Chaitanya: The Golden Avatar

The Teachings of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
The Golden Avatar

Śrī Kṛṣṇa, God, the supreme and absolute Person, is the Lord in His primordial and original form. This same Śrī Kṛṣṇa, original Lord, appeared in Navadvīpa (India) as Śrī Caitanya.

The Lord Kṛṣṇa (Krishna), source of all avatārs, appeared in person in the form of Śri Chaitanya Mahāprabhu. Thus, Śri Chaitanya (or Sri Caitanya) is the Supreme and Absolute Truth.

Śrī Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is God, the Supreme Person. He is indeed Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Lord.

The wise call it: Shri / Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabu, Sri Krishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Krishna Caitanya.

The Name Caitanya means: Active Force.

Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhou, who was in fact Krishna Himself, came to Earth 500 years ago as a great Bhakta, a Pure Soul, a Great Devotee of God, to teach human beings the way of Spiritual fulfillment in the era we live in, namely the sankirtane, or the song of the holy names of God.

In the age following the Kali-youga or the age of Kali (the Iron Age) - the one in which we now live - the Lord incarnates to teach the song of the Holy Name of Krishna. Putting on a yellow flesh, He personally shows people how to love God through the song of the Name of Krishna and show Himself the love for God through song and dance, surrounded by the thousands of people who follow Him. The advent of this avatar of the Supreme Lord is specifically predicted in the pages of Shrimad-Bhagavatam (pure spiritual science or science of God) (11.5.32), where one can read that in this age of Kali, Lord Incarnates like a devotee who sings incessantly

Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare / Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared to spread the song of the holy name, to spread the love of God and to bring down fallen souls to him.

Krishna had said: “I will appear in the holy land of Navadvīpa as the son of Śacīdevī.” (Krsna-yamala)

“When in the age of Kali, the present age, comes the moment to begin the movement of saṅkīrtana, I appear like the son of Śacīdevī.” (Vāyu Purāṇa)
