Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami

Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami appeared in this world near Katwa, West Bengal, but he soon left for Vrindavana. He took initiation from Raghunatha Dasa Goswami, and because of his Govinda-lilamrita, a poetic masterpiece, Srila Jiva Goswami gave him the title Kaviraja (king of poets). He wrote the Chaitanya-charitamrita, a philosophically profound biography of Lord Chaitanya. Despite his exalted position and vast learning, Krishnadasa Kaviraja Goswami always remained the emblem of humility. His samadhi stands on the bank of Radhakunda, Vrindavana.
