The ultimate disguise

A collection of videos and audio from the international Hare Krishna community on the subject of Gaura Purnima, the appearance anniversary of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Hear who Lord Chaitanya is, why He chose to appear not as God Himself but as a devotee, how His appearance affects everyone, and what we can learn from His revolutionary teachings.

Note: videos are hosted by YouTube, so please consider anything else you may see there (besides these selections) to be in the "viewer discretion advised" category.
