“My identify, ‘Advaita,’ can be becoming if I’m able to induce Krsna to inaugurate the motion of the chanting of the holy identify.”
Purport: The nondualist Mayavadi thinker who falsely believes that he’s nondifferent from the Lord is unable to name Him like Advaita Prabhu. Advaita Prabhu is nondifferent from the Lord, but in His relationship with the Lord He doesn’t merge with Him however eternally renders service unto Him as a plenary ativan portion. This is inconceivable for Mayavadis as a result of they assume when it comes to mundane sense notion and due to this fact assume that nondualism necessitates dropping one’s separate identification. It is evident from this verse, nevertheless, that Advaita Prabhu, though retaining His separate identification, is nondifferent from the Lord.
Sri Caitanya Mahaprabhu preached the philosophy of inconceivable, simultaneous oneness with the Lord and distinction from Him. Conceivable dualism and monism are conceptions of the imperfect senses, that are unable to succeed in the Transcendence as a result of the Transcendence is past the conception of restricted efficiency. The actions of Sri Advaita Prabhu, nevertheless, give tangible proof of inconceivable nondualism. One who due to this fact surrenders unto Sri Advaita Prabhu can simply comply with the philosophy of inconceivable simultaneous dualism and monism.

Advaita Acarya discovered himself in deep misery when he noticed how individuals of up to date occasions had began indulging in excessive sense gratification as a substitute of satisfying the Lord by loving devotional service. In order to ship the fallen conditioned souls, he prayed fervently to the Lord for a number of months by worshiping his shaligram shilas (a stone that Vaishnavas worship as a type of Vishnu) lovingly with sacred Tulasi leaves and Ganges water.
