Junary 31, 2013. Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja appearance.

  Srila Narottama dasa Thakura has sung: “daya koro sri acarya prabhu srinivasa, ramacandra sanga mage narottama dasa—O Srinivasa acarya Prabhu, kindly have mercy upon me; Narottama dasa always prays for the association of  Ramacandra Kaviraja.”

     Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja was one of the internal associates of Narottama Thakura. The two of them were practically inseparable. Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja had obtained the full mercy and blessings of Srinivasa acarya. Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja's father's name was Ciranjiva Sena—his mother's name was Sri Sunanda.  At first Sri Ciranjiva Sen lived in Kumara Nagara. After he married the daughter of the poet Sri Damodara Kavi, he moved to the village of Sri Khanda. Ciranjiva Sen was a Mahabhagavata, a topmost devotee of the Lord. The devotees of Sri Khanda, headed by Narahari Sarakara Thakura all had great affection and respect for Ciranjiva. 

     Ciranjiva is mentioned in Caitanya-Caritamrta by Krsna dasa Kaviraja Goswami as follows (CC Madhya 11.92): “Gopinatha acarya continued to point out the devotees [to Prataparudra Maharaja]. ‘Here is Suklambara. See, there is Sridhara. Here is Vijaya, and there is Vallabha Sena. Here is Purusottama, and there is Sanjaya. And here are all the residents of Kulina-grama, such as Satyaraja Khan and Ramananda. Indeed, all of them are present here. Please see. Here are Mukunda dasa, Narahari, Sri Raghunandana, Ciranjiva and Sulocana, all residends of Khanda. How many names shall I speak to you? All the devotees you see here are associates of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, who is their life and soul.’ The King said, ‘Upon seeing all these devotees, I am much astonished, for I have never seen such an effulgence. Indeed their effulgence is like the brilliance of a million suns. Nor have I ever heard the Lord's names chanted so melodiously.’”

     Mukunda dasa, Narahari, Sri Raghunandana, and Ciranjiva all lived in  Khanda.
    They were as one, for their aim in life was the same, and every year at the time of the Ratha-yatra festival they used to go to Jagannatha Puri dhama to take darsan of the holy feet of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, to take part in the kirtana and behold his wonderful dancing and chanting.
     Ciranjiva Sen took birth in a vaidya family, that is, within the doctor caste.  His two sons were Sri Ramacandra and Sri Govinda. These two sons were great jewels.  Both of them attained the mercy of Srinivasa acaraya Prabhu, after which they went to live in Teliya-budhari-grama. Budhari-grama is in the Mursidabad district.

     Ramacandra Kaviraja was especially enthusiastic, earnest, persevering, energetic, intelligent, and beautiful. His maternal grandfather was Sri Damodara Kaviraja, who was famous as a great poet. He used to instruct people in the philosophy of the saktas. He was also initiated into the path of dharma followed by the saktas.

      After the passing away of their father, Ciranjiva, Sri Ramacandra and Sri Govinda went to live at the place of their grandfather Damodara Kaviraja. As they were living with their scholarly grandfather, who was a follower of sakta-ism, they too gradually became infected with this anti-devotional philosophy, even though their father had been a great mahabhagavata devotee and personal associate of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Ramacandra Sen became a doctor and gradually he became famous as a highly learned poet as well. 

     One day, Ramacandra Kaviraja was on the road to Yajigrama, on his way home from his wedding. At that time, Srinivasa acarya was passing on the road, accompanied by his followers.
     One day Shrinivasa Acharaya was in Yajigrama at his own house, where many devotees had gathered to hear him lecture on Shrimad-Bhagavatam. At that time, passing by the house of Shrinivasa Acharya was Ramachandra Kaviraja the son of Chiranjiva Sen (one of Mahaprabhu's eternal associates).  He had just been married, and he and his new bride were on their way back from the wedding. 

       From a long way off, Shrinivasa Acharya saw Ramachandra Kaviraja, and Ramachandra Kaviraja also saw Shrinvasa Acharya from a distance. Upon seeing each other from a distance a deep mood of friendship arose within the hearts of those two eternally perfect devotees of Shri Gauranga. After seeing each other they were eager to meet one another.  Shrinivasa Acharya inquired about Ramachandra Kaviraja from the local people.  They told him that he was a great pandita named Ramacandra—a learned poet and expert doctor from a family of doctors and scholars. Hear all this, Srinivasa acarya smiled, for he was greatly pleased. 

