Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

Jagadisa Pandita - Disppearance

Sat, 2014-01-04

Today is the disappearance day of Jagadisa Pandita, a prominent devotee of Lord Nityananda.

Jagadisa Pandita lived near Jagannatha Mishra, the father of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, in Sridhama Mayapur. Jagadisa Pandita assisted Mahaprabhu in spreading the sankirtana movement (congregational chanting of Krishna's name) in Jagannatha Puri.

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 Mahaprabhu's house in Navadwip, and would cook special items for Him when He was not feeling well.
