Final Order and Last Pastime of Lord Advaita Acharya

 

Lord Advaita Acharya spoke to his sons, ear sons, please hear My distress. My wicked relations are blaspheming Gauranga, and My heart cannot tolerate it. In order to atone for this I will certainly leave My body. Therefore inform Gauranga's dear devotees about My desire and bring them here.?

Saying this, my Prabhu became stunned. Shri Acyuta quickly sent news to everyone. On receiving Advaita Prabhu's message, Viracandra came to Shantipura along with his devotees. Gauridasa Pandita came from Ambika, and all the devotees came from Navadvipa. Narahari Sarakara Thakura came with his associates, and the great Pandita Kavi-karnapura came. Shyamadasa, Vishnudasa, Shri Yadunandana, and Advaita's other dear disciples all came to Shantipura and offered prayers and obeisances at His feet.

 

Advaita Prabhu said, ou are all dear to Me. Please carry out this one instruction. My desire is that you preach Shri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu's qualities and teachings as far as you are able. The association of uncivilized nonbelievers who are envious of Gauranga should certainly be given up. Now all of you chant the name of Gauranga and fulfill My long cherished desire.?

On hearing His words, all the devotees were overwhelmed with ecstasy, and they began chanting the name and qualities of Lord Gauranga. Shri Acyuta, Krishna Mishra, Gopala Thakura, Viracandra Prabhu, and Narahari became jubilant. Gauridasa Pandita, Damodara Pandita, and five others danced most charmingly.

 

Advaita Prabhu was overwhelmed with love on hearing the glories of Lord Gauranga. He joined the sankirtana party and began to dance. Gradually the waves of that ocean of sankirtana began to expand, and Shri Advaita became immersed in that ocean with great ecstasy. His whole body was decorated with all the jewels of ecstatic symptoms. He shed tears and He called out, here is Gauranga, My life and soul??

No living entity can display the wonderful mood that was exhibited by Advaita Prabhu. The devotees surrounded the Lord and cried in ecstasy. Then Advaita Prabhu exclaimed, found Gauranga!?All His hairs stood on end, so that His body resembled a kadamba flower. Then all of a sudden He entered the temple of Madana-gopala and disappeared from the vision of mundane people.

 

The devotees rushed here and there looking for Prabhu, but being unable to see Him, they cried and rolled in the dust. Understanding that Advaita had disappeared, Acyuta cried loudly and said to Gaura's devotees, here was one branch of the desire tree of Lord Gauranga's ecstatic love remaining after His disappearance, therefore Gauranga's pastimes had not ended. Today, however, Gaura's pastimes have come to an end.?

(Text from Chapter 22 of Advaita Prakasha written by Ishana Nagara)

Let all the devotees of Lord Nityananda and Gaurnaga derive inspiration from this last order of Advaita Acharya and take up the chanting of Lord Gaurnaga's name with utmost humility and sincerity and thus become eligible to obtain the mercy of Sri Advaita Acharya.
