Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
All glories to Swami Gaurangapada! All glories to Srilla Prabhupada!

In Advaita -prakasa (thank you Gurudeva for putted this wonderfull book in Nitaai Veda) , chapter four, we can read ecstatic pastimes how Lord Advaita, after He heard verse from Ananta-Samhita, chanted Gauranga! Gauranga! for at least three hours in exstasy!

"Then one day Advaita told Madhavendra Puri, “By the present influence of Kali, living entities are not accepting devotional service. Wherever one goes, he sees only unclean habits. One never even hears the name of Krishna. I don't find any means for the people's deliverance. Please suggest some means.?

Madhavendra Puri said, “Kamalaksha, You are an ocean of compassion. You are always thinking of the welfare of the living entities. This sort of consciousness is not manifest in ordinary people. Only one who is divinely empowered manifests such godly opulence. Unless the Supreme Personality of Godhead incarnates, there is no easy way to deliver the living entities. Therefore the original Supreme Lord will appear in order to establish religion in Kali-yuga. The primary evidence about His appearance is in the Ananta-samhita, and there is further reference in the Shrimad Bhagavatam.?

Advaita Prabhu said, “Where in the Ananta-samhita may this be found? I have a strong desire to see it.?

Hearing His request, Madhavendra Puri showed Him the reference in the Ananta-samhita. Advaita Prabhu was most delighted to read it and said, “The son of Nanda Maharaja, who is full in six opulences, will appear in Navadvipa as Lord Gauranga! He will deliver the entire world by giving people love of God through the chanting of the holy names. Thus He will fulfill the desire of this fallen soul.?

As Advaita said this, He was filled with ecstatic symptoms, and He chanted Gauranga's name for three hours:

gaura mora pranapati yanha tare pana
veda-dharma langhi mui taha cali yana

“Lord Gauranga is the Lord of My life. I will go wherever I find Him, even if I have to transgress the Vedic injunctions.?

Advaita sang this verse and danced as other devotees joined along. Gradually the waves of pure love swelled up like the Ganges in flood. They cried in ecstasy as they chanted the name of Gauranga. Exclaiming, “I've attained Gauranga!?the Lord rushed to and fro, sometimes losing consciousness and rolling on the ground. Later, after the Lord restrained His ecstatic symptoms, He had that reference in the Ananta-samhita copied down."

Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krsna
