Verse 116: False Pride has gone...
udgrihnanti samasta-shastram abhito durvara-garvayita
dhanyam-manya-dhiyash ca karma-tapasady-uccavaceshu sthitah
dvitrany eva japanti kecana harer namani vamashayah
purvam samprati gauracandra udite premapi sadharanah (116)
Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:
Verse 116: "Previously, the most erudite scholars had become unshakeably puffed-up by thinking themselves the omniscient masters of all the Vedic scriptures, and many others claimed themselves as glorious, successful and perfect by performing some austerities or fruitive work or by chanting some imaginary mantras. Also some others with a crooked and deceitful mentality thought themselves as great simply by mechanically uttering the Holy Names of Lord Hari twice or thrice. That was the past. But now that the golden moon of Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name has risen, even the most common people have become genuinely and effortlessly elevated to the topmost platform of pure love of God."
