Sri Caitanya-sikshamrita is a philosophical work by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura which is meant to show exactly how the teachings of Lord Caitanya are to be applied in the modern world.

This includes the perfectly non-envious bridging of the gap between all the world’s religions.

These teachings, based on Lord Chaitanya’s instructions to Rupa and Sanatana Goswamis as found in the Chaitanya-charitamrita, are just like a shower of pure nectar, and therefore the book is divided into 8 “showers”, and each of these is sub-divided into “downpours”.

The 8 “showers” are:

1. Ascertainment of the Topmost Religion;

2. Secondary Duties, or Religious Activities;

3. Primary Duties, or Regulative Devotional Service;

4. Discussions on Spontaneous Devotional Service;

5. Discussions on Ecstatic Devotional Service;

6. Discussions on Devotional Service in Pure Love of God;

7. Discussions on Transcendental Mellow;

8. Conclusion.

A quote from the book:

“There are countless philosophies, which [although attempting to reach the truth] are all incomplete and mutually conflicting, due to their origin in bewilderment.

All these philosophies find their perfection in Krishnabhakti.

I begin this book by offering my respects to Shi Krsna Chaitanya, the bestower of Krsna bhakti.”

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."

    The book has been suggested to me by Gaudiya math bardhaman mithepukur. I brought it last week from Mayapur. Another gem of a book by HDH bhakti vinod thakur is JAIVA DHARMA. brought this too. Hasn’t started yet as I have other Srila Prabhupada books to complete. But this too is the most meaningful and most sought to understand goal of all jiva tatta for reaching the past of enlightenment and going back to godhead
