Description
Foreword

Long period of about 500 years is past since Shree Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, the Fountain-head of Prema, last paid His Divine visit to the blessed country of India. From the earliest days of yore India is proud of her high fortunes, in as much as, the Incarnations of Godhead have mostly honoured this land of the East. But it is a regretable fact that in this so short a time, a deep veil of forgetfulness of His preachings has covered the horizon of Vaishnavism and the people are steeped into the darkness of ignorance even about Shri Chaitanyadeva, Who is Krishna Himself. Not only so, things went still further when the highest philosophy of Vaishnavism was taken up by a number of characterless illiterate fellows who poured it into their mental mint and gave it a crooked shape. It was undoubtedly a sad desideratum that Vaishnavism with all its special learning and highest philosophy should never again be hoisted before 'the eyes of the world.

This brouchure contains the essence of true Vaishnavism as revealed in the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Geeta, the Bhagavata, etc. and their teachings put into practice by Sri Chaitanya Deva. Four things may stand in the way of realising the truth laid here-in the cloaks of (high or low) birth and station, (proficiency or deficiency in) worldly knowledge, and (beautiful or ugly, male or female) form. The Oversoul within Whom all individual souls are contained and to Whom all souls knowingly or unknowingly submit, confutes our tricks and talents. The words of every soul who speaks from that life must sound vain to those who do not dwell in the same thought on their own part. When the walls of time and space are taken away we lie open on one side to the boundless deeps of spiritual nature and to the attributes of the Supreme Lord, find that there is another youth and another age than that which is measured from the year of our worldly birth and realise that the scale of the soul is one and the scale of the senses and understanding- the agents of the material mind is another.

The soul in man is not the mind directing the organs of sense and action but the animation of the mind and these organs and the back-ground of our existence. The angle of vision between these individual souls and the Over-soul is one and the same everywhere whereas there is a distinctive variety and multiplicity of the angles of vision between the material minds and the world of the senses.

These lines will probably create a desire to know in all details the essential nature of the Eternal or Absolute Truth and prompt honest and sincere enquiry in all who will go through them.
