Srila Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura summarized Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu’s philosophy in ten fundamental principles (daça-müla) that describe all knowledge pertaining to sambandha (position of the Lord, His energies and the relationship between them), abhidheya (activities according to that knowledge) and prayojana (the ultimate goal of life that can be achieved by such activities). However, these ten principles were not invented by Bhaktivinoda Öhäkura. In enumerating them, he followed the previous äcäryas.