      Ramachandra Kaviraja had heard about Shrinivasa Acharya and was eager to have his darsana.  In this way, he finally went to the house of  Srinivasa acarya along with his new bride and were introduced by some of the local people.  The day passed quickly in discussion of Hari-katha. They spent the night where they had been staying since coming to Yajigrama, at a brahmana's house near the home of Shrinvasa Acharaya, and the following morning went to Shrinivasa Acharya and fell before his feet offering prostrated obeisances. 


Srila Narottama dasa Thakura ha cantado: "daya koro Sri Srinivasa Acarya Prabhu, Ramacandra sanga mage Narottama dasa-O Srinivasa Acarya Prabhu, por favor ten misericordia de mí; Narottama dasa siempre reza por la asociación de Ramacandra Kaviraja".
Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja fue uno de los colaboradores internos de Narottama Thakura. Los dos de ellos eran prácticamente inseparables. Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja había obtenido la misericordia y las bendiciones de lleno Srinivasa acarya. Nombre del padre de Sri Ramacandra Kaviraja fue Ciranjiva de Sena-su nombre de la madre era Sri Sunanda. Al principio Sri Ciranjiva Sen vivido en Nagara Kumara. Después se casó con la hija del poeta Sri Damodara Kavi, se trasladó a la aldea de Sri Khanda. Ciranjiva Sen era un Mahabhagavata, un devoto más elevado del Señor. Los devotos de Sri Khanda, encabezado por Narahari Sarakara Thakura todos tenían un gran afecto y respeto por Ciranjiva.
Ciranjiva se menciona en el Caitanya-caritamrta por Krsna dasa Kaviraja Goswami como sigue (CC Madhya 11.92): "Gopinatha acarya continuó señalando los devotos [a Prataparudra Maharaja]. "Aquí está Suklambara. Mira, hay Sridhara. Aquí es Vijaya, y hay Vallabha Sena. Aquí es Purusottama, y ​​hay Sanjaya. Y aquí están todos los residentes de Kulina-grama, como Satyaraja Khan y Ramananda. De hecho, todos ellos están presentes aquí. Por favor, ven. Aquí hay Mukunda dasa, Narahari, Raghunandana Lanka, Ciranjiva y Sulocana, todos residends de Khanda. ¿Cuántos nombres voy a hablar con usted? Todos los devotos que se ven aquí son asociados de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, quien es su vida y su alma. 'El rey dijo: "Al ver a todos esos devotos, estoy muy sorprendido, pues nunca he visto un resplandor. En verdad, su resplandor es como el brillo de un millón de soles. Tampoco he oído alguna vez los nombres del Señor cantaba tan dulcemente ".
 
Mukunda dasa, Narahari, Raghunandana Lanka, y todos vivían en Ciranjiva Khanda.

Ellos todos a una, para su objetivo en la vida era el mismo, y todos los años en la época del festival Ratha-yatra solían ir a Jagannatha Puri dhama para tomar darshan de los pies sagrados de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, para tomar parte en el kirtana y contemplar su maravillosa danza y el canto.

Ambos se alcanza merced de Srinivasa Prabhu acaraya, tras lo cual se fue a vivir a Teliya-budhari-grama. Budhari-grama se encuentra en el distrito Mursidabad.

Cuando estaban viviendo con su abuelo académica, que era un seguidor de sakta-ismo, también poco a poco se infectaron con esta filosofía anti-devocional, a pesar de que su padre había sido un devoto mahabhagavata gran y personal asociado de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Ramacandra Sen se convirtió en un médico y poco a poco se hizo famoso como poeta altamente aprendido también.
Un día, Ramacandra Kaviraja estaba en el camino a Yajigrama, en su camino a casa de su boda. En ese momento, Srinivasa acarya pasaba en la carretera, acompañado de sus seguidores.
Un día estaba en Shrinivasa Acharaya Yajigrama en su propia casa, donde muchos devotos se habían reunido para escucharlo disertar sobre Srimad-Bhagavatam.

De una manera larga apagado, Shrinivasa Acharya vio Ramachandra Kaviraja y Ramachandra Kaviraja también vieron Shrinvasa Acharya desde la distancia. Al ver entre sí a una distancia de un estado de ánimo profundo de la amistad surgió en los corazones de los dos devotos eternamente perfectas de Shri Gauranga. Después de ver unos a otros que estaban dispuestos a encontrarse. Shrinivasa Acharya preguntó por Ramachandra Kaviraja de la población local. Le dijeron que era un gran pandita llamado Ramacandra, un poeta aprendido y médico experto de una familia de médicos y académicos. Escucha todo esto, Srinivasa acarya sonrió, porque él estaba muy contento.
