Who is the originator of the Radha Ballabhi sect?

The Radha-Ballabhi sect, also known as the Radha-Vallabhi sect, is a sect of Bhakti movement which is based on the worship of Radha and her consort Krishna, particularly in the form of Radha-Vallabha. The sect is believed to have originated in the 16th century in the Braj region of North India, which is considered to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna.

The origin of the Radha-Ballabhi sect is attributed to a 16th century saint, Jayadeva Goswami. Jayadeva Goswami is considered to be the founder of the Radha-Vallabhi sect and is known for his famous composition of Gita Govinda, a Sanskrit poem that describes the love story of Radha and Krishna. The poem is considered to be one of the most important works of the Bhakti movement and is still widely read and performed in India and other parts of the world.

It is believed that Jayadeva Goswami was initiated into the Radha-Vallabhi sect by his spiritual master, Sri Advaita Acharya, who is considered to be one of the earliest and most prominent saints of the Bhakti movement.
