Hitherto Unknown Secrets !

Gayatri has been alluded as prayashchitta for many a sins- We are talking about BRAMHA Gayatri only not Sandhya.
There is a pramana that because it imparts rakshana [safety] from doshas and sins thus it is called as Gayatri, one who sings it will be saved from daana 
sweekara dosha, dushta anna bhojana dosha, bramha hatya patak, pashu hinsa, upapataka shuddhi. Gyanis strongly recommend Gayatri.
In agni purana Mahapatak prayashchitta homa is being narrated. It is mentioned thereby that 1 LAKH japas for Bramha hatya, surapaana, and suvarnasteya.
These get parihaar by the japa of Gayatri. Pitru matru hatya more than lakh japa, 100 for papa parihaar, 1000 for upapatak parihaara.
Similarly, homa of Gayatri gives phala of pryashchita. Til homa for sarva papa prayashchitta, Ashwath samit for graha peedha parihaar. Homa with honey and salt brings back wife who has gone to her parents’ home in anger. Homa with mango leaves gives good health, homa with laza (haralu in kannada and podval in tulu) gives beautiful girl as wife.

But do homa or japa, which are jada actually give phala?
No mantra japa homa do not give phala but it’s the MANTRA PRATIPADYA BHAGAVAN ANUGRAHA that gives the PHALA.
In Brahma Sutra lord’s Narsimha is only Duritapariharak, so one must do
To do NARSIMHA ANUSANDHAN in GAYATRI: Suryanarayan atyant 
abhinna Narsimha guna amhima anusandhan from gayatri is as follows:
Gayatri has ten shabda= TAT : in narayan varma “vidikshu diskhurdhwam” shloka tells about ten directions and multidimensional up-down everywhere omnipotent Lord staying thus removes the fears of His devotees by His Garjan [loud roar] and is established all-round safety providing Karmas everywhere such durita nivarak NARSIMHA!

SAVITUH: By being inside the papapariharak karmas like daana japa homa, He manifests [srushti] the papa pariharak phala. He himself manifested through a pillar [so such feat should not be difficult for him].
VARENYAM: He is sung [bhajaniya] by the devotees for their duritanivaran. He
appeared in adhbut rupa and upheld that He is sarvottama and established His
supremacy that he alone is ocean of gnana sukha shakti (etc.) auspicious
BHARGA: Narsimha burns all the heaps of sins done by a devotee and relives him, and then kills all the dushta shaktis [sin abhimani devaas and rakshas who trouble devotees] and while he does rakshan and poshana of the devotees and gets some work done by them to create a nimitta for such dahan, in the course He removes AGNYANA.
DEVASYA: Narsimha is praised by greats like Prahalaad [dev stutau] and then while doing duritaparhaar He also removes dukha klesha that arises during the presence of durita and brings a smile on the faces of the devotees hence He is devasya [deva means one who brings moda].

DHIMAHI: Narsimha Deva is present in Rudra devaru, manoniyamak Rudra
through him He (Narsimha) inspires the antahkarana to do dhyana of Narsimha and he also makes himself seen in such dhyaana. To get rid of brahma-hatya Devendra also did Narsimha dhyana.
DHIYO YO NAH PRACHODAYAAT: Those devotees who have done pataka etc., He inspires them to do paschattapa and then compels them to do Sadhana prayaschitta that “sadbuddhi” is given by Narsimha only just as He inspired Prahalaad not to do sakaam bhakti and remain nishkama.

Just as how we do upasana we get such phala by that pramaana, by this
anusandhan in Gayatri japa we get papa parihaara and its phal quickly by japa homa daana through Narsimha rupa dhyana anusandhan.
The most important aspect of thsi post is without anusandhana no phala can come! So anusandhan is important.

Narsimhavapu : One who has body of Nar and Simha. One who has body which can destroy the sins of nara 

Paapanashana: The rupa which does durita nivarana and papa parihaar 
Bhayakrut Bhaya Nashana: One who gives fear in the minds of enemies of His devotees and removes the fears of devotees

Jitmanyu: Jitkrodha: Even though Narsimha was looking very angry at
Hiranyakashyapa, this was not rajas or rajoguna vikaara, but it was another form of kshama guna only this was completely under his control
Surariha: One who killed the enemy of devatas Hirankashyap 
Vikarta Vidrana: One who tore the chest of Hirankashyap 
Sragvi: One who adorned Himself with the intestines of Hirankashyapa as a garland

Uattrano Dushkritiha: One who avoids mishaps to devotees and uplifts them
even though they do evil acts He removes their sins and cleanses them and saves them from troubles
Paryavasthitha: Narsimha deva is everywhere in all directions, up below side in all surroundings and by His loud roar removes our fears

Antaka: One who destroys everyone during pralaya 
Vikramah Vikrami – During pralaya Narsimha tears apart linga deha of all jeevas and dances, his steps are very intense and special
Rudra Manohara: One who looks very ferocious. One who does sanhaar of all by being in Rudra. Being bhayankara and called as Rudra and is sanhaar karak for Shiva also and residing in him, He is the Makaar in the syllable OM.

Ravan Sanatkumar Samvaad !

Once Ravan with folded hands and extreme devotion and politeness asked in solitude  Son of BRAMHA ,SAGE SANATKUMAR  – “OH Sage ! who is supreme  most among devatas ? Who is the one , taking the shelter of whom devtas always win over their enemies in war ? Whom do the dwijas worship always  ? Whom do the Yogis meditate UPON ? Oh benevolent one ! kindly answer my questions as you know everything ! .”

Sanatkumar through his divine sight[ yogadruk ] , found out the real intention of RAVANA behind these questions and then said -” Oh son RAVAN ! Listen as I give answer to your questions . One who regulates this UNiverse and sustains it always , one who does not have death and birth , one who is worshipped by both devtas and asuras That imperishable supreme being is HARI NARAYANA .. He is the one from whose navel was born BRAMHA He is the creator of this animate and inanimate world  , taking shelter of HIM al the devatas always win over their enemies in war . Yogis meditate on NARAYANA and dwijas engage in his japa …”

Having listened to Mahrshi’s words , RAVANA again said thus ” Daitya danav always get killed by VISHNU , what happens to these daityas where do they go and what do they achieve ?”

Sanatkumar rishi continues -” those who are killed by other Devatas , they go to the best of  Swarga heaven and after sometime they fall down to earth and according to their previous life’s good and bad deeds they attain births and deaths continuously . BUT those who die in the hands of VISHNU get their ultimate gati as ordained by HARI ”

RAVAN with a happy disposition in mind thought for a moment and decided so I shall fight with HARI then . GUAGING the mind of RAVANA , Sanatkumar rishi proclaimed ” oh RAVAN your wish will be fulfilled ! you wait for some more time and enjoy ”

HAving said so SAGE continued ” HEy RAVAN ! LORD VISHNU exists everywere , he is omnipotent , he is flowing as river in rivers , he is standing as dense forest among forests .. he is manifested everywhere in all shapes and sizes ..HE is in OMkara , truth , savitri , prithvi , and the He is in SHESHA the one wo is hodling this entire universe ” HE is as devatas among devatas , He is the kAALA , he is the MOON and SUN as present in them , He causes SUNRISE SUNSET day night , HE is in VAYU , he is in fire agni , HE is in INDRA , He is in YAMA , he is parjana , vasus , … Bramha Rudra and all devatas owe to their existence to HIM ,, He causes lighting hesports in all this creation ,and also protects it ..He is present everywhere in all creation and sustains it .. He is  of bluish in color and that too of hue that of lightning  and  wears a  peetambar , Like a golden [ of jambunad fame ] jewellery , MAHALAKSHMI is adorning his chest and she is embracing looking at him with awe …

LORD VISHNU  cannot be seen by any daitya danav devata or nag etc ..ONLY those whom he graces [ yasya prasaadam kurute sa chainam drashtum arhati ] ,those with whom he is pleased only those can see him by his grace alone ..

