Haridas Dasji has given a short overview of Bhagavatananda Swami in his Vaishnava Jivana (pp. 302-315).

Born in a middle-class brahmin family in Jessore district, he left home at the age of 13. He wore saffron-colored cloth, which was given to him by a tantrik yogi while still very young. He went to live in Nabadwip where he studied Vaishnava scriptures. Wide travels in Vrindavan, etc. Of which seven years were spent living in a gupha in Kamyavana, living on madhukari. Later he preached extensively in East Bengal and Assam--Mymensingh, Silchar, Dhaka, Sylhet and Tripura.

Books: Kripa-kusumanjali, Sadhana-kusumanjali, Sri-guru-vaisnava-bhaktti-kusumanjali, Sri-guru-tattva-kusumanjali, Sri-lila-tattva-kusumanjali.

He left this world in 1942. His samadhi is in Nabadwip.
