Rayar Mrittika mahima – Gyaan Bhakti Shree:Punya Vardhana : – Mey Syadbhayapaha !

Bahgavata says Prahalaad always advised to anoint oneself with dust below the feet of Gyaani .. this dust should be applied as abhisheka to all the body … body should get drenched with the Paadkanjarajas  [ yatpaadkanjarajasa paribhooshitaanga ]

Just as we adorn our body with beautiful gold ornaments and feel happy .. so also we must adorn [ paribhooshan ]  with the dust [ rajas ] of the feet of ANSHA of PRAHALAAD raya RAYARU or the mrittika of RAYAR brindavaan .. This will be the true alankaara for the body …

Yatpaadpadmamadhupaayit manasa – those who are intoxicated by the honey of the lotus namely feet of RAYARU … and even in such intoxication still aspire for more honey and the mind is still concentrated on the lotus feet in aspiration …

Yatpaadpadma padma parikeertan jeerna vacha – Those who relentlessly speak about RAYAR mahima .. those whose tongue and words have exhausted in the praise of RAGAHVENDRA swamy and his greatness .. those who spend time in only such praises  these devotees of RAGHVENDRA swmay who live their life just by serving Raghavendra swamy , such devotees [ who have annointed with RAYAR mrittika ] , if Someone happens to see , all his sins gets destroyed like a DEnse Forest which has been ignited by the fire …just reduced to ashes [ like KHANDAV dahan ] …

If The devotee’s darshan[ glimpse ] can cause such an effect , Oh RAGHVENDRA , then You are served by these devotees day and night , what could be the effect of your seva and darshan .. and how much more could be the effect and mahima of the LORD NARSIMHA who is relentlessly served by you Oh GURUSARVABHAMA , It is beyond imagination …

Note – in the previous lines we have mentioned praises what are they ?

Oh RAGHEVENDRA you are sarvatantra svantantra -

IN the previous era , todays era and eras to come , , there were and are many a philosophies like Baudha charvaak etc ….infinite philosophies in vogue ..OUR GURU RAGHAVENDRA swamy knows all these philosophies from roots till the surface in its entirety and hence HE is known as SARVATANTRA SWATANTRA …

SREEMADHVAMATVARDHAN – the wealth of Moksha can be had by the shastras propounded by SriMadanandteertha .., our Guru has written many a commentaries on the ACHARYA’s philosophy like PARIMALA etc …and  brought to the fore to a gaining heights propagating  the philosophy of MADHVACHARYA …

WHile giving sanyaasa , the guru keeps his palm on the head of the shishya [ student ] …and then gives the upadesha of ‘PRANAV’ mantra .. with this shishya is initiated into sanyasaashrama … This is a new birth to a shishya ,.. just as we take new birth in this world , our previous birth’s relations , family wealth and belongings and all other sambandha cuts off …. similarly with this new ashrama the family relations cuts off …  thus a new beginning a new birth occurs … This begins with the placing of palm of the GURU …. so the shishya sanyasi is said to have been born from the palms of the GURU .. and placing the palm is giving vara [ boon ] so also the sanyasi is VARAputra … son out of boon of guru …

RAGHAVENDRA swamy is called asVIJAYEENDRAKARABJOTTHAM SUDHEENDRA VARAPUTRA by appanacharya … RAGHAVENDRA swamy son born out of [ vara putra ] boon of SUDHEENDRA TEERTHARU who in turn   was blessed by the palm of very dynamic VIJAYEENDRA TEERTHARU [ karsanjaat ]


Those who serve this great guru [ by having his padodaka , mrittika and serving his devotees ] one will get

  1.  HARI sarvottamatva gyana
  2. ..hari bhakti …
  3. a very good son and progeny [ grandsons included ] 
  4. to spend time in satkalakshepa [ better spiritual time pass ]  a long life
  5. much fame and much wealth to enjoy
  6. all along one will get much punya [ which will also ensure good next birth  , everauspiciousness in this birth , destroying day-to-day sins and mishaps o day starts with only good things  ]
  7. all the items and objects of enjoyments and collectibles souvenirs giving a worthy lifestyle
  8. what has been collected and obtained with hard work is of no use if it does not remain stable .. nothing remains stable if it is not increasing  so wealth and articles and pleasure objects one must always keep on increasing else it gets destroyed … So rayar seva keep on increasing our status wealth and earnings and amassed objects of desire
  9. All the mentioned above[ pleasures and good results ] if it is not obtained or is not up to mark or is failing or decreasing or is being hurt , wounded or partially suffered setback … causes lots of anxiety .. even if they are intact the fear of losing them lingers in the mind .. this fear is a great obstacle to the journey of life and also for peaceful existence …SHRIRAGHVENDRA who is best among the gurus ..who is guru for all the previously and presently known gurus … saves us from all these fear by destroying the possibility of angst .. and instilling the confidence of gain pleasure and prosperity  ….

Dustaapatraynashino- Padodaka Mahima !

GURURAYAR PAdodaka – water which has touched the feet of RAYARU ….

When Chakravarti BALi agreed to grant three steps of land to Lord VAMAN … VAMAN [ a dwarf avatara ] of VISHNU instantly turned into a gigantic multidimensional Avatara of Vishnu namely TRIVIKRAMA ,,, Shri Trivikrama when he raised his foot to cover entire antariksha …. his feet went high above the Bramha loka and touched the edge of BRAMHANDA above …His toe as it pierced the BRAMHANDA Kharpara  , SHUDDHODAKA [ APATATVA] water  that prevails outside Bramhanda rushed inside the Bramhanda from the crack that appeared in the BRAMHANDA outer cover due to Toe of VISHNU …

As the water rushed inside , it brushed past the feet [ washing it along ] of LORD TRIVIKRAMA and flew like a river into the BRAMHANDA in various LOKAS … This river came to be known as GANGA …

Just Because it has originated from the feet of LORD VISHNU it is PADODAKA of VISHNU and is very sacred for this reason …

Various other rivers are also sacred for other reasons … These rivers purify the person who takes bath in it .. it cleanses them of their sins if one takes bath or touches it or simply remembers them in heart ..

