About the Author

In his second mangalacarana verse of Sri Hari-bhakti-vilasa, Sri Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, who is one of the Six Gosvami associates of Sri Krsna Caitanyadeva, has mentioned the name of Srila Prabodhananda as very dear to Lord Caitanyadeva and has identified himself as his disciple. In his Dig-darsini commentary on that verse, Srila Sanatana Gosvami has also described Prabodhananda as the spiritual master of Gopala Bhatta.

 

bhakter-vilasams cinute prabodha-

 

nandasya sisyo bhagavat-priyasya

 

gopala bhatta raghunatha-dasam

 

santosayan rupa sanatanau ca

“Gopala Bhatta, the disciple of Prabodhananda who is very dear to Sri Caitanyadeva, is compiling the book Sri Hari-bhakti-vilasa for the pleasure of Rupa, Sanatana and Raghunatha Dasa.”

In the concluding verse of his Sukha-bodhini commentary on Gopala-tapani Upanisad, Sri Jiva Gosvamipada has mentioned Srila Prabodhananda's commentary on Gopala-tapani Upanisad.

In his prayers to the Vaisnavas, Sri Devakinanda Dasa has mentioned the name of Prabodhananda as follows:

 

prabodhananda gosai vandiva yatane

 

ye karila mahaprabhura gunera varnane

“I offer my respectful obeisances to Prabodhananda who carefully described the transcendental qualities of Mahaprabhu.”

In his book Sri Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika (163) Sri Kavi-karnapura Gosvami has stated as follows:

 

tungavidya vraje yasit

 

sarva sastra visarada

 

sa prabodhananda yatir

 

gaurodgana sarasvati

“Tungavidya, who is one of the eight principal gopis of Vraja and who is very expert in all the scriptures, has now appeared as Prabodhananda in order to glorify Sri Gauranga."

There is no mention of Prabodhananda Sarasvati’s name in either Sri Caitanya-candrodaya-nataka and Sri Caitanya-carita Mahakavya of Kavi-karnapura, in Sri Caitanya-bhagavata of Vrndavana Dasa Thakura, or in Sri Caitanya-caritamrta of Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvamipada. In Sri Krsna-caitanya-caritamrta, or the Kadaca, of Murari Gupta there is no mention of Prabodhananda's name or activities.

Sri Harirama Vyasa, who was a companian of Hita Hari Vamsa, described the qualities of Prabodhananda in his book called Vyasa Vani as follows: “Prabodhananda is not an ordinary poet who described the transcendental pastimes of Radha Krsna. His descriptions of the loving pastimes of the divine young couple are most wonderful. One’s bondage for material existence is certainly destroyed by hearing these pastimes.”

It is found in the book Prema-vilasa by Nityananda dasa that when Mahaprabhu resided at the house of Trimalla Bhatta, who was a Vaisnava from Sri-sampradaya, at Sri Rangam during the four months of Caturmasya the entire Bhatta family became devotees of Radha Krsna by the mercy of Mahaprabhu. It is also stated therein that Mahaprabhu instructed Prabodhananda to send Gopala Bhatta to Vrndavana after the death of his parents.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
