Svarupa Damodara Goswami was the eternal associate of Chaitanya
. He lived in Navadvipa. He did not accept the dress of a sannyasi. Instead he gave up the shikha and sacred thread. Thereafter his name became Svarupa. Thereafter he went to Jagannatha Puri. There he met Chaitanya.
After his Guru ordering him he came to Sri Nilachal where he met Mahaprabhu. His learning was unlimited however he spoke little with others and preferred to remain alone. Therefore very few people were aware of his actual position. His body was imbued with love for him. He was considered as a second Mahaprabhu. He would recite Sri Gita Govinda and the writings of Chandidas and Vidyapati Thakur
for the happiness of Mahaprabhu. He was like a Gandharva in music and he was like a Brihaspati in knowledge of the shastras. He was incomparable as far as talent and intelligence are concerned.
He was very dear to Sri Advaita and Nityananda Prabhu. Whenever Mahaprabhu became got himself immersed in a particular emotion, Swarup Damodar would perform a kirtan in that particular mood. Satasan Math was Swarup Damodar's place of residence in Puri which is located near Bhaktivinode Thakur's "bhakti kutir", near the ocean at Svarga Dwar. He disappeared on the second day of the bright fortnight in the month of Asar.
