Advaita Acarya is Sadashiva like Vishnu. So He is non-different from Visnu, so He is Advaita. And he is the preacher of the holynames and giving prema; so he is Acarya. His father’s name was Kuvera. He was doing austerities for Sadashiva. After a long time, Shiva became happy and told that I will come as your son. So Sadashiva came as his son [Advaita Acarya].
At that time he was given the name Kamalaksa. Kamalaksa means very beautiful lotus eyes. He was very intelligent. So he studied all the scriptures and grammar and all other things in just a few years.
