Lakshmipati

Lakshmipati (1420–1487) was the disciple of Vyasa Tirtha and was given the name Lakshmipati Tirtha. Madhavendra Puri—Lakshmipati Tirtha's disciple—is often credited with being the spiritual master of Lord Nityananda. His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada writes in his commentary on Chaitanya-charitamrita (Madhya-lila 3.8.128): “Sri Nityananda Prabhu was initiated by Madhavendra Puri, a sannyasi. According to others, however, He was initiated by Lakshmipati Tirtha.”
