Introduction
The Brahma-samhita is a work often quoted by the Gaudiya acaryas. The fifth chapter of this work was discovered by Lord Caitanya while he was traveling as a sannyasi in the Adi-kesava temple in South India. This event is described in Caitanya Caritamrta Madhya 9.237. When he found this work, tears came to his eyes. He began trembling and perspiring, and his hairs stood on end in ecstasy. He considered this work to express the conclusion of all scriptures and to be the essence of all Vaisnava scriptures.

He had a copy of this work made and brought it back to Puri.

Since that time it has been revered among the Gaudiyas. This work presents Krishna as Svayam Bhagavan, as does Srimad Bhagavatam, and shows his relation to the forms of Visnu, Siva, Durga, Ganesa, and Brahma. Though the whole of the Brahma-samhita has not been located, the fifth chapter stands alone as a short but complete work. The work is straightforward, but jrva Gosvami has written a commentary to clarify the ambiguous points.
