Kagaz Pukuria


This place is situated in a village near Denapur. Ramacandra Khan, who was ill-behaved and attached to prostitutes resided here. Being envious of Shri Namacarya Haridas Thakur, he engaged one young an beautiful prostitute named Hera to disturb the Thakur's bhajan. But after hearing the pure chanting of the Holy Names of Krishna by Haridas, Hera's heart became free from all contamination and she became a great Vaisnavi devotee. Many saintly people came from far and wide to have her darshan. Some time afterwards, Shri Nityananda Prabhu, while touring, came to this village while redeeming all of Bengal. Ramacandra Khan disrespected Him, so Nityananda Prabhu left this place and went away. Because of his great offense, the next day the Muslims attacked and Ramacandra Khan as well as his whole family were killed. As a result of the activities the Muslims performed, the entire village of Ramacandra Khan became further contaminated. Hare Krishna!
