Namo mahā-vadānyāya kṛṣṇa-prema-pradāya te kṛṣṇāya kṛṣṇa-caitanya- nāmne gaura-tviṣe namaḥ (CC Madhya 19.53). Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, when he met Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu at Prayāg… There is a place, holy place in India, which is called Prayāga. So Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, after accepting His renounced order of sannyāsa, He went to Prayāga and other holy places. So Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, he was minister of the government, but he gave up everything, and joined this Hare Kṛṣṇa movement with Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. So when he first met, and he offered this verse, namo mahā-vadānyāya. Vadānyāya means "the most magnanimous." There are many incarnation of God, but Rūpa Gosvāmī said, "Now this incarnation of God, Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, is most magnanimous." Namo mahā-vadānyāya. Why magnanimous? Kṛṣṇa-prema-pradāya te: "You are delivering Kṛṣṇa immediately by Your this saṅkīrtana movement." To understand Kṛṣṇa is very difficult job. Kṛṣṇa has personally said in the Bhagavad-gītā, manuṣyāṇāṁ sahasreṣu kaścid yatati siddhaye (BG 7.3) "Out of many, many millions of persons," not only in this age, in the past also. Manuṣyāṇāṁ sahasreṣu, "Out of many millions of persons, "kaścid yatati siddhaye, "one is trying to become perfect." Generally, they have no knowledge what is perfection. Perfection they do not know. Perfection means to stop this process of birth, death, old age and disease. That is called perfection. Everyone is trying to be perfect, but they do not know what is perfection. Perfection means this: that when you are free from these four imperfections. What is that? Birth, death, old age and disease. Everyone. Nobody wants to die, but there is forcefully: you must die. That is imperfection. But these rascals, they do not know. They think that we must die. But no. Because you are eternal, you are not meant for death, but nature is forcing you, must die.
