Sri Syamananda, Srinivasa and Narottama Dasa Thakura are eternal associates of Sri Gaurasundara. For the purpose of preaching the holy message of Sri Caitanya all over the earth they appeared in this world.
Sri Syamananda Prabhu was born in Utkala. His father’s name was Sri Krsna Mandal. His mother’s name was Sri Durika. Sri Krsna Mandal had many sons and daughters who passed away before this son took birth. Because of this misfortune, Sri Krsna Mandal named the boy Dukhi.
