Because of this offense at the lotus feet of Bhakti devi, who is very dear to Me, Mukunda is not a recipient of My mercy. Without Bhakti devi, there can be no delight in My darshan, and as the injunctions of the scriptures have clearly delineated, all actions however grand and meritorious do not bear fruit if they are without devotion.”

When Mukunda heard this stern reproach, he reflected that he had committed an offense at the lotus feet of Bhakti devi, who manifests devotional service in the hearts and minds of pure devotees. Thinking that he had committed a grevious offense and that he had no other alternative, he decided to take his life. At that time he asked Shrivas Pandit to request the Lord whether he would have the opportunity, even’in a future life, to receive the Lord’s mercy.Hearing this request from Shrivas Pandit, Mahaprabhu told him to tell Mukunda that he would have to wait one million births to receive His mercy. When Mukunda heard that he would receive the Lord’s mercy in one million lifetimes, he became so happy that he began to spontaneously dance and cry in ecstasy. Jumping up and down he repeated over and over again, “A million births! Only a million births! I will be delivered in only a million births!” When Lord Chaitanya heard and saw this manifestation of Mukunda’s devotion, His heart melted in compassion. The Lord called him near and blessed him. He told Mukunda, “All your offenses have at once been destroyed by your having firm conviction in My words and by having unshakable faith in Me.”
…Now the birth place of Basudev Mukunda (Basudev-Mukunda Dham) is on the guidance of ISKCON Chittagong.
Soon ISKCON will build a VEDIC TEMPLE there.

Dhananjaya Pandit

“Dhananjaya Pandit was a very rare soul. Nityananda Prabhu was always present in his heart.” [C.B. Antya 5.733]
His Sripat is at Sitalgram, Mangal Kota Khana, Barddhaman district. There is a railway station at Kaicor on the metre gauge line from Katwa to Barddhaman. If one gets down at Kaicor, then it is about a twenty minute walk to the village of Sitalgram.
Dhananjaya Pandita also stayed at Sancra Pancra for some time. According to the opinion of some he was born in the village of Jargram, within the district of Cattagram. He was present during Mahaprabhu’s sankirtana pastimes in Navadvipa. After returning from Vrindavana, he also worshiped the Deities at Jalandigram. At present the Deities of Sri Gopinatha, Sri Sri Nitai-Gaura and Sri Damodara Salagramsila are being worshipped there. He has no descendents, but he had a brother by the name Sri Sanjaya, whose son was Sri Rama Kanai Thakura. His Sripat is located at Mulukgrama (near Bolpur). Sanjaya was perhaps the disciple of Dhananjaya Pandita. The present sevakas at Sitalgram are the descendents of Dhananjaya Pandit’s disciple.Dhananjaya Pandita took part in many of Lord Caitanya’s kirtana pastimes in Navadvipa. On the order of Lord Caitanya, he traveled widely and preached Krsna consciousness. He is mentioned in Sri Caitanya-caritamrta as being among the intimate servants of Lord Nityananda Prabhu. (See Sri Caitanya- caritamrta, Adi-lila 11.31)
His disappearance is on the eighth day of the bright fortnight, in the month of Kartik.
He was born in Roajan near Chittagong.
Jagatchandra Goswami

One of the associates of Mahaprabhu, Jagatchandra Goswami appeared at Binazuri (adjacent to Raojan) in Chittagong.

The daughter of king Brishavanu in Braja, Srimati Radharani took birth as Srila Gadadhar Pandit in Gour Pastimes. Srila Gadadhara Pandit was an intimate associate of Mahaprabhu. Mahaprabhu couldn’t live even a single moment without Gadadhara. After completing the sweeten pastimes of Lord through 48 years, he disappeared himself in the deities of Sri Tota Gopinath. The deity was served by Srila Gadadhara Pandit. Gadadhara was the great disciple of Pundarik Vidyanidhi . He also took birth here in Chittagong.
