Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita
The Ambrosial Nectar of the Moonlight of
Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and His Holy Name.

By Tridandi Goswamikula Mukutamani Parivrajakacharya
Gaura Parshadavara His Divine Grace
Shrila Prabodhananda Sarasvati Thakura

Translated by His Holiness Bhaktiratna Sadhu Swami Gaurangapada

His Divine Grace Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura Prabhupada writes:

"If those who are opposed to the Holy Name, Form, Pastimes and Incarnation of the Supreme Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu read or hear Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita their mind, heart and consciousness will become completely pure, cleansed and purified of all envy towards the Supreme Personality of Godhead Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu and they will engage in His pure devotional service. Then what to speak if the devotees of Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu read Shri Chaitanya Chandramrita. If the faithful devotees of Lord Gauranga read this great Holy Scripture, they will certainly and surely drown and inundate themselves in the supremely joyful and unparalleledly blissful ocean of pure love for Lord Gauranga Mahaprabhu which is the ultimate destination of each and every soul in creation."
