A Word Of Appreciation

Books are the basis. Purity is the force. Preaching is the essence. Utility is the principle. Shrila Prabhupada said that his translations of the Vedic literatures would be the law books for society during the next 10,000 years. How can I properly describe the true glory of the literature that Shrila Prabhupada left us?

We are chanting Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare/Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare only by the mercy of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, and indeed, this Krishna consciousness movement is His creation. How can I properly describe the importance of His creation. How can I properly describe the importance of reading Shrila Prabhupadas translation and commentary on Krishnadasa Kaviraja's Shri Chaitanya-charitamrita?

Chanting Hare Krishna is very easy to do. Even a child can chant Hare Krishna. However, reading the 17 volumes of Shri Chaitanya-charitamrita is not so easy. This is the dilemma. On the one hand, every devotee should repeatedly hear the pastimes of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. On the other hand, if one is not educated and accustomed to study, or if one is very busy, then it may be difficult to do this.

Hare is a solution. This summary study of Shri Chaitanya-charitamrita provides the reader with a full narration of the pastimes described in that great literature, as well as the most prominent lessons from the commentary. Of course, for those who are accustomed to reading Shrila Prabhupada's translation and commentary, there is no necessity for reading this volume. But, for those who are not so accustomed, I heartily recommend the reading of this book. Indeed, It is hoped that the readers of this single volume will gradually aspire to study carefully Shrila Prabhupadas work.

Purnaprajna das wrote this summary as a tool for his study, and not at all with the intention of printing it. However, seeing the great number of new devotees and desiring to help them to taste the nectar of Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's pastimes, he has decided to print this summary study as an offering to his spiritual master. It is my sincere hope that Shrila Prabhupada is pleased with his endeavor.
