A Note About this Edition

Śrīla Prabhupāda completed Teachings of Lord Caitanya in 1967, and his Bhaktivedanta Book Trust (then known as ISKCON Press) published it in 1968. In 1974 the BBT published an extensively revised editing with Sanskrit diacritical marks and selected verses from Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta, the source book for Teachings of Lord Caitanya.

For the present edition, the editors compared the two previous editions (the original manuscript is lost) and restored some of the flavor of the original. In addition, they found that, perhaps owing to Śrīla Prabhupāda’s heavily accented English, the uneven quality of his dictated tapes, or the difficult philosophical concepts in some passages of Teachings of Lord Caitanya, the original transcribers and editors had occasionally erred. These errors, constituting less than three percent of the total text, have now been corrected, so that an already perfect book has become even more perfect for its increased fidelity to Śrīla Prabhupāda’s original words and intended meaning.
