Making A “Case” for the Reconstitution of Srila Prabhupada’s “Mission
The Divinity of Sri Caitannya Mahaprabghu

Refutation of Objection 8.
Because there is no other record of Madhva’s life apart from ‘Sumadhva Vijaya’, what proof do we have that the writer did not exaggerate? When writing a kavya, the poet is prone to use dramatic license (alankara) to enhance the qualities of the principal personality that he glorifies. How can we be so certain that your Narayana Pandit-acarya did not follow this trait, while you at the same time are accusing us of such?
Many biographies such as Kaviraja Gosvami’s Chaitanya Caritamrta, Vrndavana Dasa Thakura’s Chaitanya Bhagavata, Locana Dasa Thakura’s Chaitanya Mangala, and Kavi Karnapura’s Chaitanya Candradaya were written about the life of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. While some accounts differ on some details of His Lilas, on the point of His divinity they are all unanimous.