On a special occasion these give immense PUNYA … if someone takes bath three times  a day everyday . his punya is seamless .. there cannot be any other punya equal to it ….

2. But taking water after washing a feet of Veda bramhana is supposed to give  more punya then trikaal snana in the rivers like GANGA and others ..

3. The originator of GANGA and desireless LORD Krishna has aptly demonstrated this in RAJSOOYA yagnya in Mahabharat by washing the feet of bramhins himself and sprinkling it on his head … thus sowing the importance of Bramhana Padodaka ..

4. Bahagavat also says ” teerthe kurvanti teerthani swatmasthena gadabrutha ”  that even GANGA and other teerthas rivers also become pure by the touch of those bramhins who always are engrossed in the dhyana of SHRIHARI …

5. The Brundavana of RAYARU has sannidhi of all the DEVATAS from BRAMHA to Agni ..It has 700 saligramas and also all the nadi abhimani devatas are present in it ..  The water when poured over it for Abhisheka gets the sparsha of all rivers making it equivalent to all rivers .. along the way it touches the feet of HAYAGREEVA and all the other devatas … making it even more sacred … finally It washes the feet of Sri RAGHAVENDRA who is ever engrossed in SHRIMAN MOOLRAMA and hence it is even most sacred enough to purify GANGA herself …[ that is the reason why RAYARU himself is known as RAGHAVENDRATEERTHA as it purifies teerthas themselves the saint is teertha himself ]

so also as per BAHGAVATA vachan it is conclusive  RAYARY Padodaka is sacred and manifold times imparting punya than trikaal snana sandhya in the river GANGA and other rivers all through the life ….

There are three types of TAPA [ kashta , difficulties, miseries etc ] .

  • The diseases and difficulties  arising inside the body are known as Adhyatmik tapa
  • The difficulties like dog bite , donkey kicks , accidents are Adhibhoutik tapa these are external to body
  • The difficulties arising due to excess rains tsunami famine earthquakes etc are adhidaivik tapa

Again these tapas are of two kinds the above mentioned are malevolent tapas … these can be benvolent as well …benevolent tapas are

  • The difficulties experienced during Upavas like EKADASHI etc is Adhyatmik tapa
  • the difficulties during panchagni tapasya etc are Adhibhoutik tapa
  • The difficulties caused by Devatas to Rantidev , Harishchandra etc are Adhidaivik tapa

These later tapas result in the purification of mind and finally lead to MOKSHA ..These are Uttamatapatraya.. The opposite to these are known as DUSHTATAPATRAYA.

The dustapatraya of devotees are destroyed by the sevana [ by sprinkling drinking of ] Rayar PADODAKA ..

THere are many types of VANDHYA – [ women having no children ] ..

  • some do not conceive early ..
  • some frequently undergo miscarriages
  • some give rise still-born baby again and again
  • some give birth to one child  and then stop conceiving
  • Some get children after long time late in their life
  • Some absolve the sins of previous life or janmantar sins by prayashchittas like HARIVANSHA purana shravana etc and then conceive and get birth of child .
  • Some get children after prayaschitta [ vrata niyama upavasa japa homa havana etc]   and  medicines [ ayurveda ]
  • Some do not get children even after all the above …
  • the last one is known as MAHAVANDHYA ..

This MAHAVANDHYA too if they take with utmost devotion everyday without fail the padodaka of SHRIRAGHAVENDRA  will get a son [ MAHAVANDHYA suputraprado ] not just a son but an able UTTAMA putra ..

Some are handicapped by birth due to previous life sins .. some become handicapped by the sins in this very life ..All these people if they partake Padodaka will get their sins destroyed and regain their organs limbs etc … EVen if there are defects in the body or they will get resolved by regular sevan of PAdodaka ..They will be very strong and work ably thereafter .. [ those who feel shy of their personalities due to inabilities low confidence stammering vikruti etc all of them will benefit with optimum praiseworthy qualities by regularly taking the padodaka ]

If the tapatrayas are experienced out of bad placements of planets [ astangata neecha khala kopa vikala deena avasthas ] like shani mangal rahu ketu surya etc … or if the miseries are owing to BRAMHAHATYA abhichara , etc or due to some MAHAPATAKA terrible sins attacking again and again onto us[ grahamahapapaapahastam shraye ] .. all these difficulties will get destroyed by the PADODAKA of our Guru Shri Raghavendra


Raghavendra Suprabhaat-3 !


Oh Raghavendraguruvarya , just as large black bees are ever engrossed in the lotus flower lost in collecting  nectar from it …. similarly Guru Raghavendra is ever engrossed in the LOTUS FEET OF  MOOLRAAMAA …..

Acharya SRIMADANANDTEERTHA’s Philosophy [ Madhvamat] is very pleasant and  exhilarating like an ocean of nectar …[ amrutsamudra]   … Moon is said to have arisen from the ocean[ during amrutmanthan ] similarly  Oh RAGHAVENDRA GURU YOU are the  MOON that has taken avatara  from this amrutsamudra of MADHWACHARYA’s tatvavada [ sripoornabodhamataramyasudhabdi chandra ] .

