krsnadasa—of the name Krsnadasa; nama—name; suddha—pure; kulina—respectable; brahmanabrahmana; yare—whom; sange—with; laiya—taking; kaila—did; daksina—southern India; gamana—touring.
The twenty-second devotee, Krsnadasa, was born of a pure and respectable brahmana family. While touring southern India, Lord Caitanya took Krsnadasa with Him.
Krsnadasa is described in the Madhya-lila, chapters Seven and Nine. He went with Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu to carry His waterpot. In the Malabar state, members of the Bhattathari cult tried to captivate Krsnadasa by supplying a woman to seduce him, but although Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu saved him from being harmed, when they returned to Jagannatha Puri He asked Krsnadasa to remain there, for the Lord was never favorably disposed toward an associate who was attracted by a woman. Thus Krsnadasa lost the personal association of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
