Chaitanya Mahaprabhu-Adi Shankaracharya

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is regarded as the greatest saint of India and Adi Shankaracharya is regarded as the greatest philosopher of India.

Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was the master of Bhakti-Yog (Devotional-Yog) while Adi Shankaracharya was the master of Jnana-Yog/Gyaan-Yog (Knowledge-Yog).

  • Chaitanya Mahaprabhu propounded the philosophy of Achintya-Bheda-Abheda (अचिन्त्यभेदाभेद) meaning “inconceivable one-ness and difference” between devotee and God.
  • Adi Shankaracharya propounded the philosophy of Advaita Vedanta which teaches non-dualism between devotee and God.
  • Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was the greatest contributor to Bhakti and Sankirtan Movement in India while Adi Shankaracharya who established the four mathas (monastries) in four corners of the vast Indian subcontinent was responsible for the cultural integration of India.
  • Adi Shankara brought together the different Sampradayas/sects existing and fighting among each other for the supremacy of their respective deities during those times.
  • Chaitanya Mahaprabhu made God and Godly realization accessible to the common man of India through his simple methods of God-realization.

These two were the greatest of Mahapurushas (Masters) produced by Mother India.
