About Srila Narottam Das Thakur: Srila Narottama Dasa Thakura is best of the pure devotes in Lord Chaitanya’s disciplic line.The following excerpts from Indradyumna Swami’s Dairy Chapter 5.14 give a brief introduction of life and glory of Srila Narottam Das Thakur:
“Once while having kirtan with His associates in the village of Rama Keli, Lord Caitanya began calling out, “Narottam! Narottam! Narottam!” and fell to the ground unconscious. When He awoke He revealed that soon a great devotee named Narottam das would take birth and would be instrumental in carrying on His mission. Mahaprabhu told the devotees that He would deposit his prema (love of God) in the Padmavati, and at a certain time Narottam das would take bath there and attain pure love of God. Years later, when Narottam das was still a boy, he bathed in the exact spot where Mahaprabhu had deposited His prema and immediately he was overwhelmed with ecstatic love for Krsna. Imbued with that mercy, he was constantly floating in the ocean of love of God and was empowered to spread that love everywhere.
One of Narottam das Thakur’s major contributions was organizing the inaugural Gaura-purnima festival, the yearly observance of Lord Caitanya’s appearance, at Keturi, with many important Vaisnavas of the time attending, including Lord Nityananda’s wife, Jahnava mata. At that historic event, Narottam das Thakur installed six Deities – five Krsna Deities and one pure gold Lord Caitanya Deity.”
