(Hinduism, Vaishnavism)

Srivasa Pandita, or Srivasa Thakura, was a member of the Pañca-tattva, consisting of the 15th Century Bengali Saint, Caitanya Mahaprabhu, and His four immediate expansions and energies. Every night, Lord Caitanya and His associates would chant the names of Krishna and dance in Srivasa Pandita's house. Srivasa Pandita never made any effort to support himself or his dependents. Because of his full dedication to Lord Caitanya and His mission, Lord Caitanya provided for all his needs.
