Gauranga Nama and Lila Poetry is the only Mahakavya in Kali Yuga -- By Swami Gaurangapada
Shri Godruma - Candra - Bhajana - Upadesa
jada-kavya-raso na hi kavya-rasah kali-pavana-gaura-raso hi rasah alam anya-kathady anusilanaya bhaja godruma-kanana-kunja-vidhum
jada-kavya-worldly poetry; rasah-the taste; na-not; hi-certainly; kavya-rasah-the actual taste of poetry; kali-pavana-the savior of the age of Kali; gaura-Lord Gauranga; rasah-the taste; hi-certainly; rasah-is actual and only taste; alam-useless; anya-katha-other topics; adi-and so forth; anusilanaya-by the cultivation.
The taste of mundane poetry never provides the sweet taste of actual poetry. The sweet mellows of true poetry are verily found in Kali Yuga only in the Name and Descriptions of Lord Gauranga, the savior of all souls in the Kali-yuga. The diligent study of all other topics is useless! In this way just worship Lord Gauranga, the beautiful Moon of Godruma's forest bowers.
