"The object of this little book is to bring the holy life of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and his precepts to the notice of the educated and religious people. Most of the books treating on these subjects have hitherto been printed in Bengali character. Hence the life and precepts of Chaitanya have scarcely passed beyond the boundaries of Bengal."
(Kedaranath Dutt Bhaktivinoda, 1896)
Note: Srila Prabhupada considered this book and the timing of its arrival in the West significant.
