One time the Moghul King Hussain Shah took water from IDS pot and sprinkled it on Subuddhi Raya. According to strict Hindu law this act destroyed Subuddhi Raya's social standing. A smarta brahmana advised Subuddhi to atone by drinking boiling ghee, which in effect meant suicide. Receiving Mahaprabhu's shelter, Subuddhi Raya moved to Shri Vrindavana dhama.
He was a rasika Vaishnava. His collegues were Raghunatha Bhatta Goswami, Kashivara Pandit, and other Vrindavana Devotees. In Krishna lila he is Guna-chuda or Shubhanana. His original samadhi is in the 64 Samadhis Area.
