The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krishna, after displaying His pastimes as Lord Krishna, thought it wise to make His advent in the form of a devotee to explain personally the transcendental mellows of reciprocal service and love exchanged between Himself and His servants, friends, parents and fiancees. According to the Vedic literature, the foremost occupational duty for humanity in this Age of Kali is nama-sankirtana, or congregational chanting of the holy name of the Lord. The incarnation for this age especially preaches this process, but only Krishna Himself can explain the confidential loving service performed in the four principal varieties of loving affairs between the Supreme Lord and His devotees. Lord Krishna therefore personally appeared, with His plenary portions, as Lord Chaitanya. (Chaitanya-charitamrta, Adi-lila Chapter 3 introduction)

 

Sri Mayapur
By Isana Gaura Prabhu

In Mayapur Lord Gauranga's moon is rising, and from this land he gives the gift of
Krsna Prema. There is no mercy can compare to the mercy you'll find there.

All the holy-tirthas of Vndavana are in Mayapur. All the holy-rivers like Ganga flow here
forevermore. All glories to that place called Sri Mayapur.

In Mayapur Gauranga gives His causeless mercy. What to speak of Nityananda, who
brought the Holy Name. Pancatattva are always near, giving mercy to all that hear.

Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare - Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.

All glories to the residents of Sri Mayapur. All the denizens of heaven give you prayers
with folded hands. All glories to this most auspicious land.

In Mayapur the Lord's mood is separation, tasting the pure love that Sri Radha has for
Him. There is no love that can compare to the Love that He finds there.

With firm faith in the Holy Name, cast away your fears, seek refuge here and forever you
can stay. Take shelter in Gauranga's Holy Name.

Hare Krsna Hare Krsna Krsna Krsna Hare Hare - Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.

Kanai the lotus eyed, has come as Saci's son, and Balarama's took to sankirtan Krsna's
flute has become His drum. In Mayapur the Lord welcomes everyone.
Sri Mayapur the place where we belong.

In Mayapur the Lord's rasa-dance is at Srivas Thakur's home, where the treasure of the
world enjoys with only the chosen ones.
Sri Mayapur the place where we belong,
Sri Mayapur the place where we belong, Sri Mayapur the place where we belong.

Jiva jago, jiva jago Gauracandra bole.
Wake up sleeping souls, Lord Gauranga is calling You!
