Krsna lila - Krsna's Flute
Father: Chakauri Caööopädhyäya
Vamsivadananda Thakur wrote many sweet poems expressing his
devotion to Krsna. The day he appeared, Lord Caitanya and Sri
Advaita Prabhu were staying in his home in Bengal. After the
disappearance of Srimati Visnupriya Devi, he worshiped her
Deities in Navadvipa.
At birth, Çréla Vaàçé-vadanänanda Öhäkura was given the name
Vaàsé or Vaàçé däsa. He was also known as Vadana and Vadanänanda. He was born in 1494 or, according to others, in 1505, and was regarded as an incarnation of Kåñëa's flute. This
was later confirmed in Çré Gaura-gaëoddeça-dépikä (179) - written approximately 1576 - the book of Çréla Kavi Karëapüra which reveals the identities of Mahäprabhu's associates in kåñëa-lélä.
The name Vaàçé-vadana refers to Çré Kåñëa, the flute-player.
One who gives änanda (bliss) to Kåñëa by enabling Him to play
on the flute and thus attract the beloved gopés to Him is known
as Vaàçé-vadanänanda. Thus, although his birth name was simply
Vaàçé däsa, he came to be known as Vaàçé-vadanänanda
Prabhu or Öhäkura.
