This is the official website of Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Vijñāna Bhāratī Gosvāmī Mahārāja, who founded the mission - Viśuddha Caitanya-vāṇī Pracāra Kendra - as an offering to his guru-varga. This website is maintained by Śrīla Mahārāja's authorized representatives.
To preserve, protect and propagate the transcendental teachings and conduct of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu, received through the supremely pure svarūpa-rūpānugā-bhāgavata paramparā (as preached during the nineteenth century renaissance of Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavism by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Gosvāmī Ṭhākura and his dear associates) under the auspices of the most revered ācārya, Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Vijñāna Bhāratī Gosvāmī Mahārāja.
Viśuddha Caitanya-vāṇī Pracāra Kendra strives to propagate realizations of Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Vijñāna Bhāratī Gosvāmī Mahārāja, and select predecessor ācāryas who inspired him, in the form of literature and audio & video mediums.
What is 'Viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī'?
Viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī is the fully blossomed form of amnāya-vāṇī, or transcendental teachings received through the supremely pure guru-paramparā via the medium of kīrtana. Through the process of śravaṇa (hearing), it eventually seats itself in the heart of the sat-siśya (worthy disciple). The antaraṅga-parikaras (intimate associates) of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu—devotees like Śrīla Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī, Śrī Rāya Rāmānanda, Śrīla Rūpa Gosvāmī, Śrīla Sanātāna Gosvāmī, Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī, Śrīla Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī, Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura and, in the modern era, Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura, Śrīla Prabhupāda Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura, Śrī Śrīmad Bhakti Dayita Mādhava Gosvāmī Mahārāja and other disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda—are the protectors of this viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī. Just as Śrīmān Mahāprabhu remains eternally surrounded by these antaraṅga-parikaras, His vāṇī is intrinsically linked with their vāṇī. Therefore, the term viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī is defined as the embodiment of the teachings and conduct of not only Śrīmān Mahāprabhu, but of all His associates, as well.
The sole objective of the pure followers of viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī is to attain unalloyed kṛṣṇa-prema, present in the hearts of the vraja- gopīs, who fearlessly gave their foot dust to Śrī Kṛṣṇa in order to relieve His headache.
Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu appeared in this world to distribute this very prema, which had not been given in an extremely long time and is without even the slightest tinge of ātmedriya-prīti-vāñca (the desire to please one’s own senses). This viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī is the wealth of Goloka Vṛndāvana, and its fortunate recipients hanker only to fulfill the innermost heartfelt desires of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, without the slightest concern for consequence. Indeed, for the service of Śrī Kṛṣṇa, they are unafraid of even permanent residence in hell, and they thoroughly reject even the apprehension shown by Śrī Govinda Prabhu, the personal servant of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu who, out of fear of offending Śrīman Mahāprabhu in the pursuit of His service, once laid a cloth over the Lord before stepping over Him.
Due to the influence of Kali-yuga, many sense enjoyers and unqualified individuals who possess a disregard for scriptural evidence have, from time to time, attempted to conceal and distort the true form of viśuddha caitanya- vāṇī for their personal gain. Śrīla Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura states in the śruti-phala of Jaiva-dharma:
pṛthivīte ĵata kathā dharma-nāme cale bhāgavata kahe saba paripūrṇa chale
All the philosophies in this world that are celebrated as dharma have been condemned as utterly deceptive by Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.
Because of the prominence of such fraudulent ideologies in the world today, we feel ourselves forced to present this Viśuddha Caitanya-vāṇī at this most opportune time, when many so-called followers of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu are preaching chala-dharma in the name of Gauḍīya Vaiṣṇavism. Our aim is to preserve the true form of viśuddha caitanya-vāṇī to the best of our ability.
The visual identity of Viśuddha Caitanya-vāṇī comprises of a symbol (blooming lotus) and a word-mark (Visuddha Caitanya-vani). The blooming lotus symbol is formed by an open book, placed at three different angles.
Lotus is associated with supreme purity (viśuddha), blooming of consciousness and benedictions. An open book also represents pure vāṇī (transcendental teachings received from supremely pure svarūpa-rūpānuga-bhāgavata paramparā).
The lotus formed by the combination of books signifies diverse perspectives of scriptures and ācāryas, ultimately unifying harmoniously as the embodiment of the teachings of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu and His dear associates.
The dark reddish-brown colour signifies spiritual warmth, gravity, maturity and solidarity. The golden accent signifies supreme wealth (unalloyed kṛṣṇa-prema) and compassion of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
