Caitanya-caritamrta Compact

with HG Sutapa das

Lord-Caitanya-Dances-with-His-Followers

In 1965, when Srila Prabhupada suffered sea sickness and multiple heart attacks on his voyage to America, his reading of Caitanya-caritamrta brought him great solace. He said it was the “nectarine of life” and his “source of vitality.” Srila Prabhupada also recollects how Caitanya-caritamrta was his spiritual master’s favourite book. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakur had predicted that a time would come when people would learn the Bengali language simply to relish this classic composition of Krisnadasa Kaviraja Goswami. At present, however, Caitanya-caritamrta remains a relatively unexplored literature. Since the studies of Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam are vast in and of themselves, many neglect the opportunity to bathe in the delightful narrations of Sri Caitanya’s life.

In 5 weeks, we hope to:
– Present an easy-to-follow overview of Sri Caitanya’s life
– Provide a ‘road map’ and framework for anyone who desires to explore the Caitanya-caritamrta in greater detail

Please Note: A foundational understanding of Bhagavad-gita and Srimad Bhagavatam is recommended before undertaking this course. It is for more experienced devotees in Krishna consciousness.
