Here is a nice definition of the identity of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and a nice prayer as well. These two verses are originally from Stava-mala (Shri Caitanyastaka) by Srila Rupa Goswami and quoted in Caitanya Caritamrita, Adi 4.51 & 52:
“Lord Caitanya is the shelter of the demigods, the goal of the Upanishads, the be-all and end-all of the great sages, the beautiful shelter of His devotees, and the essence of the love of the lotus-eyed gopis. Will He again be the object of my vision?”
“Lord Krishna desired to taste the limitless nectarean mellows of the love of one of His multitude of loving damsels [Shri Radha], and so He has assumed the form of Lord Caitanya. He has tasted that love while hiding His own dark complexion with Her effulgent yellow color. May that Lord Caitanya confer upon us His grace.”
