Madhusudan Saraswati and Bhakti. I am occasionally asked to speak on bhakti here at Swami Rama Sadhaka Grama. One open secret here in this tradition is that Swami Rama himself was or claimed to be a reincarnation of this Madhusudan. Madhusudan Saraswati was an interesting personality whose scholarship was so multifaceted that there were few areas of traditional knowledge that he had not mastered.
Preceptors of Advaita
According to the information at hand, his forefathers escaped north India in the 12th century after the Muslim conquest and began by settling in Nabadwip. Later they moved to Faridpur in present-day Bangladesh. Madhusudan became renounced early in life and went to Benares to study Mimamsa. Some traditions have it that he first went to Nabadwip to study Navya-nyaya and there imbibed bhakti in the Chaitanyaite tradition.
He was born after Chaitanya Mahaprabhu’s disappearance, but there are nevertheless some clues in his writing that he went to Jagannath Puri, following what would have been the pilgrimage route taken by many young Bengali seekers of that day.

The Advaitasiddhi of Madhusudana Saraswati (Chapter I) (An Old and Rare Book)
I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Saturday, 09 April, Sri Akhandanand ji Maharaj also explained Madhusudhan Saraswati story in one of his work.
That story ended up by saying, after doing the Gopal Mantra Anusthan second time, he got Bhakti and went to write Bhakti Rasayan.
Friday, 14 October, Thank you for sharing this Sir. I was looking for sarasaati of “Bansi Vibhushit” sung by Pt. I can hear this song continuously.
I was not aware that this was written bt Madhusudan Saraswati. Thank you once again. Wednesday, 10 October, I was looking out for information on the Gudhartha Geeta by Madhusudan Saraswati and i came across your post. Can you explain what you have said in these lines But, as I wrote here before, it appears that Madhusudan Saraswati did not get Radha.

But let us at least give him credit for “getting” Krishna. Yes, Shri Gurusharanandaji is a very noted Sant of Braj and have heard him several times.
Saturday, 07 July, Dear Geeta, Thank you for commenting.
A full understanding of Krishna-bhakti can really only be had by understanding Radha and Krishna together. There are many posts about Radha on this blog, perhaps you could look at this one.
[Advaita-l] Madhusudana Saraswati
Monday, 23 July, Popular posts from this blog Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s meat eating – the complete story August 19, Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s meat eating has been a subject of some interest on this blog. The article I wrote in has been one of the most read on this site and still regularly attracts readers. I have said emphatically, “absolutely not,” because it is my feeling that this would completely destroy one of the principal themes of the book itself.
Bhaktivinoda Thakur’s autobiography is an extremely interesting work, especially to one who is directly in disciplic succession from him. It was written as a letter to his son and disciple, my guru Sri Lalita Prasad Thakur, when he was only madnusudana boy of It is hard to understand what the purpose of such a confession would have been in that context. Lalita Prasad was born and brought up in a household where there was a shuddha sattvika diet of prasad.
He had feelings of hero-worship …. This was written on the basis of Sundarananda Vidyavinode’s Madhueudana Kshetra and intended for a devotee audience, as it was done on a commission by disciples of Bhakti Promode Puri Maharaj.
It has never been published. I decided to put this on line since there was a discussion mahusudana Facebook on the subject and I thought I would revisit what I wrote here nearly twenty years ago. This is from chapter ten on temple renovations.
Even so, with the deplastering and restoration program of the Archaeological Survey of India, many more such carvings on the temple came to light after being hidden for centuries. For a devotee, the erotic depictions that cover the temple present something of a problem. If God is transcendental to this world, and if sexuality is the aspect of the materi…. Jiva Madhusudxna spends several sections of the Bhakti Sandarbha explaining that bhakti is free of the material qualities.
At the same time, we have an apparently insurmountable dogma: The Holy Dham is not within the material qualities of nature. So we msdhusudana to understand what that means.
The relevant verse here is the following from the Eleventh Canto, where K….
