Bakulacandadwip was the residence of the father of Shri Rupa and Shri Sanatana Goswamis, Shri Kumaradeva. It was here that Shri Rupa, Shri Sanatana and Shri Vallabha were born. It is also the place of Shri Chandrasekhar Acarya. Another name for Shri Chandrasekhar was Acarya Ratna. He was married to the sister of Shrimati Sacidevi, the mother of Lord Chaitanya, and thus he was considered as uncle. He was born in Shrihatta, but later moved to Navadwip. When Shri Jagan­nath Misra left this world, Shri Chandrasekhar took full responsibility for Mother Saci. He participated in the kirtans at Shrivas Bhavan, and Lord Chaitanya came and performed kirtan and plays at his residence. Chandrasekhar was with the Lord when He accepted sannyasa in Katwa, and he carried Mahaprabhu's message to Advaita Acarya in Santipur and the other devotees in Shri Navadwip. He also went to visit Mahaprabhu in Jagannath Puri, and sometimes, when Lord Chaitanya would come to Bengal, the Lord would affectionately reveal His travels in a dream to Chandrasekhar so Chandrasekhar could travel and meet him. Hare Krishna!
