The Twelfth Vilasa


All glories to Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Nityananda Prabhu, Advaita Acarya and their associates. Please be kind to this poor soul. All glories to the merciful listeners. Who could possibly describe all the wonderful disciples of Shri Thakura Mahasaya. Although I am unqualified and ignorant, I shall try to describe some of the branches and twigs who descended from the tree of Shri Narottama dasa Thakura. Please forgive my frailties and bestow your mercy upon me as I am always at your service.

There is no limit in describing the qualities of all these Vaishnavas. Their fame spread all over the world. I desire to worship them and sing their glories without any attraction towards material pleasure.

Now I give further description of the branches and twigs of Narottama dasa Thakura. Ramakrishna Acarya has a big branch having many disciples. Kanakalatika is the wife of Shri Acarya. She is a devoted wife and a great devotee of Krishna. Radhakrishna Acarya, the eldest son of Acarya died at an early age. Radhakrishna Cakravarti of Vetula is a great devotee. Shri Svarupa Cakravarti of Husanapura is a sincere servant of Shri Govinda. Shri Gopala Cakravarti of Kumarapura whose topic is on everyone's lips. There is no limit of the branches and twigs to whom Shri Krishna Chaitanya is the life. Ganganarayana is the branch of Shri Thakura Mahasaya. Ganganarayana got the title of Shri Thakura Cakravarti. Everyone used to sing his glory even today in Vrndavana. He has many branches and twigs of disciples. Narahari, wife of Shri Cakravarti is the mother of Vishnupriya. Krishnapriya, daughter of Vishnupriya is favored by Shri Radharani of Shri Radha Kunda. Shri Krishna Carana Cakravarti is the youngest son of Ramakrishna Acarya. How can I sing the glory of Shri Krishnacarana. I am trying to present a brief account of his branches and twigs. Rama Krishna and Ganganarayana are the same entity. Shri Thakura Cakravarti has no son. Acarya realizing his desire, favored Ganganarayana by giving a son. And that son is Shri Krishnacarana, son of Shri Acarya. Shri Krishnacarana became a great scholar in a short time. Shri Madhusudana Cakravarti is another branch to whom Ganganarayana is the life. Raghudeva Cakravarti is a great devotee of Shri Cakravarti Thakura. I restrain myself from narrating all the branches and twigs of Shri Cakravarti Thakura. The branches of Shri Mahasaya's disciples are all abodes of exemplary qualities who were always absorbed in the joy of sankirtana. I have no capacity to describe the transcendental pastimes of Shri Thakura Mahasaya, therefore I am fully dependent on the mercy of the Vaishnava Goswamis. Thus listen attentively to the narration of Narottama Vilasa by Narahari.
