The Sri Caitanya-siksamrta contains the essence of the Vedas and so directs all humanity to the unrestricted eternal world of the delightful pastimes of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna.
The instructions of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu are of unparalled importance to mankind in the present age of Kali-yuga. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura progressively presents teaching relevant to all sections of human society and clarifies how these teachings may be practically applied in the modern world.
This book progressively presents teachings relevant to all sections of human society and clarifies how these teachings may be practically applied in the modern world. Containing the essence of the Vedas, the teachings are a wonderfull rainfall of nectar that douses the forest fire of Kali-yuga quarrel and hypocrisy. Thus the book is divided into eight “Rainfalls of Nectar”, and each of these is sub-divided into “Showers” of instruction. Some spectacular photos of rare paintings are part of the book, particularly a multitudinous sankirtana of the mid 17th Century, a rare painting of the 16th Century original commissioned by Maharaja Prataparudra from Jagannatha Puri depicts Mahaprabhu with his consorts, Gadhadhara Pandit reciting the Srimad Bhagavatam, and there is also a photo of the original Salagrama-sila worshipped by Sri Advaita Acarya to invole the avatara of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. The sila is still worshipped in the Madana-gopala temple of Santipura, Bengal. . . .