YAGNYA tapasya , daan or ADHYAYAN  or any other means does not qualify to be eligible to see HIM ..Only his devotees who with single mind  ever engage in his thoughts through unmixed VEDANTA [ unmixed with dirt of doubts ] , whose vision is totally pure and cleansed [ which has become malaheena -amala drushti  ] with vedanta vichaara Only they can see LORD NARAYANA ! ”

SAge continues .. -‘RAVAN ! now if you want to have his vision easily without any such difficult means , Then in TRETAYUGA , for the welfare of devatas and humans , LORD is taking avatara in IKSHVAKU  lineage as the best of EMPERORS , as the SOn of DASAHRATH b name RAAMa !!!! He will leave for forest along with his brother and wife to uPHOLD the words of his Father . He will wander in DANDAKARANYA along with his wife SEETA who is [maya herself ] …I have told all these to you in details RAVAN ,now worship LORDRAAM along with his consort with continuous devotion[” bhajasva bhaktibhaven sada RAAMAm SHRIYA yutam “ ] ”

thats the advice SANATKUMAR gives to RAVAN to fulfil his desire of having VISion of LORD RAM in his heart

AGASTYA MUNI says to LORD RAAM ” thus having listened to SAge sanatkumar oh LORD RAM ! Ravan  went into introspection and contemplated thus , I shall make opposition with allthe devatas in the universe and LORD RAM will then oppose me. Ravan having decided so ,became very happy at the possibility of fulfilling his wish

RAVAN thus went on war spree so that he would get a chance to oppose SHRI RAM and then to get KILLED by RAAM , the wise RAVAN  abducted  JAGANMATA devi JANAKI ”

One who listens to this katha , or reads it or gives a discourse to others who are interested , he shall attain longevity , freedom from diseases , health and infinite prosperity happiness , he will gain his wishes and make extreme profits and his wealth will never decrease but  will keep  ever increasing


Shri Krishna Stutih !

ॐ॥ यदि दिशसि नयनपटुताम तर्हि भवच्चरणकमलसेवायै । आयास्यामि दयालो कृष्ण न चेत्पूजयामि कथमन्धः ॥

Note : this shloka was composed by Sri VAadiraj pujyacharan swamiji to aid a blind Bhakta to have vision . VAADIRAJARu asked him to recite this daily 100 times and the person got the vision . This shloka gives relief from all the trouble of eyes .

SOmetime when Shree Vrundavanacharya was ruling , one of the bhaktas came to see SHREE KRISHNA and was unable to see the pratima of the LORD KRISHNA … Vrundavanaacharya  gave him this very shloka , after 1000 recitals LORD krishna could be seen by the Bhakta .

So this excellent of shlokas can be recited by all those who have eye troubles , fear of loss of vision , or those aspiring regaining of vision , partial vision or those undergoing operation of eyes can recite these shlokas …

Those desirous of having DARSHAN OF LORD in the heart can also recite this Shloka through purashcharana .

then one must stand up and give suryarghya  [ this kills mandeha rakhshasas ]

remember suryantargta NARAYANA and then to relieve oneself of the dosha of killing rakshashas one has to do pradakshina and achamana

then one must give devata tarpana

one must do papaprushvsarjana … tatvanayasa matrukanyasa anganyasa karanyasa dhyana

  1. listening to vedas from guru
  2. introspecting  meaning  of the topics learnt
  3. practising the same again and again
  4. japa of veda mantras
  5. teaching vedas to students

these five form vedabhyasa  one must remember 12 types of gururs before and after vedabhyasa . one mst specially study gruhyasutras of ones traditions

After vedabhyasa one must get up wear a different set of white clothes .. wash the hands take a wooden bowl and move towards the  pushpavana ..

Standing before the pushpavana one must with attention and folded hands worship VANADEVATA ..

” namaste kusumadhare namaste kamaladhare pushpaaNi vishNupoojaarthamaaharishye tavagnyaya ”

ten one must proceed into the forest … collect

  • karveer ]
  • jaaji
  • samapangi
  • vangula
  • vakula
  • mandaar
  • paarijaat
  • paatali
  • ashok

one must not take flowers that are fallen , which are nearer to the house , back coloured flowers ,dry flowers , torn flowers , flowers brought in a tied cloth ,flowers touched by evil people ,flowers already smelt by people , used flowers ,flowers which have been touched by feet ,scentless flower , fully aged blossomed  flowers , unblossomed flowers , flowers brought by women and sudras should not used for the LORD ..

tulasi utpala jaji ketaki karveer maalati maadhvi mallika kamal these are very apt for praying VISHNU .

In padamasamhita HARI says  flowers from

  1. NANDANvana
  2. udyaanvana
  3. forest
  4. own house
  5. market
  6. that which comes without asking

these six types can be collected each being greater than other descending it in that order ..

Dharmaraaj Yudhishthir asks which flowers are best suited for your worship oh Madhusudan kindly enlighten … which are dear to you ? which are not suited what are their results ?

LORD says

Those that are not of white colour and those that have no fragrance , that have not blossomed or have torn or have dried by offering it to ALLMIGHTY one gets extreme fear of sins and miseries … [ unknown fears and dreams of doing sins ]

Those who offer flowers eaten by worms birds or that have fallen all by themselves from a tree or girikarnika  flowers all such offerings destroys the dynasty of the person , he goes without offspring ..


kalpavriksha , paarijaata , harichandana santaanvruksha , madaaravruksha these five flowers and saugandhika the sixth and seventh the palaash pushpa give thousand times more results than the ordinary flowers and each of the flower mentioned gives thousand times more than the later … Normally one should not offer flowers already offered … but these seven flowers can be offered again aand again by washing them next day ..

In the early morning offering two kamal three utpala white flowers .. malati in morning karveer in afternoon jaati pushpa in evening bakula in pradosha mallika during madhyaratri and kamal early morning Nandika pushpa at arunodaya … daytime flowers that bllom in day and night times offer flowers that bloom in night .. white flowers in  morning red flowers in afternoon and black flowers during night ..

Padma pushpa shuld be used during mahotsavas … NIVAAR NEEP TAMAAL DAVAN flowers can be used even if they are old and worn out …

AMONG all flowers utpala gives thousand times more phala .. Padma is greater by 1000 than utpala ..kamal of 100petals is better than padma … shreshta is the 1000petaled lotus … PUNDARIK lotus is greater than 1000petalled one …

a 1000pundarik does not equal a TULASI dala ..BAKAPUSHPA is more holier and most HOLIER is the flower made of GOLD ..

There is no flower more dearer than a gold flower tome says KRISHNA .. if one does not afford gold flower than he must worship with tulasi .. if one does not get TULASI dala than he must worship with tulasi branch .. if not branch than a tulasi twig … even if one does not get a tulasi twig then one must use the mrittika at the roots of tulasi to worship KRISHNA ..

Just bramhins are shreshta among the jaatis .. Ganga is shrestha among the rivers KRISHNA is shrestha among dieties so also Malati is shrestha among the flowers .. one can alwasy worship LOrd with malati .. one can offer same flowers again and again of MALATi it does not become nirmalya .. one gets relieved from diseases miseries old age and finally gets moksha by offering malati pushpa ..sugandhmaya psuhpa gives one place in vaikuntha …

ANKURA that can be used for worship of VISHNU are

  • doorva
  • raktanishpavam
  • moong sprouts
  • indravalli
  • gulamashak


  • Tulasi
  • amala
  • gandhaparna
  • vishnukranta
  • bilva
  • ashvattha
  • tamaala
  • maruga
  • daman
  • khadir
  • sahadevi
  • shami
  • bramhapalash
  • chuutparna [ mango]
  • bakaa
  • padma
  • karpoormallikalata
  • bhringarak

the above gives hari sannidhi

Tulasi should not be plucked on sankranti poornima amavasya dwadashi night times evening times grahan .. these times will give hell

Those who pluck tulasi during arunoday will never see yamaloka .. but plucking on other days which is prohibite gives bramhahatya dosha

one must not luck tulasi after noon .. neither one must pluck without taking bath .. worship with such tulasi is waste ..does not eyild result … panchagavya prokshan shoudl be done in case tulasi is plucked without bath ,..

