Original Sri Caitanya-caritamrta PDF Downloads

This entry is part 3 of 32 in the series PDF Downloads of Srila Prabhupada’s Original Books

Please find the links below to all 17 Volumes of Srila Prabhupada’s original Sri Caitanya-caritamrta EXACTLY as it was published by Srila Prabhupada in 1974.

Srila Prabhupada stressed so much to Radhavallabha Prabhu, the production manager at the BBT when Sri Caitanya-caritamrta was first printed, that once this book was printed they could not change anything. Of course Prabhupada did not want changes made to any of his books but he very strongly forbade the BBT from making any changes at all to his Caitanya-caritamrta once it was printed. Prabhupada forced them to print it very quickly and they wanted to add new paintings and ‘finish’ paintings that were already in the book after it was printed… Mithiladhisa Prabhu, a friend of Radhaballabha, relates the situation as follows:

“Soon after the intense marathon for completing the publication of Caitanya Caritamrita, Radhaballabha Prabhu approached Srila Prabhupada and mentioned that the artists are now completing the paintings in preparation for the second printing. To this, Srila Prabhupada replied “No changes”.  A further attempt was made to explain, stating that there were to be no actual changes, but that the same painting would simply be completed because there was insufficient time during the marathon, and that the paintings were actually published in an unfinished state. Srila Prabhupada replied to him again, “NO changes”.

“Confused by Srila Prabhupada’s previous responses, Radhaballabha again tried to explain the situation. The short time frame of the publication marathon had prevented the paintings from being completed. They were now to be finished by the artists, re-photographed and in the next printing, the same picture, same size, everything the same except for the finishing touches, would be placed in the exact same spot in the book. Srila Prabhupada now appeared angered and replied again, but this time more forcefully, “NO CHANGES!!!”.

But in spite of Srila Prabhupada’s very forceful demand that the BBT make no changes to his Sri Caitanya-caritamrta the BBT decided to make extensive changes to the book anyhow, in direct defiance of Srila Prabhupada’s order. Dravida (Jayadviata’s partner in changing Prabhupada’s books) went to Australia and stayed at the New Govardhana farm in the 1990′s and sat down and changed “whatever he thought was worth changing” in Prabhupada’s Sri Caitanya-caritamrta. There were no guidelines for what he was to change, he did not keep any records of what he changed or even tell anyone else in the BBT what he changed. He had the authority to change anything at all that he wanted to change. No one, not even Jayadvaita, knew what he had changed. And since then, without even knowing what has been changed, the BBT has been printing this unauthorized version of Srila Prabhupada’s Caitanya-caritamrta.

So Prabhupada’s original 17 Volume Caitanya-caritamrta has been unavailable for more than fifteen years now. For the first time we are publishing it again, this time it is a digital PDF edition. These are not text files but actual scans of the original pages of Srila Prabhupada’s original 1974 Sri Caitanya-caritamrta so this is really the original books including all the color plates.

Please download and save and read the seventeen volumes of Srila Prabhupada’s original 1974 Sri Caitanya-caritamrta below!

Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!

    Please upload the higher quality files also, if possible.

    • These are the highest quality files.

    • Kirtan says:

      I wish this had been made available also in the high quality like it was Srimad-Bhagavatam. This maybe the highest quality files available but are not in higher resolution required for ideal archiving. Fonts are somewhat fuzzy and not as crisp. I understand because of size constraints CC was made available in this way, but I’d really hope that CC is made also available in the same exact way as Srimad-Bhagavatam was originally made available, regardless of file size; that is, very large files (500MB and up) for each file.

      Would it be possible to make these available also for download?

      Thank you for your great effort and service. This is amazing!

      Hare Krishna!

      • Hare Krishna Kirtan

        We are working on improving the Cc and that will be available soon as well.

    hare Krishna,

    respected, Madhusiva dasa prabhu,you are doing those things which will give happiness and satisfaction to sirla prabhupada.most of us think to do any possible service to our guru sirla prabhupada but you have done the most difficult and hard working effort,being in iskon but fighting establishing real sri prabhupada teachings is not easy.thank you to provide original teachings of real spirtual guru. surely you have done enough to go back to godhead shri krishna and take assosiation of sirla prabhupada in spirtual world.

    but please keep it up as you are doing now,as i myself know about the dangerous position of unauthorized books published by iskon ony through krishna.org,let others see the truth to save them from blunder mistake.

    if someone changes the book written by saint Shri Vedvyasa,that automatically means is is not even a human being with intelligence.in this same way if some one changes the book or teaching of a bonafide spiritual guru like shri prabhupada who only repeats the original teaching of previous saints,he immediately becomes lowest in mankind.how someone can change words of a bonafide guru,He knows and realizes soul as himself and supersoul within his heart ,as easily and naturally as we in everyday life realizes our-self as this body,and realizes our brother or sister or mother or our family with us.THIS REALIZATION WHICH SIRLA PRABHUPADA THATCHES IN HIS BOOKS is very PURE SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE COMING FROM SHRI LORD KRISHNA.

    PLEASE ALL MY FRIENDS READ PURE TO UNDERSTAND PURITY AND REAL.OTHERWISE OUR EFFORTS WILL AT LAST GIVE US NO RESULT.TIME WILL BE WASTED.

  8. sathya says:

    can you please create full detailed comparison between original SB and changed SB just like you did in the bookchanges.com bhagavad gita changes complete list.

    • There are no changes in the Srimad-Bhagavatam as yet. Up to now all the Srimad-Bhagavatams [except of course the ones that Prabhupada did not write after Tenth Canto Chapter 13] that have been printed are still the pre-1978 editions.

  9. Divya says:

    Hare Krishna Madhudvisadas Prabhuji,

    I have no words to thank you for this priceless gift. Chaitanya Charitamrit is the epic I was searching for a long time. This epic is the ultimate one. Thank you soooooooooo much.
    Please shower your blessings upon me.

    Hare Krsna!!!
    Thanks a lot for the books. Every person who is looking for spiritual knowledge should have them.

  13. Jagadish says:

    Hare Krishna!

    All glories to Guru and Gauranga!

    I bow down to your lotus feet again and again. You have done a great service to Srila Prabhupada and all the Vaishnavas taking shelter under Him and Sri RadhaKrishna.

    Thanks for providing the unadulterated nectar of scriptures. This act will definitely bring joy both to Srila Prabhupada and Lord RadhaKrishna, especially Lord Chaitanya.

    Changing something which Srila Prabhupada wrote is the greatest offense, and is like adding poison to pure milk.

    Please help stop the spread of unauthorized translations of Srila Prabhupada and please provide the Originals

    Also Prabhu, can you provide the Original, changeless works that has not been edited by some conditioned soul (though they might have been initiated by Srila Prabhupada, they are nevertheless conditioned), like Bhagavad gita as it is, matchless gift and other works.

    Thanks for providing such a great service to all the lost souls who want to take shelter under Srila Prabhupada

  15. aspirant says:

    hare krishna.
    prabhu congrats and may lord bless all of u for these priceless gems.
    But with all humility i have two doubts:-
    1) If they are scan copies how come the cursor comes on the alphabets(on the cover page too)(has the text been written???).
    2) on some of the pdf it is written “second printing 1983″.
    3) on one of them there is no mention of printing,only written “published in united states”.

    plz remove my ignorance about these so that i am absolutely assured.
    and prabhuji sorry for doubting.

    Jaya Srila Prabhupada.
    hare krisha.

    • Hare Krishna

      These are ‘clear text’ scans. It has been OCRed. That is why you can copy the text. But they are scans of the original books.

      Some volumes were reprinted in the 80′s but they are exact copies of the original books. So these are all first-edition books.

  16. Srisa dasi says:

    Hare Krishna prabhu!

    Thank you so much for your effort to make these files.

    All the best!

  17. Hare Krishna Madhudvisa Prabhu!
    Obeisances to u!

    little doubt…

    ” adi1.pdf Page 22/637 reads…

    First printing, 1974
    Second printing, 1983

    Is it second ‘edition’ ???

  18. Sri Caitanya-caritamrita is a marvellous piece of gem. It has been superbly arranged. Is this is a scanned material. But anyhow i always like to read these thing.
    Thanks for this

    • I think there is no problem with the download. Please let me know exactly a file that you can not download and I will check it. You can read it on http://www.PrabhuapdaBooks.com also.

  20. Orlando says:

    Hare Krishna Prabhu Madhudvisa
    Can you tell me where I can get a physical copy of first print C.C.?

    • madhudvisa says:

      Hare Krishna Orlando

      The original Cc. is out of print since the mid-90s. So no new copies are available. Only possibility is finding some second hand books somewhere. Maybe you could find a few volumes here and there on the second-hand book websites. But apart form that it is out of print and there is no solid plan to reprint it at the moment unfortunately.

  21. CG says:

    Hare Krishna,

    I am hoping in time to find an early editions of complete CC and SB in time. Right now I only have a newer SB, but I have a first edition single-volume CC, which was published “on the 7th anniversary of the disappearance day of Srila Prabhupada” (it doesn’t show an actual year). That sounds like 1984 to me, so I am wondering if this version is the same text as the original. It does not have any sanskrit at all, only English, but as a reference and maybe for a quicker first-time read it seemed useful. It was only around $5 at a used book store (I felt so lucky to find it!).

    I was really surprised that they edited this book actually, mainly due to it’s length. But I was at a class recently where they were reading from the newer CC and following along on my Kindle on which I have all of Prabhupada’s original books (thanks to KrishnaStore.com!), and sure enough, I heard the same sorts of subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle differences that I do when following along to a Gita class.

    • Hare Krishna

      Yes. ISKCON’s book changes are a horrible disaster. The Caitanya-caritamrta was reedited by Dravida in the 90′s I think. So a single volume Caitanya-caritamrta printed in 1984 should be the original edition. It is Krishna’s mercy on you!

      You can check it on page 1:

    Prabhuji- thank you all so much for your efforts. All Glory to Sri Guru and all true Gaudiya Vaishnavas. Do you know of possibilities to obtain an original physical 17vol CC. Appreciate it.
    Jaya Jaganath!

    • I think it will be available soon. Right now it is not available. Keep checking Krishna.org and KrishnaStore.com, if it is available you will see it there.



About the Author

My first contact with a Hare Krishna was a most merciful Mataji in Oxford Street, London who sold me a "Higher Taste" cook book in 1984 while I was on holidays there. I started seriously reading Srila Prabhupada's books in Australia 1985 and by 1986 Srila Prabhupada had convinced me "Krishna is the Supreme Personality of Godhead" and "we should surrender to Krishna."I joined the Hare Krishnas in Perth, Western Australia in 1986. Since then I have been chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare, reading and distributing Srila Prabhupada's books and preaching as much as I can.That's my life and full-time occupation now really. I like it more than anything I've ever experienced before. Srila Prabhupada's books are so amazing... Even after reading them all many times they're still fresh and new. They are truly transcendental!That's it really. Now I'm just hankering to once again see the world chant Hare Krishna, dance and feast and float away in the ecstasy of Lord Caitanya's Sankirtana movement as it did in Srila Prabhupada's physical presence. Let the whole world drown in the ecstatic flood of love of Krishna!
