(HH Kadamba Kanana Swami, 2nd March 2012, New York) Lecture: Caitanya-caritāmṛta

In Orissa there was a lot of philosophical wildlife! Even Prabhupada mentions that:

‘What comes out of Orissa is not considered so reliable!’

He also makes that statement. Not that with that we can write off everyone and everything, but we must be careful with all the aparā-sāmpradāyika influences in Orissa, because Shyamananda went there, and of course Rasikananda started to preach there. Shyamananda also took manuscripts and distributed it there, but not in the same quantities because Khetri was a big occasion and many manuscripts were found!

So whatever Shyamananda and Rasikananda did in Orissa is there but it is still surrounded by also a lot of other influences, which continued there!
