Sri Advaitacharya's Descendents Donate Rare Vaisnava Manuscripts to BRC

BRC was blessed recently by a generous donation of a very special collection of over 40 rare manuscripts. They were given by Sri M K Goswami family of Bangalore, originally from Shantipur. They are direct descendants from Sri Advaitacarya (17th generation.)

This donation of very precious and rare Vaisnava manuscripts included Govinda Lilamrita by Ragunath Bhatta Goswami, Padyavali of Rupa Goswami, Stavavali of Ragunath das Goswami, and complete manuscripts of Chaitanya Charitamrita on handmade paper. They are in good to excellent condition. 

The collection was gifted in memory of Sri Nanda Gopala Goswami and Nirmalya Rani Goswami, Mr. Goswami's revered parents. 


After a tour of the BRC facility and library, Mr. Goswami was extremely satisfied that he had made a good decision to place his manuscripts in our care. “A great spiritual feeling was accrued after visiting the library,” he wrote in the guest book.
