His son Aniruddha was also a renowned prince. Rupesvara, who had somewhere in the east, a son, named Padmanabha, who settled down on the banks of the Ganges at Navahatta Grama performed a sacrifice Yajna. He had five sons, of whom Mukunda was the youngest.
On account of a quarrel with his relatives Mukunda left Navahatta Grama and went to Fateyabad. Mukunda had a son named Srikumara. The eldest Sanatana appears to have learnt Sanskrit from Ratnakara Vidyavachaspati, a scholar of Navadvipa.
He became a high official at the Mohammadan Court of Hussain Shah of Gauda and settled with his brothers at the village Ramakeli. Rupa also appears to have held some official position at the same court. By nature of a religious disposition, they were attracted by the Great Reformer Lord Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. They left home to become his disciples. With regard to the exact dates of Rupa Gosvamin no authentic information is available, but from his relation to Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and from the dates of composition recorded at the end of some of his own works, we can approximately fix the period of his literary activity.
Lalita Madhava Nataka In the three dramatic works of Sri Rupa Gosvamin the Lalita Madhava Nataka is more extensive being in ten acts, a more complicated in theme and plot, more narrative than dramatic in conception and execution because there is a great deal of dialouges but little incident. The commentary of Narayana explains that the object of the drama is to illustrate the main features and characteristics of Samrddhimat Sambhogasrngara defined by Rupa Gosvamin himself in his Ujjvalanilamani.
Briefly speaking, the plot of the Lalita Madhava Nataka is as follows:- Paurnamasi Mother of Sandipani Muni and disciple of Devarsi Narada muni, reveals the origin of Chandravali and Radhika, who, as two daughters of Vindhya Giri, are related as sisters, a fact of which they themselves were unaware. The infant Chandravali, having been stolen by Putana Demoness , an emissary of Kamsa-Raja fell from her hands in a stream and was found by Bhismaka the king of Vidarbha.
She was maintained by him as his own daughter. We are also intimated here that there was regular marriage of Chandravall and Radhika with Srikrsna, who already being the wives of Gopas, Govardhana and Abhimanyu respectively, is described as the effect of Maya. This is also true in the case of other Gopis, when their so called husbands, the Gopas could never look upon them as their wives.
The object of the first act is to describe chiefly with reference to Chandravali and Radhika, It depicts the returning home of Srikrsna in the evening after tending cows all the day, and his meetings, separately with Chandravalt and Radhika, but both the meetings are interrupted by the vigilance of their respective mother-in-laws Bharunda and Jatila.
It thus gives the poet an opportunity to present Padma and Syamala, the two companions of Chandravali as heroines respectively. In the meantime, the demon Samkhachuda is sent by Kamsa to kidnap Radhika, who is reported to have been married to Srikrsna and who is enthroned as the chief of the Gopis. She goes to worship the Sun God, Srikrsna in disguise appears as a Brahmanakumara, the priest to officiate at the cermony, but the little comedy is upset by the reported arrival of Sarpkhachuda demon, whom Srikrsna duly kills behind the scene.
She jumps into the river Yamuna and is lost with Visakha, but a voice from divine reveals that she has gone to the other world by passing through the orb of the Sun. Her companion Lalita also jumps from the top of a hill to kill herself.
The fourth act changes the scene from the joyless Vrndavana to Mathura, and reveals the corresponding sorrows of Srikrsna due to separation from Chandravali, Radhika and his beloved Gopikas. In the meantime, Chandravali, who is really Rukmini, has been carried away by her brother Rukmin, who is ashamed of her being brought to Vrndavana, in order that she should be suitably married to Sisupala, king of Chedi.
The sixteen thousand and one hundred Gopikas were also forcibly abducted by the Narakasura, so that one must imagine that Vrndavana was by this time desolated.
Thus the entire drama is divided into ten parts. The servants danced, and the restless eyes of all the young girls glanced about. Kabe hama bujhaba se yugala-piriti.
