Caitanya-caritamrta Compact

with HG Sutapa das


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 preparation for Gaura Purnima 2015, we’ll immerse ourselves in Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s life and teachings, by studying this wonderful biography.

In 5 weeks, we hope to:
– To present an easy-to-follow overview of Sri Caitanya’s life
– To 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.
