Advaita Ācārya’s Roaring Call

A lecture delivered by Śrī Śrīmad Gour Govinda Swami Mahārāja 
on 25th January 1996 in Nairobi, Kenya, Africa.

Today we are observing Advaita Ācārya’s appearance day, which is on saptami tithi in the month of Māgha. Advaita Ācārya appeared first, then He made Mahāprabhu, Kṛṣṇa, appear. By Advaita Ācārya’s calling Kṛṣṇa appeared. Therefore it is a very auspicious day so we should speak something on Śrīla Advaita Ācārya and beg for His mercy. If He bestows His mercy on us then we can get Caitanya Nitai, otherwise we cannot.

He Is the Lord and the Incarnation of the Lord’s Devotee

First we should know who Advaita Ācārya is. It is mentioned in Caitanya-caritāmṛta Ādi-līlā,

mahā-viṣṇur jagat-kartā
māyayā yaḥ sṛjaty adaḥ
tasyāvatāra evāyam
advaitācārya īśvaraḥ

“Lord Advaita Ācārya is the incarnation of Mahā-Viṣṇu, whose main function is to create the cosmic world through the actions of māyā.” (Caitanya-caritāmṛta Ādi-līlā 1.12)

advaitaṁ hariṇādvaitād
ācāryaṁ bhakti-śaṁsanāt
bhaktāvatāram īśaṁ tam
advaitācāryam āśraye

”Because He is non-different from Hari, the Supreme Lord, He is called Advaita, and because He propagates the cult of devotion, He is called Ācārya. He is the Lord and the incarnation of the Lord’s devotee. Therefore I take shelter of Him.” (Caitanya-caritāmṛta Ādi-līlā 1.13)

Gaura-gaṇoddeśa-dīpikā states,

bhaktāvatāra ācāryo’dvaito yaḥ śrī-sadāśivaḥ
(Gaura-gaṇoddeśa-dīpikā 11)

That means Advaita Ācārya is bhakta-avatāra.

pañca-tattvātmakaṁ kṛṣṇaṁ
bhaktāvatāraṁ bhaktākhyaṁ
namāmi bhakta-śaktikam

 “I offer my obeisances unto the Supreme Lord, Kṛṣṇa, who is non-different from His features as a devotee, devotional incarnation, devotional manifestation, pure devotee and devotional energy.” (Caitanya-caritāmṛta Ādi-līlā 7.6)

    pamho agtACBSP BHAIMI EKADASI KI JAI thank you for posting this nice article jaya jaya advaita isvara avatara krsna avatari kaila jagat nistara all glories to advaita prabhu the incarnation of the supreme personality of godhead he induced krsna to descent and thus delivered the entire world by HIS mercy we get delivered SRILA GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJ also used to say don’t think that this maha mantra hare krsna don’t bring you to perfection because it will do it to listen with rapt attention at brahma muhurta time the maha mantra hare krsna destroy all the sinful reactions before reading few chapter of the SRIMAD BHAGAVAD GITA daily then chanting after the mangala carana prayers artik and if one can offer ghee lamp to VRINDA DEVI SRILA PRABHUPADA and SRI NARASIMHA DEVA which is rishi chanda tu gayatri nrsimha devata vibhuh the gayatri is the metre of our deviotional service lord brahma is the sage and SNSD is the deity to worship in all the universes then the spiritual life will be more easy SRI ADVAITA ACAHARYA is the origin of all maha maya rupas who are coming out from the pores of HIS body perspiration through HIS breathing therefore nobody knows us better then HIM who could induce SRI GAURANGA MAHAPRABHU to descent,BABLA MANDIR in santipur which is the bhajan kutir of SRI ADVAITA ACHARYA I mean that same place where SRI ADVAITA CAHARYA called SRI CAITANYA MAHAPRABHU to descend is still worshipped nowadays there by qualified pujaris very kind people they gave me a room inside their temple to rest there for the night they use that room for madhukari people who always search for the causeless mercy of SRI ADVAITA ACHARYA by distributing prasada there in that special day that LORD GAURANGA MAHAPRABHU did the same by saying whoever do this dana charity in santipur on this day will achieve prem puman artho Mahan very soon the c.c. also say that one can achieve the same result by taking darshan of SRI MADANA MOHAN in karoli and SRI RADHA GOVINDAJI &SRI RADHA GOPINATH in Jaipur in the same day otherwise to offer the respectful obeisances three times daily to the sambandha abhideya and prayojana (which is the heart and soul of all the brahma gaudiya sampradaya) is good as good as to take darshan of all three vaisnava main deities by the causeless mercy of the bhajan kutir babla mandir of SRI ADVAITA ACHARYA in santipur I been able to get all this mercy by progressing through that famous lava matra in suddha nama which will give to any sincere sadhaka that precious prem puman artho Mahan which is the goal of life to be attain by doing all this things regulary by following SRI ADVAITA ACAHARYA kahe tumi yahan sei brindavan mora bhagye c.c 3.33 this is our fortune said once SRI ADVAITA ACHARYA to SRI GAURANGA MAHAPRABHU that wherever we chant hare krsna that’s SRI VRINDAVAN DHAM I just trying to follow HDG SRILA GAURA GOVINDA vani seva by avoiding even a single day to go without krsna katha because the bad days are already a lot therefore we need to share more krsna katha daily to find out what SRI ADVAITA ACHARYA is trying to tell us through our daily sadhana bhakti yoga by doing sadhu sanga nama kirtana bhagavata sravana Mathura vasa and sri murtira sevana constantly at least we can become serious madhyama adhikari sadhakas by practicing ahaituki apratihata to make sure the factor time is always connected with guru sadhu and sastra otherwise the factor time get connected with the external energy of the lord through the three gunas of material nature we got the proper spiritual food in this first most auspicious kali yuga through the divine appearances of such exalted visnu tattvam as SRI ADVAITA ACHARYA SRI NITYANANDA PRABHU SRI GAURANGA MAHAPRABHU then jiva tattvam as SRILA PRABHUPADA SRILA BHAKTIVINODA SRILA BHAKTISIDDHANTA SRILA GAURA GOVINDA MAHARAJ etc… now we need just to feed mind body and spirit daily through this super proper food to reach the platform of goodness to be promoted at least to the planets of the wise people at the end of our short and troublesome journey in the foreign land of maha maya because unless one is lucky enough to reach the pure goodness one have to pass through sattvavalambi para sattvam visuddha sattvam the mode of the three gunas of material nature expriences to become a yesam tv anta gatam papam jananam punya karmanam bg 7.28 because as soon as our senses become pure as soon as the senses gratification become bitter insignificant and that’s the fourth dimension vasudeva visuddha sattvam which allowed the intelligent class of people to discriminate between dead and dirty things and living pure things by avoiding to deal with the dead matter free from anarthas prajalpas kapatya kutinadi etc… thank you for your satsanga agtSP ys haribol
