The Life & Precepts of Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati
Srila Prabhupada Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Thakura made his appearance in Purusottam Ksetra (Jagannatha Puri) in the state of Orissa, at 3:30 in the afternoon on Friday, the 6th of February, 1874. He was born in his family home, which was next to the holy site called the Narayan-chhata of Sri Jagannatha Temple, and which always reverberated with the chanting of the holy name. He was the fourth son of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura and Srimati Bhagavati Devi. Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura firmly established the concept of pure Vaisnavism in the hearts of many educated and spiritually inquisitive people of Bengal in the latter part of the nineteenth Century.
