term (gosvāmī), name (Gosvāmī)
one who is the master of his senses; a title for those in the renounced order of life. This often refers to the renowned followers of Caitanya Mahāprabhu who adopted the lifestyle of mendicants. Descendants of the relatives of such Gosvāmīs or of their servants often adopt this title merely on the basis of birth. In this way, the title Gosvāmī has evolved into use as a surname. Leading temple administrators are also sometimes referred to as Gosvāmīs
