Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Baladeva Vidyabhushana


Baladeva Vidyabhusana (c. 1600–1768) appeared near Remuna, Orissa, and was also known as Govinda dasa. At a very young age he mastered Sanskrit, grammar, poetry, and logic, and he took initiation and sannyasa in the disciplic succession of Madhvacharya. Later he converted to Gaudiya Vaishnavism and served as an assistant to the elderly Vishvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, who taught him the Srimad-Bhagavatam. He became a great scholar, defeated many scholars and wrote more than twenty-four books, such as the Govinda-bhasya commentary on the Vedanta-sutra.
