TRANSLATION
"Raghunatha dasa is a disciple of Yadunandana Acarya, who is very gentle and is extremely dear to Vasudeva Datta, a resident of Kancanapalli. Because of Raghunatha dasa's transcendental qualities, he is always more dear than life for all of us devotees of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Since he has been favored by the abundant mercy of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, he is always pleasing. Vividly providing a superior example for the renounced order, this very dear follower of Svarupa Damodara Gosvami is the ocean of renunciation. Who among the residents of Nilacala [Jagannatha Puri] does not know him very well?
PURPORT
This verse is from Sri Caitanya-candrodaya-nataka (10.3) of Kavi-karnapura.
