Who is Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya? by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
The original name of Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya was Vasudeva Bhattacharya. Vidyanagara his birth place, is about four kilometres away from the Navadvīpa or Canpahati railway station. His father, Mahesvara Visharada was a very much celebrated man. It is said that Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya was the greatest logician of his time in the whole of India. At Mithila, in Bihar, he became a student of a great professor named Paksadhara Mishra, who did not allow any student to note down his explanations of logic. Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya was so talented, however, that he learned the explanations by heart, and when he later returned to Navadvīpa he established a school for the study of logic, thus diminishing the importance of Mithila. Students from various parts of India still come to Navadvipa to study logic.
According to some authoritative opinions, the celebrated logician Raghunatha Shiromani was also a student of Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya. In effect, Sarvabhauma Bhattacharya became the leader of all students of logic. Although he was a gṛhastha (householder), he even taught many sannyāsīs in the knowledge of logic. He started a school at Jagannatha Puri for the study of Vedānta philosophy, of which he was a great scholar.
