Who Is Lord Chaitanya?
And what did He bring to the world?
Lord Chaitanya appeared on the full moon night in February in the year 1486, at the time of a lunar eclipse. At this time, on account of the lunar eclipse that was in progress, the people of the entire region were engaged in chanting the Holy Name.
He was born in a high class brahmin family and was the second son of Jagannath Mishra and his wife Sachi Devi who lived in the town of Navadwip, West Bengal, India. His parents named him ‘Vishvambhar’.
Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is none other than the Supreme Lord Krishna, appearing in the dress of a devotee. Although the Supreme Lord Himself, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu
showed by His perfect example what it means to be a “pure devotee of God” by propagating the primary religious practice of the age, namely the chanting of the Holy Name of the Lord. The purpose of Lord Chaitanya’s appearance was to bless the entire world by spreading the chanting the holy names of the Lord to every town and village on the planet.
While other avatars of the Lord descended with various paraphernalia to deal with the demoniac and irreligious influences of the time, Lord Chaitanya came equipped with the most powerful weapon of all to quell irreligious influence, the chanting of the maha mantra. He came not to kill the demoniac element in human society but to reform and bless them. Thus He is referred to in scripture as the most merciful incarnation of the Lord.
This chanting of the holy name of Lord Krishna is the sublime and easy process in this age for the deliverance of all souls from the clutches of illusion, and irreligion. Lord Chaitanya made no conditions to adopt this chanting process, He simply requested that one adopt it and reap the benefit. By this chanting process the heart will, in due course of time, radiate pure of love of God.
