VISNUPRIYA DEVI

Krsna lila - Bhu-sakti (Mother of the Universe)
Father: Sanätana Miçra
Husband: Lord Caitanya

Visnupriya Devi was the wife of Lord Caitanya before He took sannyasa. After His sannyasa, she lived a life of severe austerity engaged constantly in chanting hari-näma. She would set aside one grain of rice for every round of hari-näma that she chanted. In the evening she would cook that rice and offer it to her Deity of Çré Gauräìga. She would then give half to Çacé Mätä and eat the remainder.

She is a manifestation of the internal energy of the Lord. (See the Bhaktivedanta purport to Srimad-Bhagavatam 4.23.20.)
