|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 10: The Trunk, Branches and Subbranches of the Caitanya Tree|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 10.92
prabhu samarpila tāńre svarūpera hāte
prabhura gupta-sevā kaila svarūpera sāthe
prabhu — Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu; samarpila — handed over; tāńre — him; svarūpera — Svarūpa Dāmodara; hāte — to the hand; prabhura — of the Lord; gupta-sevā — confidential service; kaila — did; svarūpera — Svarūpa Dāmodara; sāthe — with.
When Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī approached Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu at Jagannātha Purī, the Lord entrusted him to the care of Svarūpa Dāmodara, His secretary. Thus they both engaged in the confidential service of the Lord.
This confidential service was the personal care of the Lord. Svarūpa Dāmodara, acting as His secretary, attended to the Lord's baths, meals, rest and massages, and Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī assisted him. In effect, Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī acted as the assistant secretary of the Lord.
