Srila Jagannatha Dasa Babaji -- Disappearance

Date: 
Sun, 2014-03-02


Jagannatha dasa Babaji Maharaja (1776-1894), the spiritual master of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, confirmed Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura's discovery of the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Upon arriving at the birthplace, Jagannatha dasa Babaji Maharaja, though blind and crippled, leaped high into the air and began chanting the names of Krishna and dancing.

Jagannatha dasa Babaji is memorialized by all Vaishnavas thus:

gauravirbhava-bhumes tvam
nirdeshta saj-jana-priyah
vaishnava–sarvabhaumah
shri–jagannathaya te namaha

"I offer my respectful obeisances to Jagannatha dasa Babaji, who is respectful to the entire community of devotees and who discovered the place where Lord Chaitanya appeared."
