The Purpose of Lord Caitanya’s Descent

 

Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Goswami Maharaja

Excerpts from Srila Bhaktivedanta Narayana Maharaja’s “Necar Sprinkles on Australia”

We shall continue our reading from Caitanya-caritamrta, Third Chapter, which explains who Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is, and how and why He came to this world.

Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja tells us that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Sacinandana Gaurahari, is Krsna Himself, Svayam Krsna. He is not only Bhagavan, but Svayam Bhagavan 1, Vrajendranandana Krsna. This Krsna is eternally situated with all His attributes, and with His power, which is personified in the form of Srimati Radhika. Even if the sun could be separated from its heat and light, Radha and Krsna can never be separated.
