Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji appeared in the 1830s. He left married life after his wife's death and moved to Vrindavana, where he stayed for more than thirty years. In Vrindavana he used to wander through the forests and chant 2,000,000 names of Krishna every day. Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji Maharaja was the emblem of renunciation and humility. He would beg a little food from a few houses and carry with him only two books, written by Narottama Dasa Thakura. Srila Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji had no desire to make disciples; however, seeing the true humility and deep spiritual attachment of the son of Bhaktivinoda Thakura, he accepted that son, Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Thakura, as his only disciple. Srila Gaurakishora Dasa Babaji departed the world in 1915.
