Bhagavaan Gopinath Ji (3 July 1898 – 28 May 1968), born Gopinath Bhan, also called Bhagavaan Ji, was a mystic saint of early 20th century Kashmir in India. He has been called a jivanmukta (liberated soul) and his spiritual state has been described as Shambhavi avastha (state of Shiva).
Contemporary saints of his times have also called him an Aghoreshwar. It was sometime during 1946–1956 that he came to be called as Bhagavaan Gopinath Ji by his devotees.
Pandit Prasad Joo Parimoo called ‘Zada Bharata’ after the legendary saint of the Puranas – in a vision of Shri Raginya Bhagawati at Tula Mula Kashmir. The Bhagawati expressed to Pandit Parimoo that she is taking birth in his House. Eventually Haara Maal was born, who was to give birth to “Bhagavaan Gopinath Ji – Tathi Bub”, in course of time.

He is the embodiment of the Shri Vigraha - the very existence of Shri, abidingin the Prakash of Shiva and the VImarsha of Shakti. He assumed the human form of Tabhi Bub Bhagavaan as the son of Pandit Narayanji and Shrimati Haarmall
