Every year in celebration of Sri Gaura Purnima, the appearance day of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the book distribution team at Bhaktivedanta Manor make a special effort to distribute sets of Sri Caitanya Caritamrita. Sri Caitanya-caritamrita is the main work on the life and teachings about Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Srila Prabhupada miraculously translated the entire Sri Caitanya Caritamrita with its 11,519 Bengali verses into English together with elaborate purports within a period of only 18 months. These books are a rare gift to the world and Srila Prabhupada expressed that it was his desire that every respectable home have a full set.
A valiant attempt was made by book distributers to try to achieve a very high target. With many devotees involved a total of 192 sets were distributed. A highlight of the effort was the Children’s Sankirtan team who distributed 25 sets. This was the first time that the children have attempted to distribute Sri Caitanya Caritamrita sets and their achievement is simply stunning.
If you are someone who desires to have a full set but may not have the means to purchase, or you know anyone who is in this position please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and a sponsored set can be arranged to be gifted. The same applies to any institutions you may know. The sets are available in: English, Bengali, Hindi, Tamil, Telegu and Gujarati.
