Visuddha caitanya-vani is the fully blossomed form of amnaya-vani or transcendental teachings received through the supremely pure guru-parampara via the medium of kirtana. Through the process of Sravana (hearing), it eventually seats itself in the heart of the sat-sigya (worthy disciple). The antaranga-parikaras (intimate associates) of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu-devotees like Srila SvarUpa Damodara Gosvami, Sri Raya Ramananda, Srila RUpa Gosvami, Sfila Sanatana Gosvami, Shia Raghunatha clasa Gosvami, Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami, Srila Vigvanatha Cakravarti Thakura and, in the modern era, Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, Sfila Prabhupacla Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, Sri Srimad Bhakti Dayita Madhava Gosvami Maharaja and other disciples of Srila Prabhupada-are the protectors of this viguddha caitanya-vani. Just as Sriman Mahaprabhu remains eternally surrounded by these antaranga-parikaras, His Orli is intrinsically linked with their vani. Therefore, the term viguddha caitanya-vani is defined as the embodiment of the teachings and conduct of not only Sriman Mahaprabhu, but of all His associates, as well.

The sole objective of the pure followers of vifuddha caitanya-vani is to attain the unalloyed krsna-prema present in the hearts of the vraja-gopis, who fearlessly gave their foot dust to Sri Krsna in order to relieve His headache.' Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu appeared in this world to distribute this very prema, which had not been given in an extremely long time and is without even the slightest tinge of atmedriya-priti-vitiica (the desire to please one's own senses). This viguddha caitanya-vatti is the wealth of Goloka Vrndavana, and its fortunate recipients hanker only to fulfill the innermost heartfelt desires of Sri Krsna, without the slightest concern for consequence. Indeed, for the service of Sri Krsna, they are unafraid of even permanent residence in hell, and they thoroughly reject even the apprehension shown by Sri Govinda Prabhu, the personal servant of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu who, out of fear of offending griman Mahaprabhu in the pursuit of His service, once laid a cloth over the Lord before stepping over Him. Due to the influence of Kali-yuga, many sense enjoyers and unqualified individuals who possess a disregard for scriptural evidence have, from time to time, attempted to conceal and distort the true form of viguddha caitanya-vemi for their personal gain. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura states in the gruti-phala of Jaiva-dharma:

Prthivite jata katha dharma-name cale

bhagavata kahe sab a paripurna chale

All the philosophies in this world that are celebrated as dharma have been condemned as utterly deceptive by Srimad-Bhagavatam.
