Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrita Madhya 18.52
'govinda' bhakta, ara vani-krishnadasa
pundarikaksha, isana, ara laghu-haridasa
govinda -- Govinda; bhakta -- a great devotee; ara -- and; vani-krishnadasa -- Vani Krishnadasa; pundarikaksha -- Pundarikaksha; isana -- Isana; ara -- and; laghu-haridasa -- Laghu Haridasa.
The great devotee Govinda, Vani Krishnadasa, Pundarikaksha, Isana and Laghu Haridasa also accompanied him.
Laghu Haridasa should not be confused with Junior Haridasa, who committed suicide at Prayaga. Generally a devotee is called Haridasa, and consequently there are many Haridasas. The chief was Thakura Haridasa. There was also a Madhyama Haridasa.
In the Bhakti-ratnakara (Sixth Wave), there is a list of many of the chief devotees who accompanied Srila Rupa Gosvami.
