Çré Çrémad 108 Anaìta Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja is extremely revered Saint in the Gauòéya Vaiñëava Society and needs no introduction for the world of the seekers of Absolute Truth. Present Rädhäkuëòa Mahaìta, Bäbäjé Mahäräja is the 34th Representative of the seat of Raghunätha Däsa Gosvämé. The pillar of the Original Gauòéya Vaiñëava tradition, for the world now, Bäbäjé Mahäräja is the Foremost proponent of Rägänugä Bhakti, the änugatyamaya bhakti of Rägätmikä devotees.
The Most Prominent Äcärya and The Foremost Preacher of Rägamärga, He has bejewelled the Gauòéya Vaiñëava Society with His Nectarine Lélä Kathäs commentaries and Numerous Granthas /Scriptures which form the backbone of Rägamärga Preaching works over the globe.
The Äcärya graced the world with His Appearance in 1927 in a district of Jharikhand. He spent His initial years as a householder. During those times, He heard of Çré Çrémad Kuïja Bihäré Däsa Bäbäjé Mahäräja who was influential as Bhajanändé Saint in Jharikhand. In 1950, He decided to leave for a pilgrimage from Jharkhand to meet the saint and followed Him in the pilgrimage from Jharikhand until He met Him at Çré Rädhäkuëòa. There He received Initiation from Him, into the disciplic succession, descending from Çré Nityänanda Prabhu and Çrématé Jähnavä Mätä.
Despite having intense desire to spend the rest of His Life at Çré Rädhäkuëòa, Bäbäjé returned back to His Village, to serve the order of His Spiritual Master to spread the Message of Lord Gauräìga and initiate people into Spiritual life.
Eventually, He came to stay at Çré Rädhäkuëòa forever and then received the cloth of an ascetic from Çré Kuïja Bihäré Däsa Bäbäjé. Over the decades to come, He engaged Himself in a deep study of the Gauòéya canon of sacred texts, whilst absorbing more and more into bhajana, both in the external and the internal methods of worshiping Rädhä Kåñëa and Gauräìga.
Bäbäjé Mahäräja’s voluminous contribution of Granthas includes His nectarine commentaries on the foundational Scriptures of Six Gosvämés such as Viläpa Kusumäïjalé, Çré Stavävalé, and of the later great Äcäryas such as Çré Rädhärasa sudhänidhi (of Çré Prabodänanda Sarasvaté), Çré Çré Prema Bhakti Candrikä (of Çré Narottama Däsa Öhäkura), to name a few. The books He wrote Himself are Sädhya Sädhana tattva vijïäna, the glory and heritage of Rädhäkuëòa, Çré Bhagavat Tattva vijïäna and many others, which open up the understanding into deep principles of bhakti. His work on Scriptures makes evident of His Intensity of Bhajana and Deep Realisations, and clarity into the matter of Rägamärga Bhajana and Lord’s Pastimes. They swiftly make one experience and relish Rädhä Kåñëa’s sweetness and make clear (elucidate) the real understanding of the works of Gosvämés and Äcäryas.
Foremost Äcärya in Gauòéya Vaiñëava Society, He has inspired the world through His Humble conduct, purity of heart and deep understanding of the principles of bhakti. He is living a life of ascetic yet a Preacher, preaching the pure message of Mahäprabhu. Astonishing everyone, He used to take 4 Kathäs daily in the Kumbha fair many years back.
Bäbäjé Mahäräja is popularly addressed as “Paëòit Jé” across the 84 acre Vraja District, for His incomparable knowledge and practical realisations of the Spiritual World. The Divine Father is having thousands of disciples all over the globe performing Rägamärga Bhajana.
