<h4>Atharva Veda, third khanda, Brahma-vibhaga </h4>

"Towards the end of the period between four-thousand to five thousand years in

Kali-yuga, I will descend on the earth as Gauranga, a golden-complexioned saintly

brahmana in a place by the Ganges' shore and later become the crest-jewel of all

sannyasis, exhibiting all My transcendental qualities including supreme renunciation

and complete detachment from material desires. In the form of Lord Gauranga, I will

display all the thirty-two bodily symptoms of a great personality with my arms

extending to my knees. I will become my own devotee, very advanced in bhakti-yoga

and teach the worship of Lord Krsna (Myself) by the chanting of My own holy names

and relishing the mellows of My own devotional service. At that time only My most

confidential devotees will be able to understand Me."

















<h3>Caitanya Upanisad of Atharva Veda

In that place [where Sri Caitanya appears] is a wonderful city like an eight-petal

lotus flower.

tasmin yas tv 'antarakaso


hy antar-dvipah sa ucyate






In the middle of that lotus-city is a place called Mayapura, and in the middle of

Mayapura is a place called Antardvipa. That place is the home of Lord Caitanya, the

Supreme Personality of Godhead.


(commentary of Bhaktivinoda Thakura)














<h4>Krsna Upanisad 2.6</h4>


sa eva bhagavan yuge turiye 'pi brahma-kule


jayamanah sarva upanisadah uddidirsuh


sarvani dharma-astrani vistarayisnuh sarvan


api janan santarayisnuh sarvan api vaisnavan


dharman vijrimbhayan sarvan api pasandan nicakhana






In the Kali-yuga, Supreme Lord will appear in a brahmana's family. He will

teach the message of the Upanisads and the dharma-sastras. He will defeat the atheists

and offenders and He will establish the truth of Vaisnava-dharma.












<h4>Mundaka Upanisad 3.1.3 of Atharva Veda</h4>



yada pasyah pasyate rukma-varnam


kartaram isam purusam brahma-yonim






One who sees that golden-colored Personality of Godhead, the Supreme Lord,

the supreme actor, who is the source of the Supreme Brahman, is liberated.












<h4>Purusa-bodhini Upanisad of Atharva Veda</h4>




saptame gaura-varna-visnor ity


anena sva-saktya caikyam etya


prantepratar avatirya saha


svaih sva-manum siksayati






In the seventh manvantara, in the beginning of the Kali-yuga, the Supreme

Personality of Godhead accompanied by His own associates, will descend in a golden

form to the earth. He will teach the chanting of His own holy names.

mahan prabhur vai purusah


sattvasyaisa pravartakah


sunirmalam imam praptim


isano jyotir avyayah








The Supreme Personality of Godhead is Mahaprabhu [Lord Caitanya], who

disseminates transcendental enlightenment. Just to be in touch with Him is to be in

contact with the indestructible brahmajyoti.


















<h4>Srimad-Bhagavatam 7.9.38</h4>




ittham nr-tiryag-rsi-deva jhasavatarair


lokan vibhavayasi hamsi jagat pratipan


dharmam maha-purusa pasi yuganuvrttam


channah kalau yad abhavas tri-yugo 'tha sa tvam






In this way, my Lord, You appear in various incarnations as a human being, an

animal, a great saint, a demigod, a fish or a tortoise, thus maintaining the entire

creation in different planetary systems and killing the demoniac principles. According

to the age, O my Lord, You protect the principles of religion. In the age of Kali,

however, You do not assert Yourself as the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and

therefore You are known as Triyuga, or the Lord who appears in three yugas.,


{Prahlada Maharaja speaks to Lord Nrsimhadeva}












<h4>Srimad-Bhagavatam 10.8.13</h4>




asan varnas trayo hy asya


grhnato 'nuyugam tanuh


suklo raktas tatha pita


idanim krsnatam gatah






This boy [Krsna] has three other colors - white, red and yellow - as He appears in

different ages. Now He has appeared in a transcendental blackish color.


