Another important devotee of Lord Nityānanda Prabhu was Viṣṇudāsa, who had two brothers, Nandana and Gańgādāsa. Lord Nityānanda Prabhu sometimes stayed at their house.
The three brothers Viṣṇudāsa, Nandana and Gańgādāsa were residents of Navadvīpa and belonged to the Bhaṭṭācārya brāhmaṇa family. Both Viṣṇudāsa and Gańgādāsa stayed for some time with Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu at Jagannātha Purī, and the Caitanya-bhāgavata states that formerly Nityānanda Prabhu stayed at their house.
