So today is Sri Advaita’s day. Advaita Acarya, he was a very great soul and He was the avatar of Mahavishnu and Sadasiva. He was born in Bangladesh in a place called Mahia which is in the north and now it is called Sylhet 3 miles from the Indian border. It is on a sacred river.
He saw that people were very much materialistic and he wanted to give them love of Krishna. But he could not get to change their hearts. He could give liberation but in order to give them love of Krishna that was not easy – only Krishna can do that.
