In 1974, in his forward to the Songs of the Vaisnava Acaryas produced by Acyutananda Svami, Srila Prabhupada writes the following;

I am greatly pleased to see this collection of songs composed by Thakura Bhaktivinoda, Narottama dasa, and other great acaryas of the Gaudiya Vaisnava community (sampradaya). Songs composed by the acaryas are not ordinary songs. When chanted by pure Vaisnavas who follow the rules and regulations of Vaisnava character, they are actually effective in awakening the Krsna consciousness dormant in every living entity. I have advised Sriman Acyutananda Svami to sing more songs of the Vaisnava padavali and record them in books so that my disciples and others in the Western countries may take advantage of this chanting and thus advance in Krsna consciousness more and more.

Srila Prabhupada delivers many spiritually potent insights as he explains the meanings of the great acaryas devotional songs. Please take the honor of translating the first of Srila Prabhupada's YouTube song purports in your own language.
