Ärî Jagadîäa Paòàita

"Ärî Jagadîäa Paòàita is the savior of the world. He distributes the nectar of love of Kèëòa just like a dense mass of dark clouds in the sky distributes rainfall." (C.c. Adi 11.30)

Ärî Jagadîäa Bhaùùa took his birth in the region of Gaihati. His father's name was Ärî Kamalaksa Bhaùùa, who was the son of Bhaùùa Nârâyaòa, who hailed from Goyghar Bandyaghata. Both the mother and father of Jagadîäa were very devoted Viëòu-bhaktas. After his parents passed away he came with his wife to live on the banks of the Ganges. His wife's name was Dukhini-devi. (His younger brother Mahesa also came with him to reside on the banks of the Gaôgâ.) They built their house near the home of Jagannâtha Miära.

Ärî Gaurasundara instructed Jagadîäa to preach Hari Nam at Nilacala. Thus he took shelter of the lotus feet of Lord Jagannâtha. At that time he prayed at the feet of Lord Jagannâtha and was rewarded by obtaining a Deity of the lotus-eyed Lord. This he brought to Yasora (Yasada), on the banks of the Gaôgâ near Cakdaha. This Deity was brought suspended from a staff which is still being worshiped in the temple of Lord Jagannâtha at Jasora. This temple is presently under the charge of Ärî Gaudiya Math, and is a rickshaw ride away from Cakdaha railway station, on the Sealdah-Kèëòanagar line.

Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityânanda sometimes used to go to Jasora to have festivals of sankirtana. Jagadîäa Paòàita's son was Ärî Rambhadra Gosvâmî. In the temple are Deities of Ärî Jagannâtha Deva, Ärî Radha-Vallabhaji and Ärî Gaura-Gopâla. It is said that the Gaura Gopâla Deity was established by Ärî Duhkhini Devi. The Deity is a golden color.

After Lord Caitanya conducted a sankirtan festival at the home of Jagadîäa Paòàita, He planned to go to Nilacala. Duhkhini, however, knowing the Lord's mind, was very distressed by feelings of impending separation. At that time Mahâprabhu gave her this Deity and said, "I will eternally remain in your house in the form of this Deity." From that day this Deity of Gaura-Gopâla is being worshiped there. In Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika it is revealed that Jagadîäa and Hiranya were wives of the Vedic brahmanas in Kèëòa-lila. According to another opinion, "He who was previously known as Candrahasa, a famous dancer in Kèëòa-lila, is now famous as Jagadîäa Paòàita, who also takes great pleasure in ecstatic dancing."

On one Ekadasi day, the young Ärî Gaurahari wanted to eat rice from the house of Jagadîäa and Hiranya. The Lord said to His parents, "If you don't want Me to die, then immediately go to the house of two brahmanas by the names of Jagadîäa and Hiranya, with whom I am very pleased. They are both fasting for Ekadasi, but they have prepared some offerings for Lord Viëòu. If you can obtain some of that Viëòu-prasada then I'll recover my health and be able to move about." (C.B. Adi 6.20-23) One day, child Gaurahari was crying incessantly. His parents told him, "First tell us what you want. We'll bring it, but please don't cry."

He replied, "On this Ekadasi day in Jagadîäa and Hiranya's house are many preparations of Viëòu-prasada. If I can eat that then I'll be alright."

Hearing this impossible request of her son, Saci Mata put her hand on her head and began to lament. Upon hearing the words of the child, the neighbors laughed in amazement. "How is it that such a young child as this is aware that today is Ekadasi?"

Then the ladies told Him, "Bap Nimai, don't cry anymore, we'll bring what you have requested." When the two brahmanas heard of the child's request they were very pleased. Both of them were very intimate friends of Jagannâtha Miära and they were well aware that the Supreme Personality of Godhead Ärî Hari had appeared in his house. Therefore, whatever they had prepared for Lord Hari they brought before Ärî Gaurahari and told Him, "Bap, Visvambhara! We have brought everything which You requested. Now please eat it in great happiness and don't cry anymore."

Bhagavana Ärî Gaurasundara, along with His friends, then enjoyed that feast. While doing so, He showed His transcendental Bala-Gopâla form to Jagadîäa and Hiranya. His bodily lustre, appearing like a fresh rain cloud, with a peacock feather adorning His head, the splendor of His beauty was reflected in the faces of the other boys in whose company He was enjoying this feast. Such a charming and beautiful sight was revealed before the eyes of Jagadîäa and Hiranya. Seeing this scene, the two brahmanas loudly chanted, "Hari! Hari!" (Gaurâôga Campu Q.(?)20)

Jagadîäa Paòàita probably came to Yasora after Mahâprabhu took sannyasa. He went every year to Puri and was also present at Cira-doy Danda Mahotsava at Panihati. His disappearance is on the third day of the bright fortnight in the month of Pausa.
