Lord Caitanya

18,00

Lord Chaitanya: Complete biography of Sri Chaitanya based on Chaitanya-charitamrita, Chaitanya-bhagavata and Other Authentic Works.

Sri Chaitanya is the brightest of the luminaries that appeared from time to time on the spiritual firmament of the world. The intensity of his spiritual fervour, and the power he wielded of imparting divine love to turn the hardest of sinners into saints and make the fiercest of animals, like lions and bears, dance with the deer and does in Sankirtan, are unparalleled in history.

No wonder, because Sri Chaitanya was not an ordinary saint, but Sri Krishna Himself, Who came down on earth as a devotee with the twofold purpose of Himself tasting the bliss of devotion and showing the path of devotion to the fallen souls for their deliverance by His precepts as well as example.
