Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, an incarnation of Supreme Personality of Godhead Sri Krishna, appeared 500 years ago in Bengal. He taught the highest expression of love for God. Join this course to discover the life and teachings of Lord Chaitanya as recorded in the Chaitanya Caritamrta text, a greatly important scripture for Gaudiya Vaishnavas.

Chaitanya Caritamrta is considered the postgraduate study in spirituality. It reveals the mind of God – the inner life of Krishna, and the appreciation and attraction He feels when He is conquered by the love of His devotees.

The author of Chaitanya Caritamrta, Srila Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami, has written an anthology of pure devotion, lucidly describing the selfless disposition of great Vaishnavas. Chaitanya Charitamrita also reveals the deep compassion and munificence of God when He appears as Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. In our age of spiritual apathy and material allure, His propagation of nama sankirtan (chanting the names of God) offers living entities a lifeline to experience the profound happiness that comes from a relationship with God. Studying this most accurate, authentic, and philosophical biography of Lord Chaitanya will surely inspire one to take full advantage of this priceless gift.

Lord Chaitanya enacted His earthly pastimes for 48 years (1486-1534). His youth was dedicated to scholastic excellence, His middle age to mass preaching and His final years to deep communion with Krishna. It was a remarkable life.

Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami summarises the early pastimes of Lord Chaitanya in the Adi-Lila (first section) of Chaitanya Charitamrita. His focus, however, was to narrate the later pastimes of Lord Chaitanya, which form the entire Madhya-Lila (middle section) and Antya-Lila (final section) of his work. Chaitanya Charitamrita contains approximately 11,000 verses spread over 62 chapters.

Chaitanya Caritamrta Compact is a detailed study of the Chaitanya Caritamrta over eight weeks, looking at the key lessons and pastimes of Lord Chaitanya. This course will inspire devotees to learn to relish this scripture and unlock its nectar.
