A Collection of Essays on Śrī Chaitanya

Steven J. Rosen’s latest work on Sri Chaitanya (1486–1534) follows in a line of publications that are dedicated to disseminating knowledge of the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition, commonly known in the West as the Hare Krishna movement. A collection of his own essays, written for scholar and practitioner alike, Chaitanyology allows entrance into an otherwise esoteric phenomenon, highlighting both its intellectual and mystical elements. In this volume, we find thoroughly researched accounts of Sri Chaitanya’s life narrative as well as articles on key subjects that show why his life has special meaning for practitioners today. “Steven J. Rosen’s latest contribution to the study of Chaitanya, follows in the wake of his lifelong and voluminous contribution to the field, appreciated by scholars and practitioners alike. Rosen, in his signature fashion, brings a scholarly voice to the life, philosophy and historical background of this consequential spiritual figure—a voice that contributes both to academic research in this field and to the intellectual fabric of practitioners’ understanding of their own canonical tradition. “Drawing on obscure texts, original research, and the research of numerous scholars, Rosen presents an eminently readable and well-researched volume of intriguing detail, documenting little-known facts and important observations that are sure to not only allow readers entrance into Chaitanya and his world but also help one in one’s own spiritual quest. Essential reading for both scholars of Indian religion and devotees of all persuasions.”— Edwin Bryant, Professor of Hindu Philosophy and Religion, Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey
