The foremost of all the Vaisnavas who reside at Navadwip is Ärî Advaita Âcârya, whose virtuous presence has made all the worlds blessed. He is the most prominent preceptor in all fields including knowledge, renunciation and devotion. In explaining Kèëòa-bhakti he is like unto Lord Sankara himself, and whatever scriptures that exist within the three worlds he explains in the light of Kèëòa-bhakti.

With the intense eagerness he continually worships Ärî Kèëòa with Tulasi manjaris and Ganges water. By the momentum of his spiritual force, his loud shouts pierce the coverings of this universe and, resounding throughout Vaikuntha, reach the ears of Ärî Kèëòa. Hearing this loving summons saturated with devotion, Ärî Kèëòa advents Himself.

"All glories to Advaita Prabhu, the incarnation of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. He induced Kèëòa to descend and thus delivered the entire world." (Cc Antya 8.4)

"On the seventh day of the bright fortnight of the month of Magh, the great ocean of ecstasy swelled to its limits, being forcibly attracted by the moon of Advaita, Who appeared from the womb of Ärî Nabhadevi as the moon appears in the autumn sky. His father, Ärî Kuvera Pandit floated in that ocean of joy. In great happiness gave many gifts in charity to the brahmanas (who voluntarily accept vows of poverty). Very quietly he approached the maternity room to get a glimpse of his newborn son. Then his own face began to shine by the reflected light of that moon-like personage. The residents of Navagram came running to see the child. Everyone remarked that they had never seen such a beautiful baby. What a pious activities his father must have been performed to get such a jewel of a son, and that in his old age? Thus Ghanasyama sings about this occasion." (B.R.12.1759) The child was named Mongal and his other name was Kamalaksa.

Advaita Âcârya is the combined incarnation of Maha Visnu and Sadasiva (who resides in Goloka). His two consorts, Sita and Ärî are manifestations of Yoga Maya. Once when Advaita performed worship, whatever gods and demigods He used to meditate upon He saw all gathered at Lord Caitanya's lotus feet, offering prayers. Raising up his two hands, Advaita exclaimed in great ecstasy, "Today all the days of my life have produced a succesful result, as all my desires have been fulfilled. My birth and activities have finally born fruit. I have directly perceived Your two lotus feet, which are proclaimed throughout the four Vedas but are unattainable thereby. Now, by Your causeless mercy, You have revealed Yourself to Me."

Mahaprabhu replied, "Âcârya, now you should perform My worship." First Advaita Âcârya washed the Lord's two lotus feet with water scented by flower petals and then with water scented with sandalwood. Then He placed on His lotus feet Tulasi manjari dipped in sandalwood paste along with arghya - an auspicious offering of rice, durva grass, yogurt etc. His eyes brimming with tears, he offered incense, ghee lamps, flowers, sandalwood paste, and some foodstuffs. After offering various prayers he loudly proclaimed the Lord's glories with auspicious shouts. "All glories to the Lord and maintainer of the universe, the Lord of all that lives. All glories to Gauracandra, the ocean of mercy. All glories to the most munificent incarnation of Ärî Kèëòa Caitanya Mahaprabhu, whose form is all-enchanting. All glories to He who is decorated with the ornaments of Ärî Vatsa and Kaustubha. All glories to He who has revealed the Hare Kèëòa Maha-mantra. All glories to He who enjoys the pastimes of accepting devotion unto Himself. All glories to Mahaprabhu who reclines on the bed of Ananta Sesa. All glories to the refuge of all living entities. (C.B.Mad. 6.116)

Hearing Advaita's prayer's Mahaprabhu replied, "My dear Âcârya, I am very pleased by your prayers. Now you can ask from me any benediction you like."

Then Advaita requested that, "My only request is that you distribute love of Kèëòa even to women, laborers and the ignorant fools as well. (C.B. Mad. 6.167)

A Nrsimha-sila and Deities, fashioned after a picture of Ärî Ärî Madan-Gopal that were worshiped by Advaita Âcârya are still residing at Santipur in Madan-Gopal Para. Santipur is a short distance from Kèëòanagar by bus.

The place on the banks of the Gaôgâ where Advaita Âcârya worshipped salagram and called out to the Lord to please descend to the world is known today as Babla. A temple has been built in memory of Advaita Âcârya's pastimes there. This place can be reached by rickshaw from Santipur.

Appearance: The seventh day of the bright fortnight of the month of Magha, the moon of Advaita appeared from the womb of Ärî Nabhadevi.
