CC Ādi 17.133


nagare nagare āji karimu kīrtana
sandhyā-kāle kara sabhe nagara-maṇḍana


nagare — from town; nagare — to town; āji — today; karimu — I shall perform; kīrtana — chanting of the Hare Kṛṣṇa mahā-mantra; sandhyā-kāle — in the evening; kara — do; sabhe — all; nagara — of the city; maṇḍana — decoration.


“In the evening I shall perform saṅkīrtana in each and every town. Therefore you should all decorate the city in the evening.


At that time, Navadvīpa was composed of nine small cities, so the words nagare nagare are significant. Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu wanted to perform kīrtana in each of these neighboring towns. He ordered the city decorated for the function.
