Śrī Nimbāditya and Nimbārka Are Not the Same Person

In a previous article by Śrīla Narasiṅgha Mahārāja on Nimbārkācārya, there was mention of an article written by Śrīla Bhakti Prajñāna Keśava Mahārāja on the same topic. Some devotees have requested us to publish this article, which was originally written in Hindi and published in Bhāgavat Patrikā, Vol. 2, Issue 2, in July, 1956.

‘The Avatāra’ Biṣakiṣen

This article was first published in 1897 in Sajjana Toṣaṇī Vol.8, Issues 6, 7, 8 and 11 and was written by Śrī Nitya Sakha Mukhopadhyāya, an associate of Bhaktivinoda Thakura who lived in Balasore, Orissa. In his autobiographical letter, ‘Svalikhita Jīvanī, ’Bhaktivinoda Ṭhākura wrote about this famous event wherein he brought a bogus avatāra to justice in 1871. However this account by Nitya Sakha Mukhopadhyāya is undoubtedly the most detailed version of the incident. It is not known whether the author was personally present or if Bhaktivinoda himself had narrated it to him in detail. Throughout the article, the author refers to Bhaktivinoda as ‘Deputy Babu’ denoting his government position as the Deputy Magistrate of Jagannātha Purī. It is possible that, out of humility, the Ṭhākura had requested the author not to mention his name.