METHOD to pluck tulasi

  • must take bath
  • do achamana
  • take bowl full fo water
  • pour it in the tulasi roots of the plants
  • do namaskaar
  • do prarthana
  • then pluck tulasi

MANTRA for pouring water to TULASI

“shriyah priye shriyavase nityam shridharvallabhe | bhaktya dattam mayaaarghyam hi tulasi pratigruhyataam ||”

NAmaskaar mantra

” yaa drushta nikhilaghsanghshamini sprushta vapuhpaavani rogaaNaamabhivandita nirasani siktaantakatraasini | pratyasattividhaayini bhagvatah krishnasya samropita nyastaa tachharaNe vimuktiphalada tasmayi tulasyai namaha || ”

manahprasaadjanani sukhsaubhagyavardhini | aadhim vyaadhim ch har me tulasi tvam namamyaham ||


” shriyam dehi yasho dehi keertimayustatha sukham | balam pushTim tatha dharmam tulasi tvam prayachcha me ||

Tulasi kshamayachana

Oh tulasi ! NARAYANA  alone is capable of giving MOKSHA .. you are very dear to him .. I am plucking your leaves to please SRIHARI kindly forgive me

tulais should not be plucked with nails .. but only with fingers .. after plucking tulasi one must head straight to house and pooja room because just as claf goes behind the cow wherever it goes .. LORD goes behind the one who plucks a tulasi wherever he goes ..

Pooja done with such tulasi plcuked in above manner gives 1 lakh times more phala ..

krishna tulasi when offered to LORD takes one to HARI sannidhana after death .

People do so many sins some before others some in secrecy .. some sins acnnpot be told in public all such sins gets destroyed by offering tulasi dala to LORD srikrsihna ..

Those who do not offer tulasi to LORD NARAYANA their pilgrimage vrata niyamas do not bring any result , it is of no consequence thus one must with efforts offer tulasi to SRIMANNARAYANA ..

In kaliyuga there cannot be greater archana to HARI pratima than offering Tulasi .. such people are noble and saintly .. as their all sins do not touch them and they ascend heavens …. especially if tulasi leaves that fall off plant all b y itself and when offered to LORD his birth is of great significance in kaliyuga …such an offering during arunodaya gives MOKSHA .. such a  tulasi  collected during arunodaya mixed flower and offered to LOrd’s feet gives punya equivalent to 12 lakhs flowers … One golden flower offered to LORD gives punya of 1 crore flowers offered to the LORD .. the same punya is gathered by one who offeres TULASI DALA ..[ a dala is different than leaf  a dala is formed by three leaves at the apex of a branch of tulasi amidst the tulasi seed].

ANY pooja done without Tulasi goes without fetching any phala ..

one must not wash tulais leaves before offering .. but tulasi once offered can be washed again and again offered to the lord ..

Tulasi destroys all diseases .. tulasi is very dear to HARI at all times and at all places … it is holier than all rivers as all have their blessings in tulasi ..

offering tulasi daily during kartika masa is equivalent to giving daana of 100 kapila cows per tulasi leaf ….there is no lord greater than HARI . there is no item like food which can give greater satisafction there is no guru greater than FATHER . there is no daan greater than godaana and there is no leaf more holier than TULASI ..

A tulasi offering brings so much preeti of LORD that which cannot be got from yagnyas homas daana .. ashtanga yoga or samadhi ..

A planting of tulasi is equivalent to planting 1000 mango trees , 100 hippali trees .. it gives phala of 10 lakh yagnyas ..and he is eligible to live in devaloka as ong as he wishes .. all the desired are fulfilled by tulasi .. its smarana and stuti ..

Lord has given a boon to tulasi that whoever eats tulasi in his mouths at the time of death gets sayujya and HARI preeti increases towards him everafter .. Just as I am always present in NAIMISHARANYA  in suryamandala in..upanishat and hearts of yogi .. I will be ever present in the roots of tulasi plant ..

those who tell/listen to this tulasi mahima will attain HARI PREETI .. who annoint the mrittika of tulasi will get the phala of 10 ashwamedha yaaga ..those who wear it at bath will get 100 ashwamedha phala ,eating tualsi dala will give 100 chandrayana vrata phala …

Hey tulasidevi tulasiplant has risen from your body ..kindly give me mind to worship LORD ..in klaiyuga everyones mind is polluted and filled with defects with the touch of your leaves kindly give us purity and relief from defects … in the past during samudramanthan Lord’s rolling tears in happiness gave birth to  your plant …LORD out of affection has kept you on his head ..from there you have spread all over the LORD’s different limbs ..thus you derived your purity and sanctity and holiness . I bow beforee thee .. the water droplest falling off your leaves if sprinkled onto our head gives the punya as that of ganga snana and tthat of 100 godana …















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


MangalaGauri Vrata – katha evam Vidhi !

Once , the daughter of Drupad Draupadidevi , having completed her daily chores , seated in a relaxed mood ..asked All knowing SUTA puranik [ after bowing to him religiously ] , ” Oh holy one , I have known many vratas and niyamas and poojas fom you previously …. Now I wish to know the most auspicious among vratas namely MANGALGAURI vrata .. kindly enlighten me about the same !

Suta puranik explains Draupadi ,” Oh daughter of Drupada listen ! The vrata which you intend to know is the one which delivers highest merits in this world ….This vrata increases the longevity of the husband ,gives enormous fame ! I shall narrate it specially for you !

Once upon a time  , in the beautiful famous city of KUNDANIPUR , there lived a very rich  ,extremely devoted to Bramhins and very pious and famous trader  by name DHARMADUTTA . He was living very happily with his equally pious wife . One day a Bhikshu Sanyasi wearing orange robes rudraksha and vibhuti and holding kamandalu and kundala passed by his house . His wife rushed to give him bhiksha , but he went away without noticing her . Second day again he went past deliberately avoiding her bhiksha ….. This happened everyday , the sanyasi just refused to accept bhiksha from her … Sad at these events , She complained to her husband …. Her husband said ” not to worry about it so much … just see to it tommorrow , you carry a bowlfull of gems and gold coins , and put it in his bag ….

Next day waiting for sanyasi with a bowl full  of gold coins .. as soon as sanyasi came she just turned the bowl into his bag even before he could take notice of it ….. Angry at her conduct .. sanyasi cursed her to be without children …then pained at curse , crying profusely she ran after sanyasi and fell at his feet to redeem her from curse , or give some remedies to absolve her off her misconduct …. so that she could beget a child ”

Sanyasi took pity on her and advised , ” oh best among the women , repeat before your husband what I say to thee now , Ask you husband to wear black dress and ride a black horse  towards the forest … wherever the horse stops , get down and dig the soil there . He will find a temple full of nine types of jewels .. the deity there is MANGALGAURI .. If your husband worships her with devotion and faith ,  both of you would get relieved from the curse ..and saying thus SANYASI disappeared …

She narrated the same to her husband , pained at the event ,,. next day wearing a black dress and riding black horse , Dharmadutta proceeded towards the forest , the horse took him deep into forest …. Dharmadutta did not partake food or water riding on the horse …. deeply devoted to DEVI … for next 21 days horse went on deeper into the forest …..after 21 days it stopped .. Dharmadutta dug the soil around carefully and as he dug a temple came out of excavation fully decorated with all types of jewels …. MANGALGAURI devi was the deity in the temple…. other deities were in the periphery …. the temple was fully laden with trees and sculptures ….

Dharmadutta thanking sanyasi in the mind ,went further into forest looking for many flowers , barks and leaves to perform pooja of devi in the temple …. BHAVANI impressed and pleased with his devotion ….appeared before him … and asked him ‘Oh trader let me know what type of wealth you wish I shall grant you ”

Dharmadutta said ” Oh devi , By your grace I have all the wealth required to live my life ….. I yearn for a child .. please grant me …. ” DEVI said ” Oh arya ! you do not have yoga for child …. But still I give you one boon , so choose what you want among the options I Give  ……

  1. a beautiful daughter who would become widow soon after marriage or
  2. short lived handsome boy
  3. longlived blind son

Dharmadutta said Oh devi give me a short lived handsome son …. so that I can be relieved of my pitru runa ….

