Jagadisa Pandita - Disppearance

Date: 
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.
