This blog post lists out verses from various Smritis that contain predictions of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. The following verse is said to be from the Devi Purana.


Prakashana-parayanah kvacit


Nama loke bhavishyati


"The Lord will again appear in this world. His name will be Sri Krishna Chaitanya and He will spread the chanting of the Lord's Holy Names.

Could anyone locate where in Devi Purana the above verse is found?

    This doesn't seem to be anywhere related to Devi Bhagavatam which I don't think talks about Namasankirtana. Do you have any additional information like the blog you saw this verse or anything? – Surya Oct 2 '17 at 15:36

    Devi Purana is different from Devi Bhagavatam. Maybe you can edit the question. – Surya Oct 3 '17 at 11:45

    @Surya Oh...sorry...I wasn't aware of that. I take back my words. – Surya Kanta Bose Chowdhury Oct 4 '17 at 13:37
