Throughout the ages, many avataras - divinely inspired teachers and incarnations of God - have appeared in the world, but none has ever distributed spiritual love as freely as the Golden Avatar, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

He taught a practical process that anyone can perform to directly feel the ecstasy of pure love of God. His extraordinary life and teachings are summarized herein.
