|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 1: The Later Pastimes of Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 1.284
tāńra ājñā lañā gelā prabhura caraṇe
prabhu tāńre samarpilā svarūpera sthāne
tāńra — His; ājñā — order; lañā — taking; gelā — approached; prabhura — of Caitanya Mahāprabhu; caraṇe — the lotus feet; prabhu — the Lord; tāńre — him; samarpilā — handed over; svarūpera — of Svarūpa Dāmodara; sthāne — to the place.
Later, Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī left home and took shelter of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu at Jagannātha Purī. At that time, the Lord received him and placed him under the care of Svarūpa Dāmodara for spiritual enlightenment.
In this regard, Śrīla Raghunātha dāsa Gosvāmī writes in Vilāpa-kusumāñjali (5):
yo māḿ dustara-geha-nirjala-mahā-kūpād apāra-klamāt
sadyaḥ sāndra-dayāmbudhiḥ prakṛtitaḥ svairīkṛpā-rajjubhiḥ
uddhṛtyātma-saroja-nindi-caraṇa-prāntaḿ prapadya svayaḿ
śrī-dāmodara-sāc-cakāra tam ahaḿ caitanya-candraḿ bhaje
"Let me offer my respectful obeisances unto the lotus feet of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu, who, by His unreserved mercy, kindly saved me from household life, which is exactly like a blind well without water, and placed me in the ocean of transcendental joy under the care of Svarūpa Dāmodara Gosvāmī."
