Adi-lila 08: The Author Receives the Orders of Krishna and Guru
Bhugarbha Goswami, a disciple of Gadadhar Pandit, was always engaged in topics regarding Lord Chaitanya, knowing nothing else.
Among his disciples were Chaitanya Das, who was a priest of the Govinda Deity, as well as Mukundananda Chakravarti and the great devotee Krishnadasa.
Among the disciples of Ananta Acharya was Sivananda Chakravarti, in whose heart Lord Caitanya and Nityananda constantly dwelled.
In Vrindavan there were also many other great devotees, all of whom desired to hear the last Pastimes of Lord Chaitanya.
By their mercy, all these devotees ordered me to write of the last Pastimes of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. Because of their order only, although I am shameless, I have attempted to write this Chaitanya-charitamrta.

Bhugarbha Goswami, formerly known as Prema-Manjari, was a great friend of Lokanath Goswami, who constructed the temple of Gokulananda, one of the seven important temples of Vrindavan - namely, Govinda, Gopinath, Madana-mohan, Radharamana, Syamasundar, Radha-Damodar and Gokulananda - that are authorized institutions of Gaudiya Vaishnavas.
Sivananda Chakravarti, the thirty-third branch, who always lived in Vrindavan with firm conviction, is considered an important branch of Gadadhar Pandit.
