|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 25: How All the Residents of Vārāṇasī Became Vaiṣṇavas|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 25.4
'paramānanda kīrtanīyā' — śekharera sańgī
prabhure kīrtana śunāya, ati baḍa rańgī
paramānanda kīrtanīyā — Paramānanda Kīrtanīyā; śekharera sańgī — a friend of Candraśekhara's; prabhure — unto Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu; kīrtana śunāya — sings and chants; ati baḍa rańgī — very humorous.
For as long as Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu was in Vārāṇasī, Paramānanda Kīrtanīyā, who was a friend of Candraśekhara's, chanted the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra and other songs to Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu in a very humorous way.
