Ramachandra Goswami · Posted by Jagat on May 19th 2004 - 03:13 +0200
Ramachandra Goswami (Ramai Gosai) wsa born in 1533 (1455 Saka). He was the grandson of Nabadwip resident Vamsivadanananda Thakur. According to Murali Vilasa, written by Ramachandra's disciple Rajaballabha, Vamsivadan told his son Chaitanya Das's wife on his deathbed that he would return again as her son in order to spread devotion to Radha and Krishna in Bengal.

Ramachandra was adopted by Nityananda Prabhu's wife Jahnava and initiated by her. He traveled with her to Vraja Dham and spent many years there. He returned with Krishna Balaram deities (Kanai Balai). He established his Sripat in Baghna Para a few kilometers south of Nabadwip. The village received its name from a miraculous event, whereby Ramachandra pacified a tiger that was troubling the area by chanting the names of Krishna to it.

Baghna Para is still the home of Ramachandra's descendents. Though he never married, his nephew Rajaballabha did and through him, the line continues to the present day. Bhaktivinoda Thakur took initiation from Bipin Bihari Goswami, a member of this Vaishnava dynasty.
