Appearance day of Srila Gadadhara Pandita

(Dandavats.com) – Sri Kavi Karnapura states in Gaura Ganodessa Dipika that in Vraja lila Gadadhara Pandit is the daughter of King Vrsabhanu-Srimati Radharani. Gadad­hara Pandit served as Lord Gaura’s chief assistant during His Navadvipa-lila. Sri-Sri Radha Krishna in Vrndavana appear as Gaura-Gadadhara to perform pastimes in Navadvipa in the forest groves beside the Ganges.

sadya gaura-prema-lakshmih shri-gadadhara-panditah
radham anugata yat tal lalitapy anuradhika
atah pravishad esha tam gaura-candrodaye yatha

The incarnation of love who previously was the queen of Vrindavan, Radha, is now the beloved of Gaura named Srila Gadadhara Pandit. Svarupa Damodar himself indicated that he was Vraja’s goddess of fortune, the Lakshmi who was previously the beloved of Shyamasundara in Vrindavan. She today has become the goddess of fortune of love for Gaura and is known as Srila Gadadhara Pandit. Lalita, who is also known as Anuradha, is Radha’s closest friend and confidante. She has also entered into Gadadhara, as was shown in the play Chaitanya-candrodaya.
(Gaura-ganoddesha-dipika 147-150)

“Gadadhara, the best of the Brahmanas, is the incarnation of both Srimati Radharani and Lalita-gopi. These two are the transcendental potencies of the Lord, and since the Lord is in one sense not different from His potencies, it may be said that He is present wherever His potencies go. For this reason, it may be said that Lord Hari is also present in the body of Gadadhara Pandita. Gadadhara is, therefore, the incarnation of three persons: Srimati Radharani, Lalita-gopi, and Lord Hari.”

Gaura-ganoddesha-dipika

“No one can describe the characteristics and ecstatic love of Gadadhara Pandit. Therefore another name for Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is Gadadhara Prananatha, “the life and soul of Gadahara Pandit.” (Caitanya-caritamrta)

Bhaktivinoda Thakura has written:

smara gaura gadadhara kelikalam
bhava gaura gadadhara paksacaram
srnu gaura gadadhara carukatham
bhaja godruma-kanana kunjavidhum

Remember the wonderful pastimes of Gaura and Gadadhara. Become a servant of Gaura and Gadadhara. Listen to the beautiful narrations concerning Gaura and Gadadhara, and worship Lord Gaura, the beautiful moon of the groves of Godruma.

Sri Gadadhara Pandita is Sri Radha and helps Lord Caitanya who is Krsna Himself to appreciate the love of Sri Radha. Lord Gauranga is in the mood of Sri Radha and this is the most confidential reason for His descend to relish this love that He eternally relishes in Goloka Vrindavana

Siddha Krsna das of Govardhana (a highly empowered and bonafide Gaudiya Vaisnava) has given us something very deep and important about the noon pastimes of Gaura Gadadhara:
