|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 10: The Trunk, Branches and Subbranches of the Caitanya Tree|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 10.138
īśvara-purīra śiṣya — brahmacārī kāśīśvara
śrī-govinda nāma tāńra priya anucara
īśvara-purīra śiṣya — disciple of Īśvara Purī; brahmacārī kāśīśvara — Brahmacārī Kāśīśvara; śrī-govinda — Śrī Govinda; nāma — name; tāńra — his; priya — very dear; anucara — follower.
Brahmacārī Kāśīśvara was a disciple of Īśvara Purī, and Śrī Govinda was another of his dear disciples.
Govinda was the personal servant of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. In the Gaura-gaṇoddeśa-dīpikā (137) it is stated that the servants formerly named Bhṛńgāra and Bhańgura in Vṛndāvana became Kāśīśvara and Govinda in Caitanya Mahāprabhu's pastimes. Govinda always engaged in the service of the Lord, even at great risk.
