Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

A. Raghunatha Dasa Goswami


Raghunatha Dasa Goswami (1495–1571) was the only son of a wealthy landowner. At the age of fifteen, however, he met Lord Chaitanya and later became one of the six Goswamis of Vrindavana who were Lord Chaitanya's direct followers. Raghunatha Dasa led a most austere life of pure devotion. He was the very emblem of renunciation. He wrote the three books Stavavali, Muktacharita, and Dana-charita. He was known as the prayojana acharya, he who by example teaches life's ultimate goal. His samadhi stands on the bank of Radha-kunda, Vrindavana.
