Bhakta Kavi Gopala Krishna
Bhakta Kavi Gopala Krishna
Description
About the Book

Bhakta Kavi Gopala Krishna (1784-1862), a devotee of Lord Krishna and a keen reader of Chaitanya Charitamrita, belonged to the Vaishnava Cult. He was a great exponent of 'Odissi Sangita' (devotional song), which is well-known in every town and village of Orissa. The clear expression of his words reflects the softness and purity of his heart just as the pure and sweet river water in the autumn season reflects the clear blue sky. A pure Vaishnavite, Gopala Krishna always avoided any fame and name. So, he did not have nay desire to assemble his poems in book forms. He became famous as pandit, devotee and scholar. Except the allegorical types, all other varieties are exhibited in the writings of Gopala Krishna.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
