viratān kārayā-māsa shighram.” 43.

Meaning – Sri Krishna-Chaitanya Mahāprabhu is the giver of Prem. When he roars in Prem-intoxication, it is so forceful that it purges unrighteous thoughts from everyone’s minds, this includes the sinners, miserable, alcoholics, those who are averse to Sri Hari and Sri Guru – and addicts them to Sri Krishna. Such supremely magnanimous Gourachandra has come in this world, yet if any fool cannot grab this opportunity; it surely means that he will remain cheated forever. 43.

Instead, the devotees only feel pity for these suffering souls. 45.