You have taken birth in auspicious dynasty of SHRI GAUTAM muni ..Just Like SUN brightens the day in the entire universe . so also you have brightened the lineage of entire GAUTAM clan ..Oh RAGHAVENDRA a very good auspicious morning be to you ….. [ suprabhatam ]

Shloka 9

Oh RAGHAVENDRA swamiye .. you have written a book named “BHATTSANGRAH ” . Shree krishna has shown a very large bramhanda [universe ] in his very small mouth to YASHODADEVI .. similarly JAIMINI rishi and his disciples found all the important topics  of their writings about  the huge [very large ] “POORVAMIMANSA SHASHTRA ” covered in minute details in this very small GRANTHA named BHATTSANGRAHA  .. It gave them immense pleasure seeing such a compact compendium cum commentary .. and they all are felicitating You and respect you till date … Oh Guru RAGHAVENDRA a very good auspicious morning to YOU [SUPRABHAATAM ]

shloka 10

Oh YATISARVABHOUMA .. YOU HAVE written a granth to elaborate the meanings of ” BRAMHA SUTRAS ” is called as ” TANTRADEEPIKA ” .. it is very compact small granth .. it contains very short sentences …sutras in it are very lucid and compact and of few letters … BUt they elaborate all the meaning of BRAMHASUTRA in a detailed manner … a lamp  though smaller in size ,when it gives light enough to brighten entire world .. then it is no longer said to be a small lamp , it is praised as wonder lamp- atishayadeepa  .. Oh guru your work namely TANTARADEEPIKA is aptly named so  and is like atishaydeepa … by writing this work you have immensely served the author of BRAMHA SUTRA LORD VEDVYASA .. who it seems is also immensely pleased by your work and it can be seen in his grace on you  in the form of adoration and fame  that comes from all corners  of universe , towards you OH RAGHAVENDRA a very auspicious good morning be to you [ SUPRABHAATAM ]

Shloka 11

Oh YATIVARYA … there are many shastras .. each shastra has its own moolpurush [ legacy author]  all other authors bequest/bequeath from its original content … in their writings… such moolpurushas like ‘PANINI , JAIMINI , GAUTAM , PARASHAR .. all these authors have inspected your works … ALl the topics from their granthas find place in your books … and what they have missed and what they could not elaborate or dwell upon even such topics also are included in your writings ,… Finding all their contents very well compiled about their shastra  All the rishis were extremely happy ,,.. finding newer topics which they could not dwell upon and seeing its elaboration and lucid  expression with ease and clairvoyance .. they were extremely humbled …. Not one granthakarta but everyone were humbled by their new experience and exploration of newer concepts in their own shastra … their respect towards RAGHAVENDRA swamy increased ..and they are bestowing their  love devotion and  admiration … Oh RAGHAVENDRA a very auspicious good morning be to YOu [ SUPRABHATAM ]

note : every scholar studies a shastra .. and majors in that shastra … namely VYAKARANA [ grammar ] MIMAMSA ..[epistemology ] ,nyaya [ logic ]  Jyotish [astrology ]etc .. while studying each refers to a particular author and study his texts … but if one studies only one text and concludes he has mastered the subject . then it would be a folly … and the person would not be considered as a pandit …. a PANDIT should have studied all the aspects of topic or subject … one author might have covered only few topics … some might not have been covered .. these might have been covered in other books on same subject by different authors … finally we find that all authors we are studying are bequeathing their contents from an orginal author who is known as MOOLPURUSHA … other proudly call themselves to be of his legacy .. for example MIMAMSA is written by JAIMINI ..then – The foundational text for the Mimamsa school is the Purva Mimamsa Sutras of Jaimini . A major commentary was composed by Śābara in ca. the 5th or 6th century CE. The school reaches its height with Kumārila Bhaṭṭa and Prabhākara . Both Kumarila Bhatta and Prabhākara (along with Murāri, whose work is no more extant) have written extensive commentaries on Śābara‘s Mimamsasutrabhāshyam. Kumārila Bhatta, Mandana Misra, Parthasarathi Misra, Sucharita Misra, Ramakrishna Bhatta, Madhava Subhodini, Sankara Bhatta, Krsnayajvan, Anantadeva, Gaga Bhatta, Appayya Dikshitar, Paruthiyur Krishna Sastri, Mahomahapadyaya Sri Ramsubba Sastri, Sri Venkatsubba Sastri, Sri A. Chinnaswami Sastri, Sengalipuram Vaidhyanatha Dikshitar were some of the Mimamsa Scholars.

reading one authors book will not clarify the issues …

But when you have done enough sadhan or research in a particular subject you find there are certain more issues which remain unexplained ,… for example .. in grammar PANINI is said to be highest authority ,… but whatever given in ASHTADHYAYI of PANINI  still falls short of explaining vedic grammar … so more topic is found in CHANDRA  ‘s vyakarana  …

BUT RAGHAVENDRA’s writings when you inspect you shall find that extra light on the subject hitherto unknown to even the originators of the subject which gives immense pleasure to readers and researchers equally …

This phenomenon continues with every topic and subject under earth .. RAGHVEDNRA SWAMY has mastery on it more than the moolpurushas … who are humbled by the lucidity and clairvoyance and content of the writings of SHRI RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY …..