PARVATI devi granted and said “behold  the tree above the ganpaty temple , the tree has a fruit … take it and give it to your wife she will bear a child ”

Happy the devi’s words , trader climbed the temple of GANAPATY and plucked many fruits from the tree , as he got down to his utter surprise , he would have only one fruit in his hand … so he again climbed and collected many fruits , but again as he descended , only one fruit would remain in his hand … this way he climbed 16 times , but failed to carry many fruits except one …. Ganapaty angry at his conduct . cursed him , since you have climbed on me 16 times …. your son will die at the age of 16 by a snake bite ….

Heavily pained by the curse accepting it as fate … dharmadutta went back to his house …. He gave the fruit to his wife … who after eating it conceived the following night through her husband …..After nine months on  a good muhurta , a very beautiful male child was born …The couple were overjoyed and named the child as “SHIVA” . SHIVA born as he was with the grace of DEVI was growing like a moon in the bright half ….About eight years of age , HE was given UPANAYANA …and his schooling began ,… he was bright and picked up the vidya in two years … at ten His mother insisted that He be married .. Dharmadutta said let him go to KASHI and finish kashiyatra and then we shall get him married … So brotherin law of DHARMADUTTA was designated to take SHIVA along with him to KAshi …

So shiva set out on pilgrimage to KASHI along with his mama …on the way they visited many places of PILGRIMAGE ….and along the way came to a very large famous city of ‘PRATHISHTHA NAGAR ” THe city had a very large garden , so SHIVA and his uncle took rest in the beautiful garden … there were some beautiful damsels playing in the garden …. the most beautiful among them was ‘ SUSHEELA ”   and all the girls were unmarried …. as they were playing , owing to some misunderstanding a verbal fight broke  out between the girls … the other girls started abusing each other with dirty inauspicious words like ‘ vidhwa [ widowed ] , veshyaa ,ganika etc …. SUSHEELA said ” freinds . you are mistakenly , abusing me without reason . i dont understand why ? But these will not affect me because my mother is always engaged in  MANGALAGAURI VRATA  , By the grace of goddess [due to vrata ] I shall always be sumangali till death ….. You know wherever the lamps are lit [ diya ] for mangalgauri vrata , the people dwelling there will never face inauspiciousness ….

As SHE WAS saying these words …. Uncle of SHIva observed this and determined , this girl will be befitting bride for SHIVA ….. so he followed her  to find her whereabouts and talk to her parents …. So he took shiva and stayed in the temple just near the SUSHEELAs house .. here Susheela ‘s father  named Hari was also worried about her marraige and so also his wife ,and wife incindentally spotted a very handsome boy in the temple and urged her husband to talk about their daughter … so HAri went to Shiva’s uncle and proposed the marraige of Shiva and SUsheela ..,Uncle agreed and both were married ….religiously on a fixed date and hari chose to keep the son in law in his house for some days … and did not permit him to go for several years .. Susheela was worshipping MANGALGAURI vrata piously , one day when Shiva and Susheela were sleeping ,,,, Susheela dreamt of GAURI in her dreams instructing her ,,” Oh SUSHEELA get up ,  behold a snake is coming to bite your husband .. place a milk bowl before it and an earthen pot …  snake will drink milk and get into the earthen pot , then you remove your blouse and tie over the pot to seal it …..

Susheela was terrified as her dream broke … she got up and was surprised as a snake crawled towards SHIVA , she immediately put a bowl of milk before it and with courage moved an earthern pot before it … snake drank the milk and went into the pot … , she immediately removed her blouse and tied the pot and sealed it …. and slept peacefully … after some time . SHiva woke her up and said he was feeling hungry …. so she gave him laddos kept as prasaad for the MAA gauri …and he ate them and drank water … just as Susheela was asleep . Shiva and his uncle [ by the inspiration MAA Gauri ] decided to continue their yatra to KASHi as instructed by his Father … and decided to leave without informing them ,…so SHIVA kept the wedding ring in a secret place …. and went away ..

Hari the father in law was highly devoted to his family deity Kuldevata EESHWARA .. so RUDRA took the form of SHIVA and stayed in his house to avoid embarrassment to the family as son in law disappeared ,,..Susheela wanted to complete the vrata next day and gave vayandana to her mother … Mother found  a very precious necklace in the dana box … Mother was extremely happy nd thought her daughter was very happy with her husband .. but she gave the necklace back to the daughter and enquired about such a precious gift , how did son in law accept to donate it to in laws …..

Looking at the gift , Susheela immediately sensed , that Shiva in her house was not her husband ….. She told everything that happened previous night to her parents … here the LORD ISHWARA as SHIVA disappeared … he had come only to complete the vrata for SUSHEELA …

Hari then pained at sudden disappearance of the Son in law … started giving  annadana  to every new visitor of the city [from the hands of SUSHEELA ]… this was going on and on ,, thinking with this he would get his son in law back … [ there is no punya equivalent to annadana , it is perfect remedy for all miseries ]

Here SHIVA along with his uncle visited KASHI and after the darshan of VISHWESWARA , they went to HARIDWAR and took the holy dip in holy ganges .. In Haridwar Shiva gave many dana to able brahmins ,,.and all the meritorious bramhins [ by the inspiration of MANGALGAURI devi ] gave him aasheervada of deerghayush ….

On the way back … suddenly SHIVA collapsed with a loud cry as ‘HA’ ,.. Immediately Uncle tried to revive him after repeated sprinkling of Ganaga water … Shiva regained consciousness …. SHiva said .. ” UNCLE , actually  some terrific looking yamadootas had dragged me out …. they were carrying me away , just when MANGALGAURI DEVI came and shooed them away with her sword … all of them went away , obeying MAA … and I regained my life .. MANGALAGAURI saved my life ”  uncle said do not tell this to anyone … let us go back to our home KUNDANI

While on the way they came to PRATISHTHA nagar .. there they saw people preparing food for the great annadana which was going on for all the new visitors of the city … They asked for some place in the grand kitchen so that they could cook themselves …. The chefs said they are preparing food for the visitors why dont they take food , why they had to cook …. SHIVA said they are back from vrata niyama and teerthayatra  , they will not accept paranna bhojana …

The chefs ran to the master Hari and said someone is insisting on cooking themselves … Hari said kindly bring them to our house with sound of bells and music with utmost respect in a procession like grandeur ….The attendants brought the uncle and SHIVA to their house …. Hari asked Susheela to welcome the atithi … just as susheela bent down to wash the feet .. looking at the marks and beauty of the feet she recognised her husband … She told her father , that the guest was indeed her husband ….

FAther happy but failed to see the wedding ring and  to confirm .. asked the guest whether he indeed was SHIVA his son in law and can he prove it …. SHIVA went inside the house and brought the wedding ring from the secret place …. Father in law was extremely happy.. asked susheela to cook food and give to her husband and thanked his kuldevatas to grant him his wish at succesfful completion of remedy [ annadana ] …….

Hari allowed Shiva to take his wife to his house in KUNDANIPUR …  On the way they found a temple fo MANGALGAURI and it was tuesday of shravana masa …. so SUSHEELA worshipped at the temple and others accepted prasaad stayed in the temple and proceeded further to their house in KUNDANI … just they entered the city , the citizens were overwhelemed at pious couples and ran towards them in groups to welcome them …..

Just a sthey recahed the house .. all the three made sashtanga namaskara to DHARMADUTTA and mother in law of SUSHEELA asked … oh blesssed one .pativrata .. how did you save my son from impending death … what is the vrata you undertook which gave my son deerghaayush ,[longevity ] kindly enlighten that vrata to us all too .. SUSHEELA said oh mother . I do not know of any vrata other than just that , YOU are the Mangalgauri [ maa as present in you ] , Your HUSBAND ,my father in law is indeed PARMESHWARA [ as present in him ] , this son you have borne is only My husband , my deity [ Lord as present in him ] , Serving you three is in itself a vrata for me which brings all the auspiciousness , i know only of this vrata …Thus she served them for many many years ….

