Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:
The Spiritual Identity of Shripada Madhavendra Puri is described by Shrila† Kavi Karnapura in his classic Vedic scripture Shri Gaura Gannodesha Dipika Verse† 22:
†"...Madhavendra Puri was the incarnation of a kalpa-vriksha tree† (wish-fulfilling desire tree) in the abode of Shri Shri Radha Krishna in Vraja† (Vrindavana). This tree bears as its fruits the mellows of servitude to Lord† Krishna, friendship with Lord Krishna, parental love for Lord Krishna, and conjugal† love for Lord Krishna."
Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! Jaya Gauranga Dharma! Jaya Shrila† Prabhupada! Pranams and Blessings!
