Today in Sri Mayapur Dham is the disappearance of Sri Gadadhara Pandita who is none different form Srimati Radhika and according to Sri Kavi Karnapura, he explains in the Gaura-ganodesa-Dipika that Sri Gadadhara Pandita was the daughter of Vrsabhanu-Srimati Radharani in Vraja-Lila. This is also proven in Svarupa Damodara’s notes and Sri Vasudeva Ghosa Thakura’s songs.

Sri Caitanya Caritamrta explains that:

“No one can define Gadadhara Pandita’s traits or intense love. As a result, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is also known as Gadadhara Prananatha, or “the life and soul of Gadadhara Pandita.” “No one can express how kind the Lord is to Gadadhara Pandita, but Gadaira Gaura, “the Lord Gauranga of Gadadhara Pandita,” is how the Lord is known. When Isvara Puri visited Nabadwipa Mayapura, he resided at Sri Gopinatha Acarya’s residence for a few months, according to the Caitanya Bhagavata.

Gadadhara Pandita was a thoughtful and collected young man from the start. He was quiet, renounced, and enjoyed his alone time. Isvara Puri was quite fond of Gadadhara then and tutored him from his book Krsna-lilamrta. Gaurasundara, on the other hand, appeared to be fickle, unsteady, and whimsical as a child. When they were in school, he would annoy Gadadhara by asking witty questions to perplex Gadadhara.

This bothered Gadadhara’s intellect and studies; thus, he didn’t enjoy it. As an outcome, he had no option but to keep Gaurahari at arm’s length. But he couldn’t stand being apart from God any longer. Gadadhara Pandita was caught in a difficult situation. “Gadadhara!” the Lord exclaimed. I will soon become such a great Vaisnava that even Brahma and Siva will bow to me.

On the auspicious occasion of His disappearance day, let us pray to Sri Gadadhara Pandita to kindly bestow his mercy upon us and engage us in his devotional service. Devotees in Sri Dham Mayapur observe a mid-day fast to honor His disappearance of Gadadhara Pandita.
