|Ādi-līlā||Chapter 12: The Expansions of Advaita Ācārya and Gadādhara Paṇḍita|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 12.57
vāsudeva dattera teńho kṛpāra bhājana
sarva-bhāve āśriyāche caitanya-caraṇa
vāsudeva dattera — of Vāsudeva Datta; teńho — he was; kṛpāra — of the mercy; bhājana — competent to receive; sarva-bhāve — in all respects; āśriyāche — took shelter; caitanya-caraṇa — of the lotus feet of Lord Caitanya.
Śrī Yadunandana Ācārya was a student of Vāsudeva Datta, and he received all his mercy. Therefore he could accept Lord Caitanya's lotus feet, from all angles of vision, as the supreme shelter.
The Gaura-gaṇoddeśa-dīpikā (140) describes that Vāsudeva Datta was formerly Madhuvrata, a singer in Vṛndāvana.
