Kulinagram

 

Kulinagram is located east of Jaigram station. Withia this town is a temple of Lord Jagannath. Kulinagram is famous as the residence of Shri Satyaraj Khan, Shri Rarnananda Vasu, Shri Sankara, Shri Vidyananda, Shri Radhanath Vasu, etc. Shri Rarnananda Vasu was a dear associate of Mahaprabhu. His father's name was Shri Laksmanath Vasu, who was also known as Shri Satyaraj Khan. His father's name was Shri Maladar Vasu, who was also known as Shri Gunaraj Khan. Gunaraj was a well-known poet who wrote a very famous book called Shri Krishna Vijaya. Mahaprabhu once quoted a sloka from this book: nanda-nandan krishna mora prananath, and said, "O Gunaraj, by this one glorious line of yours, I am sold to you." Both Shri Rarnananda Vasu and his father, Shri Satyaraj Khan, met Lord Chaitanya in Jagannath Puri during Ratha Yatra. This is explained in Shri Chaitanya Charitamrita. On the order of Mahaprabhu, they each year would bring the silk ropes for pulling the chariot of Lord Jagannath. Haribol!
