Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the most merciful Incarnation

Prabhupada, Mayapur, March 28, 1975: […] Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is the most merciful incarnation to bestow upon us Krishna-prema. Srila Rupa Gosvami understood it, Srila Sarvabhauma Bhattacarya understood it, and we should take their viewpoint of view, what they have studied about Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
So Srila Rupa Gosvami says… In the beginning Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu was appreciated by Srila Rupa Gosvami as maha-vadanyavatara. There are many incarnations of Krishna, kesava dhrta-mina-sarira jaya jagadisa hare, kesava dhrta-nrsimha-rupa jaya jagadisa…, many incarnations.

But this incarnation, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, is anarpita-carim cirat. The mercy of this incarnation is unlimited. It was never given before. That is Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s mercy. He distributed the most confidential part of love of Godhead.
Although we are living in this fallen age, Kali-yuga, but He is giving the topmost platform of loving Krishna. Anarpita-carim cirat. Therefore He is supposed to be the most munificent incarnation. Namo maha-vadanyaya Krishna-prema-pradaya te [Madhya 19.53]. He is giving directly Krishna-prema.
