Disappearance Day of Sri Paramesvari Dasa Thakura
Sri Paramesvara dasa Thakura appeared in a family of physicians. His Sripat is at Atapur, which was on the Canpandanga branch of the Howrah-Amrah rail line. Rail service on this line has been discontinued. Direct bus service is available from Howrah station; it is about a 2 hour journey from there.
Atapur was previously known as Visakhala. Sri Sri Radha-Govinda are still residing at his Sripat. In front of the temple are two Bakul trees and in between them is Paramesvara Thakura’s Samadhi mandira.
Sri Krsna das Kaviraj Gosvami has written: “Paramesvara das, said to be the fifth gopala of Krsna lila, completely surrendered to the lotus feet of Nityananda. Anyone who remembers his name, Paramesvara dasa, will get love of Krsna very easily.” [C.C. Adi 11.29]
Sri Kavi Karnapura Gosvami has written: namnarjunah sakha prag yo dasah paramesvarah, “Paramesvara dasa Thakura was previously the cowherd friend of Sri Krsna named Arjuna.”
Sri Vrindavana dasa Thakura has written:
nityananda jivan paramesvar das
jahar vigrahe nityananda vilasa
krsna das paramesvar das dvi jon
gopabhave hoi hoi kore sarvakkon
