In the Tantras it is said

“In the sandhya at the end of Dvapara-yuga, I appeared as the dark all-powerful Lord Krisna, the son of Vasudeva and Devaki. In Kali-yuga, however, I will appear as the golden all-powerful Lord Gaura, the transcendental son of Jagannatha Misra and.”

In the Irdhvamnaya-tantra, Shrila Vyasadeva describes the six-syllable gaura-mantra to Shrila Narada:

 

“This gaura-mantra (gauraya namah) is worshipped by all the people in the world by using the bija-mantras of Maya, Rama, Ananga and Sarasvati. I have chanted to you this the six-syllable gaura-mantra (klim gauraya namah), which is like a desire tree because it fulfills all our desires and grants us pure love for Krishna.”
