Teachings of Lord Caitanya

Five hundred years ago, Caitanya (pronounced chai-tun-ya) Mahaprabhu gave the gift of love of God to everyone He met. Now is your chance to take the gift He came to give you.

Lord Caitanya spearheaded a spiritual renaissance in sixteenth-century India that had as its foundation the chanting of the Hare Krishna mantra. Five hundred years before Gandhi, this remarkable personality inaugurated a massive nonviolent civil-disobedience movement.

He introduced a revolutionary spiritual movement based on the world’s oldest and most comprehensive religious scriptures, the Vedas. This movement, He taught, would have universal appeal because it was based on the Absolute Truth, which transcends sectarian notions of race or creed.

Teachings of Lord Caitanya, which is a summary study of Sri Caitanya-charitamrita, documents Caitanya’s conversations with the great scholars, kings, saints and mystics of His day.
