Sri Chaitanya Caritamrita is a jewel mine, a treasure house of all kinds of wealth, there are stories there are descriptions of the pastimes of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, there are blessings and benedictions galore for all of us who hear them with faith and love and devotion and conviction but if ever we were wondering why Krsnadas has Kaviraj why he is Kaviraj there’s that too and when I look at the beautiful within the Chaitanya Caritamrita there is poetry, he is the king of poets there is such poetry embedded in these lines that Srila Prabhupada stopped everything to painstakingly translate.
About Acyuta Gopi Devi Dasi
For as long as I can remember, Kirtan or the Bhakti Yoga practice of mantra meditation through music has been the focus of my life. The art of writing soon took up residence in the spaces of my heart not occupied by music, and the transformative power of prayer soon followed suit.
With the blessings of my family and my teachers, I have had the amazing fortune to travel the world singing, writing, and witnessing those heart transformations that I love so much, first hand. I can honestly say that conducting workshops, classes and seminars on kirtan has absolutely changed my life for the better, and I can’t think of a better way to live.
Now along with my family, I’ve focused my efforts on the NYC community and pouring my heart into the beautiful practices of Kirtan, writing, and the incredibly transformative tradition of Bhakti Yoga.