Oh gurusarvabhaouma — SUDHA means nectar [ amrut ] … this amrut has a divine parimala [ scent ,smell ,perfume ] .. this spreads all over the place and makes amrut even more desirable … Similarly NYAYASUDHA is one such nectar in philosphy ,.. oh Raghavendra you have written a beautiful vyakhyana by name PARIMALA … which indeed is divine parimala of this nectar called NYAYASUDHA …

SACHCHANDRIKA means a beautiful extra divine bright light  of  fullmoon  … chandrika is also a grantha of SHRI VYASATEERTHA  it found its special illumination in the form of vilasatprakash – ie PRAKAASH granth written by RAGHAVENDRA teertha a commentary on the former CHANDRIKA …

A Light[ lamp deepa ] especially enlightens the object around it by removing the darkness and people know about the objects clean and clear and it enhances the knowledge of the objects to the viewer … similarly Oh RAGHVENDRA you have written the  grantha namely BHAVA DEEPA to explain teekacharya various TEEKA granthas …. that is indeed a DEEPA which enlightens various concepts and gives complete knowledge  .. Oh RAGHAVENDRA a very good auspicious morning to you [ SUPRABHATAM ]

  • notes …  SHri VEDAVYASA has written BRAMHA SUTRAS to elucidate the meaning of VEDAS …
  • To give its right meaning … MADHVACHARYA has written ANUVYAKHYANA  …
  • JAYATEERTHA acharya has written NYAYASUDHA to further explain the ANUVYAKHYAANA
  • THIS NYAYASUDHA is like SUDHA nectar …just as NECTAR attracts everyone towards it  through its exotic smell …. so also this NYAYASUDHA explains its meaning clearly through PARIMALA grantha of RAGHAVENDRA swamy and and thus attracts the  minds of scholars gyanis towards it .
  • JAYATEERTHA muni [ ARJUN ] has written  TATVAPRAKASHIKA granth to elaborate its meaning ….
  • SHRI VYASARAJA has written a commentary on TATTVAPRAKASHIKA  known as TATPARYACHANDRIKA to simplify the menaings to lesse intelligent beings …
  • This CHANDRIKA grantha is more beautiful than Normal chandrika [ ie bright rays of fullmoon ] thus it is addressed as SACHCHANDRIKA by poet because it has divine rays  that attract one and all towards the MOON namely HARI …
  • This  SACHCHANDRIKA  was temporarily clouded .. so its light had diminished …. The clouds of wrongful misleading commentaries by lesser authors had eclipsed to diminish its bright divine rays …
  • RAGHVENDRA teertha then wrote a grantha named ‘ PRAKAASH’ as a true commentary to this beautiful CHANDRIKA … and true to its name this grantha removed the clouds of diminish [ misleading explanations ] and brought out the brighter light of DIVINE FULL MOON [ ie true clairvoyant menaing of original grantha ] and thus poet says it was a ‘ vilasatprakaash ‘   as it reached all the scholars and just as rays of full moon quench the desires of the onlookers and enhances their joy … this grantha enhanced and quenched the thirsts of philosophers .
  • MADHWACHARYA wrote many granthas to bring out the actual purport of VEDAS as told by VEDAVYASA BHAGAVAAN ..
  • To these many granthas JAYATEERTHA muni has written many many teeka grantha [ special commentaries ] ,.. they are very elaborate and taxing on scholars brain …
  • So RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY has written a single grantha namely BHAVADEEPA as and explanatory notes to all these TEEKAs .. just as small deepa light enlightens many objects … and shows its true nature .. BHAVADEEPA shows many concepts hidden in the various granthas of teekas of ACHRAYA JAYATEERTHA and removes darkness in the minds of pupils of PHILOSOPHY thus the name BHAVA DEEPA is apt to this grantha …

note : In bhagavat { yadnindatvitatubhyam …….. tvadbhakte mayi chaghvaan | tasmatvita me pooyet durntaaaddustaraadghaat ||

this bhagavat shloka says …. Prahlaad asks a boon to NARSIMHA … OH NARSIMHADEVA  .. my father  has hated you all along his life ….. reason me Being your devotee , he also hated me …………. For both these sins there is no prayashchitta … these sins do not wash away by prayashchitta [ they are unpardonable ] just because they are unpardonable  if one ventures to say OKAY i shall exhaust it by suffering its prarabdha … means Okay i shall experience the results of these sins and exhaust it …. i shall bear the pain … even then it is inexhaustible and one can never come out the misery due to this sins … [ hating bramhins vishnu bhakta VISHNU is unpardonable sins ... ones misery never ceases ]

SO such sins which cannot be washed by either anubhava [ experience ] or by prayashchitta ..Please be merciful to pardon and save my Father from eternal HELL and misery ….

This is the boon Prahalaad asked NARSIMHA …. AND LORD NARSIMHA granted him the boon … [ Intha makkalu yellargu Aa NARSIMHANU kodali ]

What could not be achieved in this world … what was never achieved in this world before … Such a feat PRAHALAADA achieved through his BHAKTI …. LORD changed his rules for PRAHALAADA and pardoned HIRANYAKASHIPU just because he was father of PRAHALAAD … this goes on to show oh RAGHAVENDRA .. how much LOVE and affection SRIMAHAVISHNU has on You … what a great grace he always keeps on YOU .. OH RAGHAVENDRA ,….. A very good auspicious morning be to you …. and let all the devotees of yours also seek such miraculous escapes from prarabdha [ unpardonable unavoidable miseries ] by worshipping you …. and Just as LORD has greatest grace on you … LORD NARSIMHA never refuses any of your demands recommendations … kindly keep your graceful palm on me too OH RAGHAVENDRA i am a slave to senses … and commit very heinous sins everyday …. but I know only one mantra … that is ardently worshipping YOu … even this mantra YOU inspire from within my heart sitting in my heart … OH raghavendra ther never can be again any Great SAINT like you .. who fulfills the desires of his disciples and cleanses him from heinous sins and saves him from miseries and All at the same time brings the grace of HARI through recommendations …., Oh RAGHAVENDRA swamy let there be only one  desire in my heart … that I be always in your good books …. I always remember YOU for then not I fear any prarabdha … any sins … any desires unwanted … I fear not the KIngs of this world ../ I fear not the bad days … I fear not the miseries … If i FEAR I fear only loss of sight of your LOTUS feet in my heart … LET there not be moment without your presence in MY HEART ….

