About the Book:
Madhavadeva was a stalwart of the Eka Sarana Nāma Dharma order founded by Srimanta Sankaradeva, whom he succeeded. He gave enormous support to his preceptor and authored a lot of devotional literature. Like his preceptor, Madhavadeva too created many songs, dances, and plays based on devotion to Lord Krishna. He created some Rāgas also. He authored the holy scripture Nāmghoshā. Vinoba Bhave was so impressed by this scripture that he authored a book titled Nāmghoshā Sār (Essence of Nāmghoshā). This biography by Dr Sanjib Kumar Borkakoti covers the entire life story of this genius from birth to death.
