Devotees make no inner distinction between Satyabhama and Jagadananda Pandit.
Jagadananda Pandit is the very life of the Lord. He is known everywhere as being a manifestation of Satyabhama.
(Chaitanya Charitamrita 1.10.29)
All glories to Gauranga, the life of Jagadananda and Shrigarbha! All glories to the wealth of Vakresvara Pandit!
(Chaitanya Bhagavat 2.7.3)
The date and place of Jagadananda Pandit’s birth are unknown. Devotees who are seeking devotion as the goal of their lives do not consider detailed information about a spiritual master’s material identity to be essential. From Chaitanya Bhagavat we learn that Jagadananda Pandit was present at Srivasa Angan and at Chandrasekhara’s house after Mahaprabhu returned from Gaya and participated in the beginnings of the sankirtan movement.
All the Vaishnavas felt great enthusiasm when they heard that Mahaprabhu had begun his sankirtan movement. Every night, these kirtans took place in the house of Srivasa Pandit, and on certain occasions, in the house of Chandrasekhara Acharya. Nityananda, Gadadhara, Advaita, Srivasa, Vidyanidhi, Murari, Hiranya, Hari Das, Ganga Das, Vanamali, Vijaya, Nandana, Jagadananda, Buddhimanta Khan, Narayan. These were some of the personalities who stayed with the Lord as he danced. Other than such intimate associates, no one was allowed entrance into the sankirtan.
(Chaitanya Bhagavat 2.8.110-113, 117)
Thus from Vrindavan Das’s account, we know that Jagadananda Pandit is an eternal associate of the Lord and participated with him in his Nabadwip sankirtan pastimes. From this we can surmise that he was born somewhere in Bengal.