SUTA concluded thus to DRAUPADi , ” hey DRUPADNANDINI , those who do this  vrata gain all the wealth fame an longevity ….to the husband and themselves and live happily with sons and grandsons with all auspiciousness …..”

Thus ends the Extract of BHAVISHYOTTARA purana of discourse of SUTA and DRAUPADI ABOUT MANGALAGAURI VRATA ..

Venkatesh stotra – phalashruti !

Itiidam keertitam yasya Vishnoramitatejasah |trikale yahpaThennityam paapam tasya na vidyate ||

In the previous posts many of the qualities of Lord Srinivasa has been enumerated , with such qualities Srinivasa is amitatejasah ………infinitely radiant ……… Such Srinivasa if worshipped with the eight shlokas beginning with ” VENKATESHO VASUDEVAH …..” three times a day ,i.e morning , afternoon and evening at sunset ..everyday ……all the sins of a person will get destroyed and no new sins will touch him in future …..By the grace of LORD SRINIVASA …

rajadware paTethghore sangrame ripusankate | Bhutsarpapisachadi bhayam naasti kadachan||

rajadware – at the gates of palace of KING [ president  PM , BOSS , Interview , Officers , any other person of importance who would get the work done for us ]

ghore – dangerous ………

sangrame – during wars

ripusankate – when caught in between enemies , trapped by opponents .. in difficulties created by enemies ….

bhoot – goblin

sarpa – snakes

pisaach – spirits /zombies

aadi – all other such cruel creatures ……

bhayam – fear

naasti – does not occur

kadachana – never again

Note : This is a very important , time tested , shloka ……… it has a deeper impact when understood properly ………. EVeryone in their lifetimes become anxious about a probable high profile meeting , which may carry a life turning consequences …. it may be  a meeting with high profile minister for a businessman resulting in royal favours ..

it may be a hearing in a court for a favourable judgement ….

it may be a interview call for a probable job prospect …

it may be a board meeting /general body meeting for a favorable placement / response and applause ……..

it may be  a crucial appearance for a selection /audition etc

it may be a appraisal with a superior / boss/ professor  for a promotion / project submission /credits /PhD etc

it may be crucial meeting with PM or party president for a plum post  in cabinet …

In all such events , one becomes anxious /nervous when the D day arrives and especially at the gates / door of the premises of performance ……..

This extreme anxiety, fear  is difficult to curb .. sometimes it becomes impossible to overcome this syndrome …… most of the time this gives way to mental blockade and many people fail or underperform tilting under pressure , even though they are quiet capable / efficient intelligent and   deserving , they fail ………

REASON extreme anxiety and fear ……… One needs divine intervention to overcome this ………. SO all these are classified under the term  ” RAJADWARE ”

so when in above situation known as Rajadware when one recites this Venkatesha stotra all this fears will vanish and never appear again ………..

[ there will be crores of madhvas who will vouch for this statement of mine , this need not be doubted even for a second … and one should make it an habit to rceite this stotra at every meeting ]

2. Many of us have the habit of getting into troubles … especially when one is troubled with Ketu .. one gets entangled into dangers every now and then ,,,, fear is imminent in such circumstances ,,,,,,,,, all such events are known as ghore … and fears will vanish after reciting the shloka … ghore also indicates times as floods earthquake tsunami …volcanic eruptions ,,,, tornado …… hurricane ……famine …landslide .. breakdown of aircraft ship vehicles in unhabitated areas  .etc …  reciting stotra brings in instant relief …

3. sangrame – when a war breaks out  ……. both soldiers and citizens anxiety rises to a uncertain levels … an outcome of war cannot be predicted … a losing side ends up paying a heavy price …… your home is no longer yours … it is forcibly taken away by the invaders … your stable life [ business / family / employment ] everything gets disturbed .. for no fault of yours …. someone loses a war and you pay the price … your belongings are looted at gun point with external force … abuse of all sorts awaits a losing side … a loss may be even for a day …. [ next day your forces may recapture ] but that day is horrible ….  it shows how our stability is no stability at all ,,, how we all living in our own box of comfort …….. and think this is permanent and plan for  a great future  and even think our destiny is in our hands and we can create our fortunes [ all these looks good only in stable economy and stable kingdom , once destabilisation occurs one loses everything without misefforts — and then one thinks yes there is something called destiny ]  forcible eviction from box of comfort is something one never anticipates or even thinks about … all such people  suffer at the hands of destiny …

a WAR is horrible in consequence … no efforts can save us from disaster ….. one man cannot change the events in a war … lest a common man is utterly helpless ,,..  fear is but very natural … THEN WHO IS THE SAVIOUR in such times ,,,,,

SRINIVASA ….. recite this stotram many times during such times ,,,,relief will come in a personal manner ……..

WAR also gives jitters to soldiers ,,. they first time realise that life is just a bullet away … all the near and  dears come to remembrance  …. but unhappiness nothing seem to strike the mind ,,, along with it fear of loss of life becomes paramount and misery of losing near and dear ones ….brings in extreme agony … all this leads to fear of starting war ….

ARJUN too felt jitters at the beginning of war  ……….

SRNIVASA stotra recitation will allay all such fears gives extreme bravery and peace …. it will also bring relief from ill effects of WAR .sangrame …

Ripu sankate – when caught in the grip of enemies …… it becomes extremely fearful moments …….. prisoner of war .. kidnapped persons …. ransom ……..blackmail …..detention ……… victims of secret enemies .. abhichara black magic ,,,,,,,,,, machiavelian traps ….. business rivalry ..  conspiracies ……….. chall kapat ……civil war …..racial attacks ..riots …… in all such situations .. every other person becomes enemy and is out to harm ……….

In all such situations there is no hope and  self efforts does not serve any useful or meaningful relief …… SRINIVASA alone helps in such situation just he helped DRAUPADI …….. reciting this stotram brings in that invaluable help  instantly ……. need not doubt an iota ……….. SRINIVASA is very merciful to those who recite this stotra daily ……

BHOOT SARPA PISACHADI ——– bhoot are the attendants of LORD SHIVA ……They are absolutely single minded … they only create havoc in the life of the people … some people continuously suffer at the hands of some family members as physical abuse ,,,, mental torture … or ill treatment or differential treatment … this also extends to office atmosphere or some premises …. People always feel  why a particular relationship is going sour or why the atmosphere on office is not conducive and why each day ends up with fight , unhappiness or some dissatisfaction ..

they never get an answer …… the answer is presence of bhootgana in the vicinity …. these are extremely hardhearted cruel creatures ,… as long as they exist there will be miseries …….They create extreme fear …. fear to face the abuse / torture /misery ..

sarpa – sarpa  snake is an extremely vengeance full creature …  any harm done to snakes in any life .. snake keeps on tormenting the offender , it does not even forgives once even after repeated repentance ………. this sarpa dosha gives rise to frequent failures …. loss of words at crucial juncture ,,,, failed marraiges ,,,, difficulties in every undertaking ……… nothing materialises ………… once life becomes a drudgery ……….

SArpa not knowing kindness , troubles endlessly and remotely invisibly …… driving person to low self esteem and fear of failure becomes manifested ,,,,,

PISACHA – all those who are buried after death ,,, whose sanskaar after death has not been performed properly ……… those whose shraddhas are not performed regularly … those who die with unfulfilled dreams ……. those who have unusual deaths …. become pisacha ………. These pisachas are extremely troubled themselves from hunger thirst and lust ..all the bodily feeling and needs trouble them but due to lack of body …. these constantly lookout for bodies , grab them and satisfy their hunger thirst and lust … the body of the person suffers unknown miseries and breakdowns ,,,,,,,,,,, pisachas do not have any tenderness or understanding they use the bodies with utmost disrespect ………. this causes extreme fear in the body …

There are many such beings like rakshasas , apsmara etc ……. who behave very brash with possession …….. These fears are very hard to remove ,…….. slowly victims lose life …. self esteem and disinterest in life ..   SRNIVASA stotra removes these fears once for all and they never appear again in ones life…………….

