Sanātanagosvāmī (सनातनगोस्वामी) refers to “one of the six Gosvāmīs of Vṛndāvana; elder brother of Rūpa Gosvāmī and author of numerous literatures, the most prominent of which are the Hari-bhakti-vilāsa and Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta”.

Sanātanagosvāmī (सनातनगोस्वामी) refers to:—An eternal associate of Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu and elder brother of Rūpa Gosvāmī. Śrīmān Mahāprabhu personally instructed him on the principles of bhakti and ordered him to write books explaining these principles and to excavate the lost places of kṛṣṇa-līlā in Vraja. His Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta is considered to be the earliest of the Gosvāmī writings and the source of inspiration for many other works. He wrote a famous commentary on the Tenth Canto of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, originally titled Vaiṣṇava-toṣanī, which later became known as Bṛhad Vaiṣṇava-toṣaṇī after Śrīla Jīva Gosvāmī wrote a commentary on the Tenth Canto known as Laghu Vaiṣṇava-toṣaṇī. He also enumerated the basic principles of bhakti in the book Haribhakti-vilāsa. According to Gaura-gaṇoddeṣa-dīpikā (181), he is Lavaṅga Mañjarī in kṛṣṇa-līlā. (cf. Glossary page from Śrī Bṛhad-bhāgavatāmṛta).
Vaishnava (वैष्णव, vaiṣṇava) or vaishnavism (vaiṣṇavism) represents a tradition of Hinduism worshipping Vishnu as the supreme Lord. Similar to the Shaktism and Shaivism traditions, Vaishnavism also developed as an individual movement, famous for its exposition of the dashavatara (‘ten avatars of Vishnu’).
