Fall is the time when Krishna.com’s annual property tax ($5200), insurance ($3150), and email newsletter service ($2145) bills are due, among others, totaling $10,495. We are supported by your donations and need your help to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant. Please give a donation.

A. Ishvara Puri

1400s–1500s

Ishvara Puri appeared in Kamarhatta, in what is now West Bengal. He was one of the foremost disciples of Madhavendra Puri, whom he humbly served during Madhavendra Puri's last days. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura writes that Ishvara Puri was the best of sannyasis. To honor Ishvara Puri, Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu accepted him as His spiritual master. Ishvara Puri wrote Krishna-lilamrita, “The Nectar of Krishna's Pastimes.”
