February 16, 2013. Sri Advaita Acarya appearance.

Advaita Acharya, an intimate associate of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, is considered an incarnation of Sadasiva and Maha- Visnu. It was in response to His calls that Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu descended to this world. 

Advaita Acarya’s fathers’ name was Kuvera Pandita. Before Advaita Acarya’s birth, Kuvera Pandita performed austerities to please Lord Siva, that is, Sadasiva. After a long time, Siva became pleased with him and told him, “You may ask me for any boon.”

Kuvera Pandita then said, “I want a son like you. I want a son who is as qualified as you.”


Siva replied, “This is impossible, so I will personally come as your son.”


Thus, Sadasiva appeared as his son.


At the time of his birth, Advaita Acarya was given the name Kamalaksa, which means ‘one who has very beautiful lotus eyes’. He was very intelligent, and in a few years he completed his study of all the Vedic scriptures and also Sanskrit grammar.


His father was a servant of the king. One day, when he was about five or six years old, his father took him to the royal palace, where there was a temple of the demigoddess Devi (Kali). There, the king and his father offered their obeisances to Kali, but that boy, Kamalaksa, did not do so. Seeing this, the king became angry,


Kamalaksa’s father said, “The king is angry. I am his servant. Why are you not offering obeisances to Kali? Kali is a very exalted demigoddess, and she can give any boon. Everyone respects her, so you should also respect her and offer your obeisances.


Kamalaksa replied, “If I will do so, Kali will be destroyed.”


Saying this, he offered his obeisances. At once there was an explosion, and the deity of Kali broke into many pieces.


All those who were present began saying, “Oh, who is he?” Why did this happen?” The answer is that Advaita Acarya is Sadasiva and in this world Kali is Lord Siva’s wife. She is his sakti, or power. She feels herself subordinate to her husband and cannot tolerate his bowing down to her. That is why her deity exploded. 



Un asociado intimo de Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu, es considerado una encarnación de Sadasiva y Maha-Vishnu. Fue en respuesta a Sus llamados que Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu vino a este mundo. Viendo la condición degradada de las personas en Kali-Yuga, esta era de degradación, Sri Advaita Acarya adoró al Señor Krishna en las orillas del Ganges, con agua del propio Ganges y hojas de Tulasi, pidiendo fervorosamente y suplicando que el Señor viniese a salvar a las almas condicionadas. A causa de la devoción pura y compasión de Sri Advaita Acarya, el Señor Krishna vino como Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. Vea "Sri Caitanya-caritamrta", Adi-lila, cap. 6.
