Vishvanatha

Vishvanatha Chakravarti Thakura appeared in 1662 in the village of Devagram, Bengal. He received initiation from Ramana Chakravarti, and his name after taking sannyasa was Hari Vallabha Goswami. Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura, a later acharya in the disciplic succession, writes: “To serve the feet of Narottama dasa Thakura was the only desire of Vishwanatha Chakravarti Thakura, who was the fourth acharya in disciplic succession from Narottama dasa.” Srila Vishwanatha Chakravarti Thakura wrote more than forty Sanskrit books, including commentaries on Bhagavad-gita, Srimad-Bhagavatam, and the writings of the six Goswamis of Vrindavana.
