"One will surely attain Shri Chaitanya and Shri Nityananda simply by remembering Kaliya Krishna Dasa." (Chaitanya Bhagavata) Completely devoted to Lord Nityananda, Kaliya Krishna Dasa knew nothing but the lotus feet of Nitai.
His birthplace is in the Bardhaman (Burdwan) district of West Bengal within a short distance from the Railway station at Katwa, at the village called Akai Hatta. This village is situated on the old king's road between Navadwipa and Katwa. Akai Hatta is a very small village.
On the twelfth day of the dark moon in the month of Chaitra, Shri Kaliya Krishna Dasa Thakura disappeared. He left his body while doing bhajana in Vrindavana.
This is not the same Kaliya Krishna dasa who accompanied Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu to South India.
At present, Kaliya Krishnadas's descendents live in different holy places in Bengal.
In Vraja lila he is Labanga, a cowherd boyfriend of Krishna-Balarama.
