A Collection of Essays on Śrī Chaitanya
Steven J. Rosen (Satyarāja Dāsa)
“Steven J. Rosen’s latest contribution to the study of Chaitanya, Chaitanyology: A Collection of Essays on Śrī Chaitanya, follows in the wake of his lifelong and voluminous contribution to the field, appreciated by scholars and practitioners alike. Rosen, in his signature fashion, brings a scholarly voice to the life, philosophy and historical background of this consequential spiritual fi gure—a voice that contributes both to academic research in this fi eld, and to the intellectual fabric of practitioners’ understanding of their own canonical tradition.
“Drawing on obscure texts, original research, and the research of numerous scholars, Rosen presents an eminently readable and well researched volume of intriguing detail, documenting little known facts and important observations that are sure to not only allow readers entrance into Chaitanya and his world, but also help one in one’s own spiritual quest. Essential reading for both scholars of Indian religion and devotees of all persuasions.”
