The Teachings of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu: Part Three

In this very special multi-part livestream event, Sri Dharma Pravartaka Acharya shares with us the teachings of the great Vaishnava saint, Acharya and avesha-avatara known as Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (1486-1534). Though Sri Chaitanya was one of the most important and influential Vaishnava sages in recent centuries, he left us with only eight precious verses in his own writing, known as the Shikshashtakam (The Eight Instructions). In this series of talks, Sri Acharyaji comments upon these eight sacred teachings.

“O Govinda! Feeling Your separation, I am considering a moment to be like twelve years or more. Tears are flowing from my eyes like torrents of rain, and I am feeling all vacant in the world in Your absence.” (Shikshashtakam, 7)

I know no one but Krishna as my Lord, and He shall remain so even if He handles me roughly by His embrace or makes me brokenhearted by not being present before me. He can freely do anything and everything, for He is always my worshipful Lord unconditionally.” (Shikshashtakam, 8)
