No-one should forget : today is the sacred disappearance day of Srila Rupa Gosvamipad! I have just posted Rupa Gosvami's sucak kirtan and will be posting more biographical data and nectarine narrations throughout the day, so stay tuned. Keep an eye on the Rupa Gosvami thread!

prabhur vidhau prAg iva loka-sRSTim“Within the course of time, topics about the amorous sports of sacred rapture in Vrindavana were lost. Sriman Mahaprabhu, being eager to reveal these pastimes, infused His unique potency into the heart of Rupa Gosvami, and manifested them again, just as He had manifested wisdom in the heart of Brahma at the dawn of creation.”(Caitanya Caritamrita, Madhya-lila, 19.1)

OK, I finally got together some biographical data on Gauridas Pandit as well. His disappearance day was yesterday (contrary to Dvadasi the day before, as it was in the calendar until now, I just double-checked it and found this out).
