The Golden Avatara by Gauri das


Putting all esoterica aside, he was a young man at a very tense time in medieval India, who spoke out against the rigid religious stratification of people, embraced the subaltern, challenged the orthodoxy and spoke of love, a love above and beyond all other considerations. Dismissing the endless rules and rituals of religious purification he instructed all to just gather and sing God's names with love, humility and sincerity. That's Sri Chaitanya, and with all of our colourful narratives, we would do well not to forget this.
