Chaitanya

Chaitanya

( 1486 – 1553 )

Chaitanya was a legendary bhakta and master of God-intoxication,
whose life story reads like the play and sport of Krishna (and some believe
him to be the re-incarnation). For the last twelve years of his life, he
is said to have lived in perpetual devotional ecstasy or “Divine Madness”
(“divyaunmada”).

A tall, muscular man, he considered himself the bride
of Krishna. Chaitanya demonstrated in his own life how the dry ritualism
of his brahmanical peers could be turned into true worship. Lost in God,
he would dance, often in public, and with his entranced dance attract others
into God-Communion.
