Five hundred years ago, as the Renaissance flourished in Europe, the revolutionary spiritual movement of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was challenging the assumptions of materialistic society in India. As both a recluse and frontline preacher of that sacred mission, Srila Haridasa Thakura (a Muslim by birth) was one of the first Vaisnavas to bear the brunt of the sometimes violent reaction of an entrenched Hindu and Muslim society. This book offers an insight into the exceptional life, divine qualities, spiritual ecstasies and secret identity of Srila Haridasa Thakura - the saint whom Lord Caitanya Himself awarded the title of Namacarya: one who perfectly teaches, by example, the chanting of the holy names of God.
