Sri Bhavananda Raya dedicated himself and his entire family of five sons (Ramananda Raya, Gopinatha, Vaninatha, Kalanidhi, Sudhanidhi) to the lotus feet of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Once the Lord happily embraced him saying, “Bhavananda, you are Pandu. And your five sons are the five Pandavas. I consider your sons to be like My relatives. These five brothers are all My eternal servants life after life.
