I knows the CSLA.Net for windows, I've used CSLA.Net any my many Business Web Application, 

But now I would like to use CSLA.Net (CSLA Light) for Silverlight Business Application.

But I could not fine any example or video or source that explain me with the ALL CRUD Database Operation, 

So if any video, or small example, that explain me give me link or source,,,,

There are numerous samples in the Samples download from

The best sample in the CSLA 4 version 4.1 release is probably the \Net\cs\SimpleNTier sample because it shows how to use the same business layer between WPF, Silverlight, WP7, and ASP.NET MVC. Also the \Silverlight\cs\SimpleApp and CslaMvvmSl samples are simple and easy to understand.

You can also purchase the CSLA .NET for Silverlight video series.

And the CSLA 4 MVVM video series

They both cover building Silverlight applications using CSLA .NET (versions 3.6-3.8 and 4.0)

On top of the videos,  I'd also recommend taking a look at the CodeSmith Generator CSLA templates which will allow you to generate CSLA Silverlight code and examine and play around with it against your own database schema (something you are familiar with). I work for CodeSmith and I found that while creating these templates they really helped me and other discover the in's and outs of CSLA. There is also a Silverlight PetShop Sample application located here.
