isvarah paramah krsnah sach-chid-ananda-vigrahah
anadir adir govindah sarva-karana-karanam

The embodiment of spiritual energy, consciousness, and ecstasy, Sri Krsna, who is known as Govinda, is the Supreme Lord of all Lords. He has no origin, He is the origin of all, and He is the cause of all causes.

—Sri Brahma-samhita

 

sarvadbhuta-chamatkara-lila-kallola-varidhih
atulya-madhura-prema-mandita-priya-mandalah
tri-jagan-manasakarsi-murali-kala-kujitah
asamanordhva-rupa-sri-vismapita-characharah

[Krsna's four unique qualities:] (1) He is an ocean of waves of Pastimes that astound and amaze all beings. (2) He is surrounded by devotees who are adorned with incomparably sweet love. (3) The melodious coos from His flute attract the hearts of the three worlds. (4) All moving and inert beings are enchanted by the beauty of His unparallelled form.

—Srila Rupa Goswami Prabhu

 

krsna-lila-amrta-sara tara sata sata dhara
dasa-dike vahe yaha ha-ite
se chaitanya-lila haya sarovara aksaya
mano-hamsa charaha tahate

Krsna's Pastimes are the ultimate nectar. Sri Chaitanya's Pastimes are the inexhaustible reservoir from which hundreds of streams of that nectar flow in all directions. May the swan of your heart play there.

—Srila Krsnadas Kaviraj Goswami

 

krsna-bhakti-rasa-bhavita matih
kriyatam yadi kuto 'pi labhyate
tatra laulyam api mulyam ekalam
janma-koti-sukrtair na labhyate

Pure Krishna consciousness is not possible to attain even by living ten million pious lives, it can be purchased only by intense hankering. So if you see it available anywhere, get it at once.

—Srila Ramananda Ray

 

WALL


trnad api sunichena taror iva sahisnuna
amanina manadena kirtaniyah sada harih

One who thinks himself lower than the grass, who is more tolerant than a tree, and who does not expect personal honour while always gives all respect to others, is able to always chant the Holy Name.

(Bhagavan Sri Chaitanyadev)

 

nindantam pulakotkarena vikasan-nipa-prasuna-chchhavim
prordhvi-krtya-bhuja-dvayam hari harity uchchair vadantam muhuh
nrtyantam drutam asru-nirjhara-chayaih sinchantam urvi-talam
gayantam nija-parsadaih parivrtam sri-gaura-chandram numah

His bodily hair standing on end surpasses the beauty of blooming kadamba flowers. With arms upraised, He loudly calls, 'Hari! Hari!' again and again. Surrounded by His associates, He sings, dances nimbly and showers the surface of the earth with streams of tears. Thus we sing the glories of Sri Gaurachandra.

—Srila Prabodhanandapad

 

yugayitam nimesena chaksusa pravrsayitam
sunyayitam jagat sarvam govinda-virahena me

In separation from Govinda, a moment feels like like ages tears pour from my eyes, and the entire world feels empty.

—Bhagavan Sri Chaitanyadev

 

sri-srimad-bhagavat-padambuja-madhu-svadotsavaih sat-padair
niksipta madhu-bindavas cha parito bhrasta mukhad gunjitaih
yatnaih kinchid ihahrtam nija-para-sreyo 'rthina tan maya
bhuyo-bhuya ito rajamsi pada-samlagnani tesam bhaje

When bees have a festival and relish the nectar of the Supreme Lord's lotus feet, drops of this nectar scatter from their mouths as they, intoxicated, hum the glories of the Lord. I have carefully gathered some of those drops herein for my own supreme benefit, and in this way I again and again worship the dust of the feet of those great devotees.

—Srila Sridhar Dev-Goswami
