyasi gaura-vigrahah.

 

“In the first sandhya of Kali-yuga, the Supreme Personality of Godhead will descend first as the husband of the goddess of fortune, Shrimati Lakshmidevi, and then He will reside near Lord Jagannatha at Purushottama-kshetra (Nilacala) Puri, in the form of a golden sannyasi.”

 

(4) yad gopi-kuca-kumbha-sambhrama-bhararambhena samvardhitah

yad va gopa-kumara-sara-kalaya range subhandi-kritam

yad vrindavana-kanane pravilasac chridama-damadibhis

tat prema-prakatam cakara bhagavan chaitanya-rupah prabhuh

 

In the Garuda Purana it is said:

 

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Shri Krshna, whose eyes glanced at the gopis with increasing agitation due to pure love, who enjoyed most auspicious and glorious playful pastimes with Shridama, Dama and His other cowherd boyfriends in the divine Vrindavana forest,  will appear again to this world to reveal and freely distribute that same pure spiritual love. At that time His name will be Shri Chaitanya.”

 

(5) yo reme saha-ballavi ramayate vrindavane 'har-nisam

yah kamsam nijaghana kaurava-rane yah pandavanam sakha

so 'yam vainava-danda-mandita-bhujah sannyasa-veshah svayam

nihsandeham upagatah kshiti-tale chaitanya-rupah prabhuh

 

“There is absolutely no doubt that the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who enjoyed transcendental pastimes with the gopis, who filled the residents of Vrindavana with divine happiness day and night, who killed Kamsa, the enemy of His devotees and who in the war between the Kauravas and Pandavas, made friendship with His devotees, the Pandavas, will come again to this earth.  He will assume the form of a paramhamsa sannyasi with His arm decorated with a bamboo danda and His name will be Shri Chaitanya.”

 

(6) sadhavah kali-kale tu, tyaktvanya-tirtha-sevanam;

vrindaranye 'thava kshetre, nava-khande vasanti va.

 

“In the age of Kali the devotees will abandon the service of other holy places and live in either Navadvipa or Vrindavana.”
