1. Lord Caitanya comes to help us understand Krsna

    You cannot understand Krsna without the mercy of these Panca-tattva. Therefore Krsna, although He came personally, He taught the teachings of Bhagavad-gita and asked people, sarva-dharman parityajya mam ekam saranam vraja [Bg. 18.66].

    But because we are mudhas, we misunderstood Krsna. We could not take the last instruction of Krsna. Therefore Krsna again came as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to teach us how to approach Krsna. If we read the life of Caitanya Mahaprabhu, His acceptance of sannyasa order, His preaching all over India, His chanting and dancing, His living at Jagannath Puri, His activities, His meeting with the devotees, His Gundica-marjana, His Ratha-yatra kirtana — if we study all these activities of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, immediately you understand Krsna.

    Therefore, we are inviting you at this place of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, His birth site, to take the inspiration given by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. That will help us understanding Krsna.