Oh RAGHVENDRA you were bon as BALHIKA raja … You were KIng among KINGS of the chandra vamsha .. so you were the CROWN among the Kshatriyas .. With your mere strength of arms you relieved this earth from Rakshasa and evil kshatriya and pleased KRISHNA with this act of lightening in the burden of earth … You were the abode of many countless qualities that a KING should be ordained  with  .in that birth as BALHIKA ….  Oh RAGHAVENDRA SWAMIYE a good auspicious morning be to you !

this is mahabharat tatparya nirnay words …. by ACHARYA MADHVA …. MADHVACHARYA the avatara of VAYU is saying here  that  ” one very dear to NARAYANA’s affection ..hiranyakashipus son known as Prahalaada has taken birth, to please and serve KRISHNA , in the dynasty of MOON chnadravamsha …as a son to PRATEEP … HE had special VAYU AVESHA , due to this sannidhaan He had extreme strength and hailed as most powerful …and since he ruled the country named BALHIKA [ eurasia ] , he came to be known as BALHIKA RAJA ….To reduced the burden of the earth  from demons  KRISHNA took avatara .. as if to aid him in his work he contributed heavily into this work of KRISHNA   and  pleased HIM … ]  these are the words of none other than VAYU himself ..

Prateep raja is father SHANTANU and grandfather of BHEESHMA …. BALHIKA RAJA as elder brother of SHANTANU that means UNCLE TO BHEESHMA …. PRATEEP was married to daughter of BALHIKA  princess … at the time of Marraige then BALHIKA king [ who had no son ] had taken a promise  from PRATEEP that he would give his son to be adopted by BALHIKA  for the future of BALHIKA kingdom … Prateep as  a promise gave his in adoption  to his father in law …. Thus SHANTANU next born became King of HASTINAPUR …

BALHIKA raja was uncle to BHEESHMA and so as a relative and under order of KRISHNA fought for the KAURAV army in MAHABHARATA WAR …. many people think BHEESHMA was the oldest warrior in MAHABHARATA  , but here is his UNCLE BALHIKA was several hundred years older than BHEESHMA  and fighting a war  .. it is said HIS war cry would KILL hundreds of warriors …. his pound of foot on ground would raise dust so dense that soldiers ran away in fear and confusion …. Such was the might of BALHIKA  …. When KRISHNA urges him to fight from the side of KAURAVA …. BALHIKA accepted it as order from ALLMIGHTY and obeyed but with a condition that His death be at the hands of BHEEMASEN the jagadguru ….BHEEMASENA Obliged and in battlefield BALHIKA RAJA WAS KILLED BY BHEEMSENA and just before DEATH BALHIKA DONATED HIS DIVINE CHARIOT TO BHEEMSENA …. for which BHEEMSENA blessed him to have many chariot sevas in furture birth [ rathotsava ] ….  this is a very strange test KRSIHNA PUTS to his devotees .. HE asks the greatest devotee to fight against HIM and HE demands KARNA TO  come over to PANDAVAS Camp   …… devotee obliges come what may truth or sins … right or wrong … YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND OH KRISHNA  thus MADHVACHARYA  SAYS HE PLEASED KRISHNA ………end of Note by chiraan ]

KUHU YOGA says whoever sits on the throne dies of mishaps and strange experiences … Vijaynagar empire ,HAMPI was thriving capital and one of richest empires in INDIAN HISTORY in KALIYUGA …. this was the golden era of SOUTH INDIA … where arts culture and wealth was at peak …. it is said diamonds and pearls and gold coins  were sold on the streets in open market in heaps ….it was a bustling economy ……every citizen of the empire  were adept in 64 arts … the specialists exhibited mastery …. women were extremely beautiful and very colorfully clad .. while men exhibited extraordinary talents ….. it is said in writings of that era as thoigh KING INDRA had himself come down to RULE the empire ….. as streets of KUMBHAKONAM HAMPI MADURAI TANJORE SriRANGAM  defeated AMRAVATI in splendour …… SUCH a bustling empire covering entire central india and south India and far east  upto cambodia …and all parts of south east ASIA  …… falling into KUHU yOGA seemed a fearful proposition to people of KINGDOM and KINg as well [ this was known through astrology  RAJYA  PRASHNAM  goes on to show how people were adept in SAMHITA ] ….. when in such distress   when saviour himself is in danger … and when kingdom at large is in danger…. people became sad [ we must realise …. this is early 16th century medieval period when invasions were rampant an social fabric was tearing apart  a  stable kingdom was a bane to citizens when culture was paramount to society …. so such  a danger brings sadness and a GODSENT help is what people expect   especially when KING himself has lost confidence …

Thi enhnces the prominence of VYASARAYA .. a MADHVA STALWART  .. whom KRSIHNADEVARAY seeks refuge … and like his earlier births …oh  RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY  … HE with his mantrashakti and KRISHNA BHAKTI … sat on the throne of KRSIHNADEVARAYA and warded of evil for not one day two day but TWELVE YEARS …and saw to it that KINGDOM WAS INTACT people were happy and no evils ever entered KINGDOM …. HE warded of the evils of throne [ it is widely believed that  this throne is in mysore and even to this day it gives a cerebral shock to the occupant owing to which subsequent GOVTS [ both foreign and native ] or individuals never ever tried to besiege  it …. ]

During the time VYASARAJA … yatis like VIJAYEENDRA TEERTHA exhibited mastery in 64 arts ….  VYASARAYARU taught him entire vedas and puranas and other arts in just eight days …. so much to say about this great GURU …..

