Deities of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead (center figure), and His associates grace the altar of the new Krsna temple in Laguna Beach, California. The Supreme Lord, Sri Krsna, descended in West Bengal five hundred years ago as Sri Caitanya to teach the chanting of Hare Krsna as the best method for reviving love for God in the present age. Advaita Acarya (far left) and Lord Nityananda (second from left), assisted Sri Caitanya in His mission . Sri Gadadhara (on Sri Caitanya’s right) and Sri Srivasa (far right) personified loving devotion to Krsna . The pictures at the bottom of the altar show several generations of spiritual masters who have preserved Sri Caitanya’s teachings and taught them to the world.
