While other forms of the Lord descended with various paraphernalia to deal with the demoniac and irreligious influences of the time, Lord Sri Caitanya was equipped with the most powerful weapon against irreligion, the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra.
Sri Chaitanya – Charitamrita, by Srila Krishnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami, is the principal work on the life and teachings of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the incarnation of Lord Krishna who appeared in India over five hundred years ago. The teachings propounded by Lord Chaitanya which transformed the face of India are presented by the author in a very easy language comprehendible for all its readers.
This English translation with commentary, by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, who falls under the disciplic succession in the Gaudiya line of spiritual masters, reveals his consummate Bengali and Sanskrit scholarship, his intimate familiarity with the precepts of Sri Chaitanya, and his pure devotion to God. Every page transcends the reader in to a world far beyond this material realm where every step is a dance, every word is a song, and every act is divine.