Aputro labhate putran nirdhano dhanvaan bhavet | rogarto muchyate rogatbadhdo muchyet bandhnaat ||

Those who do not have children …….. [ aputro ] they will beget child [ labahte putran ] nirdhano – those suffering from poverty or in dire need of money ….. will get money and become rich [ dhnavaan bhavet ] by reciting these stotram with devotion and faith …

Roagarto [ roga artah ] those who are suffering from diseases they cry in bewilderness as only they can understand their misery and pain .. this pain is individualistic and relative to the past sins ………. it becomes unbearable ………. reciting this stotram in such situations .. reduces the pain and gives relief and diseases also subside never to trouble again ……[ rogat muchyate ]

bhaddho – those who are languishing in jails [ undertrials / convicted ]  those who have been held in custody …….those who are undergoing judicial cases … they will be released from custody ……….  fear of jail will also be destroyed ……..by reciting this stotram daily ….

Yadyatishtatamam loke tattatprapnotyaasanshayah |Aishwaryam raajsanmanam bhuktimuktiphala pradam ||vishnorlokaikasopanam sarvadukhaika nashanam |sarvaaishwaryapradam nrunam sarvamangal karakam ||

Those who recite this shloka daily … they will

loke – In this world [ three worlds – swarga antariksha bhumi ]    ….. yatyat  – all that that — ishtatamam  —is most desired …. [utmost desires , even desires of highest kind .. impossible types but most ishta desirous ] ……….. tat tat- .….. all those those ……….. prapnoti –— will be fructify [ materialise attained  ] ……asanshayah – without doubt … do not even doubt it …….. your desires of imposible kind and yet most desirous in the three worlds  , it may not be just one desire ….. all that has been desired by the one who recites this daily …. [ man keeps desiring and probably everyone takes it for dejection that all desires may not be fulfilled ..] but madhvas who recite this stotra  daily … all those fortunate initiated into reciting this as daily part of their daily pooja …… can rest be assured that  , their every desire as they get up early in the morning and as life progresses ,,,,, however difficult , far fetched , impossible desires they may ……….. each and very such desires … and all such desires that prop up in future …… all those even if they are somewhere in other worlds too …. will be fulfilled without doubt ……… condition attached is recite the Venkatesh stotram three times a day …. everyday ……….and forget how it fructifies … just desire .. and lo it gets materialised …. SRINIVASA has one palm in vara mudra … he is here to grant wishes ……..

AISHWARYAM – prosperity wealth ………  RAajsanmanam – awards /recognitions /felicitations / academic excellence /trophies /world cup / championship / bharat ratna / padmashree / national awards /oscars /nobel prize / olympic medal / scholarships everything will be materialised …[aapnoti ]

Bhukti – all kinds of enjoyments of wealth vehicles house of material kind

mukti – relief from cycle of birth and death……..

phala – all such fruits

pradam – SRINIVASA gives …

 VISHNUH – NARAYANA …. LOKAIKAsopanam – vishnulok means VAIKUNTHA  eksopanam – to get into the VAIKUNTHA loka it is foremost step …….. reciting this stotra forms first foremost step in sadhana to reach vaikuntha …..

NRunam – for all humans ……….  SARVAAISHWARYAPradam ———- it gives all the wealth of various kinds [ yogaishwarya , sidhhaishwarya ,ashtaishwarya ] to the one who recites this stotra with devotion ……..

 Sarvadukhaiknashanam –  for all sorts of miseries , unhappiness , dissatisfactions , this stotra is foremost instrument of destruction ..

Sarvamangal karakam – All sorts of auspiciousness is brought in by this stotra …

In this world one desires … desires many things ……. things after things ……

even if desires are fulfilled … one is unhappy because of lack of qualities [ asihwarya ] even if they are there , there may be no dearth of good things ……. but still there may be miseries ………all these miseries arising out of sansaara will be destroyed ..

even if desires are fulfilled and no miseries exist ……… inauspiciousness may cause dissatisfaction … so this stotra brings more auspiciousness ,,,,,

All material benefits may be enjoyed .. fame may be enjoyed …….. desires may be manifested ……all auspicious may hit our perfect life .. but with death all ends …. BUT with this stotra even after death these remains intact as it gives relief from sansaara and places one at the pedestal of VAIKUNTHA ……….

 Mayavi parmanandam tyaktva Vaikunthamuttamam | swamipushkarniteere ramaya saha modate |

In sansaarvastha all the souls will have their svaroopananda covered by a sheath .. thus they are not able to realise true self happiness …When they reach Vaikuntha , this sheath is uncovered and all souls experience unrestricted free flowing their svaroopananda ……… Thus this VAIKUNTHA is known as Sarvottama loka …… VAIKUNTHAUTTAMAM …….[ in all other lokas this ananda is less and in Vaikuntha it is highest that is why it uttam loka because soul cannot find happiness of the kind in Vaikuntha in any of the other lokas .. in the least on earth .. ]

BUt Srinivasa NARAYANA has no constraint with respect to his ananda in any lokas ,,, In any lOka he may be He exhibits his ananda in a poorna  manner completely …..It neither reduces or increases with LOkas ….. Thus He can stay anywhere everywhere as per HIS wish [ MAYAVI ]… So For sometime LORD SRINIVASA decided to leave VAIKUNTHA [ VAikuntham TYAKTVA ] and stay for a while in SWAMIPUSHKARNI at VENKATACHALA  ….

Laxmidevi preconstruing the desire of the LORD [ a excellent wife construes her HUSBANDS’ desires along with his contemplation ……… ] Now as LORD desired to stay in pushkarini on earth .. SHe too decided to LEAVE VAIKUNTHA [ in one form ] , to stay with her Husband .. so she took up a  dispute ……throwing wanton tantrum [ PREMA KALAHA ] over sage BHRIGU’s kick and left for earth ..

Now SRINIVAS is staying in PUSHKARINI teere …banks of SWAMIPUSHKARNI .. sporting [ modate ]along with [ Ramaya saha ] LAXMIDEVI [ one form  in his vakshsthala … mole on chest srivatsavaksha … and one form in invisible mode ] expressing his complete PARAMANANDA …as MAHALAXMI serves her LORD ……

Kalyanaadadbhutgatraya kaamitartha pradayine | Srimadvenkatnathaya srinivasaya te Namaha ||

Kalyan – auspicous  adbhut – full of surprising , spell bounding, ashcharyakar , gatraya – bodied …….. kamit – desired  …. arth – things 

pradayine – one who bestows …………..

Srimad venkatnathaya – the most fortunate and  full of wealth and mysteriously auspicious .. sarvasoubhagyadayak ……. Venkatachal — mount venkatachal … is being presided by SRINIVAS thus he is SRIMADVENKATNATHA …

SRINIVASAYA— Lord who is known in all the universe  by name SRINVASA Oh such Lord

TeNAMAHA— Namaskaras to YOU ….

Oh LORD you have a APRAKRUT deha … Thus You are full of auspicous qualities and thus you are KALYANA …..such a body no other person has thus it is ascharya .. and ADBHUTGATRA …..  You grant all the boons to the devotees more than their expectation and satisfaction in this world and other world , in this birth and after death too … so you are KAMITARTHA PRADAYINE …  You are the presiding Deity [ worshipped in whole universe as SRINIVASA ] of VENKATACHALA and thus it has become very auspicious and fortunate for those who touch it or land on it ……. Thus  OH LORD  SRINIVASA  , namaskara to YOU ….

Harisamsmaranam- The best mode of Prayashchitta !!!

Krute papeanutapo vai yasya punsa prajayate |

Prayashchittam tu tasyoktam harisamsmaranam param ||

We do many sins everyday . Every sin over a period of time becomes a prarabdha . Once it becomes prarabdha one pays for his sins and is subjugated to dukha .

