Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 16.208
mādhava-dāsa-gṛhe tathā śacīra nandana
lakṣa-koṭi loka tathā pāila daraśana
mādhava-dāsa-gṛhe — at the house of Mādhava dāsa; tathā — there; śacīra nandana — the son of mother Śacī; lakṣa-koṭi loka — many hundreds of thousands of people; tathā — there; pāila daraśana — got His audience.
When the Lord stayed at the house of Mādhava dāsa, many hundreds of thousands of people came to see Him.
Mādhava dāsa is identified as follows. In the family of Śrīkara Caṭṭopādhyāya, Yudhiṣṭhira Caṭṭopādhyāya took his birth. Formerly, he and his family members lived in Bilvagrāma and Pāṭūli. From there he went to Kuliyā-pāhāḍapura, formerly known as Pāḍapura. The eldest son of Yudhiṣṭhira Caṭṭopādhyāya was known as Mādhava dāsa, the second son was called Haridāsa, and the youngest son was called Kṛṣṇasampatti Caṭṭopādhyāya. The three brothers' nicknames were Chakaḍi, Tinakaḍi and Dukaḍi. The grandson of Mādhava dāsa was named Vaḿśīvadana, and, during the time of Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura, his grandson Rāmacandra and their descendants were still living at Vāghnāpāḍā, or Vaiñcī.
