Sri Sri Nitai-Gauracandra (From Bala Gopala’s Altar)




The shining full moon of Lord Caitanya was born from the milk ocean of Srimati Sacidevi’s womb; that moon is learned in the sixty-four astonishing transcendental arts, and it appears very splendid dressed in glorious saffron garments the color of the rising sun. That pure and beautiful moon is full of the nectar of pure love of God, and possesses the luster of the sattvika-bhava ecstatic symptoms. It appears like a great ocean of mercy. That moon is the combination of Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is the source of innumerable incarnations, and the supremely beautiful Srimati Radharani. May that moon of Lord Caitanya arise within the sky of your hearts.

– Sri Caitanya Candramrita 3.15 by Srila Prabhodananda Sarasvati
