The essence of His teachings are as follows: Lord Sri Krsna, who appeared as the son of the King of Vraja (Nanda Maharaja), is the Supreme Personality of Godhead and is worshipable by all. Prior to his appearance, there was no evidence of prema bhakti in the Madhva line. It was at this time that He preached Vaishnavism at intervals. The Advent Of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. He went first to Kurmaksetra, where He performed a miracle by curing a leper named Vasudeva. No production of any poet or philosopher could be laid before Mahaprabhu unless Svarupa had passed it as pure and useful. This fact has been admitted in his ‘adhangas’, which have been collected in a volume by Mr. Satyendra Nath Tagore of the Bombay Civil Service. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu: His Life and Precepts. This he markedly did in the case of Junior Haridasa. The length of which was around six feet. After His fifth year, He was admitted into a pathasala where He picked up Bengali in a very short time. The ladies of the neighbourhood styled him Gaurahari on account of His golden complexion, and His mother called Him Nimai on account of the ‘nimba’ tree near which He was born. As a ‘sannyasi’, Krishna Chaitanya put on nothing but a ‘kaupina’ (two pieces of cloth, a loin cloth) and a ‘bahirvasa’ (outer covering). Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the pioneer of the modern Hare Krishna movement, appeared in Mayapur, West Bengal over 500 years ago.He is Krishna Himself, who appeared to inaugurate the yuga-dharma – the Harinama Sankirtana … There were now two Gaur-Nitai in the kirtan! At Rangakshetra He stayed for four months in the house of one Venkata Bhatta in order to spend the rainy season.

Their names had been changed by the Emperor into Dabir Khas and Sakara Mallik, and their master loved them heartily since they were both learned in Persian, Arabic and Sanskrit and were loyal servants of the state. The ‘brahmana’ was persuaded to cook for the third time. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the most merciful manifestation of Shyamsundar endowed with the mood and lustre of Srimati Radhika, descended to this material world for the benefit of the fallen conditioned living entities during the quarrelsome age of Kali and propogated the chanting of the holy names of Sri Krishna. He always stayed with Mahaprabhu. When only four years of age He sat on rejected cooking pots which were considered unholy by His mother. After sending Sanatana to Vrindavana, Mahaprabhu went to Puri again through the jungles with His comrade Balabhadra. He lived in Nabadwipa. As He grew up He became a whimsical and frolicsome lad. Thence He walked through Balasore and Cuttack to Puri, seeing the Temple of Bhuvaneshvara on His way. He was born in Nadia (Vidyanagara) and taught innumerable pupils in the ‘nyaya’ philosophy in his tola there. In this latter place He spiritualized one Tukarama, who became from that time a religious preacher himself. The ‘sannyasis’ of Benares soon fell at the feet of Chaitanya and asked for His grace (‘krpa’). There He converted the whole family of Venkata from Ramanuja Vaishnavism to Krishna-bhakti, along with the son of Venkata, a boy of ten years named Gopala, who afterwards came to Vrindavana and became one of the six Goswamis or prophets serving under their leader Sri Krishna Chaitanya.

According to Chaitanya Bhagavat, which gives a detailed description of Mahaprabhu's life, Mahaprabhu made a prediction that the holy name of Krishna will be sung in every town and … Sarvabhauma then requested Mahaprabhu to hear his recitation of the Vedanta-sutras, and the latter tacitly submitted. …Nimai marched out with His ‘sankirtan’ divided in 14 groups, and on His arrival in the Kazi’s house, He held a long conversation with the Kazi and in the end communicated into his heart His Vaishnava influence by touching his body.

He swooned at the name of Krishna and behaved as an inspired man under the influence of His religious sentiment. Keshava Misra of Kashmir, who had called himself the Great Digvijayi, came to Nadia with a view to discuss with the ‘pandita’ of that place. Nityananda Prabhu, who was then a preacher of Vaishnavism and who had then completed His travels all over India, joined Him at that time. Mahaprabhu agreed to that proposition and in a few days left Shantipura for Orissa. The two gentlemen had found no way to come back as regular Hindus and had written to Mahaprabhu for spiritual help while He was at Puri. To this Gaurahari requested him to reduce his fixed number of rounds, for he had reached old age and must take care of his health as well.
