Alaṅkārakaustubha (अलङ्कारकौस्तुभ) is the name of a book authored by Kavi Karṇapūra: one of the three sons of Śivānanda Sena. His brothers were named Caitanya dāsa and Rāma dāsa. His real name was Paramānanda Sena, but he was given the names Purī dāsa and Karṇapūra by Śrīman Mahāprabhu. When he was a young boy he sucked the toe of Mahāprabhu. He was a superlative writer and poet. He wrote many famous books, [including Alaṅkārakaustubha].
