About the Book:
Throughout the ages, many avataras – divinely inspired teachers and incarnations of God, have appeared in the world, but none has ever distributed spiritual love as freely as the golden avatar, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu(‘Mahaprabhu’ means the great master). Lord Chaitanya is God (Krishna) Himself appearing in the role of His devotee to teach the common man devotional service. Chaitanya Mahaprabhu appeared in Bengal in 1486 and began a revolution in spiritual consciousness that has profoundly affected the lives of millions. Renowned as a great saint even in his youth, Lord Chaitanya left His family and friends at the age of twenty four to teach the forgotten essence of ancient Vedic wisdom throughout India. Although he himself was a fully renounced mystic, He taught how one can act in spiritual consciousness even with one’s home, occupation, and social affairs. This book narrates the extraordinary life of this great saint and explains the essence of His teachings.
