Junary 17, 2017. Srila Jayadeva Gosvami, disappearance.

Sri Jayadeva Gosvami was the chief pandita in the court of the king Sri Laksman Sena. His father's name was Bhojadeva and his mothers name was Bama devi. He made his appearance at Kendu- bilvagram within the district of Birhum, during the 11th century.

Sri Jayadeva's wife's name was Sri Padmavati. During the time that he was engaged as the chief pandita of Raja Laksman Sena, he resided at Navadwipa on the banks of Ganga. Also present with were three other panditas whose names he has mentioned in Sri Gita-Govinda: Sri Umapatidhar, Acarya Sri Govardhan and Kavi Ksamapati, who were his close friends.

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu used to especially relish hearing the Gita Govinda as well as the works of Candidas, Vidyapati, Ramananda Ray and the Krsna-karnamrta by Bilvamangala Thakur. Sri Gita Govinda is full of intimate pastimes of Sri Sri Radha Govinda and is therefore meant for those who have accumulated sufficient spiritual piety.

"For those who relish the remembrance of the pastimes of Sri Hari and who are always anxious to hear those transcendental divine narrations, these verses, sweet as honey, have been composed by Jayadeva with the blessings of Mother Sarasvati."

In the Gita Govinda, while writing about the pastimes of Radharani as She repented after Krsna had gone away, he became lost in thought. Not being able to decide whether or not he should write a particular verse, he decided to first take his bath, and return to his writing later. While he taking his bath, Krsna Himself personally appeared in the form of Jayadeva, took his meal and then wrote down that very verse with His own hand. Then, while Padmavati was accepting her meal Jayadeva returned from taking his bath in the Ganga. Padmavati was completely startled to see her husband, and Jayadeva as well was very suprised to see that his wife was accepting her meal before him (which is never done by Hindu wives). Finally she explained that he had already returned from taking his bath once, taken his meal, and then gone to his room. Jayadeva went to where he had been writing and saw the verse that he had been considering whether to write or not, now composed in golden letters.

With tears in his eyes and voice choked up he called out to his wife, "Padmavati! You are so fortunate! You had darshana of the Supreme Lord!"

Bhaktivinoda Thakura has commented that even though Sri Gauranga Deva hadn't revealed his internal pastimes at that time, within the heart of Sri Jayadeva, Sri Bilvamangala, Sri Candi das and Sri Vidyapati, the transcendental mood of Mahaprabhu was awakened even before He Himself actually made His appearance.

Jayadeva Gosvami also composed a book named Candraloka. His disappearance is on Pausa sankranti. He also composed the celebrated Dasavatara Stotram.

His worshipable Deities, Sri Sri Radha-Madhava, are being worshipped in the former temple of Radha-Govinda just outside the present city of Jaipur.



Sri Jayadeva Gosvami era el pandita principal en la corte del rey Sri Laksman Sena. El nombre de su padre era Bhojadeva y el nombre de su madre era Bama devi. Hizo su aparición en Kendubilagram dentro del distrito de Birhum, durante el siglo XI.

El nombre de la esposa de Sri Jayadeva era Sri Padmavati. Durante el tiempo que fue contratado como el pandita principal de Raja Laksman Sena, residió en Navadwipa en las orillas de Ganga. También estuvieron presentes otros tres panditas cuyos nombres mencionó en Sri Gita-Govinda: Sri Umapatidhar, Acarya Sri Govardhan y Kavi Ksamapati, quienes eran sus amigos íntimos.

Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu solía disfrutar especialmente de la Gita Govinda, así como de las obras de Candidas, Vidyapati, Ramananda Ray y Krsna-karnamrta de Bilvamangala Thakur. Sri Gita Govinda está llena de pasatiempos íntimos de Sri Sri Radha Govinda y, por lo tanto, es para aquellos que han acumulado suficiente piedad espiritual.

"Para aquellos que saborean el recuerdo de los pasatiempos de Sri Hari y que siempre están ansiosos por escuchar esas narraciones divinas trascendentales, estos versos, dulces como la miel, han sido compuestos por Jayadeva con las bendiciones de la Madre Sarasvati".

En la Gita Govinda, al escribir sobre los pasatiempos de Radharani cuando se arrepintió después de que Krsna se había ido, se perdió en sus pensamientos. Al no ser capaz de decidir si debía o no escribir un verso en particular, decidió primero tomar su baño y regresar a su escritura más tarde. Mientras tomaba su baño, el mismo Krsna personalmente apareció en forma de Jayadeva, tomó su comida y luego escribió ese mismo verso con Su propia mano. Entonces, mientras Padmavati aceptaba su comida, Jayadeva regresó de tomar su baño en el Ganges. Padmavati se sorprendió al ver a su marido, y Jayadeva también se sorprendió al ver que su esposa estaba aceptando su comida antes que él (lo que nunca es hecho por las esposas hindúes). Finalmente ella explicó que él ya había regresado de tomar su baño una vez, tomó su comida, y luego fue a su habitación. Jayadeva se dirigió a donde había estado escribiendo y vio el versículo que había estado considerando si escribir o no, ahora compuesto en letras de oro.

Con las lágrimas en los ojos y la voz ahogada, llamó a su esposa: -¡Padmavati, eres tan afortunada, tuviste darshana del Señor Supremo!

Bhaktivinoda Thakura ha comentado que aunque Sri Gauranga Deva no había revelado sus pasatiempos internos en ese momento, en el corazón de Sri Jayadeva, Sri Bilvamangala, Sri Candi das y Sri Vidyapati, el estado trascendental de Mahaprabhu fue despertado incluso antes de que El mismo Hizo su aparición.

Jayadeva Gosvami también compuso un libro llamado Candraloka. Su desaparición está en Pausa sankranti. También compuso el célebre Dasavatara Stotram.


Sus Deidades adorables, Sri Sri Radha-Madhava, están siendo adoradas en el antiguo templo de Radha-Govinda, justo a las afueras de la actual ciudad de Jaipur.
