"....Sometimes the sahajiya class of devotees opine that Prakasananda Sarasvati and Prabodhananda Sarasvati are the same man. Prabodhananda Sarasvati was a great Vaisnava devotee of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu, but Prakasananda Sarasvati, the head of the Mayavadi sannyasis in Benares, was a different person. Prabodhananda Sarasvati belonged to the Ramanuja-sampradaya, whereas Prakasananda Sarasvati belonged to the Sankaracarya-sampradaya. Prabodhananda Sarasvati wrote a number of books, among which are the Caitanya-candramrta, Radha-rasa-sudha-nidhi, Sangita-madhava, Vrndavana-sataka and Navadvipa-sataka. While traveling in southern India, Caitanya Mahaprabhu met Prabodhananda Sarasvati, who had two brothers, Venkata Bhatta and Tirumalaya Bhatta, who were Vaisnavas of the Ramanuja-sampradaya. Gopala Bhatta Gosvami was the nephew of Prabodhananda Sarasvati. From historical records it is found that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu traveled in South India in the year 1433 sakabda (A.D. 1511) during the Caturmasya period, and it was at that time that He met Prabodhananda, who belonged to the Ramanuja-sampradaya. How then could the same person meet Him as a member of the Sankara-sampradaya in 1435 sakabda, two years later? It is to be concluded that the guess of the sahijiya-sampradaya that Prabodhananda Sarasvati and Prakasananda Sarasvati were the same man is a mistaken idea."
Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi lila 7:14
"Just like Prabodhananda Sarasvati did. He said, dante nidhaya trnakam padayor nipatya. The preaching method he is teaching. Prabodhananda Sarasvati, he was a great devotee of Lord Caitanya. He wrote one book, Caitanya-candramrta, "The Moonlight of Lord Caitanya," in Sanskrit. He belonged to southern India. And his nephew became one of the Gosvamis. When Lord Caitanya was staying at his home, he was at that time householder. Later on he took sannyasa and became Prabodhananda Sarasvati. At that time Gopala Bhatta... Actually, their family title was Bhatta, Bhattacarya. Bhattacarya is given title to the very learned brahmana. Cakravarti, Bhattacarya--these are brahmana's title who are very learned, very influential. So Bhattacarya. So at that time Gopala Bhatta Gosvami was little boy. So Lord Caitanya stayed with this Venkata, Venkatanatha. His name was Venkata. Later on he became Prabodhananda Sarasvati."
