Ärî PARAMESVARA Dâsa Ùhâkura

Ärî PARAMESVARA Dâsa Ùhâkura

Ärî Paramesvara dâsa Ùhâkura appeared in a family of physicians. His Ärîpat is at Atapur, which was on the Canpandanga branch of the Howrah-Amrah rail line. Rail service on this line has been discontinued. Direct bus service is available from Howrah station; it is about a 2 hour journey from there.

Atapur was previously known as Visakhala. Ärî Ärî Râdhâ-Govinda are still

residing at his Ärîpat. In front of the temple are two Bakul trees and in

between them is Paramesvara Ùhâkura's Samadhi mandira.

Ärî Kèëòa das Kaviraj Gosvâmî has written: "Paramesvara das, said to be the fifth gopala of Kèëòa-lila, completely surrendered to the lotus feet of Nityânanda. Anyone who remembers his name, Paramesvara dâsa, will get love of Kèëòa very easily." (C.C. Adi 11.29)

Ärî Kavi Karnapura Gosvâmî has written:

namnarjunah sakha prag yo dâsah paramesvarah.

"Paramesvara dâsa Ùhâkura was previously the cowherd friend of Ärî Kèëòa named Arjuna."

Ärî Vrindavana dâsa Ùhâkura has written:

nityananda jivan paramesvar das jahar vigrahe nityananda vilasa Kèëòa das paramesvar das dvi jon gopabhave hoi hoi kore sarvakkon


"Paramesvara is the life of Lord Nityânanda and his form (body) is the place of his pastimes. Kèëòa dâsa and Paramesvara, being in the mood of cowherd boys, are always raising a commotion."

When Jahnava Mata attended the festival at Kheturi, Paramesvara accompanied her and went to Vrindavana with her as well. He installed Ärî Ärî Râdhâ-Gopinatha at Atapur in accordance with the desire of Ärî Jahnava-devi, who was personally present during the installation celebration.

paramesvari dâsa thakura bandibo sabdhane Ärîgale loyar nam sankirtan sthane

One day, near Ärî Rampur, at Akna Mahesh (the Ärîpat of Kamalakara Pippalai), there was a festival of nama-sankirtan going on within the temple of Lord Jagannâtha there. Paramesvara was present and was dancing in a completely God-intoxicated state. At that time some miscreants passed by there, and seeing a dead fox lying on the road, they picked it up and threw it into the midst of the sankirtan party.

The highly exalted Vaisnavas present didn't feel any anger towards those ignorant fools, but Paramesvara felt sad to see the unfortunate dead fox, and so by his merciful glance he brought it back to life. Then that fox trotted out of the nat-mandir (kirtan hall) to the utter bewilderment of those miscreants, who then immediately fled from the spot.

Paramesvara dâsa Ùhâkura accompanied the Deity of Râdhârani that Ärî Jahnava-devi sent to Vrindavana for Ärî Govinda. He was the very dear servant of Ärî Jahnava Mata.

His disappearance is on the full moon day of the month of Vaisakha. On that day the khunti (a symbol carried on a staff preceeding the kirtana party) that he used in sankirtan is placed next to his samadhi mandir.

Supposedly its history dates from the time when the Kazi gave his promise that no one would ever disturb the sankirtan parties again. This was an emblem of the Kazi, and its presence in front of the sankirtan party indicated that the party was sanctioned by the Kazi and thus no one should disturb them. Today it is decorated with eyes, tilak, flower garlands and cloths, and worshipped as a manifestation of Mahâprabhu Himself.
