From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Svarupa Damodara is an eternal associate and friend of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Previously his name was Shri Purushottama Acharya. He lived in Navadvipa. He always stayed with Mahaprabhu.

Shri Purushottama Acharya did not accept the dress of a sannyasi, but only gave up the shikha and sacred thread. His name became Svarupa. After this, taking up the order of his sannyasa-guru, Shri Purushottama Acharya went to Jagannatha Puri. At that time, he again met with Chaitanya. [1]
