Sri Chaitanya: His Life & Precepts


During the same years that Emerson and Thoreau were yearning for Vedic wisdom, Bhaktivinoda Thakur wrote this small book on the life and teachings of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu in english language and send it to the Royal Asiatic Socienty of London. They wrote the following words:

“This little volume will add to our knowledge of this remarkable reformer, and we express our thanks to Bhaktivinode for giving it to us in English, rather than in Bengali, in which language it must necessarily have remained a closed book to Europian students of the religious life of India.”

Combining devotion with scholarship, the author presents a charming introduction to the life of Sri Chaitanya and his teachings that formed India’s rich tradition of devotional yoga. Noted as the first English language book on Sri Chaitanya to ever reach the West, the text is as vibrant and enlightening today as it was over a century ago. Combining devotion with scholarship, Bhaktivinode Thakur introduces Chaitanya as the 16th century incarnation of divine love who brought about a renaissance in the Bhakti Yoga tradition.This reissue of an 1800’s classic biographical text, newly designed and beautifully illustrated, represents the first title in Mandala’s ongoing “Bhaktivinode Library Series”.
