– What favor did Sri Syamananda Prabhu do for the Vaishnava world?

– Syamananda was born in the Karana family on the full moon day in the month of April in a village called Dandakesvara in Orissa.

He spent his childhood at home and as soon as he became a youth he left home and accepted the renounced order of life. On seeing his renunciation, the devotees of Sri Gauranga Mahaprabhu, awarded him the name Dukhi Krsnadasa.

Realizing that it was useless to perform bhajana without first taking initiation, he took initiation from Sri Hrdaya-Caitanya, who was the dear disciple of Sri Gauridasa Pandita, an associate of the Lord.

After taking initiation and understanding that it is a disciple’s duty to serve his spiritual master, he stayed with his spiritual master and served him.

After some time, he took permission from his spiritual master and went to visit the holy places of Vrndavana. After arriving in Vrndavana, he soon received the mercy of the Goswamis, headed by Sri Raghunatha dasa.

The high standard of his renunciation was simply wonderful. Everyone was struck with wonder by seeing his renunciation.

He joined Srinivasa Acharya and Narottama Thakura in Bengal and lived there for a long time, delivering many foolish atheists by preaching devotional service to Krsna.

These topics are elaborately described in many Vaishnava books. We have a great desire to publish the glories of the great personalities in detail. (Sajjana-toshani 2/6)

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."
