The twenty-third and twenty-fourth distinguished devotees of Nityänanda Prabhu had been Sadäçiva Kaviräja and his son Puruñottama däsa, who was the tenth gopäla. From beginning, Puruñottama däsa was merged within the service of the lotus toes of Lord Nityänanda Prabhu, and he all the time engaged in infantile play with Lord Kåñëa. Çré Känu Öhäkura, a really respectable gentleman, was the son of Puruñottama däsa Öhäkura. He was such an excellent devotee that Lord Kåñëa all the time lived in his physique.

“Sadasiva Kaviraja and Nagara Purusottama, who had been father and son, are described within the Caitanya-Bhagavata as maha-bhagyavan, vastly lucky. They belonged to the vaidya caste of physicians. The Gaura-ganoddesa-dipika, verse 156, says that Candravali, a most beloved gopi of Krsna, later took beginning as Sadasiva Kaviraja, who was an excellent devotee of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.

Purusottama dasa Thakura typically lived at Sukhasagara, close to the Cakadaha and Simurali railway stations.

All of the Deities put in by Purusottama Thakura had been previously located in Beledana-grama, however when the temple was destroyed, the Deities had been dropped at Sukhasagara. When that temple merged within the mattress of the Ganges, the Deities had been introduced with Janava-mata’s Deity to Sahebasanga Bedigrama. Since that place additionally has been destroyed, all of the Deities are actually located within the village named Candudegrama, which is located one mile up from Palapada, as referred to above.”
