The Golden Avatar Backstory

In the biography Chaitanya Mangala, the saintly Lochana Das provides elaborate details about the events leading up to the appearance of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who introduced the joyful process of Kirtan, congregational chanting of God's holy names, as the means of deliverance in this age.

Our storyteller Harinama Dasi narrates these pastimes in present tense, giving us the feeling of being right there amid the action, looking over the shoulders of great personalities like Narada, Lakshmi, Brahma and Shiva, as they prepare for the Lord's advent.
