TRANSLATION
Among the devotees who accompanied the Lord in Jagannatha Puri, two of them-Paramananda Puri and Svarupa Damodara-were the heart and soul of the Lord. Among the other devotees were Gadadhara, Jagadananda, Sankara, Vakresvara, Damodara Pandita, Thakura Haridasa, Raghunatha Vaidya and Raghunatha dasa.
PURPORT
The Caitanya-bhagavata, Antya-lila, Chapter Five, states that Raghunatha Vaidya came to see Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu when the Lord was staying at Panihati. He was a great devotee and had all good qualities. According to the Caitanya-bhagavata, he was formerly Revati, the wife of Balarama. Anyone he glanced upon would immediately attain Krsna consciousness. He lived on the seashore at Jagannatha Puri and compiled a book of the name Sthana-nirupana.
