"To write this book on Caitanya's elder companion, Advaita Acarya, Manring has done everything humanly possible: traveled throughout West Bengal and Bangladesh, consulted archives, unearthed manuscripts, and interviewed scholars and descendants. This is the final, conclusive word on Advaita Acarya." – Rachel Fell McDermott, Barnard College, author of Singing to the Goddess: Poems to Kali and Uma from Bengal
