This treatise was originally written in Bengali, in the year 1986, for the 500th anniversary of the advent of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the scheduled yet hidden incarnation for this age of Kali, as established in Srimad-Bhagavatam and other Vedic literatures. it was composed by Sri Srimad Bhaktivedanta Narayana Gosvami Maharaja (Srila Gurudeva), Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s illustrious personal associate, whose sole mission and most prominent speciality (vaiśisṭya) was to give clarity and emphasis to the specific, internal nature of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s all-compassionate mission in this world.
Srila Gurudeva exhibited many specialities in his presentation of Gaudiya Vaisnavism, the philosophical line of Sriman Mahaprabhu, which serve to direct the souls of this world to avail themselves of Sriman Mahaprabhu’s unprecedented mercy. Examples of this are his untiring glorification of the contribution of Srila Rūpa Gosvami, who was the first to reveal the truth of Sriman Mahaprabhu’s inner mission; his expert and sweet presentation of the successive specialities of exalted devotees, as presented by Srila Sanatana Gosvami in Sri Brhad-bhagavatamrtam; his enthusing the annual Vrajamandala parikrama by his extraordinary harikatha and by his deep and unflincing faith in the boon received by Sri Narada Muni from Sri Krsna Himself, that anyone who with faith visits Sri Krsna’s pastimes places in Vraja, touches the dust of those places and offers pranama, will surely develop vrajaprema in his heart; by his singing the speciality of the sacred parakiya-bhava of Vraja, and by his establishing the speciality of Mahaprabhu’s mood and pastimes in Navadvipa compared to His mood and pastimes in Sri Jagannatha Puri - to name just a few. In this way, Srila Gurudeva is an unfathomable ocean of transcendental specialities.
By his mercy, this sublime treasure, The Speciality of the Gift of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, has surfaced in our churning of that ocean. This is therefore Srila Gurudeva’s gift, also. With utmost reverence and care, we are now presenting it to Sri gaura-bhakta-vrnda, the most revered circle of Sri Gaurahari’s dear devotees.
