Govinda Ghosh

from Gaudiya Vaishnava Samadhis in Vrindavan

Sri Govinda Ghosh was known for his sweet kirtans at the annual Jagannatha Ratha-Yatra festival. He and his two brothers, Vasudeva and Madhava, are eternal associates of Sri Chaitanya and Sri Nityananda. The Lord would immediately begin dancing whenever the Ghosh brothers would sing. The Ghosh brothers preached throughout their lives with music and song.

Since he had no children, Govinda wondered who would perform his funeral rites. Sri Gopinatha, Govinda Ghosh's Deity, appeared in a dream promising that He Himself would do everything. Still today, the Gopinatha Deity arranges for the tirobhava mahotsava (disappearance day festival) of His pure devotee, Govinda Ghosh.
As Kalavati-sakhi, Govinda Ghosh sings sweetly for Radha-Govindaji in Goloka Vrndavana. His samadhi is in the 64 Samadhis Area.
