Disappearance of Krishnadas Kaviraja Goswami

Sun, 2015-10-25

Krishnadas Kaviraja Goswami (1600s-1700s) is the author of Chaitanya-charitamrita, the most authoritative book on Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s philosophy and later life. Kaviraja Goswami was a devotee of Krishna who lived in Katwa, a small town in the district of Burdwan, Bengal (India). After a family dispute about bhakti-yoga, devotional service to God, Nityananda Prabhu appeared to Krishnadas in a dream and told him to leave home and go to Vrindavan.

Although Krishnadas was very old, he started that very night for Vrindavan. While he was there, he met some of the Goswamis, principal disciples of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, who requested him to write down the teachings and final pastimes of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, which he did, in the form of the Chaitanya-charitamrita

His samadhi (shrine) stands on the bank of Radha-kunda, in Vrindavan, India.
