Srila Prabhupada describes Raghunatha dasa Gosvami

    Posted on February 1, 2017

Raghunatha dasa Gosvami, he was the only child of his father and uncle, and at that time their income not less than one lakh of rupees per month. One lakh of rupees of that day, it is fifty lakhs now; you can understand from the exchange value. So he was such rich man, and he was only child. The whole property was for him. And he was married, with a very, very beautiful wife. He left everything for preaching Caitanya Mahaprabhu's cult.

From Srila Prabhupada's lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.2.46 — January 30, 1971, Prayaga
