Srila Prabhupada taught us that Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu was the Supreme Personality of Godhead appearing as His own devotee on earth five hundred years ago. Krsna as Lord Caitanya tasted the bliss that Srimati Radharani experienced in loving Him and simultaneously distributed that prema to the jivas of the material realm. On the strength of Srila Prabhupada’s own conviction; on the strength of the several Vedic evidences he quoted; on the strength of the Gaudiya-Vaisnava acaryas’ opinions and on the realization which comes from chanting and participating in the Sankirtana Movement-some devotees have been fortunate enough to receive faith in the divinity of Lord Caitanya.
Others however, are doubtful. First there are those who doubt that someone appearing so much like an ordinary man could be God incarnate. Secondly there are those who worship their own elected “avataras” or “incarnations” as God. Thirdly there are those who simply don’t know. All of these are in trouble by not recognizing Lord Caitanya’s unique position.
