Nimbarka Sampradaya (Hamsa Sampradaya)

The Nimbarka Sampradaya also popularly known as the Hamsa Sampradaya, is a Vaishnava Sampradaya. It was founded by Sri Nimbarka, a 7th century saint, and this sampradaya is based on dvaita and advaita philosophies. The teachings of this sampradaya are based on becoming a part of the god, and not becoming a part of the god.

The Sampradaya teachings were told by Rishi Narada to Nimbarka.  Sri Narada Rishi learnt about this sampradaya from the SanathKumaras, who were the foremost sons of Lord Brahma. Narada is the main saint who propagated the Vishnu Bhakti throughout the universe, since he usually wanders from one place to another place.
