The great venerable grandsire of pure devotion, loved by all Vaishnavas of both Nabadwip and Vrindavan — I worship the feet of that great Vaishnava guru, the ocean of love, Srila Jagannath Prabhu.”
[Srila Bhakti Rakshak Sridhar Maharaj]

Srila Jagannath Das Babaji was the siksa-guru [instructing spiritual master] and babaji-guru of Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakur. Srila Bhaktivinoda was known to be especially fond of hearing his discourses on Srimad Bhagavatam.

Although physically crippled, Srila Jagannath Das danced in divine inspiration upon discovering the holy birthplace of Lord Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. It is said that he lived for 125-130 years, and was known and revered by all the devotees of both Vrindavan and Nabadwip.”
