Father - Kuvera Pandit

Son - Acyutananda, Krsna Misra and Gopala dasa
Disciple of Madhavendra Puri
Spiritual Master of Srinatha Pandit

Sri Advaita Acarya, 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. Seeing the degraded condition of the people in Kali Yuga, the Age of Quarrel, Sri Advaita Acarya worshiped Lord Krsna on the banks of the Ganges with Ganges water and tulasi leaves, crying out and begging for the Lord to come save the suffering souls. Because of Sri Advaita Acarya's pure devotion and compassion, Lord Krsna descended as Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu.
(See Sri Caitanya-caritamrta, Adi-lila, Chapter 6.)
