TEXT 104
suvarna-varno hemango
varangas candanangadi
sannyasa-krc chamah santo
suvarna-varnah—whose complexion is like gold; hema-angah—having a body like molten gold; vara-angah—whose body is very beautifully constructed; candana-angadi—smeared with the pulp of sandalwood; sannyasa-krt—accepting the renounced order of life; samah—self-controlled; santah—peaceful; nistha—firmly fixed; santi—bringing peace by propagating the Hare Krsna maha-mantra; parayanah—always in the ecstatic mood of devotional service.
" 'The Lord [in the incarnation of Gaurasundara] has a golden complexion. Indeed, His entire body, which is very nicely constituted, is like molten gold. Sandalwood pulp is smeared all over His body. He will take the fourth order of spiritual life [sannyasa] and will be very self-controlled. He will be distinguished from Mayavadi sannyasis in that He will be fixed in devotional service and will spread the sankirtana movement.' "
Gopinatha Acarya quoted this verse from the Mahabharata's Visnu-sahasra-nama-stotra.
