Verse 139: Once in 8.6 billion years...

abhivyakto yatra druta-kanaka-gauro harir abhun
mahimna tasyaiva pranaya-rasa-magnam jagad abhut
abhud uccair uccais tumula-hari-sankirtana-vidhih
sa kalah kim bhuyo’py ahaha parivarteta madhurah (139)

Explanatory Translation by BRS Swami Gaurangapada:

Verse 139: "When the molten golden-complexioned Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Gauranga-Hari was present and manifest in this world, the whole universe was filled and plunged in the exalted glories of the mellows of pure love for the chanting of His Holy Names and Pastimes. Everywhere there was tumultous and loud congregational chanting and singing of His Holy Names and Glorious Pastimes. Alas! Oh! Will that supremely sweet time ever come again in this world? Yes it will, but only after 8,640,000,000 years since Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu personally descends in this universe only once in one full day (24 hours, one kalpa) of Lord Brahma."
