Ärî Bhâgavata Âcârya

Ärî Raghunâtha Bhaùùâcârya resided at Barahanagar. When Mahâprabhu was journeying to Nilacala after taking sannyasa, He came to Barahanagar after passing through Kumar Hatta and Panihati.

"Then Mahâprabhu came to Barahanagar, to the house of one brahmana who had attained the limits of good fortune. This brahmana was very learned in Ärîmad-Bhâgavatam and upon seeing Mahâprabhu he began to recite various slokas. When Mahâprabhu heard these slokas, describing the excellence of the path of devotion (Bhakti yoga) He (Gauranga-Narayana) became overwhelmed with ecstatic love, saying again and again, 'Speak on, speak on.' Thus Ärî Gauranga Raya began to roar very loudly." (C.B. Ant. 5.110)

Prabhu told him, "I never heard anyone recite the Bhâgavata like this before.

Therefore your name should be Bhâgavatâcârya, and this should be your only activity - to recite the Bhâgavata." Hearing this blessing bestowed by the Lord, Raghunatha was very pleased and as he prepared to offer his obeisances to the Lord, Mahâprabhu caught hold on him and embraced him very firmly. Mahâprabhu spent the night there in great happiness.

In Ärî Kèëòa-prema-tarangini, Bhâgavatâcârya has introduced himself as the disciple of Ärî Gadâdhara Paòàita. "Paòàita Gosai's (Ärî Gadâdhara Paòàita) glories are sung throughout the three worlds. He has so mercifully descended on this mortal soil to deliver numberless wicked souls. He is the pleasure potency of the Hero of Vaikuntha, Ärî Kèëòa Caitanya, and is thus non-different from Him. He is my most worshipable Lord, my Gurudeva, and His lotus feet are the shelter of my body, words and mind." ('Ärî Kèëòa-prema-tarangini')

Ärî Bhâgavatâcârya had just began to compose 'Ärî Kèëòa-prema-tarangini', when he first met Ärî Gaurasundara, thus throughout this work, in many places, extremely beautiful descriptions of Mahâprabhu can be found. Just north of Calcutta on the banks of the Ganga within Mali para palli, of Barahanagar, can be found Ärî Bhâgavatâcârya's Ärîpat. Handwritten copies of his compositons are still kept very carefully there, as well as many manuscripts of other Vaisnava writers. In fact there is an entire museum containing many of the personal effects of the Pancatattva and Their associates. This place, now known as Pat Bari, is managed by the followers of Rama dâsa Babaji. It can easily be reached by bus from Shyam bazaar.

Mahâprabhu first visited Ärî Bhâgavatâcârya on the 12th day of the dark fortnight of Caitra. "All glories to the source of the total manifestations of Brahman, Ärî Kèëòa, who has variagated pastimes. All glories to Lord Jagannatha, the incarnation of Nilacala and all glories to Ärî Gauranga the form of consiousness (Caitanya). Listen carefully about the incarnation of Kaliyuga, who inaugurated the yuga dharma of sankirtana, with every step and every word, saying, 'Kèëòa, Kèëòa, Kèëòa.' Know that this name of Kèëòa who is not Kèëòa (blackish), but whose complexion is like molten gold, is Gauranga and His appearance is a known fact predicted by the scriptures. With His associates who are His various limbs and weapons, He enjoys the ecstasy of sankirtan as Lord Gauranga. All glories to Gauracandra, whose sports are fully imbued with consiousness. He is the life and soul of the devotees, and He Himself is an incarnation of His devotee. In the company of Ärî Advaita, Ärînivasa and Hari dâsa, and with Nityananda by his side, he enjoys the pastimes of sankirtan. The Lord of the life of Gadadhara, the Lord of His eternal associates, the assembled devotees, the master of the world in the form of His own devotee." (Ärî Kèëòa-prema-tarangini)
