drown yourselves in the ocean of happiness


dances in great love and shouts loudly

Lord Gauracandra, who is the Supreme Personality of Godhead raises His long arms and mercifully requests everyone, ‘O devotees of the Lord! Just chant the name of Hari!’ Speaking these words, He dances in great love and shouts loudly, exclaiming, ‘Ha! Ha!’. He then sometimes faints and rolls on the ground, striking His chest with His hands

It is most wonderful that when the son of Śacī, Lord Gaurasundara appeared at Navadvīpa, all people—young to old, man and woman, and even the foolish—they all became attached to the holy name of the Lord

As soon as Lord Gaurāṅga began the auspicious congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord, at that time the living entities, who were tormented by Kali became stunned hearing the wonderful qualities of the Lord and they rushed to the site of the saṅkīrtana-yajña. All the pure and sinful persons on hearing that congregational chanting became maddened and danced

Ever since Śrī Gaurāṅga, the personification of love, began distributing kṛṣṇa-prema, all the ungratful, the drunkards, the sinful, and the suffering, they all gave up their desire for sense gratification and sinful activities as poison and drown themselves in the ocean of happiness of the loud congregational chanting of the holy names

Seeing the morose, frightened living entities, tormented by Kali and contaminated by sin, Śacīnandana Gaurahari, has given them the holy name of Śrī Hari. He has given His devotees the practice of chanting the holy names while dancing and playing musical instruments
