1. The significance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu

    Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s activities means His distributing krsna-prema, love of Krsna. He has no other business. He has no other business. At the full youthful age He gave up His family life, beautiful wife, most obedient, perfect wife, beautiful wife, mother, affectionate mother, very good prestige, social prestige. Nimai Pandita, learned scholar, everything He sacrificed. Tyaktva su-dustyaja rajya laksmim [SB 11.5.34]. Gave up everything — that is the teachings of Lord Caitanya — and became a servant of Krsna personally. He’s Krsna Himself, but teaching us how to become servant of Krsna. This is the significance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
