Pundarika Vidyanidhi was a disciple of Madhavendra Puri and was the guru of Sri Gadadhara Pandita. Pundarika Vidyanidhi was sometimes misunderstood to be too much attached to material pleasures, but just by hearing the recitation of one verse of the Srimad-Bhagavatam he would enter into a trance. In Krishna's pastimes he was Vrishabhanu, the father of Srimati Radharani.

Pictured at right is a painting of Pundarika Vidyanidhi being slapped by Lord Jagannath and Lord Baladeva in a dream.
