Date of Birth:
7th day of the dark half of month Margashirsha in V.S. 1625.
He was the son of the second son of Shri Vitthalanatha-prabhucharana, Shri Govindraiji and father of well known Acharya Shri Hariraiji and Shri Gopeshwarji.
The incident of Shri Keshavapuri in his regard is well known. One of Shri Vallabhacharya’s brothers had taken Sannyas and was named Shri Keshavapuri. Once Keshavpuri came to Gokul to see Shri Vitthalanatha-Prabhucharana with a view to adopt one of his sons to his Ashram as his successor. Shri Kalyanaraiji heard that talk. Being of tender age he remained worried whole night. The next morning he requested Shri Vitthalnatha-prabhucharana by a historical Kirtan with full heart “Hon Vraja Manganoju Vraja taja anat na jaun” (Let me forgive I don’t go away from Vraj, I beg my living in Vraj from you). Hearing this, Shri Vitthalanatha-prabhucharana took him to his lap very lovingly and assured him not to hand him over to anyone.
