May 26, 2011 - PRLog -- Sri Ramachandra Kaviraja, the son of Khandavasi Chiranjiva and Sunanda, was a disciple of Srinivasa Acharya and the most intimate friend of Narottama dasa Thakura, who prayed several times for his association. His youngest brother was Govinda Kaviraja. Srila Jiva Gosvami very much appreciated Sri Ramachandra Kaviraja’s great devotion to Lord Krishna and therefore gave him the title Kaviraja. Sri Ramachandra Kaviraja, who was perpetually disinterested in family life, greatly assisted in the preaching work of Srinivasa Acharya and Narottama dasa Thakura. He resided at first in Srikhanda but later in the village of Kumara-nagara on the bank of the Ganges.

Govinda Kaviraja was the brother of Ramachandra Kaviraja and youngest son of Chiranjiva of Srikhanda. Although at first a Sakta, or worshiper of Goddess Durga, he was later initiated by Srinivasa Acharya. Govinda Kaviraja also resided first in Srikhanda and then in Kumara-nagara, but later he moved to the village known as Teliya Budhari, on the southern bank of the river Padma. Since Govinda Kaviraja, the author of two books, Sangita-madhava and Gitamrita, was a great Vaishnava kavi, or poet, Srila Jiva Gosvami gave him the title Kaviraja. He is described in the Bhakti-ratnakara.
