"Sri Krsna and Balarama, the Personalities of Godhead, who formerly appeared in Vrindavana and were millions of times more effulgent than the sun and moon, have arisen over the eastern horizon of Gaudadesa [West Bengal], being compassionate for the fallen state of the world.

"The appearance of Sri Krsna Caitanya and Prabhu Nityananda has surcharged the world with happiness.

"As the sun and moon drive away darkness by their appearance and reveal the nature of everything, these two brothers dissipate the darkness of the living beings' ignorance and enlighten them with knowledge of the Absolute Truth."

(Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 1.85-89)
