Bhakta Kavi Gopala Krishna
Bhakta Kavi Gopala Krishna
Description
About the Book

Bhakta Kavi Gopala Krishna (1784-1862), a devotee of Lord Krishna and a keen reader of Chaitanya Charitamrita, belonged to the Vaishnava Cult. He was a great exponent of 'Odissi Sangita' (devotional song), which is well-known in every town and village of Orissa. The clear expression of his words reflects the softness and purity of his heart just as the pure and sweet river water in the autumn season reflects the clear blue sky. A pure Vaishnavite, Gopala Krishna always avoided any fame and name. So, he did not have nay desire to assemble his poems in book forms. He became famous as pandit, devotee and scholar. Except the allegorical types, all other varieties are exhibited in the writings of Gopala Krishna.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
