In the Kali Yuga the Supreme Lord comes as One Who always chants the Holy Name of Sri Krishna, Who is Sri Krishna Himself, Whose complexion is yellow.Srimad Bhagwatam (XI:5:32)

These words of the massive Srimad Bhagwatam, recorded by the author of the famous Bhagavad-Gita, Vyasadev, foretell the advent of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Lord Chaitanya, like Christ, was a spiritual revolutionary Who taught that conceptions of being Hindu, Christian, Muslim, black, white, male and female are “bodily designations that are finished when the body is finished.” His Peace Formula is this: all living entities, including trees, bacteria, ants, cows and humans are eternal spiritual sparks of the Supreme Lord and all are brothers who have the same One Father. In Teachings of Lord Chaitanya, A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami presents to the West the sublime life and teachings of this great transcendental Personality of the 15th century Whose Sankirtan Movement swept first India, and now the West.

Many philosophers recognise God to be a force that is beyond name or form, but Chaitanya Mahaprabhu taught that God is a Person Who has Form, Qualities, Name and Pastimes–but Who is nevertheless Absolute and Transcendental and beyond anything we have experienced in this material world.

Lord Chaitanya journeyed up and down the subcontinent of India to deliver the easiest, most glorious method of self-realisation: chanting of the Hare Krishna Mantra. His explanations of the esoteric Vedanta Sutra converted many impersonalists, turning them “from dried sticks into blooming flowers.” He led thousands in massive Kirtan parades of ecstasy, and even caused tigers in the jungles to swoon.

Teachings of Lord Chaitanya is a remarkable book which answers definitively the unanswered questions burning within man’s heart. The Swamiji’s chapter entitled “The Beauty of Krishna” is a description of the stunning beauty of God which stands by itself as one of the most sublime lyrical achievements in all mystic literature. His vast scholarship qualifies him as the most erudite Vedic scholar now writing in English. As Acharya (meaning one who teaches by example) of the Sankirtan Movement today, the Swami lectures at numerous temples and writes out of his daily experiences with the authority of a master, so that his books are both learned and practical, instructive as well as deeply moving. To read A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami’s books is to understand that here is one who knows the Absolute Truth, one who can teach it perfectly.



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!

    1)My friend has read almost all the books in the Book Distribution Megapack except TLC. Could you please suggest to me whether to give her the book before she reads SB? Will she be able to understand it. Personally I felt that it was easier to understand TLC after having read SB.

    2)She cannot read SB immediately since she does not have access to computer but I can make it available to her by printing them in a cyber cafe. I would like to know if it is correct on my path to cut out the mantra written in sanskrit and the word to word meaning only. Am I altering Srila Prabhupada’s books? I thought it would take lesser pages to print……

    3) Another friend of mine has access to computer and has also read all books in the megapack except TLC. Although she can read SB first ,she likes to read in books so I have to give her the TLC . So is it okay if she reads TLC first and then SB. Will the philosophy go into her head?

    I wish to remain your eternal humble servant…..

    Gone through the articles. I have no negative remarks against any Saint(Rishis) or seers. Still I am interested to find out the truth. Accordingly to different sources like Veda and Puran, Vyyas was the complier of Vedas as well as Mahabharata. Further I came to know that Manu the son of Brahma was the first man, but who was first women, I am under suspense.

    I do admit that creations mean there most be a creator. If Brahma is creator, Vishnu is preserver and Shiva is destructor, then how the entire earth was populated with out a wife of Manu? Who was the wife of Manu? Further I may say that why the concept of Idol worship still exist in India? Why the concept of Bible,Quran and Geeta differ. I do admit that the the people who have writeen Purans,Bhagabata Geta,Bible and quran are the divine people. But still I am under suspense.

    • Hare Krishna!

      All these things are clearly and elaborately discussed in the beginning chapters of Srimad-Bhagavatam.

      Krishna can create without the help of a wife and so can Lord Brahma. Many different living entities and species of life were born out of the body of Lord Brahma and some of these were prajapatis who, in turn gave birth to many different species of life. It is a great science and you have to study it in Srimad-Bhagavatam, it is not possible to describe it in a few paragraphs.

      As far as “idol worship” the Vedas does not in any way support “idol worship”. Krishna agrees to appear in the form of the Diety and in that form He accepts the worship from His devotees. The Deity of Krishna IS KRISHNA. It is not an “idol”. This you can practically realized if you worship Krishna. You will gradually see that the deity is not a brass or marble from at all, He is Krishna. This requires realization.

      Chant Hare Krishna and be happy!
