Appearance of Vamsivadana Thakura & Shyamananda Prabhu

Sat, 2015-04-04

Shyamananda Prabhu
Shyamananda Prabhu, shown in the drawing at left, was a disciple of Hridaya Chaitanya. Shyamananda established the now famous temple of Sri Radha-Shyamasundara in Vrindavan, India. On the order of his spiritual master, Shyamananda, along with his foremost disciple, Rasikananda Prabhu, spread the worship and service of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu throughout Orissa, a state in southeastern India.

Vamsivadana Thakura
Vamsivadana Thakura wrote many sweet poems expressing his devotion to Krishna. The day he appeared, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and Sri Advaita Prabhu were staying in his home in Bengal. After the disappearance of Srimati Vishnupriya Devi, he worshiped her deities in Navadvipa.
(Pictured at right is the deity worshiped by Vishnupriya Devi and later Vamsivadana Thakura.)
