Srimati Jähëavä-devé

Krsna lila - Revati, Ananga-manjari
Father: Sürya-däsa Sarakhela

Jahnava-mata was one of the wives of Lord Nityananda Prabhu, the other was Srimati Vasudha devi . Especially after the disappearance of Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda, she became a leading figure in the sankirtana movement.

Lord Balarama's two wives, Srimati Varuni-devi and Srimati Revati-devi, appeared during Lord Caitanya's pastimes as Srimati Vasudha-devi and Srimati Jahnava-devi, the two dear wives of Lord Nityananda, and the daughters of the great personality Sri Surya-dasa. Their father, Surya-dasa, had previously been Maharaja Kakudmi. His bodily luster made him as effulgent as the sun.
(Sri Gaura-ganodesa-dipika - 65)

Some say that Srimati Vasudha-devi is the incarnation of Srimati Ananga-manjari, and others say that Srimati Jahnava-devi is the incarnation of Srimati Ananga-manjari. In truth, both opinions are correct. They are both incarnations of Srimati Ananga-manjari.
(Sri Gaura-ganodesa-dipika - 66)
