|Antya-līlā||Chapter 6: The Meeting of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and Raghunatha dasa Gosvāmī|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Antya 6.195
prabhu kahena, — "tomāra pitā-jyeṭhā dui jane
cakravartī-sambandhe hāma 'ājā' kari' māne
prabhu kahena — Lord Caitanya Mahāprabhu said; tomāra — your; pitā-jyeṭhā — father and his elder brother; dui jane — both of them; cakravartī-sambandhe — because of a relationship with Nīlāmbara Cakravartī; hāma — I; ājā kari' — as My grandfathers; māne — consider.
The Lord continued, "Your father and his elder brother are both related as brothers to My grandfather, Nīlāmbara Cakravartī. Therefore I consider them My grandfathers.
Nīlāmbara Cakravartī, the grandfather of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, was very intimately related to Raghunātha dāsa's father and uncle. Nīlāmbara Cakravartī used to call them his younger brothers because both of them were very much devoted to the brāhmaṇas and were very respectable gentlemen. Similarly, they used to call him Dādā Cakravartī, addressing him as an elder brother brāhmaṇa. Raghunātha dāsa, however, was almost the same age as Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu. Generally a grandchild may joke about his grandfather. Therefore Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu took advantage of the relationship between His grandfather and Raghunātha dāsa's father and uncle to speak in a joking way.
