24 June 2017
Sri Gadadhara Pandit's disappearance day
Lord Chaitanya appeared 517 years ago, accompanied by four other personalities. One of them is Gadadhara Pandit. He is one of the most confidential associates of Lord Chaitanya, and the holy scriptures explain that he is actually an incarnation of Srimati Radharani, Krishna's eternal consort. He appeared in this age to assist Mahaprabhu in His pastimes.
"In the Gaura-ganodesa-dipika, verses 147 through 153, it is stated: "The pleasure potency of Sri Krishna formely known as Vrindavaneshvari is now personified in the form of Sri Gadadhara Pandit in the pastimes of Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Sri Svarupa Damodara Goswami has pointed out that in the shape of Lakshmi, the pleasure potency of Krishna, she was formely very dear to the Lord as Shyamasundara-vallabha. The same Shyamasundara-vallabha is now present as Gadadhara Pandit".
(Sri Chaitanya-charitamrita, Adi-lila, 10.15)
