November 24, 2016. Srila Narahari Sarakara Thakura disappearance.

Sri Narahari Sarkar Thakura was born at Sri Khanda. Sri Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami describes that the residents of Sri Khanda formed a branch of the desire tree of love of God. "Sri Khan davasi (the residents of Sri Khanda) Mukunda and his son Raghu nandan were the thirty ninth branch of the tree, Narahari was the fortieth, Chiran Jiva the forty first and Sulocana the forty second. They were all big branches of the all merciful tree of Caitanya Mahaprabhu. They distributed the fruits and flowers of love of Godhead anywhere and everywhere. [Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi-lila 10:78-79] Srila Jagannatha das Babaji Maharaj once stated - "Navadwip is the abode of Goloka. Vrindavana is the abode of Gokula. And Sri Khanda is the abode of Vaikuntha."

Sri Narahari Sarkar Thakura participated in all of Sri Gaurasundora's pastimes. Bhakti Ratnakara states: "Sri Sarkar Thakura's glories are most uncommon. In Braja he is known as Madhumati, whose good qualities are unlimited." (thus proving he was not the author of it)

One day, Nityananda Prabhu arrived at Sri Khanda and said to Narahari, "All right, we know who you are. So where's the honey, Madhu' ?" In Krsna-lila, Narahari is the sakhi Madhumati, whose service is to supply honey for Sri Sri Radha-Govinda and Their associates. So he immediately went to a nearby pond and filled a pot which immediately turned into honey of the most nectarean kind. Nityananda Prabhu and His associates drank from this pot to their full and unlimited satisfaction.

Narahari dasa Sarakara was a very famous devotee. Locana dasa Thakura, the celebrated author of Sri Caitanya-mangala, was his disciple. In the Caitanya-mangala it is stated that Sri Gadadhara dasa and Narahari Sarakara were extremely dear to Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, but there is no specific statement regarding the inhabitants of the village of Srikhanta. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi-lila 10:78-79.purport)

Sri Locana dasa Thakura was the dear disciple of Sri Narahari Sarkar. In his book Caitanya mangala he introduces his guru in this way: "My Thakur (spiritual master) is Sri Narahari das Thakura, who is very influential amongst the medical caste. He is continuously absorbed in Krsna-prema, and in fact his body knows nothing but Krsna. To his followers he speaks about nothing other than love of Krsna. He was previously known in Vrindavana-lila as Madhumati and was a storehouse of sweetness (honey), and very dear to Radharani. Now he is now present in Kali-yuga with Sri Gaurasundara as Sri Narahari. He is the keeper of the storehouse of love of Radha and Krsna." [Sri Caitanya Mangal, Sutrakhanda]

This is supported in Gaura Ganod-desh dipika of Kavi-karnapura 177., wherein it is said:

pura madhumati prana-
shakhi vrindavane sthitaa
adhuna naraharya-akhyah
saarakarah prabhoh priyah

"Srimati Radharani's dear friend, the Vraja-gopi named Madhumati-devi, appeared as Narahari Saarakaara, who was very dear to Lord Chaitanya".

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, in his Gaura-arati kirtana, sings of some of that intimate service to that he performed for Lord Chaitanya: 'kiba narahari adikari chamara dhulaya' "Narahari is fanning Gaurasundara with a yak-tail (chaumara) fan."

Sri Narahari Sarkar Thakura was a very expert singer as well as poet. He has composed many songs about the pastimes of Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda. He composed a Sanskrit work entitled Sri Bhajanamrta. Gaurviraha-gita pada kalpataru is also attributed to him, although some scholar devotees doubt whether it is really his own composition.

Most of Narahari Sarkar Thakura's songs have gotten mixed up with Narahari Chakravarti Thakura's compositions (Narahari Chakravarti Thakura is the author of Bhakti-ratnakara). Therefore is difficult to ascertain which are actually his. Before the appearance of Sri Gaurasundara he also composed many songs about the pastimes of Sri Sri Radha and Krsna.

Narahari was the only devotee who had the adhikara (right) to do Gaura-kirtana in Gaurasundara's presence. Ordinarily, if anyone would praise Mahaprabhu in His presence, or chant His Holy Name, He would block His ears and call out "Visnu! Visnu!" Narahari, however, enjoyed the special privilege of being able to sing about Mahaprabhu in a very unique mood and with sweet descriptions of His transcendental beauty without objection from Mahaprabhu.

But alas there is little else known of him.

His disappearance is on the ekadasi tithi day, of the dark fortnight, in the month of Agrahayon (Mrigasir – Nov-Dec).



