Disappearance of Bhugarbha Goswami & Kasisvara Pandita

Date: 
Thu, 2014-11-06


Bhugarbha Goswami, along with his intimate friend Lokanatha Goswami, located lost sacred places in Vrindavan by the order of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. To avoid material distractions, Bhugarbha Goswami would perform his worship to Krishna in a cave. Because of this, he received the name Bhugarabha (bhu means "earth," garbha means "cave" or "hidden place").


Kasisvara Pandit served as Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's bodyguard in Jagannatha Puri. Another of his services was to distribute prasadam after kirtan.

Pictured are Bhugarbha Goswami's samadhi (shrine) in the courtyard of the Radha-Damodara temple in Vrindavan, India, and Kasisvara Pandita's Deity of Gaura-Govinda.
