History

Mahanubhav also known as Jai Krishni Pantha

Historical sources and religious websites share that Jai Krishni Pantha started by Sarvadnya Shri Chakradhar Swami Or Shree Chakradahrara in 1267. Shri Chakradhar Swami propagated a religious movement, as well as social movement, in which all members were accepted irrespective of their castes, and the traditional ritualistic religion was rejected.
Some sources list the founder of Mahanubhava as Govinda Prabhu and Chakradhara as its first “apostle”

MAHANUBHAV ALSO KNOWN AS JAI KRISHNI PANTHA

Jai Krishni Pantha teaches that Krishna is the only God in Universe.

Sarvadnya Shree Chakradhar Swami told to his pantha that the lord takes avatars in all four Yugas (Krutayuga, Tretayuga, Dwaparyuga, Kaliyuga). Same was said by Shree Krishna in Shree Bhagavad Gita: “Dharma Sansthaapnaarthay Sambhavaami Yuge Yuge”. Accordingly, there is not a time in this world when an avatar is absent.

The Five incarnations of God knows as Pancha Krishna or Five Krishnas or Namo Panch Krishna Avatar:

1. Shree Krishna Chakravarti (of Dwaraka, Mathura)
2. Shree Dattatreya Prabhu (Badrikashram)
3. Shree Changdeva Raul (Chakrapani Prabhu, Phalatan Maharashtra)
4. Shree Gundam Raul (Govind Prabhu, Riddhapur, Amravati Maharashtra)
5. Sarvadnya Shree Chakradhar Swami (Bharuch, Gujarat)

There were only five, because these avatars fell in the Guru Parampara. Govindaprabhu was the guru of Shree Chakradhar Swami. Shree Chakrapani Prabhu was the guru of Shree Govindaprabhu. Shree Dattatreya Prabhu was the guru of Shree Chakrapani Prabhu. Shree Dattatreya Prabhu and Shree Krishna are not said to have another avatar as Guru.
