Verse 135: Shower of tears in Puri Dhama...

ashrunam kim api pravaha-nivahaih kshaunim purah pankilam-
kurvan pani-tale nidhaya vadara-pandum kapola-sthalim
ashcaryam lavanoda-rodhasi vasan shonam dadhano’mshukam
gauribhuya harih svayam vitanute radha-padabje ratim (135)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 135: "Residing in His Holy Abode of Shri Jagannatha Puri Dhaam by the shore of the salt-water ocean, the astonishing Supreme Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu muddies the ground in front of Him by the infinite streams of His pearl-like tears and places His soft cheeks which are as fair as vadaraa berries in His lotus bud-like hands. In this manner, Lord Hari Himself dresses in the divinely saffron garments of a golden sannyasi, accepts the Name of Lord Gauranga and manifests and distributes His own pure love and attachment to Shri Radha's lotus feet specifically through the chanting of the glories of His own Holy Names and Pastimes."
