The Six Goswamis of Vrindavan!

The Six Goswamis are the principal assistants of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu who were instructed by Him to unveil spots of pastimes of Divine Couple in Vrindavan to the world, and also write and preach about the science of devotional life to embark conditioned souls like us on the journey back to home, back to Godhead, Sri Nitya Goloka Vrindavan.

Names of the Six Goswamis of Vrindavan Name of their worshippable deities Spiritual Name in Nitya Goloka Vrindavan
Srila Rupa Goswami Sri Radha Govind Dev Ji Sri Rupa Manjari
Srila Sanatana Goswami Sri Radha Madan Mohan Ji Sri Lavanga Manjari
Srila Raghunath Das Goswami - Sri Rati Manjari
Srila Gopal Bhatt Goswami Sri Radha Raman Ji Sri Guna Manjari
Srila Jiva Goswami Sri Radha Damodar Ji Sri Vilasa Manjari
Srila Raghunath Bhatt Goswami - Sri Rasa Manjari

In eternal Goloka Pastimes of the Divine Couple, the Six Goswamis are part of Astamanjaris, or eight principal maidservants (manjaris) of the Divine Couple. The other two apart from Six Goswamis in Astamanjaris are Srila Loknath Goswami and Srila Krishnadas Kaviraj Goswami (author of Sri Chaitanya Caritamrta).

Srila Prabhupada and Aindra Prabhu often emphasise that devotees must take shelter of Six Goswamis to embrace pure unalloyed loving devotional service.
