Rasikananda Prabhu preached Krishna consciousness in northern Orissa after the disappearance of Lord Chaytania. He was the principal dicipulo of Syamamnda Goswami.
By the enormous influence of the preaching of Rasikananda, many rogues, thieves and atheists were delivered forgetting their sinful activities and receiving his mercy. He distributed the jewel of devotion even to Muslims, traveling from village to village in the company of his disciples. He even became his disciple wild elephant, who was sent for destruction, and put it at the service of Krishna and the Vaishnavas. The evil Muslim who sent the elephant fell at his feet when he realized his mistake. You can not count the number of living entities Rasikananda Deva has taken the ocean of material existence. He was always intoxicated with the chanting of the holy name.
