CC Ādi 8.81
তাঁর আজ্ঞা লঞা লিখি যাহাতে কল্যাণ ॥ ৮১ ॥
tāṅra ājñā lañā likhi yāhāte kalyāṇa
I took permission from Śrīla Vṛndāvana dāsa Ṭhākura by praying at his lotus feet, and upon receiving his order I have attempted to write this auspicious literature.
Śrīla Kṛṣṇadāsa Kavirāja Gosvāmī took permission not only from the Vaiṣṇavas and Madana-mohana but also from Vṛndāvana dāsa Ṭhākura, who is understood to be the Vyāsa of the pastimes of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu.