In Bhagavadgeeta , ARJUN asks on behalf of all of the troubled souls that :

OH Lord , why is it that unwillingly one is forced to do the sins under some influence .Which is this force ?

Geetacharya says :

Primarily it is KAMA [desires] and as a result accompanies Krodha [ anger] etc . which drives people to sin . That means , humans primarily desire something , when it is not fulfilled or if the desired is under threat [ threat of extinction , loss or damage] , one gets emotions like , greed , anger ,jealousy etc and then one is inspired to sin .

These defects like anger lust greed etc are the byproducts of the rajoguna . These are presided by [ inspired by ] demons like KALNEMI etc . BUT LORD is the main inspiration . ie EVEN evil is under the control of LORD .

Lord keeping these asuras [ demons] like kali kalnemi etc as the medium of inspiration ,activates  the rajoguna in the persons according to their capacity ,qualities and karma and efforts , thereby arises lust anger and greed etc in the humans leading to sins .

Though Lord is chief regulator of sins among the jeevas HE himself is not subjugated or influenced by these rajoguna /tamoguna . Thus these defects do not exist in HIM and yet he regulates these qualities and only to grace his devotees makes them sin .

The demons like Kalnemi etc are secondary regulators of the sin by the inspiration of LORD . BUT these demons do get influenced by the rajo/tamo gunas and are chief perpetrators of the sins in other jeevas .

As jeevas sin owing to these inspirations under the influence of KAlnemi etc , chief fruits of the [ greater fruits ] goes to these demons only and as jeeva is also part of the sin though forcibly participated [ owing to prarabdha ] he is also liable for dukha .

We all are reaping the ill effects of the sins of previous births . So sins of this birth may not be instantly fruitful .But in coming births even these are going to trouble . Some sins like bramhahatya etc are forceful in execution and they take effects even in the present birth also . These overlap with existing prarabdha adding to the woes ,

Such sins ,when committed by the unwitting mind , causes fear of ill-effects . To avoid such ill effects and in order to save oneself from the clutches of aftereffects of such sins , the remedy given by the shastras is PRAYASCHITTA . [ PARIHARA]

In bhagavat Parikshit Maharaj asks , what are sins , varieties of sins and its effects and various hells to reap such sins  . How to get rid of such effects . In answer to these  SHUKACHARYA presents the methodology of PRAYASCHITTA . HE says , just as a good doctor ,examines the disease and its extent in a human body and thereafter suggests a suitable treatment , similarly a sadhak [devotee] should examine the sins he had committed in his lifetime and take up appropriate prayaschitta according to the shastras .

Usually when one speaks about Prayaschitta , one is given a list of homa havan japa tapa dana upavasa. Is prayaschitta really about only kriya like homa etc . These are infact only its angas they themselves are not prayaschitta . If it were  so then performing such homa dana is akin to KUNJARSHOUCHA [ the bath of elephant ]  . Thus commented PARIKSHIT .

Srimadananda teertha has given excellent solution to such doubts . He tabulates prayashchitta as follows .

  1. One who has done the sins should have definite remorse[pashchattapa] and should have sincere repentance towards the sins and  inclination towards atonement of sins .
  2. For Such remorse to occur  [ paschattap ] correct information of sins should exist
  3. .Chief part of the prayashchitta is HArisamsmaranam ie remembering lord with devotion .
  4. Secondarily other aspects of homa havan dana should also be undertaken as a service to LORD remembering him during such acts as well .

Here the word Hari smaranam is appended with the word Sam . This indicates that one must remember HARI with complete devotion [ auspiciously] . It should also accompany the contemplation on the quality of HARI ie one who destroys the sins . It is said that human however hard he tries cannot sin to the extent which cannot be destroyed by the chant of HARI . There is no sin in the universe which cannot be overcome by the chant of HARI .

Lord should be meditated[ smaranam, remembrance ] as the one who mitigates sins . At the same time one must realize his magnanimity . He is bhaktavatsal  -one who is very kind towards his devotees an forgives their sins ,however grave they may be .

Tantra sara says one begets the fruits as per his meditation ie , as one thinks of LORD the bhava involved in such thoughts is what the results constitutes . [ if one thinks about LORD as kind and destroyer of sins , one gets the same result contrary thinking will result in otherwise ] .

Rudra -Indra – chandra all these devatas have done grave sins like Bramha hatya etc yet Lord has forgiven them and saved them from harmful effects and on the contrary blessed them with definite Moksha . These incidents are abundant in Shastra and Purana and prove the bHaktvaatsalya of LORD NARAYANA .

Let us first understand different  SINS . Vishnudharmottar purana gives a exhaustive list of sins . Why should we have info on sins , because If we need to atone the sins then we must have remorse[ pashchattap] , the paschattap primarily consists of acceptance of having done the sin and then a strong resolution that such sins will not be repeated . and then when prayaschitta is done one gets relief from the karma .

BUT  if we do not know at all what we are doing is sin then how can we feel remorse and atone for it ! Thus it is necessary to know that”  these are sins which we must not do ” .

Such papa parichaya is known only through the shastras .


each lesser in the order THAN THE PREVIOUS SINS .

  1. Bramhahatya [ killing of bramhin ]
  2. surapaana [ dinking alcohol or drugs]
  3. Suvarnasteya [stealing gold ]
  4. Gurupatni gaman [ abusing wife of preceptors]
  5. Mahapataki sanyog [ association with these sinners ]

These are panchamahapataka ie grave sins [ usually unpardonable by the LORD and at the same time gives instantaneous downfall]

  1. Inviting poor bramhin and not giving him alms ,
  2. bringing obstructions to the living of bramhins ,
  3. disrupting their livelihood .
  4. burning or destroying ashram , houses ,villages or towns [ blasts]
  5. stopping thirsty cows from going towards the pond or water bodies
  6. Without knowing the actual purport of vedas and shastras , demeaning them or insulting them
  7. making fun of deaf dumb blind etc and stealing their articles
  8. Calling teachers and preceptors by their first name or ekavachan ie tu etc
  9. Disobedience towards elders and teachers and making a sound of HUM in resentment towards their words .
  10. If anything is most precious to a weak person [ deen vyakti]  just disturbing his possession .

All these sins are equivalent to BRAMHAHATYA .

Leaving asides vedas , foulmouthing vedas , giving false witness ,killing a friend , eating inedible foods All these are equivalent to SURAAPAAN [ alcohol and drug abuse]

Usurping mortagaged article , illegal human trafficking , horse silver diamonds and land grabbing  come under the pretext of SUVARNASTEYA [ stealing GOLD ]

SEX with

  1. brothers and sisters [ sayoni stree ]
  2. unmarried girls [ kumari ]
  3. outcaste woman [ antyaj stree ]
  4. Friends wife [ sakhyu]
  5. daughter in law [ putra vadhu]

All these are equivalent to GuRUPATNI SANGAM .

These are unpardonable sins .

Dharma viveka says

  1. killing ants are Kshudra papa
  2. killing animals having bones ,and stealing fruits grains etc are known as papa
  3. misbehaving with women is known as upapataka
  4. killing / atrocities on shudras is known as pataka
  5. Bramhahatya etc is known as mahapataka
  6. stealing Anything belonging to devatas ie temple properties are known as sumahapataka
  7. insulting devatas [deities ] and sajjanas [ devotees] is known as sumahhatar pataka
  8. Sins towards LORD KEshava is known as MAHANMAHATTAR PATAKA .

What are sins done  towards  LORD ? Following contemplations are sins :

  1. There is someone equivalent to KESHAVA
  2. I am GOD
  3. Bramha shiva  shakti etc are all equivalent  to VISHNU
  4. There is no qualities in Keshava [ nirgunabramha]
  5. ALL those who have attained MOKSHA become KESHAVA [ GOD]
  6. There is no form to the GOD
  7. Keshava has body just like us souls . [ trigunatmak deha]
  8. Just like souls God too has birth death and old age .
  9. Sometimes GOD undergoes misery and ignorance[ dukha agyana ]
  10. Keshava is subservient to another GOD
  11. Somebody is superior to KESHAVA .

