caitanya-pārṣada—śrī-ācārya purandara
pitā kari’ yāṅre bale gaurāṅga-sundara


caitanya-pārṣada—associate of Lord Caitanya; śrī-ācārya purandara—Śrī Ācārya Purandara; pitā—father; kari’—taking him; yāṅre—whom; bale—says; gaurāṅga-sundara—Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu.


Śrī Ācārya Purandara, the ninth branch, was a constant associate of Lord Caitanya’s. The Lord accepted him as His father.


It is described in the Caitanya-bhāgavata that whenever Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu visited the house of Rāghava Paṇḍita, He also visited Purandara Ācārya immediately upon receiving an invitation. Purandara Ācārya is to be considered most fortunate because the Lord used to greet him by addressing him as His father and embracing him in great love.
