Supreme virtues of Lord Gauranga's devotees…

trinad api nicata sahaja-saumya-mugdhakritih
sudha-madhura-bhashita vishaya-gandha-thuthutkritih
hari-pranaya-vihvala kim api dhiranalambhita
bhavanti kila sad-guna jagati gaura-bhajam ami (24)

Verse 24: "Humbly thinking oneself more fallen than a blade of straw; natural, spontaneous, charming and gentle bodily features; sweet speech full of relishable nectar; repeatedly spitting at the insignificant desires for sense gratification; total disinterest and obliviousness to the temporary material affairs of this world; and supremely overwhelming love for Lord Gaurahari are the supreme transcendental virtues of the pure devotees of Lord Gauranga who constantly chant and relish His Holy Name."

Verse 113: All useless activities have ended…

stri-putradi-katham jahur vishayinah shastra-pravadam budha
yogindra vijahur marun-niyama-ja-klesham tapas tapasah
jnanabhyasa-vidhim jahush ca yatayash chaitanya-candre para
mavishkurvati bhakti-yoga-padavim naivanya asid rasah (113)

Verse 113: "Now that the divine moon of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name have splendidly manifested the supreme platform of pure devotional service, the gross materialistic sense-gratifiers have abandoned the discussion about their wives, children and material affairs, the scholars have given up debating the scriptures, the most advanced yogis have given up their efforts to control their breath and follow the yamas and niyamas, the greatest of renunciants have given up the misery of performing severe austerities, and the impersonalitic gyanis have given up their pursuits for speculative knowledge. Thus now there is nothing more sweet then the ambrosial nectar emanating from Lord Gauranga's Lotus Feet and His Holy Name."

Verse 120: Illiterate are eclipsing the scholars…

hasanty uccair uccair ahaha kula-vadhvo’pi parito
dravibhavam gacchanty api kuvishaya-grava-ghatitah
tiraskurvanty ajna api sakala-shastrajna-samitim
kshitau shri-caitanye’dbhuta-mahima-sare’vatarati (120)

Verse 120: "Since the supremely brilliant and glorious essence of all incarnations Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name have advented in this world, everywhere the saintly men and women are blissfully, repeatedly, and loudly laughing due to being intoxicated by pure love; the rock-like hearts of the materiastic people which were hardened by the wretched desires for the sense-pleasures of this world are melting by the touch of Lord Gauranga's Glories and Name; and even the illiterate and unlettered devotees are eclipsing and rejecting the community of a host of 'learned' atheistic scholars."

Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita kaivalyam narakayate tri-dasha-pur akasha-pushpayate
durdantendriya-kala-sarpa-patali protkhata-damshtrayate
vishvam purna-sukhayate vidhi-mahendradish ca kitayate
yat-karunya-kataksha-vaibhavavatam tam gauram eva stumah ( 5)

Verse 5: "For those most supremely fortunate souls who have even once attained the opulence of the most merciful and compassionate sidelong glance of Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name, impersonal liberation becomes as palatable as going to hell. The happiness of the heavenly planets of the demigods becomes as trivial and inconsequential as flowers imagined to be floating in the sky. The venomous and poisonous fangs of the untamable black snakes of the senses become extracted and uprooted, the whole world which is full of misery and suffering becomes full of supreme joy and the greatly exalted positions of Brahma, Indra and all the demigods become as insignificant as those of tiny insects. Let us therefore certainly and constantly glorify that most merciful Lord Shri Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Supreme Holy Name."

kashi-vasan api na ganaye kim gayam margayamo
muktih shuktibhavati yadi me kah parartha-prasangah
trasabhasah sphurati na maha-raurave’pi kva bhitih
stri-putradau yadi kripayate deva-devah sa gaurah

Verse 99: "If the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name are causelessly merciful unto me then why should I consider the impersonalists of Varanasi to be very important and why should I go on a pilgrimage to Gaya to offer oblations to my ancestors? If Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are merciful to me then my personal liberation does not hold as much weight as even a fraction of an ounce to me what to speak of the petty worldly achievements of religiosity, economic development and sense gratification, the three other secondary goals of life. If Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are merciful upon me, I will not feel a glimpse of distress even if I have to go to the most horrible Maharaurava hell. If Lord Gauranga and His Holy Name are merciful unto me then I will have absolutely no fear and anxiety about the well-being of my wife, children, friends and relatives."
