Kilimbikä

Gauralila - Narayani

Younger sister of Ambika

In text 43 of the Gaura-gaëoddeça-dépikä, a book written by Kavi-karëapüra that describes all the associates of Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu and who they previously were, there is the following statement regarding Näräyaëé:

ambikäyäù svasä yäsén nämnä çréla-kilimbikä
kåñëocchiñöaà prabhuïjänä seyaà näräyaëé matä

When Lord Kåñëa was a child, He was nursed by a woman named Ambikä, who had a younger sister named Kilimbikä. During the time of Lord Caitanya's incarnation, the same Kilimbikä used to eat the remnants of food left by Lord Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu. That Kilimbikä was Näräyaëé, who was a niece of Çréväsa Öhäkura.
(Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 8.41)
