(Kadamba Kanana Maharaja, 30 January 2012, Radhadesh) Why did Advaita Acarya have to worship Krsna to appear? Isn’t Krsna scheduled to appear once in a day of Brahma, in the Age of Kali? So what was the need? The reason that Advaita Acarya had to worship, that someone had to worship, is because Lord Krsna is described as impartial. Therefore He helps living beings to remember and to forget whatever they desire. If they want to forget Him, okay they forget and if they want to remember Him, then Krsna helps accordingly- Krsna is impartial. But the devotee becomes partial. Therefore it takes a devotee to make the Lord appear and to make the Lord become partial. Therefore one devotee had to do that and that was Advaita Acarya. So Advaita Acarya’s role in the appearance of Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu is not to be underestimated but Advaita Acarya is a main player. He is actually one who has great compassion because it is Advaita Acarya as maha-visnu who is interacting with the jivas. Krsna is eternally in Vrndavana and He doesn’t take one step out of Vrndavana; He’s absorbed in His transcendental pastimes. But Advaita Acarya is particularly dealing with the conditioned souls. So He’s like the root, the original compassion- He’s not only the origin of creation but He’s also the origin of the compassion of the Lord. In that way Advaita Acarya is a very important personality.