He gave shelter to PURANDARDASARU .. and praised him in his song that HE was one dasa  who worshipped KRISHNA with a live vision ……

EVERYDAY during the reign of VYASA RAJA was eventful  with scholars debating …. sungers singing celestially … people engaged in dharma ….. VYASARAYA worshipped VENKATESHA in TIRUPATI personally … and till date there is VYASARAYA mutt staright oppsite the temple ….

HE gave us VAADIRAJARU who lived ripe till the age of 120 years .and gave us innumerable stotras and vyakhyana ….

HE gave us KANAKADASA  who also lived to ripe age … and met both VYASARAJA and RAGHVENDRA swamy in his lifetime [ both avatara of rayaru ] …

VYASARAYA  gave ashram to VIJAYEENDRA and again took ashrama from hIm as disciple as RAGHAVENDRA teertha …..

ADVAITIS and NON MADHVAS ran away from the kingdom unable to face the logic of VYASARAYA …. people of those days murmured as long as VYASARAYA is there like abhinava VEDVYASA   there is no scope for vipareeta gyana to reign the spiritual world …. He was like a LION to the wolves of  MAYAVADIS …. [ remembering these lines of mine will give all the desired in one stroke ..below shloka is testimony to it ] Vyasaraja lived from 1447 – 1539 AD ..

shrimate raaghavendraaya sarvaabhishTapradaayine | mantraalaynivaasaaya gururaajaay mangaLam ||

Oh Raaghavendra teertha gururaaja [ Just as emperor is the man with  a highest qualities and of highes order in terms of greatness among the men …. so also among the men qualified to be gurus [ spiritual teachers ] Raghvendra swamy is emperor among such men , ie with  highest and greatest place attributed by LORD narsimha ]

Oh guru Raghavendra , you give all the material desires to your devotees sitting in Mantralaya with vishesha sannidhi [ why vishesha sannidhi ?] Rayaru is still alive in Mantralaya … He has been there since 1671 …… in these 340 years many a saints scholars sadhaka … who were of celestial amshas …. aparoksha gyanis …. themselves yet before achieving aparoksha gyana have visited Mantralaya and performed seva and attained their desires ….and knowledge … after they have achieved aparoksha gyana too they have praised RAYARU in their devotional songs …..

Some were devatas born on earth who were lesser in tartamya to RAYARU [ Prahlaad rayaru ] like Ahlaad [ brother of PRAHLAAD ] ie Jagganath Dasaru …. like GANAPATY [ GOPALADASARU ] etc …. Some were highere in tartamya like VIJAYADASARU [ sage BHRIGU ] …… while they have praised rayaru as jagadguru even after attaining aparoksha gyana shows on to say they revered RAYARU because RAYARU has vishesha VAYU sannidhi , and all the devatas reside In RAYARA vrindavana … and praising Rayaru also becomes automatically the praise of LORD Pradyumna present as five fold HAYAGREEVA NARSIMHA KRISHNA RAAMA VEDVYASA  in RAYARU to bless all the normal and aparoksha gyanis their desired on earth alnd that too instantly as KALIYUGA KAAMADHENU ]

hence the word vishesha sannidhi ….. Oh raghavendra let there be auspiciousnness …..

Shree MOOLARAAMA suprabhaatam

seetaapate vidhikaraarchita koormaraajbhanDaarto Nrahareeteerthamuneendralabdha | aanandateerthamunivanshyayateendrapoojya  shreemoolaraama bhavataattava suprabhaatam ||

Oh Moolraama dev  seetapati , Bramha has himseff worshipped you … Then Narahariteertha swamy has obtained you from the stores of gajapati kings of Koorma Kingdom of Orrissa … Madhavacharya and ShriRaghvendra teertha   and all the yatis [ peethadhipatis ] coming in his tradition have worshipped you .. Oh raama let there be Auspiciousness !

note – Moolarama and moolseeta idols were created by BRAMHA .. and BRAMHA himself worshipped it for many years …..Then pleased with the tapasya penace of Vaivasvat Manu son Ikshavaku  .. Bramha gave him the IDOLS …. For generations Ikshvaku and his sons in his lineage worshipped MOOLARAMA so that someday LORD will bless his dynasty with a birth ….So also RAJA DASHARATH worshipped with piety MOOLARAMA and was finally blessed with a son LORD HIMSELF LORD RAAMA …. as thesse idols were primary cause of birth of VISHNU avatara …. RAAMA the idol is known popularly as MOOLARAAMA ….

Later after tretayuga dwapara in KALIYUGA 43rd century these idols went to the KIngdom of orissa whose capital was at Koormakshetra  where gajapatis were ruling …..

in the same year SRIMANMADHVACHARYA took established KRISHNA at UDUPI and sent his disciple NARAHARITEERTHA to orissa to fetch the idols …NAHARITEERTHA sat outside the kingdom on the banks of  a river for penace … few months later the KING of the Koormanagari died …. his son was too tender a age to rule ….. SO ministers of the kingdom decided to decorate an ELEPHANT with Vishnu avahana …. give it a GARLAND and a golden vessel with sacred incanted water… [ matrapoota jala ] … The ELEPHANT was left in the kingdom to roam about freely … the idea was whoever the elephant garlands and then bathes with the water from golden vessel will be appointed as the KING of the KOORMAnagar …

The elephant chose to garland NARHARITEERTHA and did abhisheka with the water from golden  vessel ….. NARHARI TEERTHA ruled justly for 12 years the kingdom justly …. and after the Prince became of eligible restored him to the throne and while leaving the KINGDOM prince offered him the IDOL of MOOLARAMA from the stores as Gurudakshina [ prince had a  dream to that effect  that night ]

Narhari teertha offered the IDOL to MADHVACHARYA and from then on all the yatis in his dynasty [ tradition ] includimng Shree RAGHAVENDRA swamy worshipped MOOLARAMA devaru . EVEN till today SHREE MOOLARAMa is worshipped in SHREERAGHAVENDRA SWAMY mutt by the PONTIFFS …

Oh SHREEMOOLARAAMA deva  let there be auspiciousness …..

