From the lotus mouth of His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Raksak Sridhar Dev-Goswami Maharaj:
  "Here in Koladwip, Nabadwip, we find a happy place where the Absolute is the most generous in His benevolence. When the Absolute is distributing Himself, He becomes Sri Chaitanyadev. And that Sri Chaitanyadev in the highest stage of His mercy is found here in Koladwip."
