near Katwa in west Bengal in the year 1520, thirty-four years after the appearance of Sri
Caitanya Mahaprabhu. His father was Sri Kamalakara dasa and his mother was Srimati Sadanandi. He
was their only son, and he spent much of his childhood living with his grandparents. As a young
boy Locana dasa met devotees of Lord Caitanya. His nature was that he had great attachment for
the Lord and was detached from worldly enjoyment.
As a young man Locana dasa accepted as his spiritual master Sri Narahari Sarakara an intimate
associate of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, Sri Narahari Thakura was an expert composer of devotional
songs and he instructed Locana dasa, who then wrote many wonderful songs, some of which were
