Teachings of Lord Chaitanya

If one desires to understand the sun as it is, one must first face the sunshine, then the sun globe and, after entering into that globe, come face to face with the predominating deity of the sun etc.,

Similarly, one has to penetrate the dazzling effulgence of Brahman before one can see the real face of the Personality of Godhead.

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya (preface)--

Apure devotee is a soul who is forever surrendered to the Lord, just as a child is surrendered to his parents. 

In the surrendering process, one should: 

(1) accept things favorable for discharging devotional service, 
(2) reject things unfavorable, 
(3) believe firmly in the Lord's protection, 
(4) feel exclusively dependent on the mercy of the Lord, 
(5) have no interest separate from the interest of the Lord, 
and (6) always feel oneself meek and humble.

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya (preface)--

The highest mode of worship in the highest perfectional stage is the method practiced by the damsels of Vraja. These damsels (gopīs, or cowherd girls) simply loved Kṛṣṇa without a motive for material or spiritual gain. 

-Teachings of Lord Chaitanya--

By the chanting of the holy name of the Lord one can directly associate with the Supreme Lord by sound vibration. As one practices this sound vibration, he passes through three stages of development: the offensive stage, the clearing stage and the transcendental stage. In the offensive stage one may desire all kinds of material happiness, but in the second stage one becomes clear of all material contamination. When one is situated on the transcendental stage, he attains the most coveted position — the stage of loving God. 

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya--
 — con Lav Kush Tiwari.

Yoga practice is essentially meant for controlling the senses. The central controlling factor of all the senses is the mind; therefore one first has to practice controlling the mind by engaging it in Kṛṣṇa consciousness. 

The gross activities of the mind are expressed through the external senses, either for the acquiring of knowledge or the functioning of the senses in accordance to the will. 

The subtle activities of the mind are thinking, feeling and willing. 

In accordance to one's consciousness, the individual is either polluted or clear. If one's mind is fixed on Kṛṣṇa (His name, quality, form, pastimes, entourage and paraphernalia), all one's activities — both subtle and gross — become favorable. The Bhagavad-gītā's process of purifying consciousness is the process of fixing one's mind on Kṛṣṇa by talking of His transcendental activities, cleansing His temple, going to His temple, seeing the beautiful transcendental form of the Lord nicely decorated, hearing His transcendental glories, tasting food offered to Him, associating with His devotees, smelling the flowers and tulasī leaves offered Him, engaging in activities for the Lord's interest, etc. 

No one can bring the activities of the mind and senses to a stop, but one can purify these activities through a change in consciousness. 

A human being is sometimes restricted in sense gratification due to certain circumstances such as disease, etc., but this is not the prescription. Without knowing the actual process by which the mind and senses can be controlled, less intelligent men either try to stop the mind and senses by force, or they give in to them and are carried away by the waves of sense gratification.

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya--

When Lord Caitanya began His instructions to Rūpa Gosvāmī, He first told him, "My dear Rūpa, the science of devotional service is just like the great ocean, and it is not possible to show you all its length and breadth. However, I shall try to explain the nature of that ocean by taking just one drop out of it. In this way you can taste it and understand what that ocean of devotional service actually is"

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya (chap. 1)--

It is said in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam that the length and breadth of the individual soul is approximately 1/10,000th part of the tip of a hair — in other words, it is so small that it is invisible. This is also confirmed in the Śvetāśvatara Upaniṣad. 

In the Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, one of the four Kumāras, known as Sanandana, gave the following speech upon performing a great sacrifice:"O Supreme Truth! If the living entities were not infinitesimal sparks of the supreme spirit, each minute spark would be all-pervading and would not be controlled by a superior power. But if the living entity is accepted as a minute part and parcel of the Supreme Lord he automatically becomes controlled by a supreme energy or power. The latter is his actual constitutional position, and if he remains in this position he can attain full freedom." 

If one mistakenly considers his position to be equal to that of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he becomes contaminated by the doctrine of nonduality, and his efforts in transcendental life are rendered ineffective.

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya (preface)--
 — conSreepad Biswas.

There are two kinds of living entities — the eternally liberated and the eternally conditioned. 

Liberated souls engage with faith and devotion in the service of the Lord, and they are called kṛṣṇa-bhaktas, or Kṛṣṇa conscious persons.

The eternally conditioned living entities can be divided into two types — moving and nonmoving. 

Those entities which cannot move — like trees, for example — remain in one place and are classified as nonmoving entities, and those that move — such as the birds and beasts — are called jańgama (moving entities) and are further divided into three categories: those that fly in the sky, those that swim in the water, and those that walk on land.

Out of the many millions and trillions of living entities on land, human beings comprise only a small portion... 

--Teachings of Lord Chaitanya (preface)--

By the mercy of the spiritual master and Kṛṣṇa, one receives the seed of devotional service. He has only to sow the seed in the field of his heart, just as a gardener sows the seed of a valuable tree. 

After sowing this seed, one has to water it in the form of chanting and hearing the holy name of the Supreme Lord or by taking part in discussions about the science of devotional service in a society of pure devotees. When the plant of devotional service sprouts up from the seed of devotion, it begins to grow freely. 

When it is full grown, it surpasses the length and breadth of this universe and enters into the transcendental atmosphere, where everything is bathed in the effulgence of the brahmajyoti. 

The plant even penetrates this brahmajyoti and gradually enters the planet known as Goloka Vṛndāvana. 

There the plant takes shelter at the lotus feet of Kṛṣṇa. That is the ultimate goal of devotional service. After attaining this position, the plant produces fruit, which is known as the fruit of love of Godhead. However, it is necessary for the devotee, or transcendental gardener, to pour water on the plant daily by chanting and hearing.

Unless one waters the plant by chanting and hearing, there is every chance that it will dry up.
