Introduction

This booklet aims to establish a broader appreciation for Sri Advaita Acarya, that great Personality of Godhead who was responsible for the Vaisnava-renaissance in the age of Kali (the present age of quarrel), i.e. the hare krsna sankirtana-religion. One might wonder why I call Sri Advaita Acarya responsible for giving prema, love of God, to the whole world, although this is usually being said of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu. It was out of Sri Advaita Prabhu's unlimited kindness upon, and pity for, suffering humanity that He invoked the advent of Sri Caitanya with offerings of Ganga-water and Tulasi-leaves. Just as a person who guides a thirsty man lost in the desert to an oasis is as valuable as the oasis itself, so too Sri Advaita Prabhu deserves to be called the most munificent personality of God, because He was actually responsible for the Lord's appearance.

Since I am an initiate of the Advaita-parivara, the disciplic succession coming from Sri Advaita Acarya, my guru has made it my duty to glorify Sri Advaita outside of lndia. All over the world the glories of Sriman Mahaprabhu and Sri Nityananda are being sung now, but does anyone appreciate or recognize the significance of Advaita Prabhu's role in establishing this wonderful Hare Krsna religion of love?

The sources for this booklet are historic scriptures like Laudiya Krsna dasa's 'Balya Lila Sutram', Sri Isana Nagara's 'Advaita Prakas', Sri Haricaran dasa's 'Advaita Mangala, Khanda.vasi Sri Nityananda dasa's 'Prema Vilasa', Srila Kavi Karnapura's Caitanya Candrodaya Natakam' as well as, of course, Sri Caitanya Bhagavata and Sri Caitanya Caritamrtass.
