"Dhananjaya Pandit was a very rare soul. Nityananda Prabhu was
always present in his heart." [C.B. Antya 5.733]
His Sripat is at Sitalgram, Mangal Kota Khana, Barddhaman district.
There is a railway station
at Kaicor on the metre gauge line from Katwa to Barddhaman. If one
gets down at Kaicor, then it is about a twenty minute walk to the
village of Sitalgram.
Dhananjaya Pandita also stayed at Sancra Pancra for some time.
According to the opinion of some he was born in the village of
Jargram, within the district of Cattagram. He was present during
Mahaprabhu's sankirtana pastimes in Navadvipa. After returning from
Vrindavana, he also worshipped the Deities at Jalandigram.
At present the Deities of Sri Gopinatha, Sri Sri Nitai-Gaura and
Sri Damodara Salagram-sila are being worshipped there. He has no
descendants, but he had a brother by the name Sri Sanjaya, whose
son was Sri Rama Kanai Thakura. His Sripat is located at Mulukgrama
(near Bolpur). Sanjaya was perhaps the disciple of Dhananjaya
Pandita. The present sevakas at Sitalgram are the descendants of
Dhananjaya Pandit's disciple.
His disappearance is on the eighth day of the bright fortnight, in
the month of Kartik.
