Kaunteya Putra Das: Sri Chaitanaya Mahaprabhu Organized four sankirtana parties, each having two mridangas. After Some Consideration , the Lord selected Svarupa Damodara as the leader of the first party ,and five assistants were chosen to respond to his chanting .Damodara Pandita ,Narayana ,Govinda Datta ,Raghava Pandita , and Shri Govinda Nanda. Advati Acharya was ordered to dance in this group.

A Second Party was formed ,having Shrivasa Thakura as the lead singer .Gangadasa,Haridasa ,Shriman ,Shubhananda and Shri Rama Pandita were the responsive singers and Nityananda Prabhu was selected to dance.

Mukunda became the chief singer in the third party, the responsive singers were Vasudeva, Gopinatha , Murari ,Shrikanta and Vallabha Sena, and Haridasa Thakura was chosen to dance.

In the fourth group, Govinda Ghosh was the lead singer, and the younger Haridasa , Vishnudasa ,Raghava, Madhava Ghosh and ,Vasudeva Ghosh responded ,while Vakreshvara Pandita danced.

Besides these four groups, there was a Party from Kulina-grama , in which Ramananda and Satyaraja were Selected to dance . There was also a party from Shantipura, and Advaita Acharya’s son, Acyutananda, become the dancer. In addition, there was a seventh group fromed by the inhabitants of Khanda, Narahari and Raghunanda were the dancers.

Four of these parties chanted in front of Lord Jagannatha, two were on either side, and another party remained at the rear. The combined sound of the chanting, along with the fourteen mridangas, became tumultuous, causing all of the devotees to practically become mad. All of the Vaishnavas Came together like clouds, and as they chanted the holy name of the Lord, tears of ecstasy fell from their eyes like rainfall.
