Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is the Supreme Person, Krishna Himself, in the form of His own devotee. He appears in this world to spread love for Krishna through the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord. He appeared in Sridhama Mayapur, West Bengal, in 1486. His activities and teachings are described in detail in the book Teachings of Lord Chaitanya and the multi-volume Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita.
