Anaka Dundubhi (Vasudeva)

posted in: DB, English, Kadacha ENG 0

Sri Nanda Maharaja’s friend is called Vasudeva because he is radiant with piety, jewels and wealth, which are all denoted by the word vasu.

Visuddha sattva-guna, or the transcendental platform of pure existence, is also called vasudeva, and according to this meaning his name is Vasudeva because he is endowed with this visuddha sattva-guna. He is a partial manifestation of a Vasu called Drona and is also well known by the name Anaka Dundubhi[1].

A description of these names is found in the Mathura-mahatmya of the Garuda Purana. The renowned Sri Vrisabhanu Maharaja of Vraja is Sri Vasudeva Maharaja’s most dear friend.
