Kannada edition of classic released

Rastrakavi G S Rudrappa while speaking on the occasion said that the Bhakti movements which had spread across the country were instrumental in bringing about a major transformation among people. It is now time to introspect on the teachings of these movements and implement them in our lives, he added.

Sri Chaitanya Charitamrita was written by Srila Krishna Dasa Kaviraja Goswami in Bengali, during the early 15th century.  It contains over 18,000 verses. The epic narrates the biography of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, a great saint, mystic and social reformer who was founder of a ‘great movement’ which spread its influence all over India.

 The Kannada translation of the work has been done by a team of scholars including Govind Murthy Desai, Chiranjeevi, Prof M R Kamala, M K Gopinath, Keshava Malagi and Eshwara Chandra.
