Bringing the books to Gaudadesa

posted in: DB, English 0


The Vrindavana Gosvamis held a council and decided that Srinivasa, Narottama and Syamananda, should be sent to Gaudadesa to bring the books of the Gosvamis there and preach the teachings of Mahaprabhu as presented in that literature.

Therefore Jiva Gosvami called the three of them together and informed them of this decision. The three of them accepted that order with their bowed heads.

Thereafter, on an auspicious day, which was the 1504 of the Shaka era[1], Srila Jiva Gosvami sent them on their way with a large, nicely decorated container filled with scriptures.

However, during the journey, the books were stolen by the dacoit king Vira Hambira, descendant of the Malla dynasty, in Visnupura. Therefore Srinivasa Acarya remained behind to recover the books[2] while Narottama continued on towards the northern part of Bengal and Syamananda proceeded to Ambika Kalna.


[1] 1582-3 AD.

[2] The complete story will be told in the biography of Srinivasa Acarya.