Sri Narahari Sarkar Thakura nació en Sri Khanda. Sri Krsnadasa Kaviraja Gosvami describe que los residentes de Sri Khanda formaron una rama del árbol del deseo del amor de Dios. "Sri Khan davasi (los residentes de Sri Khanda) Mukunda y su hijo Raghu nandan fueron la trigésima novena rama del árbol, Narahari fue el cuadragésimo, Chiran Jiva el cuarenta primero y Sulocana el segundo cuarenta." Chaitanya Charitamrita Adilila 10: 78-79] Srila Jagannatha das Babaji Maharaj declaró una vez: "Navadwip es la morada de Goloka. Vrindavana es la morada de Gokula. Y Sri Khanda es la morada de Vaikuntha. "

Sri Narahari Sarkar Thakura participó en todos los pasatiempos de Sri Gaurasundora. Bhakti Ratnakara declara: "Las glorias de Sri Sarkar Thakura son muy infrecuentes, en Braja se le conoce como Madhumati, cuyas buenas cualidades son ilimitadas". (Así probando que él no era el autor de ella)

Un día, Nityananda Prabhu llegó a Sri Khanda y le dijo a Narahari: -De acuerdo, sabemos quién eres. ¿Dónde está la miel, Madhu? En Krsna-lila, Narahari es el sakhi Madhumati, cuyo servicio es suministrar miel para Sri Sri Radha-Govinda y sus asociados. Así que inmediatamente fui al estanque y llené la olla que de inmediato se convirtió en miel de la especie más nectárica. Nityananda Prabhu y sus asociados bebieron de esta olla a su plena e ilimitada satisfacción.

Narahari dasa Sarakara era un devoto muy famoso. Locana dasa Thakura, el célebre autor de Sri Caitanya-mangala, era su discípulo. En el Caitanya-mangala se dice que Sri Gadadhara dasa y Narahari Sarakara eran extremadamente queridos a Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, pero no hay una declaración específica sobre los habitantes de la aldea de Srikhanta. (A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, Chaitanya Charitamrita Adi-lila 10: 78-79.purport)

Sri Locana dasa Thakura era el querido discípulo de Sri Narahari Sarkar. En su libro Caitanya mangala introduce su guru de esta manera: "Mi Thakur (maestro espiritual) es Sri Narahari de Thakura, que es muy influyente entre la casta médica, está continuamente absorto en Krsna-prema, y ​​de hecho su cuerpo sabe Anteriormente era conocido como Madhumati en Vrindavana-lila y era un almacén de dulzura (miel), y muy querido a Radharani -yuga con Sri Gaurasundara como Sri Narahari, que es el guardián del almacén de amor de Radha y Krsna ". [Sri Caitanya Mangal, Sutrakhanda]

Esto se apoya en Gaura Ganod-desh dipika de Kavi-karnapura 177, en el que se dice:

Pure madhumati prana-
Shakhi vrindavane sthitaa
Adhuna naraharya-akhyah
Saharakarah prabhoh priyah

"El querido amigo de Srimati Radharani, el Vraja-gopi llamado Madhumati-devi, apareció como Narahari Saarakaara, que era muy querido por el Señor Chaitanya".

Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, en su Gaura-arati kirtana, canta algo de ese servicio íntimo al que realizó para el Señor Chaitanya: "kiba narahari adikari llamará dhulaya". Narahari está abanicando a Gaurasundara con un fanático de la cola de yak (chaumara).

Sri Narahari Sarkar Thakura fue un cantante muy experto, así como poeta. Ha compuesto muchas canciones sobre los pasatiempos del Señor Caitanya y del Señor Nityananda. He compuesto una obra sánscrita titulada Sri Bhajanamrta. Gaurviraha-gita pada kalpataru también se le atribuye, aunque algunos devotos eruditos dudan si realmente es su propia composición.

La mayoría de las canciones de Narahari Sarkar Thakura se han mezclado con las composiciones de Narahari Chakravarti Thakura (Narahari Chakravarti Thakura es el autor de Bhakti-ratnakara). Por lo tanto, es difícil determinar cuáles son realmente suyos. Antes de la aparición de Sri Gaurasundara he compuesto muchas canciones sobre los pasatiempos de Sri Sri Radha y Krsna.

Narahari era el único devoto que tenía la adhikara (derecha) de Gaura-kirtana en la presencia de Gaurasundara. Ordinariamente, si alguien alabara a Mahaprabhu en Su presencia, o cantara Su Santo Nombre, Él bloquearía Sus oídos y gritaría "Visnu! Visnu". Narahari, sin embargo, gozó del privilegio especial de ser capaz de cantar sobre Mahaprabhu en un estado de ánimo muy único y con dulces descripciones de Su belleza trascendental sin objeción de Mahaprabhu.

Pero, por desgracia, poco se sabe de él.

Su desaparición está en el ekadasi tithi, de la quincena oscura, en el mes de Agrahayon (Mrigasir - Nov-Dec).
