Baba Shri Buddhanath Das lives his thirteenth birth in this life as a servant
and devotee of Shri Achyuta. In his previous birth (12th birth), about 500 years
ago, his name was Ram Das, who was the disciple of
PanchaSakhaa and SadaGoswami. During that age, Shri Arakhsita Das had
described all the births of Ram Das in his work - Bhaaba Manjusaa
(a part is given below- oriya script, audio clip, and selective english
transcript). He further had written
about the future 13th birth of Ram Das, who presently is known as Buddhanth Das.
Similar hints and identifications were also given
by Shri Achyutananda in his works
- Trikaala Pothi, Jaiphula Malika, and Mukhabandha (preface) of
Pushpaka. These contemporaneous seers had given the birth place, name
of parents, and identification of Baba and Garoi Khsetra about 500 years
The presence of Sweta Bata and
Subhadra Daaru was
also identified by these seers in their works all of which are proved to be a
lives of Baba are also
confirmed by Shri Achyuta via his Taamrapothi (copper
oracle). The question was put by some of the followers and is a private
information. Baba hardly discloses publicly what he is or who he was. Only to a
few, he at times told a few of his lives or shown some changed forms, or
instructed through his favorite medium of dream. This section is only for
non-disclaimers and is based on trust, and modesty. No argument, or
cross-question will be entertained. We strictly discourage any further
arguments here. If
for any reason one wishes to confirm, one can go through old literature or take
Taamrapothi. However, sincere interests with modesty are

Your feelings and attention was on the
supreme feet and in your heart he was dwelling. You were passing time in
Dhyaanayoga and carried feelings of being his servant (Daasa).
Satya Yuga disappeared
with time and
Tretaya came in.
birth in Tretaya. Name: Bhaabagraahi
Feelings were fixed on him and his awareness was there. The
birth was in the beginning of Tretaya. Your name was Bhaabagraahi and
baanijya (business) was occupation. Father's name
was Baalakrusna and
Passed the life as a houshold man and
you realized Brahmarupa (form of God) with
Bhaava (devoted pure feelings). The first part of Tretaya thus came to end.
birth in Tretaya. Name: Madhukanda
Second birth in Tretaya was in Gopaalakula
(milkman's family); you came with Sradhaa (faith and feelings). Always
were you drowned with feelings and yourself were a living form of feelings. In
beginning you did not seek Guru nor God nor had a Tilak (sandalwood mark on
forhead) and were out of way due to wealth and luxury- in this way you lost your
youth. The Bhabamahi (supreme- may be Guru) warned and
you conscious of your
virtues. Then you left the worldly form and took the form of a devotee. Finally
you saw the fearless lotus
feet and got
Brahmagyaana due to Yoga.
Your name was Madhukanda and father's name was Jagaananda.
Third birth in Tretaya. Name:
You were born in fisherman's family and the
name of the place was Avanti. Your form was that of fisherman and you did fishery and lost the previous
Shree (greatness). At age of 30 the moon (symbolic for
knowledge) rose again. You saw the fish form of Hari (Meenarupa) in
water and lost your negative attitudes. Performed Tripura Sundari Mahavidya
and Tripura Maala (rosary) became your neck's necklace. Your heart was filled with proper devotion
and Mother blessed you in the banks of Ganga in Yoga form. In this way your days
passed and you breathed your last in Brundaavana.
Fourth birth in Tretaya. Name: Nala
In seventh birth (of Achyuta?) company was
with seven friends (PanchaSakhha, Arakhita Das and others) and you also were
there. You were carrying the name Nala.
Towards the end of Tretaya, you
saw the Bhaabagraahi form of Shri Raama. With feelings you
achieved the supreme realization. Yogaasana, Yogadhyaana,
feelings of Yogi was there and you achieved the unachievable (Abidyaa saadhilu tuhi)
with your NalaDanda. You became similar to Trikaalagyani (one who knows
past, present, and future) due to virtues of Tretaya Tripuravidya.
Future and past yoga, Upayoga (derivative of yoga), Bhabayoga
(world yoga), Taarana vidya (to save), Tarana vidya (to stop
something), Dasadhaa vidya (10 vidyas) everything was achieved by you.
You were carrying the name Nala and were born at the feet of fearless
Birth 6: Sadaananda
Firsth birth in Dwaapara, Name: Sadaananda
Father's name was Daitari and mother's
name was Pikaaranti (?). Our eighth was in Gopapura. You were born in the
Gopaala Kula and enjoying the sport with
sixteen thousand gopaala children. Your parents had given you the name
Sadaananda, Gopaalas were calling you as Kakutua (making
friendly fun), Shri
Krusna used to call you as Madhu, Madhu out of feelings.
Living in this world with worldly pleasure, you always had in your hearth great
feelings and devotion for Krusna. His form was stable inside your hearth.
First part of Dwaapara was complete, Gopaalas were sad as
Krusna went to Mathuraa.
