February 2, 2013. Sri Locana Dasa Thakura, dissapearence

Lochan Das Thakur was born in 1523 in Kogram, in the Katwa block of Burdwan district. This village is about ten miles north of Guskara train station. The Thakur's home is situated near the Ajaya River.

His birth tithi is given by some as the first day of the fortnight of the waxing moon in Paush. He was born in the Rarha clan of the physician caste (vaidya). His father's name was Kamalakar Das, his mother's Sadanandi. Lochan Das studied at his maternal grandfather's house. He displayed devotion for Mahaprabhu from his childhood.

Lochan Das was married at a very early age, according to the customs of that époque. Since he had been married so young, his wife first remained with her parents in the village of Amedpur Kakuta. As he grew older, Lochan showed a highly renounced attitude to life and spent all his time discussing Krishna katha with other devotees of Gauranga. As the time approached when his wife was to join him, her family began to worry because of Lochan Das's indifference to material life. They approached his guru Narahari Sarkar and told him of their disquiet. As a result, Narahari ordered Lochan Das to go to his in-laws' home.

When Lochan arrived in Amedpur, he was unable to remember where their house was, since it had been so long since he had visited. He asked a young girl in the street for directions, addressing her as "ma", or "mother". When he arrived at his in-laws' house, he found out that the girl whom he had addressed as "mother" was in fact his wife. From that day on, he always looked upon his wife as a mother, worshiping Guru and Gauranga in an attitude of renunciation.






Locana Dasa Thakura, un discípulo de Narahari Sarakara Thakura, escribió muchas canciones en bengalí glorificando al Señor Caitanya. Su obra poética más famosa es el Caitanya-mangala, una descripción de la vida del Señor Caitanya.
Vea el Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 10.78 a 79.



Lochana Das Thakur nació en 1523 en Kogram, Katwa, se casó a una edad muy temprana. De acuerdo a las costumbres de esa época, su esposa permaneció con sus padres en la aldea de Amedpur Kakuta. Cuando él creció, comenzó a mostrar una actitud muy renunciada y ocupando todo su tiempo discutiendo Krishna Katha con los devotos de Sri Chaitanya. 

La biografía del Señor escrita por Vrindavan Das Thakur fue llamada Chaitanya-Mangala y sólo más tarde fue conocida como Chaitanya Bhagavata. Lochana Das da una indicación de esto en la parte introductoria de su libro.

Lochana Das terminó sus pasatiempos en este mundo en el año 1589. Un samadhi de ladrillos en su Sripat, marca el lugar donde sus restos están enterrados.
