Jagadisa Pandita - Appearance

Date: 
Sun, 2014-01-12



Today is Dwadasi, the twelfth day of the moon. For those fasting for Ekadasi, the recommended time to break fast is between 6:19-9:54 a.m., local time.

Today is also the appearance day of Jagadisa Pandita, a prominent devotee of Lord Nityananda. Regarding Jagadisa Pandita, the Chaitanya-Charitamrita says:

"Jagadisa Pandita, the fifteenth branch of Lord Nityananda's followers, was the deliverer of the entire world. Devotional love of Krishna showered from him like torrents of rain."

He lived near Lord Chaitanya's house in Navadwip, and would cook special items for the Lord when He was not feeling well.
