Narottama Dasa Thakura

1600s–1700s

Narottama Dasa Thakura took initiation from Lokanatha Goswami and was a lifelong brahmachari (celibate). He organized the famous Kheturi festival, at which the conclusions of the six Goswamis of Vrndavana were systematized. This resulted in the establishment of a canonical doctrine for future generations of Gaudiya Vaishnavas. Narottama wrote many collections of devotional songs, such as Prarthana and Prema-bhakti-chandrika. His samadhi stands in the courtyard of the Radha-Gokulananda temple in Vrindavana.
