“I offer my respectful obeisances to Jagannatha das Babaji, who is respected by the entire Vaisnava community and who discovered the place where Lord Caitanya appeared.” (Srila Jagannatha Pranati)
Srila Jagannatha das Babaji, the spiritual master of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura, confirmed Bhaktivinoda Thakura’s discovery of the birthplace of Lord Caitanya. Upon arriving at the birthplace, Jagannatha das Babaji, though blind and crippled, leaped high into the air and began chanting the names of Krishna and dancing.
Srila Prabhupada explains the glorious position of Srila Jagannatha dasa Babaji.
