Prabhu Jagadbandhu was a 19th-century Hindu Vaishnav Saint of Bengal. Considered a re-incarnation of Sri Chaitanya[1] he spent much of his life meditating and preaching in the Sri Angan Ashram in Faridpur, Bangladesh. His teachings were the inspiration for the founding of the Mahanam Sampraday sect. He attained Samadhi in 1921 in Sri Angan. His mortal remains have been preserved and worshipped ever since with continuous recitation of Harinam or God's name since 1921.

Biography[edit]

He was Chandraputra (Son of Moon) Very direct & original source speaks he was born without any human medium to come to mortal realm. He was Charihostho (his total body measured four times the length of his own arm thoroughly misinterpreted as having four arms).

Only one real statue made by a great grandfather of Indu surname who was told by God in his dreams that he would see a block of neem would float on the holy Ganges in West Bengal & a carpenter would make him the statue. Point to note that the man (great grandfather) in question was a real devotee of God. The next day he went to the Ganges and as forecasted he saw a block of Neem wood floating in Ganges.

He took the wood to the carpenter who already knew he would be coming (as he was also visioned by God). He made a statue of Sri Jagathbandhu which is about 1.5 feet which is probably the only one in the world, and which still remains in a house in Rishra in West Bengal.

His teachings[edit]

Prabhu belonged to the Vaishnav tradition. He stressed the importance of chanting God's name (Hari Nam)[2] as a means of remembering and drawing close to the divine. He urged followers to follow a simple life avoiding temptation.
