November 26, 2016. Srila Saranga Thakura disappearance.

Another name of Thakur Saranga Das was Sarnga Thakur. Sometimes he was also called Sarngapani or Sarngadhara. He was a resident of Navadvip in the neighborhood known as Modadruma-dvip, and he used to worship the Supreme Lord in a secluded place on the bank of the Ganges. He was not accepting disciples, but he was repeatedly being inspired from within by the Supreme Personality of Godhead to do so.

Thus one morning he decided, ‘Whomever I see I shall make my disciple.’ When he went to the bank of the Ganges to take his bath, by chance he saw a dead body floating in the water, and he touched it with his feet. This immediately brought the body to life, and Thakur Saranga Das accepted him as his disciple. This disciple later became famous as Thakur Murari, and his name is always associated with that of Sri Saranga.

His disciplic succession still inhabits the village of Sar. There is a temple at Mamgachi that is said to have been started by Saranga Thakur. Not long ago, a new temple building was erected in front of a bakula tree there, and it is now being managed by the members of the Gaudiya Math. It is said that the management of the temple is now far better than before. In the Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika (172) it is stated that Saranga Thakur was formerly a gopi named Nandimukhi. Some devotees say that he was formerly Prahlad Maharaj, but Sri Kavi-karnapura says that his father, Shivananda Sen, does not accept this proposition.



Otro nombre de Thakur Saranga Das fue Sarnga Thakur. A veces también se le llamaba Sarngapani o Sarngadhara. Era un residente de Navadvip en el barrio conocido como Modadruma-dvip, y solía adorar al Señor Supremo en un lugar aislado en la orilla del Ganges. Él no estaba aceptando discípulos, pero fue repetidamente inspirado desde dentro por la Suprema Personalidad de Dios para hacerlo.

Así que una mañana decidió: "A quien yo vea, haré a mi discípulo." Cuando él fue a la orilla del Ganges para tomar su baño, por casualidad vio un cadáver flotando en el agua, y lo tocó con sus pies . Esto inmediatamente trajo el cuerpo a la vida, y Thakur Saranga Das lo aceptó como su discípulo. Este discípulo más tarde se hizo famoso como Thakur Murari, y su nombre siempre se asocia con el de Sri Saranga.

Su sucesión discipular aún habita el pueblo de Sar. Hay un templo en Mamgachi que se dice para haber sido comenzado por Saranga Thakur. No hace mucho, un nuevo edificio del templo fue erigido delante de un árbol del bakula allí, y ahora está siendo manejado por los miembros de las matemáticas de Gaudiya. Se dice que la gestión del templo es ahora mucho mejor que antes. En el Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika (172) se afirma que Saranga Thakur era anteriormente una gopi llamada Nandimukhi. Algunos devotos dicen que él era antes Prahlad Maharaj, pero Sri Kavi-karnapura dice que su padre, Shivananda Sen, no acepta esta proposición.
