Sri Caitanya Bhagavata - narration
The Sri Caitanya Bhagavata of Srila Vrndavana dasa Thakura is a central work of Gaudiya Vaisnavism wherein the life and teaching of Sri Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu are recorded.
To chronicle the activities of an incarnation of the Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna, demands the greatest of authors, and Srila Vrndavana dasa Thakura displays herein the mastery that confirms the sastric statements that he is no less than an incarnation of Srila Vedavyasa, the compiler of the Vedas. The text details Chaitanya's position as a combined Avatar of both Radha and Krishna within the belief of his close associates and followers. The writing of Chaitanya Bhagavata was commissioned by Nityananda, who was the guru of Vrindavana Dasa Thakura and close friend of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu.
