Teachings of lord Chaitanya
Lord Chaitanya’s teachings are found in different scriptures. Best known are the eight verses called Siksastakam. In Siksastakam lord Chaitanya has summarized the mystery, process and conclusion of devotional process, mainly the chanting of holy name.
According to Siksastakam, there is no difference between God and his Holy names as God has invested all his divine energy into holy names. Chanting of holy names is the only hope for the peoples who are in the bondage of material existence. There are no hard and fast rules for chanting holy names . Anyone can chant Holy names in any time and circumstances. Holy names alone can give the highest perfection. So, he has appealed us to chant the holy name of God. He has distributed the rare love of Krishna for free via his eight verses. Lord has appealed us to chant the Holy name in humble and tolerant state.
Despite of so plain teaching and so easy path we have no interest for chanting the holy name of God. Those, who chant the holy name of God, will be saved. They will get the opportunity to go back home to Godhead. It is all the power of holy name of God. Furthermore he has practically illustrated the process of devotion, Sankritan ceremony and so on.
This is great opportunity for entire civilization. It is all upon us to utilize this opportunity. This golden opportunity created by Golden Avatar Chaitanya Mahaprabhu will be best utilized if we chant the Mahamantra – Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare.
