Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Set Sample Photos

Sri Caitanya-caritamrta is the principal work on the life and teachings of Sri Krishna Caitanya, the Supreme Personality of Godhead appearing as His own devotee. He was the pioneer of a great social and religious movement beginning in India about 500 years ago that has directly and indirectly influenced the course of religious and philosophical thinking throughout the world.

While the west was exploring the physical world, in India Sri Krishna Caitanya was exploring inward, exhibiting unparalleled spiritual potency, and discovering the truths of consciousness and transcendental reality.

As a young boy Sri Caitanya overwhelmed and astounded scholars, establishing His own school at the age of sixteen. Within His lifetime He transformed India in four respects: philosophically, by defeating the greatest philosophers of His day; socially, by opposing the blindly rigid caste system; politically, by organizing India's first civil disobedience movement against repression by the Mohammedan government; and spiritually, by freely distributing nonsectarian love of God. Sri Caitanya-caritamrta presents Sri Caitanya as the Golden Avatar, the incarnation of Krishna in this age in the form of His devotee.

Srila Prabhupada at Bhaktivedanta Manor LondonLord Chaitanya introduced the chanting of the holy names of God as the prescribed method of God-realization for our time. He began what is today called the Hare Krishna movement, since the movement's founder, Srila Prabhupada, comes in the Chaitanya line of spiritual masters.

This English translation with commentary, by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, reveals his consummate Bengali and Sanskrit scholarship, his intimate familiarity with the precepts of Sri Chaitanya, and his pure devotion to God.

Alvin Castilloveitia - 04/16/2017 5 of 5 Stars!
Excellent quality binding and the most important thing is that is the original book without the changes and revisions made by the BBT personnel. I want to read what Srila Prabhupada wrote without any corrections, as it came out of his heart and mind, based in his own knowledge acquired over the years in service of his Gurudeva. It is a great privilege to be able to learn from him directly through his most dear and beloved books. It is like having my Guru in home with me. All is in the books. Aside from it, just perform devotional service and distribute his books to others, as he intend his society to do... a world missionary task force.

Nancy Christofferson - 08/17/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
They're simply the best books you can own! They're original - As Prabhupada wrote them when he was still in his body. And I love the fact they're hard bound & not with sleeves! Light in weight, perfect size & practical. Another of Prabhupada's gift of generosity & love for his disciples because the translation is great & very poetic. If all mankind could put their egos aside & read the books, humanity would wake up & chant the name of Krsna!
Vade Cheddie - 07/06/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
Do not miss out on this offer my fellow devotees, You see, a lot of people I find that they are not spiritually advanced enough to relish the true nectar of Srila Prabhupada's books, some look upon them as ordanary books, but a true devotee would know otherwise. These are not ordinary books and as such they are a MUST HAVE!! and they are actually worth much more than the material value that they cost. It cost $108 as the price says however by the SPRITUAL VALUE of these books, it is worth more than SOLID GOLD.!! I wish for everyone to own a complete set of Bhagvatam and Sri Caitanya-caritamrta. do not hesitate.
Mogana Rajagopal - 05/25/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
HAribol!!! Received my order on time, well packed and all books shrink wrapped. A MUST HAVE! Kudos to a wonderful team for making this happen for us devotees....our eternal obeisances to Srila Prabhupad for bringing these GEM to us! Sri Sri Nitai Gaura Premanande! Jai Srila Prabhupad!!!
Mohanakrishnan Balaram - 04/15/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
In my review of Srimad Bhagavatam (30 Volume Set), I had mentioned that I purchased it for the compact size and lesser weight that would help me carry a volume whenever I am travelling. Ditto for the Chaitanya Charitamrita. I have the 9 volume BBT edition, but I wanted this so I ordered it. As for the Bhagavatam the whole order, payment, delivery process was smooth with out any hitches. The quality of the books are very good, the print is also very good. The icing on the cake (vegetarian) for me was receiving the boxed set from the courier company on Gaura Purnima Day. I felt humbled and blessed to receive it on that day, taking it as the mercy of Lord Chaitanya and promptly read Chapter 13 of the Adi Lila as recommended in `A Beginners Guide to Krishna Consciousness`.
Vade Cheddie - 03/19/2016 5 of 5 Stars!
This is a must Have for any sincere devotee of the lord, and in beautiful hardcover, original 1974 edition, it may not get any better than this!
