Baladeva Vidyabhushana


Baladeva Vidyabhusana (c. 1600–1768) appeared near Remuna, Orissa, and was also known as Govinda dasa. At a very young age he mastered Sanskrit, grammar, poetry, and logic, and he took initiation and sannyasa in the disciplic succession of Madhvacharya. Later he converted to Gaudiya Vaishnavism and served as an assistant to the elderly Vishvanatha Cakravarti Thakura, who taught him the Srimad-Bhagavatam. He became a great scholar, defeated many scholars and wrote more than twenty-four books, such as the Govinda-bhasya commentary on the Vedanta-sutra.
