“By His causeless mercy the full moon Gaurahari arose in the district of Nadia, which is compared to Udayagiri, where the sun first becomes visible—His rising in the sky destroyed the darkness of sin; all three worlds became joyful and chanted the Holy Name of the Lord.”
Sri Navadvipa-dhama-mahatmya and Sri Nabadwip-bhava-taranga. Two books of Srila Bhakti Vinod Thakur including verse by verse translations: free pdf download. Very helpful for following the Sri Nabadwip Dham Parikramas taking place now in Nabadwip.
