Lord Sri Caitanya preached as one of the Vaisnava acaryas like Ramanujacarya, and His mission was to establish the same theory of deliverance as was propounded by Sri Krishna Himself in the Bhagavad-gita. Caitanya Mahāprabhu's mission was to distribute Kṛṣṇa-prema (love of God), and the mission that he established teaches one on how to love God (which, according to scriptures, is the highest perfection). He entrusted His missionary work to His devotees and assured them of His protection against the onslaught of material affection. The path of spiritual life is stated in the Vedas to be like 'the edge of a sharpened razor'. A little inattentiveness may at once create havoc and bloodshed, but one who is a completely surrendered soul, always seeking protection from the Lord in the discharge of his entrusted duties, has no fear of falling into material contamination.
