  1. Dark-complexioned Lord Krishna, whose form is eternal, blissful, and full of knowledge, formerly danced with the golden-complexioned gopis in the land of Vrindavana.

By intently embracing them He attained a golden complexion like theirs.

In this golden form He has now appeared in the town of Navadvipa[1].


  1. We offer respectful obeisances to Lord Advaita[2] and the other dear associates of the Lord, who are all full of compassion for the fallen souls.

We offer our respectful obeisances to Srila Svarupa Damodara Gosvami[3] and the other companions of the Lord.

As the Lord Himself is full of auspicious transcendental qualities, so are they. As the Lord Himself is full of mercy, so are they.

These great devotees are filled with the sweet nectar of Krishna Consciousness. These great devotees remove the grave sins of this material world.


  1. We offer our respectful obeisances to Srinatha Cakravarti, our spiritual master, who is very dear to the all-powerful Personality of Godhead[4].

Our spiritual master is like a jewel decorating the earth, or like a splendid moon shining in the brahminical community[5].

Some rare elevated souls in this world are able to understand and relish his nectarean description of Lord Krishna’s confidential pastimes in Vrindavana[6].

[1] Therefore Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Krishna Himself in the mood of the Gopis

[2] Advaita Acarya was the one who called the Lord to descend in this world

[3] One of His most intimate associate

[4] He is considered the fifteent branch of Sri Gadadhara Pandita tree. Srinatha Cakravarti wrote a commentary on the Srimad-Bhagavatam called Caitanya Mata-manjusa

[5] The analogy of the moon is often used to describe someone soothing. After the scorching heat of a summer day, at night the moon sends refreshing rays. At the same manner the pure devotee can give relief from the heat of materialistic life

[6] Radha Krishna’s confidential pastimes should not be discussed in the presence of conditioned souls
