Sri Pundarika Vidyanidhi

54. According to their individual sentiments of ecstatic love for Lord Krishna, the various eternal devotees of the Lord assumed various roles in the Lord’s pastimes in Vraja.




  1. When He was afflicted by the feelings of Radharani’s intense love in separation from Lord Krishna, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu would address Pundarika Vidyanidhi using the word “father”.


56/57. Lord Caitanya was very pleased with Pundarika Vidyanidhi, and the He would address him by the name Premanidhi.

Because Pundarika Vidyanidhi was a direct disciple of Madhavendra Puri, the Lord would treat him with great respect, as if he were the Lord’s own spiritual master.

Maharaja Vrisabhanu also appeared as Sri Madhava Misra.

Ratnavati Devi, Pundarika Vidyanidhi’s wife, is considered by the learned devotees to be the incarnation of Kirtida Devi, the wife of Maharaja Vrsabhanu.
