Today is appearance of Srila Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, so here are drops of nectar...


Gopala Bhatta Gosvami, one of the six Gosvamis of Vrndavana, as a young boy received the mercy of Lord Caitanya. While touring south India, Lord Caitanya stayed four months at Gopala Bhatta's house. Gopala Bhatta Gosvami later joined Lord Caitanya's sankirtana movement. He proved himself an expert in Vaisnava scriptural regulations, wrote Vaisnava books, and established the temple of Sri Sri Radha-Ramana in Vrndavana.

(See Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 10.105.)
