íRi Bhugarbha Goswami;


As there is not much mention of Shri Lokanatha Goswami in Baisnab literatures, similarly there is little material on Shri Bhugarbha Goswami, who was his very close friend. Following Mahaprabhu's order, they both came to live at Vrajadham. Their hearts were inseparable. Shri Bhugarbha Goswami was the disciple of Shri Gadadhar Pandit. He in turn had a number of disciples, namely: Shri Chaitanya Das (the pujari of Shri Govinda deb), Shri Mukundananda Cakravarti, Premi Krishna das, etc. In the Shri Chaitanyacharitamrita, it is mentioned that Shri Bhugarbha das and Shri Bhagavat das came to Brndavan and took up residence there. [C. C. Adi 12.81]


In the Gaurganoddeshdipika, Shri Bhugarbha Gosvami's identity as Premamanjari in Krishna lila, has been revealed. His disappearance is on the 14th day of the bright fortnight in the month of Kartik. His samadhi is near the samadhi of Shri Rupa Gosvami, within the courtyard of Shri RadhaDamodar temple. Shrila Bhugarbha Gosvami and Shrila Lokanath Goswami were one, only their bodies were different.††††††††††††††††††††††† [Bhakti Ratnakara]
