PURPORT
Verses 197 and 207 of the Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika describe Kavi Datta as the gopi named Kalakanthi, verses 196 and 207 describe Nayana Misra as the gopi named Nitya-manjari, and verses 196 and 205 describe Gangamantri as the gopi named Candrika. Mamu Thakura, whose real name was Jagannatha Cakravarti, was the nephew of Sri Nilambara Cakravarti, Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu's grandfather. In Bengal a maternal uncle is called mama, and in East Bengal and Orissa, mamu. Thus Jagannatha Cakravarti was known as Mama or Mamu Thakura. Mamu Thakura's residence was in the district of Faridpur in the village known as Magadoba. After the demise of Sri Gadadhara Pandita, Mamu Thakura became the priest in charge of the temple known as Tota-gopinatha in Jagannatha Puri. According to the opinion of some Vaisnavas, Mamu Thakura was formerly known as Sri Rupa-manjari. The followers of Mamu Thakura were Raghunatha Gosvami, Ramacandra, Radhavallabha, Krsnajivana, Syamasundara, Santamani, Harinatha, Navinacandra, Matilala, Dayamayi and Kunjavihari.
Kanthabharana, whose original name was Sri Ananta Cattaraja, was the gopi named Gopali in krsna-lila.
