PURPORT
In the Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika, verse 104, it is mentioned that Nilambara Cakravarti was formerly Garga Muni. Some of the family descendants of Nilambara Cakravarti still live in the village of the name Magdoba in the district of Faridpur in Bangladesh. His nephew was Jagannatha Cakravarti, also known as Mamu Thakura, who became a disciple of Pandita Gosvami and stayed at Jagannatha Puri as the priest of Tota-gopinatha. Nilambara Cakravarti lived at Navadvipa in the neighborhood of Belapukuriya. This fact is mentioned in the book Prema-vilasa. Because he lived near the house of the Kazi, the Kazi was also considered one of the maternal uncles of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu. The Kazi used to address Nilambara Cakravarti as kaka, or "uncle." One cannot separate the residence of the Kazi from Vamanapukura because the tomb of the Kazi is still existing there. Formerly the place was known as Belapukuriya, and now it is called Vamanapukura. This has been ascertained by archeological evidence.
