Today is disappearance of Shyamananda Pandit.
Shyamananda Pandit (Dukhi) was born in Darendra Bahadurpur, Orissa. All his brothers and sisters died in infancy, so his parents named him Dukhi. When he was a teenager Dukhi decided to take initiation from Hridoy Chaitanya, who lived in Ambika Kalna, Bengal.
Hridoy Chaitanya was a disciple of Gauridas Pandit who was one of MahaPrabhu’s closest associates.
Dukhi travelled all the way to Ambika Kalna and surrendered to Hridoy Chaitanya, being very pleased by his sweet words, he named him Krishna das. After initiating him in an auspicious time, Krishna das served his spiritual master very diligently. Pleased with his bhakti, determination and intelligence, Hridoy Chaitanya instructed him to go to Vrindavan to seek guidance of Srila Jiva Goswami.
