ri Vansivadananda Thakura appeared on the full moon day of the month of Caitra. Within Kuliya exist
the villages, Teghari.
Beciyava, Bedrapara and Cinedanga. The sons of Srikar Chattopadhyay
moved from Bilvagram (Patuli) to Beciyanagram. Sri Sri Yudhisthir
Chattopadhyay had three sons: Madhava das (Chakari Chattopadhyoy),
Sri Hari dasa (Tin Kari) and Sri Krsna Sampati (Dui Kari).
When Mahaprabhu came from Puri to have darshan of his mother and
the river Ganges he stayed for seven days in the house of Madhava dasa at Kulia. At this time
he excused Devananda Pandit along with all of the offenses of
everyone else. Therefore the place came to be known as 'Aparadh
Sri Vamsi Thakura appeared in the home of Sri Madhava dasa. His
mother's name was Srimati Candrakala Devi. Vansivadananda is the
incarnation of Sri Krsna's flute. On the day of his birth
Mahaprabhu was present in the house of Sri Madhava das, along with
Sri Advaita Acarya. Madhava was very devoted to Mahaprabhu and
Prabhu was also very affectionate to him and his son Vansi. Vansi
das was present at Navadwipa when Acarya Prabhu came there.
Vamsi was engaged in the service of Visnupriya and was the
receptacle of her unlimited mercy. One time Visnupriya devi and
Vansi Thakura decided to give up taking food and water, there not
being any point in maintaining their bodies which were so racked
with the pain of separation from Mahaprabhu. Sri Caitanya
Mahaprabhu, however, didn't approve of this and manifested Himself
before them. Then He requested them not to behave so rashly, and
then instructed them both to worship His Deity form in order to
mitigate their feelings of separation.
After Visnupriya's disappearance Vamsivadana brought this Deity of
Mahaprabhu from Mayapura to Kulia. This Deity of Mahaprabhu is very
beautiful and is still being worshipped in the present town of
Navadwip. The name of the temple and Deity is Dhameswara. It is
said that the name Vansivadananda is carved into the underneath of
the base of the Deity.
When his descendent, Ramacandra Gosvami came to live at Baghna Para
by the mercy of Jahnava Mata, the worship of the Deity passed into
the hands of the residents of Malancha.
There was a Deity of Gopinath at Kulic worshipped by Vamsi's
ancestors and he personally installed a Deity of Pranaballabha at
their home in Kulia. Where these Deities are at present is unknown.
Vamsi Thakur resided at Bilvagram for some time with his relatives
there. He had two sons, Sri Caitanya dasa and Sri Nityananda dasa.
The two sons of Caitanya dasa were Sri Ramacandra and Sri
Sacinandana. Ramacandra was the adopted son and disciple of Jahnava
Mata. He established the worship of Sri Sri Kanai Balai at Baghna
Para. As he never married the worship passed on to his brother
Sacinandana whose descendants are the resident Gosvamis there.
Sri Vansivadananda was a poet and composer of songs. He composed
one song about the Lord's acceptance of sannyasa based on the
lamentations of Sri Sacimata and Sri Visnupriya. Some say that
Ramai (Ramacandra Gosvami), the son of Caitanya dasa (Vansi
Thakura's son) Gosai was an incarnation of Vansi Thakura.
