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.
