Advaita Acarya

In this way all the opulences of Advaita Acarya, His faith, devotion, home, riches and everything else were successfully utilized in the worship of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu.


Advaita Acarya set an ideal example for all householder devotees in His reception of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His devotees and in His execution of a daily festival at His home. If one has the proper means and wealth, he should occasionally invite the devotees of Lord Caitanya who are engaged in preaching all over the world and hold a festival at home simply by distributing prasada and talking about Krishna during the day and holding congregational chanting for at least three hours in the evening. This procedure must be adopted in all centers of the Krishna consciousness movement. Thus they will daily perform sankirtana-yajna. In Srimad-Bhagavatam (11.5.32) the daily performance of sankirtana-yajna is recommended for this age. One should worship Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu and His four associates, the Panca-tattva, by distributing prasada and holding congregational chanting. Indeed, that, yajna or sacrifice, is most recommended in this Age of Kali. In this age, other yajnas are not possible to perform, but this yajna can be performed everywhere and anywhere without difficulty.
