‘Bengal’ or more specifically, Nadia is the place where the philosophy of Gaudiya Vaishnavism was first concocted. Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu extracted the essential principles from the four bonafide Vaishnava sampradayas and blended them into His teachings. He then propagated His teachings widely throughout India, which are now being disseminated throughout the entire world, benefitting countless souls. He had commanded His disciples to unearth the holy pastime places of Radha and Krishna and propagate their unending glories. He had instructed His disciples to write books in order to firmly establish the authenticity of Gaudiya Vaishnavism. So ‘The Gaudiya Treasures of Bengal’ is a continuation of this same journey with the objective of distributing the treasure of Gaudiya Vaishnavism and fulfilling the desires of Sri Chaitanya. Hence the word ‘Bengal’ in ‘The Gaudiya Treasures of Bengal’ (Title of our website) does not confine itself to a mere geographical place but instead aspires to encompass all people and places of this world who have received the shelter and benefitted from the cooling shades of Lord Chaitanya and Nityananda’s causeless mercy – Nitai pada kamala koti chandra sushitala, ye chhayay jagata juraya
