An interesting analasys on Sri Rupa's ( I believe) verse in salutation to Sriman Mahaprabhu was picked up a while ago.namo mahAvadAnyAya kRSNaprema pradAya te/
kRSNAya kRSNa-caitanya-nAmne gauratviSe namah/
Salutation unto Sri Krsna by the name
Krsna Caitanya called;
salutation to thee the mahAvadAnya, the most munificent doner (here's the quality or guna);salutation to the bountious bestower of Krsna prema ( here's the lila ); and to thee who radiates the fair luster of burnished gold ( here's the rupa or beauty) joyous salutation again and again.
So in one anusthubh verse the four aspects of nama, rupa, guna and lila have been depicted by way of humble salutation. aha zrIcaitanya mano'bhiSThaM sthApitaM yena bhUtale/
so'yaM rupah kadA mayhaM dadAtisvapadAnkitam//
When will that same Sri Rupa, who firmly established the inner desire of Sri Caitanya in this world, grant me the proximity of his blessed feet?

Repeated salutations to the embodiement of blissful sports,
Sri Caitanya candra, whose lustrous divine beauty
has the radience of gold and who is the bountious bestower
of the greatest love-rapture ( mahApremarasa ).