Oh hanumaan the messenger of LORD RAAMA , Oh Bheemsen the attendant of LORD KRISHNA , Oh MADHVARAAJ of clean mind and infinite intelleigence , very dear to the LORD VEDVYASA , SUPRABHAATA to you [ Good auspicious morning ]

note : from here onwards 38 shlokas are  RAGHAVENDRA swamy suprabhaath  …. 14 15th 16th August SHree RAGHAVENDRA swamy ARADHANA starts …. its a earnest directive to take part in this samaraadhane at the nearest Raghavendra swamy temple …. contribute to various sevas ,… give for bramhan abhojana …. partcipate in geeta vaadya  nrutya  seva ….. on these three days especially worship Raghavendra swamy in special ways to attain all the desired …..   in the previous posts I have given various stotras  fo various problems … these stotras work when there is only karma relating to the problem alone  … but f curses are operating in the horoscope , then the desired results dont come even after 100 recitals …. if other doshas exists even then these remedies dont seem to work …. when there is prabala prarabdha then too remedies dont work …. and one suffers endlessly …. what to do in such situation ….?  except with head down and accepting the fate one has no option …. One option is to ask for strength [ to HARI ] to face the situation … another option is borrow good fortune from RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY ….. usually one has to return whatever borrowed , but RAGHAVENDRA swamy does not expect things back .. so its for free … condition …. VISHNU BHAKTI … VISHNU SARVOTAMMATVA VAYUJEVOTTAMATVA GYANA ….

But to get this devotion our day should start with peace so we have necessary mindsetup to concentrate on HARI … but with prabala prarabdha day starts with jolts and endlessly draws into whirlpool of sins and misery ….. unless [ mangal vastu darshan occurs in morning , no good descends ]  …. there is no mangal [auspicious ] vastu than auspiciousness personified MOOLARAMA DEVA VAYU DEVA AND SHREE RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY …. hence getting up early in the morning and reciting this suprabhaata will give necessary auspiciousness to begin the day in a good way and get fortunes from SHREE RAGHAVENDRA which will offset our prarabdha … and also as a bonus we get SHRIHARI BHAKTI which will set us free from SANSAARA ….

Oh shankukarna the best among devatas …You have taken birth [ as per the instructions of BRAMHA ] in the lineage of DITI by the name PRAHALAAD ….. this dynasty known to have  qualities  full of countless  HARIDWESHA  … etc …and many many defects …. BUt still none of these , not a single of defects ever manifested in YOU oh PRAHALAADRAYA ….. Instead VISHNU BHAKTI and infinite satvik qualities are seen in PRAHALAADARAYA … with such qualities PRAHALAADRAAYA you are completely clean and pure and auspicious and you make all those who serve you with devotion similarly [ as per capacity ] clean pure and auspicious ….Oh Prahalaadraaya , you have now descended again on earth as GURU SHRIRAGHAVENDRA SWAMY .. suprabhaata to you [ a very good auspicious morning ]

Note- some people may ask how do MADHVAS declare Such and such person is avatara of such and deity … isnt it glorification of self philosophy and self assumed glorification of our pontiffs …

To refute such illogical arguments …… the following lines from NARSIMHA PURANA presents the prooof of PRAHALAAD having descended as RAGAHVENDRATEERTHA …

It is for this Same RAAMA upasana RAYARU has come on the earth from BRAMHALOKA . As Shankukarna he was deity incharge of bringing Tulasi to the RAAMA upasana that BRAMHA was doing in BRAMHALOKA ,. Everyday as BRAMHA was worshipping MOOLARAMA  VIGRAHA , Shankukarna secretly nurtured the desire to do the archana of SRIMOOLARAAMA . One day As SHRIRAAMACHANDRA present in SHANKUKARNA inspired him to delay the supply of TULASI to Bramha . BRAMHA [ though a sampoorn saatvika and adhipati of MAHATTATVA does not have an iota of tamas in him to have dosha like anger ] yet showed anger on SHANKUKARNA and cursed him to be born on earth firstly as demon and later as human . The idea behind the curse was let SHANKUKARNA fulfill his desire of worshipping the RAAMA vigraha on the earth .This is known as ANUGRAHA SHAAPA !

Shankukarna was born as Prahalada . and then as SHRI RAGHAVENDRA SWAMY ,

Bramha gave the MOOLARAMA vigraha to MANUputra KING IKSHVAKU and then it remained with SURYA VANSHI KINGS including LORD RAAMA whereby it was worshipped by BHARAT SHATRUGHNA VIBHEESHANA and HANUMAN , from there it came to BHEEMSENA during DWAPARA , from there it remained with GAJAPATY kings in orissa ,  FROM ORISSA NARHARITEERTHA [ disciple of MADHVACHARYA ] who ruled KALINGA for 12 years [ as a result of RAAMAUPASANA as stated above ] brought it and gave it MOOLSANSTHANA of MADHVACHARYA . as the parmapara descended , GURUSARVABHOUMA RAGHAVENDRA teertha worshipped this MOOLARAAMA VIGRAHA fulfilling his long cherished desire .

MOOLRAAMA is still being worshipped in MANTRALAYAM by the saints of this Great PARAMAPARA of which we are all proud to be part of !

