Srila Sanatan Goswami
Srila Sanatan Goswami has been called the Bhakti-siddhantacharya, or the teacher of devotional doctrine, by which is meant the teacher of sambandha-jïana, or of the basic relations between Bhagavan (God), man and the world.
The founder of the Chaitanya Math, His Divine Grace Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur ‘Prabhupad’, whose various branches have spread throughout the world, mercifully gave His disciples a poem entitled “Who is a Vaishnava?”
The nectarean instructions which are found in this poem mention the teachings of Supreme Lord Sree Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to Srila Sanatan Goswami from Sree Chaitanya Charitamrita.
tai dushta mana nirjana bhajana
pracaricha chale kuyogi-vaibhava
prabhu sanatane parama yatane
shiksha dila yaha, cinta sei saba
So, wicked mind, you have deceptively been preaching nirjana-bhajana, the practice of the eremetic life, which is nothing more than a display, like that of a misleading yoga practitioner interested in the mystic powers. Study the teachings of the Supreme Lord to Srila Sanatan Goswami very carefully and meditate upon them.
Srila Bhakti Siddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur Prabhupad thus instructs us all to give great attention to the Supreme Lord’s teachings to Srila Sanatan Goswami, or those teachings which He gave to the world through Srila Sanatan Goswami.
