Jhamatpur is within the district of Vardaman and is the place of Shri Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami. From Katwa station on the eastern railway one comes to Sellar station. From there, one can further purify himself by chanting Hari Nama during the two kilometer's walk to get to Jhamatpur, where Shri Krishnadas Kaviraj lived with his elder brother.Once, in Jhamatpur, Shri Abhiram Goswami, who had the power to grace anyone with Krishna prema whom he hit with his whip, held an ecstatic kirtan in which the glories of Mahaprabhu were sung. During that kirtan, he began speaking the glories of Shri Nityananda Prabhu. At that time Shriram Kettamindas, the elder brother of Shri Krishnadas Kaviraj, spoke disrespectfully about Prabhu Nityananda. Shri Abhiram Goswami became angry at Nityananda's being insulted, and left immediately. Because of His brother's offense, Shri Krishnadas Kaviraj also became angry, and that same day he left this place and went to Vrindavan.


Shri Nityananda Prabhu, understanding Krishnadas Kaviraj's great and devout faith in Him, in a dream blessed him fully and showered him with His mercy. Then He gave him

a direct vision of Shri Vrinda­van Dham, Shri Govinda, Shri Gopinath, Shri Madan Mohan, and granted him prema bhakti. He also empowered him to compose literatures on devotion. Hare Krishna!
