Stamp Information : CHAITANYA MAHAPRABHU Lord Sri Chaitanya MAhaprabhu was born in Sridhama Mayapura, Navadvipa in BEngal, on the Phalguni purnima of the year 1486. Born as the son of a learned brahmana, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was known as Nimai Pandit in his youth due to his unrivalled mastery of the Sanskrit Language and the Vedic literature. There was opposition to the movwmwnt of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. On the one hand many so-called Hindus objected to the fact that he engaged everyone in chanting the holy name of the Lord without discrimination of caste, religion or social position; on the other hand, the Mohammedans felt that his processions were a threat to their social and political denomination. Inspite of all such obstacles, however, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu established the fact that there is a universal religion for developing love for the one Supreme Lord who is the supreme controller of everyone and everything. The advent of Chaitanya is marked as the beginning of a new era in Bengal. The birth of the cult and the spirit of the REnaissance, almost synchronized with his arrival. The growth of vernacular literature in Bengal got a new fillip with his appearance. Beyond everything, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was a great lower of humanity. He was a friend of the poor and the wretched. His heart was always full of love and sympathy for them. As a great solac to the suffering soul and a healer to the bereaved, he proved himself strongly anti-communal and a life-long denouncer of untouchability and casteism. The Department of Posts is happy to issue a commemorative stamp on the great Saint Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's 500th birthday.
