prasanna — joyful; ha-ila — became; saba — all; jagatera — of the whole world; mana — the mind; hari — the holy name of the Lord; bali’ — saying; hinduke — unto the Hindus; hāsya — laughing; karaye — do so; yavana — the Muslims.

Translation

The whole world was pleased. While the Hindus chanted the holy name of the Lord, the non-Hindus, especially the Muslims, jokingly imitated the words.

Purport

Although Muslims, or non-Hindus, have no interest in chanting the holy name of the Lord, the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra, the Muslims in Navadvīpa imitated the Hindus as they chanted during the lunar eclipse. Thus the Hindus and Muslims joined together in chanting the holy name of the Lord when Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu advented Himself.