{Gargamuni speaks to Nanda Maharaja}












<h4>Srimad-Bhagavatam 11.5.32</h4>




krsna-varnam tvisakrsnam




yajnaih sankirtana-prayair


yajanti hi su-medhasah






In the age of Kali, intelligent persons perform congregational chanting to

worship the incarnation of Godhead who constantly sings the name of Krsna.

Although His complexion is not blackish, He is Krsna Himself. He is accompanied by

His associates, servants, weapons and confidential companions.


{Karabhajana Muni speaks to King Nimi}












<h4>Srimad-Bhagavatam 11.5.33</h4>




dhyeyam sada paribhava-ghnam abhista-doham


tirthaspadam siva-virinci-nutam saranyam


bhrtyarti-ham pranata-pala bhavabdhi-potam


vande maha-purusa te caranaravindam






My dear Lord, You are the Maha-purusa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead,

and I worship Your lotus feet, which are the only eternal object of meditation. Those

feet destroy the embarrassing conditions of material life and freely award the greatest

desire of the soul, the attainment of pure love of Godhead. My dear Lord, Your lotus

feet are the shelter of all holy places and of all saintly authorities in the line of

devotional service and are honored by powerful demigods like Lord Siva and Lord

Brahma. My Lord, You are so kind that You willingly protect all those who simply

bow down to You with respect, and thus You mercifully relieve all the distress of

Your servants. In conclusion, my Lord, Your lotus feet are actually the suitable boat

for crossing over the ocean of birth and death, and therefore even Lord Brahma and

Lord Siva seek shelter at Your lotus feet.












<h4>Srimad-Bhagavatam 11.5.34</h4>




tyaktva su-dustyaja-surepsita-rajya-laksmim


dharmistha arya-vacasa yad agad aranyam


maya-mrgam dayitayepsitam anvadhavad


vande maha-purusa te caranaravindam






O Mahapurusa, I worship Your lotus feet. You gave up the association of the

goddess of fortune and all her opulence, which is most difficult to renounce and is

hankered after by even the great demigods. Being the most faithful follower of the

path of religion, You thus left for the forest in obedience to a brahmana's curse. Out of

sheer mercifulness You chased after the fallen conditioned souls, who are always in

pursuit of the false enjoyment of illusion, and at the same time engaged in searching

out Your own desired object, Lord Syamasundara.

sannyasa-krc chamah santo








In His early pastimes He appears as a householder with a golden complexion.

His limbs are beautiful, and His body, smeared with the pulp of sandalwood, seems

like molten gold. In His later pastimes He accepts the sannyasa order, and He is

equipoised and peaceful. He is the highest abode of peace and devotion, for He

silences the impersonalist nondevotees.

auspicious and blissful pastimes, a form that brings bliss to the heart, a form that

unites Our two natures.'




Hearing His beloved's words, which were filled with joy and love, Lord Krsna

passionately embraced Her. Then by the touch of His inconceivable potency Their

two forms joined and became one, a single form endowed with Sri Radha's divine

love and glorious splendor. In a dream Lord Krsna showed all this to Sri Radha.

In the first sandhya of Kali-yuga, on the earth, by the beautiful shore of the

Ganges, the Lord will appear in His eternal golden form.

















**Other direct references are found in the Visvasara tantra, Kularnava tantra,

Brahma-rahasya, and Visnu-yamala. Besides these there are complete chapters about

Sri Caitanya's incarnation in the Vayu Purana and Bhavisya Purana, which are too

long to quote here. Also there is a text by the name Caitanya Upanisad within the

Atharva Veda, which explains the Lord's incarnation in Kali-yuga. I have not cited it

here, as it was rediscovered in recent times, so some people will reject its authenticity,

or at least its value as evidence.




Sri Caitanya's incarnation was a hidden incarnation, thus He buried references to

His appearance deep within the ocean of Vedic texts. His desire was that His disguise

would not be betrayed, so He made sure these references would remain hidden until

after His incarnation was complete. These texts were always present, but by the

inconceivable yoga-maya of the Lord, He covered His true identity even from the

Vedic scholars and panditas. Only the pure devotees understood His actual identity.
