Gaurédäsa Paëòita

Krsna lila - Subala
Father: Kaàsäri Miçra
Mother: Çré Kamalä Devé
Brothers: Süryadäsa, Dämodara, Jagannätha, Kåñëadäsa, and Nåsiàha-Caitanya
Wife: Vimalä Devé

His eldest brother, Süryadäsa, had two daughters - Çrématé Vasudhä Devé and Çrématé Jähnavä Devé - who became the wives of Nityänanda Prabhu.

Gaurédäsa Paëòita is considered the emblem of the most elevated devotional service in love of Godhead. He sacrificed everything for the service of Lord Nityananda. Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda personally appeared as Deity forms in his home. (See Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila 11.26-27.)

Gaurédäsa lived in Ambikä Kälnä on the opposite side of the Gaìgä from Çäntipura. Just next to Gaurédäsa's house there is a large tamarind tree, beneath which Çréman Mahäprabhu and Çré Nityänanda Prabhu would sit. Once Gaurédäsa implored the two brothers to remain in his home forever. In order to pacify Gaurédäsa, Mahäprabhu made a beautiful set of Gaura-Nitäi Deities from a nearby neem tree and presented them to him.
