Appearance of Gadadhara Pandita
Gadadhara Pandita is among the group known as the Pancha-tattva, consisting of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and four of His closest associates. Gadadhara Pandita spent most of his life in Jagannatha Puri worshiping the Tota-Gopinatha Deity, who is still worshiped in Puri. Gadadhara Pandita is considered an incarnation of Srimati Radharani, the eternal consort of Krishna.
