Who is mother Sachi?
Sachi devi was the daughter of Nilambara Chakravarti and a resident of Belpukhuria. Nilambara had only one daughter and two sons, namely Yogeshvara and Ratnagarbha. Sachi Devi’s father had formerly been the cowherd Sumukha, who was Yashoda Devi’s father. Sachi Devi’s mother had formerly been Patala Devi, the wife of Sumukha in Krishna lila. She was married to Jagannatha Mishra. After marriage she had eight daughters who died, followed by the birth of Vishvarupa and Vishvambhara. Yashoda Devi and Vraja’s king Nanda, who had been like two great oceans of the nectar of love for Krishna during the Lord’s pastimes in Vrindavana, appeared during Lord Chaitanya’s pastimes as Sachi Devi and Jagannatha Purandara. Some Devotees say that the two demigods Aditi and Kashyapa, who incarnated as Kaushalya and Dasharatha, Prshni and Sutapa, and also as Devaki and Vasudeva, the parents of Balarama and Krishna, also entered the bodies of Sachi Devi and Jagannatha. These Devotees say that if this were not so, then it would not have been possible for Balarama to take birth as their son Vishvarupa. (Shri Gaura Ganodesha Dipika by Shrila Kavi Karnapura 37, 38, 39, 105)