Birth 7: ShriDhara (second birth in Dwaapara)
Bhabana Bhenita Dekhuthile Bhakta Eka Krusna Rupa Taara
Tejile Chakri Rupa Hele, Chakraakaara Kalebara
The devotees all around were
looking at one form whose name was Krusna
He left his flute,
raised the disc (Sudarshana), and took Chakri-Rupa thenafter.
When Krusna took the Chakradhaari
form, you took second birth in Dwaapara. Your name was ShriDhara and occupation
was Dutachaara (messenger). Your father's name was Krupaajala and
mother's name was Maadhavi. That time, also was the ninth birth of
Sudama in form of Krusna's
friend- He was only a part of Krusna and was perfect in nabadhaa
Birth 8: Kalaa (third birth in Dwaapara)
You took birth in Mlettcha Bhoi kula
(lower caste who do cleaning) in the Ajaamara clan with blemished body.
You were leading mean life doing mean Karma. The day when you saw his
form your Yoga was revived. As a household man you passed your life as his
(Krusna's) wretched servant and found the feelings back for him. Thus passed
Birth 9: ShriDhara
After Dwaapara ended and KaliYuga
entered, in KaliYuga your first birth was in Shri Khsetra (Puri and
sorrounding). You had the Yoga with you and whatever you had wished from the
feet of fearless assurance (Krusna) in Gopapura, he himself bestowed
everything on you. Yogasana, Dhyaana, everthing was there and you
were a Brahmachaari holding all the previous virtues. Your birth was in
Supakaara clan (servants of Jagannath who prepare Kaibalya Maha
Prasaad). Your name was ShriDhara and Lord Jagannath was tasting
your hand-made food (Mahaprasaad). Your mother's name was Ambikaa and father's
name was Shashi and you were born in the eight day of the eighty month. The name
of village was Siripur belonging to the PadmaNaabhiMandala
(sorrounding of Shri Khestra Puri).
You took birth in Birajaa Khestra
(place of Birajaa Goddess). Mother Birajaa was your mother (divine) and
had bestowed blessings and feelings in you. The birth clan was Oda and
you took birth in village Odakandaa. You became fully a household man and
after the youth passed devotion developed highly and you became a staunch
devotee of Hari. Thus your life ended admist devotion for Hari and
you got Mukti from the tenth birth.
Eleventh birth took place, east coast is the
identifcation, BalantiNagar is name of the place within the kingdom of
the brave SandhaRaja (king with name Sandha). Karmayoga occured without Yoga
of SandhaRaaja. The king (saviour) behaved like no-saviour and
you were born as a Jaaraja (mixed race of higher and lower blood) as a
Charmakaar (shoemaker- who works with leather). Mother passed away untimely
and you passed your days in Nemaala like Ulluka Patanga (flying
insect attracted to fire). Like a household man your days passed away chanting
Krusna's name and fixed your concentration on his lotus feet. The Yoga,
virtues, and Guru-Shishya feelings were always there and you got the
direction and identification at Nemaala. Your desires were destroyed with
time and eleventh life thus passed away.
Birth 12: Shri Ram Das (conversation in
BhaabaManjusawas between Arakhsita Das and RamDas duirng this time)
You are the Shishya with uncomparable
devotional feelings and I am your wretched Guru. You always took birth along
with the PanchaDhaata (the five masters-
PanchaSakhaa) in all you previous 11 births. You took birth in MeruMandala
bringing PanchaGuru (five Gurus) together and unifying the Panchadhaa Bhakti-
you only are the pride of devotees. Always with your feelings (bhaava)
you pleased Hari and devotees are crazy for you. All sins, sufferings,
difficulties will be removed once one fixes his heart on the lotus feet of
Krusna. To be saved from this worldy sufferings Krusna Naama is the
best means. Surrendering to his feet I bow to Shunya, I, wretched
Arakhita Das, know nothing more.
Birth 13: Shri Buddhanatha Das (the present birth)
The time to fulfill duties has come and with
his mercy you will be born in OdaRaastra (Orissa). Due to previous
virtues you will be born in this undisclosed place with devotion like
SriDhara of SriKhsetra. Your KarmaKhsetra (work place) will be
at the confluence of the rivers Devi and Gobari and you will be
born in nearby village- Telasaraa. You will lead life like an uneducated
man but having the supreme knowledge. KarmaYoga will be dominant with
access to the supreme knowledge. Your father will be NaraHari and mother
will be Sundari. Your birth will be in Godambaa clan and your
virtues will be dormant till 18 and your form will be meager and wretched. After
20 years will pass away, in 21st year you will find the Yogasutra due to
previous virtues. The place will be secret and Subhadra Daaru will be
there. Also there will be KalpaBata there. People will be calling the
place Gobardhana Pitha. A BataBrikhshya will grow there which is
Shunya Bata and will be called as Sweta Bata. On behalf of your
Gurus you will perform the YugaKarma.
