Incarnation for the Modern Age
Who was Chaitanya Mahaprabhu?
Sri Chaitanya is the Kali-yuga avatara, and He descended for the purpose of establishing the yuga dharma, which in this age is the chanting of Lord Krishna’s names. He appeared in the guise of a devotee to perfectly show how the process of devotion should be followed and applied. It is something like a teacher drawing on the black board “A B C”. We should not think the teacher is himself learning the alphabets, but he is doing it to show us how to write properly.
