Nityaanda Gauranga Hare Krishna
Lord Nityananda(also called lovingly as Nitai) and Lord Gauranga(Called lovingly as Gaura) are the Supreme Masters and Owners of This transcendental Gaura Dhaam. Due to Their sweet will the Dhaam becomes un-manifest and again it manifests. Navadvipa Dhaam was revealed due to the mercy of Shrila Sacchidananada Bhaktivinoda Thakura(Shrila Kedarnathha Dutt)
Then His son Shrila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarswati Thakura Prabhupada took on the work of revealing the pastime places of Lord Gauranga and it was his disciple A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Shrila Prabhupada (founder Acharya ISKCON) who revealed went to the West and revealed the dhaam to the entire world.
A few words about the great devotee of Lord Gauranga: Shrila Bhaktivinoda Thakura
SRILA Sac-cid-ananda Bhaktivinoda Thakura appeared in the 19th century at a critical, historical juncture, when the teachings of Lord Chaitanya had been so much disparaged and depreciated that the Thakura, despite eight years of inquiry and endeavor, was unable to secure a copy of Shri Chaitanya-caritamrita (the most important biographical work on the philosophy and life of Lord Chaitanya) even in manuscript form. Lord Chaitanya's pure teachings had been virtually lost, though only a few hundred years had elapsed since His disappearance. These teachings were preserved solely by a handful of reclusive renunciates, who were not actively preaching His message, except by their living example. Although the Thakura is especially noted for his having re-discovered the site of Lord Chaitanya's birth, in fact, he practically re-discovered and re-established Lord Chaitanya's movement, which was obscured by the cultural and religious chauvinism of the ruling British, and discredited by the perverse and useless activities of a number of sahajiya (deviant) sects and other groups with motivated, concocted philosophies. He revived Lord Chaitanya's message, published the writings of the Gosvamis (Lord Chaitanya's principal apostles), and proved the timeless importance and relevance of these teachings to the modern world.
