Chaitanya said, worship God through senses

ChaitanyaSwami Vivekananda says, “Chaitanya represented the mad love of the Gopis. Himself a Brahmin, born of one of the most rationalistic families of the day, himself a professor of logic fighting and gaining a word-victory — for, this he had learnt from his childhood as the highest ideal of life and yet through the mercy of some sage the whole life of that man became changed; he gave up his fight, his quarrels, his professorship of logic and became one of the greatest teachers of Bhakti the world has ever known — mad Chaitanya. His Bhakti rolled over the whole land of Bengal, bringing solace to everyone. His love knew no bounds.
“The saint or the sinner, the Hindu or the Mohammedan, the pure or the impure, the prostitute, the streetwalker — all had a share in his love, all had a share in his mercy: and even to the present day, although greatly degenerated, as everything does become in time, his sect is the refuge of the poor, of the downtrodden, of the outcast, of the weak, of those who have been rejected by all society. But at the same time I must remark for truth’s sake that we find this: In the philosophic sects we find wonderful liberalisms.

“Vaishnavism says, ‘it is all right — this tremendous love for father, for mother, for brother, husband, or child! It is all right, if only you will think that Krishna is the child, and when you give him food, that you are feeding Krishna!’ This was the cry of Chaitanya, ‘Worship God through the senses’, as against the Vedantic cry, ‘Control the senses! Suppress the senses!’”

Quotes of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu:
The Vedic literatures composed by the Mahamuni Vyasadeva are evidence of all spiritual existence. Only through these revealed scriptures can all conditioned souls attain knowledge.
One who does not accept the transcendental form of the Lord is certainly an agnostic. Such a person should be neither seen nor touched. Indeed, he is subject to be punished by Yamaraja.
The essence of all religious principles in the age of Kali is chanting of the holy names of the lord. One cannot be delivered by following any other religious principles.
The word Brahman indicates the complete Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is Sri Krishna.
In Vedic literature Krishna is the central point of attraction and His service is our activity. To attain the platform of love of Krishna is life’s ultimate goal. Therefore Krishna, Krishna’s service and love of Krishna are the three great riches of life.
The conditioned soul cannot revive his Krishna consciousness by his own effort but out of causeless mercy.
Regardless of time or place, one who chants the holy name, even while eating or sleeping, attains all perfection.
Be more humble than a blade of grass, more tolerant than a tree, always offering respect onto others and never expecting any in return.

The 532nd birth anniversary of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was observed on February 18.
