Srila Haridasa thakura was renowned for his constant chanting of the holy names of Krishna. He appeared in the 15th century in Bengal. He was an ardent follower of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Today we commemorate his disappearance day. In this video you will find few glimpses of his life. In Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's words "Let us all sing the glories of Haridasa Thakura. Haridasa was the crest-jewel of the world. By his death the earth has lost its treasure. Out of His great mercy Krishna had given Me his association. And now He has taken him away. When Haridasa himself wished to leave the world I could not hold him back. Just like Bhismadeva, Haridasa gave up his life at his own will." (Chaitanya-charitamrita, Antya 11.93-98.)
