seeing through the eyes of scriptures
Today is Guru Purnima and the holy disappeance day of Srila Sanatana Goswami ;I was praying to Sanatana Goswami to give me intelligence and help to glorify him, but I got inspired to glorify Srila Jagadananda first to also please Srila Sanatana Goswami,who had so much love for Jagadananda Pandita.
This Prema Vaivarta is such an important book written by Srila Jagadananda Pandit it contains the essence of the teachings of Lord Caitanya..let us all bow at his lotusfeet.In chapter 15 he reveals some Gauranga lilas not mentiond in CC or CB or any other vaisnava litterature.It is wonderful how Durvasa Muni cursed this boy and how he was liberated by Lord Caitanya Himself.Durvasa muni also appeared in Gaurangas lilas:111. Sri Jagannatha Acarya, who was also known as Gangadasa Pandita, was very dear to Lord Caitanya. In his previous life he had been Durvasa Muni, who delighted the gopis and was very dear to them. (see http://bvml.org/SBBTM/p_sgdp.html)
Narayana Maharaja hs stated that Jagadananda Pandit is really a manjari (it would appear so from his own statements in the later part of Prema Vaivarta) but Lord Caitanya has stated he is the incarnation of Satyabhama, Srila Kavi Karna Pura writes in his Gaura Ganodesa Dipika :
51. The person who appeared in Lord Caitanya's pastimes as Jagadananda Pandita was actually an incarnation of Srimati Satyabhama-devi. What devotee can say otherwise?
Srila Prabhupada has also mentioned this in his purports of the CC.If Kavi Karnapure says what devotee can otherwise?Also confirmed by Krsna das Kaviraja in CC 10.21
I accept that and the statement of Sriman Mahaprabhu himself.
Also there is a vers that describes the great sage Visvamitra muni in the Gaura Ganodesa Dipika :
49. The same person who appeared as Visvamitra Muni, who arranged the marriage of Lord Ramacandra, and who also appeared as the brahmana messenger sent by Srimati Rukmini-devi to Lord Kesava, also appeared in Lord Caitanya's pastimes as Vanamali Acarya, who was famous as a learned astrologer.
(they are all the one and same person the great sage Visvamitra Muni--with great eagerness I pay my full obaisences at his lotusfeet)
This Gaura Ganoddesa Dipika is so amazing the more you read it, there more nectarean is becomes:
44. The same person who was Maharaja Janaka, the king of Mithila, appeared during Lord Caitanya's pastimes as Vallabhacarya. Some people differ from this view, and say that Vallabhacarya was an incarnation of Maharaja Bhismaka.
45. The same person who formerly appeared as Janaki-devi and Rukmini-devi appeared during Lord Caitanya's pastimes as Srimati Laksmipriya, the daughter of Vallabhacarya.
