সে মহিমা বলে হেন কে আছে প্রচণ্ড যে প্রভু ভাঙ্গিলা গৌরসুন্দরের দণ্ড ॥ ১৩৩ ॥

से महिमा बले हेन के आछे प्रचण्ड ये प्रभु भाङ्गिला गौरसुन्दरेर दण्ड ॥ १३३ ॥

se mahimā bale hena ke āche pracaṇḍa ye prabhu bhāṅgilā gaurasundarera daṇḍa || 133 ||

se mahima bale hena ke ache pracanda ye prabhu bhangila gaurasundarera danda (133)

English translation:

(133) Who can describe the glories of that Lord who broke the sannyāsa- daṇḍa of Gaurasundara?

Commentary: Gauḍīya-bhāṣya by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura:

He is directly Lord Baladeva, therefore the power of His glories cannot be compared with any other object. How can anyone’s power be compared with the power of He who transgressed His exhibition of subordination to Gaurasundara by breaking His sannyāsa daṇḍa accepted out of formality. Everyone is forced to follow the rules and regulations enjoined by Gaurasundara. When the Lord of the fourteen worlds was personally following the rules and regulations to set example for people in general, Nityānanda Prabhu, being intolerant, altered the Lord’s exemplary pastimes of following the rules and regulations. See Antya-khaṇḍa, Chapter Two.
