This is an overview notes of all chapters of the Sri Caitanya Caritamrita, translated and commented by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. We have tried to present the flow of each chapter within two or more pages, with paraphrased translations. This may be used as a quick guide to any chapter of Sri Caitanya Caritamrita while studying or while giving a presentation.
However, this notes is not meant to substitute a detailed study of Sri Caitanya Caritamrita translated by Srila Prabhupada, but is meant only to assist the reader in appreciating the whole chapter at a glance. Many chapters of Sri Caitanya Caritamrita contain few hundred verses (100 to more than 300). So, the team of Bhaktivedanta Vidyapitha at Govardhan Eco Villageattempted to divide each chapter into sections and subsections and thus present the flow of each chapter in brief.
Also this notes contains the themes of Srila Prabhupada’s purports for several purports given in footnotes. The section and sub-section titles are provided for an easy understanding of the flow of the chapter. Tables and flowcharts are provided wherever necessary for the easy reference for appropriate sections.
This is an attempt to serve the Vaisnava community at large, as a part of our study of Sri Caitanya Caritamrita at the Vidhyapitha. We have tried to present the Sri Caitanya Caritamrita without any deviation. In case of any ambiguity please refer to the Sri Caitanya Caritamrita by Srila Kaviraja Goswami translated and commented by Srila Prabhupada.
