RAGHUNATHA BHATTA GOSVAMI

Krsna lila - Raga manjari

Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami, one of the six Gosvamis of Vrndavana, was ordered by Lord Caitanya to go to Vrndavana and there constantly chant the Hare Krsna mantra and read Srimad-Bhagavatam. Every day while living in a cottage by the shore of Radha-kunda he would sweetly sing the verses of the Bhagavatam to the local residents. His tears of pure love would wet the pages of the Bhagavatam as he sang. Raghunatha Bhatta Gosvami never criticized anyone. He believed that all Vaisnavas are sincerely serving Krsna according to their realization and therefore one should overlook their faults. Under his inspiration, a wealthy disciple built the temple for the Radha-Govinda Deities in Vrndavana.

(See Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 10.152-158.)
