Translation and purport by A.C.Bhaktivedanta Swami
jagadish pandit haya jagat-pavana
krishna-premamrita varse, yena varsa ghana
Jagadish Pandit, the fifteenth branch of Lord Nityananda's followers, was the deliverer of the entire world. Devotional love of Krishna showered from him like torrents of rain.
Descriptions of Jagadisha Pandit are available from Chaitanya-bhagavat, Adi-lila, Chapter Six, and Chaitanya-charitamrita, Adi-lila, Chapter Fourteen. He belonged to the village of Yasada-grama, in the district of Nadia near the Chakadaha railway station. His father, the son of Bhatta Narayana, was named Kamalaksa. Both his father and mother were great devotees of Lord Vishnu, and after their death, Jagadisha, with his wife Duhkhini and brother Mahesha, left his birthplace and came to Sri Mayapur to live in the company of Jagannath Mishra and other Vaishnavas. Lord Chaitanya asked Jagadisha to go to Jagannath Puri to preach the Hari-Nama-sankirtan movement. After returning from Jagannath Puri, on the order of Lord Jagannath he established Deities of Jagannath in the village of Yasada-grama. It is said that when Jagadisha Pandit brought the Deity of Jagannath to Yasada-grama, he tied the heavy Deity to a stick and thus brought Him to the village. The priests of the temple still show the stick used by Jagadisha Pandit to carry the Jagannath Deity.