Ninth lord exalted in the kendra aspected by jupiter , man acquires everything in his life by luck and grace of the Guru.

Once there was a simple ,poor,average bramhin .[ Not very brilliant or charismatic] . But he had immense faith and devotion in the Shri Raghavendra swamiji . He was serving swamiji with single minded reverence. After many years of worship and service , he decided to visit his native place and his parents. To take the leave of the Guru he waited patiently at the gates of the abode of HIs Holiness Shri Raghavendra swamiji.Swamiji had just finished his daily chores was out from the toilet and was washing the hands with the soil in the garden .

The disciple wished the guru and insisted on giving him some momento to carry home from the Guruji. Guru picked up the mrittika[soil] from the earth and gave him . He happily [ and piously] tied it into his angavastra[ mufler cloth] and set out for the village. All the while thoughts crisscrossed his mind , that he had served the teacher for so long , Swamiji was known to change people’s life , but nothing actually did happen in his case. Perhaps [he thought to himself ] I was not very bright student and thus did not deserve any special attention . Or may be I had not impressed him by my service. Well just accepting the fate , the lad set out towards the goal.

Night fell on ; thus he had to take shelter in the nearby village . It so happened he slept in the verandah of a noted rich noble family of the village . Now this family had history of miscarriages and birth of dead child from many years. There was no male issues to the lady of the house except for a grown up daughter . For past ten years every child born was dying under mysterious conditions.Today also the lady was about to give the birth.

IN the midnight a huge Rakshas appeared at the door of the Noble man . But this day Rakshasa was not able to enter the house as a fire was emanating from the doorstep . It so happened that our hero [disciple] was sleeping with the angavastra [ the one which contained the soil from the Swamiji] under his head near the doorstep in the verandah. Rakshasa woke him up , somehow the lad was not afraid a bit at the sight of a gigantic huge demon. Instead sleepily he rebooked him , Rakshas said , his prey was about to take birth and he was unable to enter the house . What was it he was carrying in the mufler . Feeling insecure the disciple hid his mufler and shyed away from the demon . Not to part with it  as it was a momento of the Swamiji. A tussle arose between the two , angered disciple hit the demon with the mufler. Demon died on the spot.

Day broke out and people were surprised to see the huge demon dead at the doorstep of the noblemen and inside lady had delivered a baby boy ,ha;e and healthy. Now understanding the mystery behind their misfortune , they thanked the bramhin .

Thinking the disciple to be very blessed personality and also being indebted to him , the noble chief offered his daughter to him and also his half wealth. He called upon his parents and with a great pomp and show married the couples off gifting them all the amenities of house utensils , ornaments , cloth,chieftainship of village as livelihood and many more gifts. The couple and family lived happily by the grace of SHri Raghavendra swamiji. So much for a average man’s selfless service.

Arishta Bhanga-[Avoidance of unfortunate Yoga]

There are many arishta yogas in Astrology . These bring misfortunes or even death to the native and his prospects.But a single strong benefic in the kendra destroys all the evils .If malefic causing arishta yoga is hemmed between the benefics then the maleficence will cease and only benefic results will flow.

Once Shri Raghvaendra Swamy was on a pilgrimage towards south India . On his way he stooped along with his entourage at a village . A village is headed by the Desai . Desai accorded a welcome to the entire Swami’s disciple at his house and requested for the MoolRama ‘s pooja to be held in his house that day. The whole village and nearby people had gathered in his house.

[ All the Swamiji's carry some Idol of divine presence with them given their respective gurus . They must perform daily pooja in a detailed manner as prescribed to Sanyasi's to this idol and saligrama etc. The lapse in this routine causes the Sanyasi to lose his post and authority . Shri Raghavendra Swamy had Shri MoolRama idol with him . This Idol was handed down from Bramha to Sanatkumar to Durvasa and others on to the earth. Even Lord Shri Rama  prayed this Idol himself . Thus Shri MOOLRAMAidol and its pooja is held in high esteem even to this date]

Desai arranged for the prasad [ grand lunch ] to all the participants in his house . The whole atmosphere got festive as Shri Raghavendra swamiji performed Pooja to Lord Rama . The atmosphere resembled that of Bramha’s abode resplendent with all the devatas as the pooja commenced [ primarily because Devatas themselves come everyday to witness this grand pooja].

Delicious sweets were being prepared in the large kitchen . A vessel full of KHEER was also prepared. Desai had a son of eight years age. He merrily went into kitchen at the smell of sweets . Everyone was busy in the prayer hall attending to guests and witnessing pooja. Boy accidentally slipped into the vessel and died. The parents having noticed this went into untold grief . But laying aside the grief and their son in another room , they hid their emotions and also the news of their son’s death , lest it would put an end to the celebration in the house and guests would return without partaking food.

Thus with  a heavy heart they ordered the neighbour to carry on with the serving of food to the guests and completion of the ritual. Shri Raghavendra swamiji enquired about the hosts Desai and his family and their well being. But the relatives refused to divulge the details. Swamiji ordered to bring the Family before him. The couple appeared with heavy heart . Swamiji also ordered their son to be brought out in the open .

The whole atmosphere was grief ridden as the body of the infant was brought before the Swamiji.  Shri Raghavedra swamiji sprinkled the holy teertha of shri Moolrama on the body of the boy and chanted the mantra . The boy’s life was restored. The boy got up as usual and went to his mother playfully unaware of the details. The entire family was moved to tears with gratitude towards the great saint . EVEryone had a hearty meal all the while wondering the greatness of the MoolRama teertha and Swamiji’s mantra shakti and his merciful act .

Aapadi mouli paryatam gurunam akrutim smaret! ten vignaha pranashyanti sidhyanti cha manorathaha!!
