Vedic texts state that Lord Chaitanya is the
Supreme Person, Krishna, appearing as His own worshiper. He is
the combined form of
Krishna and Krishna's
most dear devotee, Srimati Radharani. He came to experience the
love She feels for Him,
and to show by
example how to fully
surrender to Krishna. He exhibited symptoms
of love of God to the
highest degree, and
emphasized chanting
the holy names of
Krishna as the best means to attain love of
God. References: Srimad- Bhagavatam
1.7.13-14 , purport—Lord

entity, and as such
He never comes
under the cloud of
maya. Krishna, His
expansions and even His higher
devotees never fall
into the clutches of
illusion. Lord
Chaitanya came to
earth simply to preach Krishna-
bhakti, love of
Krishna. In other
words, He is Lord
Krishna Himself
teaching the living entities the proper
way to approach
Krishna. He is like a
teacher who, seeing
a student doing
poorly, takes up a pencil and writes,
saying, “Do it like
this: A, B, C.” From
this one should not
foolishly think that
the teacher is learning his ABC’s.
Similarly, although
Lord Chaitanya
