– What beneficial activity did Srila Krsnadasa Kaviraja Goswami perform for the world?

– Kaviraja Goswami was a learned scholar of all Sastras. This is easily realized by reading his books Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Govinda-lilamrta, and his Saranga Rangada commentary on Sri Krsna-karnamrta.

Srila Kaviraja Goswami was a great devotee and one of the principal scholars in the sampradaya of Sri Caitanyadeva. We do not need to prove this statement. The books written by Kaviraja Goswami are proof of this. One becomes struck with wonder by seeing the unlimited glories of Kaviraja.

Sri Caitanya-caritamrta is an extremely wonderful book, compiled out of compassion for persons who have no knowledge of Sanskrit.

In our opinion, if Kaviraja Goswami did not exhibit such compassion, then persons who are ignorant of scriptural knowledge and philosophy would never know the eternal Vaishnava religion instructed by Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Who knows, what would have been their fate.

Kaviraja! You are glorious! Learned and ignorant devotees of the Vaishnava sampradaya are indebted to you. How much can we sing about your glories with one mouth? The pure Vaishnavas are always singing your qualities. O Kaviraja! Which atheist will not like to take shelter of your lotus feet if he remembers your perfect words? You have said in Caitanya-caritamrta (Madhya 2.87):

"If one does not understand in the beginning but continues to hear again and again, the wonderful effects of Lord Caitanya’s pastimes will bring love for Krsna. Gradually one will come to understand the loving affairs between Krsna and the gopis and other associates of Vrndavana. Everyone is advised to continue to hear over and over again in order to greatly benefit."

On the strength of such perfect words, many foolish persons in the Vaishnava sampradaya are becoming greatly qualified to understand Sri Caitanya-caritamrta. O Kaviraja! We offer innumerable obeisances at your lotus feet. (Sajjana-toshani 2/10-11)

Natural Brotherhood (Bhaktivinoda Thakura):

BhaktiVinoda Thakura

"Gradually, when the offensive portions of the established religions are destroyed, there will be no more differences in the bhajana performed by the various Sampradayas nor any quarrel between them.

Then as brothers, the people of all castes and countries will spontaneously chant the Holy Names of the Supreme Lord together.

At that time, no one will hate anyone or consider others dogeaters; nor will anyone be overwhelmed by the pride of high birth.

The living entities will not forget the principle of natural brotherhood."