All these form disobedience towards LORD KRISHNA .

Usually God’s qualities are known as SUR . Thinking about these qualities in one’s own self is known as SURAAPAAN . This is mahapataka.

We always keep saying , ” I DID ‘ I ATE ‘ MY HOUSE ” etc . all these statement shows our ignorance towards the fact that we are dependent on LORD and HE alone is independent and everything belongs to HIM . But saying it to be ours is akin to attributing his independent quality to ourselves ,thus it is suraapaan .

Vishnu is known as BRAMHANA . Saying there is no GOD VISHNU is akin to BRAMHA HATYA .Lord is everywhere and HE sees us everywhere , yet we forget this and sin so we think HE[ BRAMHAN VISHNU ] is not there and we commit Bramhahatya on a daily basis .

Thus we are all sinners . Thus we say

aparaadh sahasraani kriyanteaharnisham maya|

taani sarvani me dev kshamasva purushottam ||

Hey Purushottam , ! day and night I have been doing thousands of sins kindly forgive them all !!

WHen we ask with remorse we must remember HOW LORD has saved others from hienous crimes and its sins .


Bramhins are the carriers of Bramha vidya they are the custodians of the DHARMA. Killing such a bramhin or insulting him is known as Bramha hatya . This sin has been done on a largest scale BY SHIVA .

BRAMHA is the presiding diety and chief among the BRAMHINS . SHIVA cuts down his fifth head . Ambhrani sukta says that even after such a grave crime SHIVA was exonerated by VISHNU and he did not suffer much on account of it and was forgiven .

Bhrigu rishi kicked VISHNU who is all pervading bramha . Such a sin was also forgiven by the LORD and  Bhrigu got the grace of LORD .

Tvastra had the bramhin sons by name VISHWAROOPA and Vrutrasura , Indra killed them and BRAHAHATYA engulfed was mitigated by the LORD and DEVENDRA regained his place in the heavens .

Sagar and his sons insulted LORD KAPIL the BRAMHIN , yet LORD brought the GANGA to earth to mitigate their sins and gave then MOKSHA .

Parikshit insulted SHaMIK rishi in samadhi by enroping a snake . FOR This BRAMHAHATYA  of PARIKSHIT LORD graced him with BHAGAVAT through SHUKACHARYA and Parikshit attained MOKSHA .


Goddess LAXMI  is ever present in GOLD , so stealing GOLD is sin towards GODDESS . THis sin was committed for the first time by BALI . BALI once stole the KIRIT [ crown ] of LORD NARAYANA sleeping in the KSHEERASAGAR [ AMUKTA STHANA ] . GARUDA chased BALI and grabbed it . BUT GARUDA placed it on the HEAD of KRISHNA in DWAPARA YUGA while HE was in GOMANTAKA PARVAT . THIS CROWN fitted exactly the head of KRISHNA establishing that there is no differenece between LORD NARAYANA and KRISHNA .

BALI INDIRECTLY BECAME THE INSTRUMENT FOR SUCH A EXHIBITION OF QUALITY OF NARAYANA . BALI infact got punya rather than sin for his acts , such is the magnanimity of LORD towards his devotees .

Shatdahnva and Kritavarma alongwith these two Akrur participated in the filching of SYAMANTAK MANI  . Akrur hid the mani in his clothes from Krishna . LORD forgave him and also allowed him to keep the ruby .


Sons of KUBERA , Nalkubar and Manigreeva , after consuming alcohol , nakedly were sporting in ganga with many women .NARADA cursed them to be ARJUNa trees . Krishna mitigated their sins and curse by his touch .

All yadavas drank mayreyak alcohol and in ensuing brawl killed themselves but their act resulted in the Krishna leaving for paramdham thus giving them more punya .


Moon chandra indulged with wife of his preceptor BRAHASPATI and had to suffer kushta [ leprosy] . BUT LORD saved him from hell BY TAKING BIRTH IN HIS LINEAGE OF CHANDRAVANSHA as KRISHNA .  KRISHNA brought enormous fame to the Lineage of CHANDRA and therby as his forefather [ mane ] moon was exonerated .


When we befriend pataki sinner we share his sins . RAVAN KUMBAKARNA ,SHISHUPALA DANTAVAKTRA , HIRANYAKSHA HIRANYAKASHIPU , NALKUBAR manigreeva all these were residing in the same body alongwith the demons , JAY VIJAY , DHUNI CHAMU ,

SIMILARLY PUTANA had both URVASHI and TATAKI . Karna had SURYA and DAMBODHBHAV   LORD KRISHNA SAVED ALL THESE good souls even when they were in pataki sanyog ,

KAnsa minister AKRUR or his sairandhri  TRIVAKRA everyone were freed from sins by LORD KRISHNA .

THUS when MAHAPATAKAS can be forgiven by LORD KRISHNA by bringing pashchattap among the devotees and through Prayashchitta , then small PATAKAS or UPAPATAKAS wil also be destroyed by LORD . HE forgave

  1. SHringi for giving curse to a sane KING PARIKSHIT
  2. KALIYA snake for biting him in YAMUNA
  3. AJAMILA BRAMHIN for veshya gaman
  4. GANDHARI for cursing KRISHNA to exterminate yadava lineage
  5. KING SATRAJIT for false allegation of SYAMANTAKMANI apahaar .

Thus LORD forgives when devotee does prayaschitta through his samsmaranam by meditating all these events of HARI and paschattap and homa japa dana etc .

. Krichcha is the best form of PRAYASCHITTA . ALL such prayaschitta should start from dwadashi tithi.

Krishnarpanamastu .

Once Indra was tiored of all his wealth and power , he decided to renounce the world and decided to strive for moksha. He went to Kailash parvat and started serving Parvati and Rudra there . oNe day while serving them he sawa beautiful woman . She was Chitrasena , wife of Kubera . Indra lost his senses to her beauty .

Indra called Manmath and ordered him to get Chitrasena to swoon over him . Manmath with his bow of Sugarcane and arrow of flowers caused intense passion in Chitrasena to be attracted to Indra . Indra pulled her into his arms and took her into his plane to a place never known to Devatas and asuras inside the kandara of Mandar parvat .

There he personally looked after the beautiful chitrasena enchanting her with every happiness of the swarga .

Here Kubera became totally devasted at the news of his missing wife from mansarovar. He decided to commit suicide . His minister Kantha kubja advised him not to loose heart and look for his wife and seek her release from the unknown thief . He adised him to take the help of Vibheeshan his brother .

Kubera went to Vibheeshan and in loneliness told him of his plight , Vibheeshan called his most able Rakshashi Nadijangha , who was expert in maya to look for the wife of Kubera , chitrasena among all the devatas and asuras in the world.

Nadijangha tooka a beautiful form , such a form that no one could keep his eyes off her and swooned to possess her .

Soon she reached Amaravati . Indra saw her and desired to possess her . He sent Ashvini devatas to get her to his chamber . Ashwini devatas pleaded her to be with their king Indra . She asked them to briong Indra himself to her to please her and she would not go to him,.

Indra came to the beautiful women . She said she would like Indra to fulfill her wish and only then take her to his palace. Indra gave her a word. Nadijangha asked , she would like Indra to introduce her to all the women he has enjoyed till date , to see if any of them is as beautiful as she is ? only then she would oblige Him . Indra agreed .

He showed her entire Amravati and all his palaces . Nad then said I have one more in madar parvat , I shall show you but you must not tell anyone about it . So both set out towards Mandar in aplane . While flying , Indra [ posessed by Kali ] happened to befront Narad muni , he became shy in the presence of muni , but Narad playfully asked , “Indra is everything Okay in Amravati , and how about you Nadijangha , Is Vibheeshana doing fine “

Indra immediately understanding the deciet of NADIJANGHA , TOOK HER DOWN INTO THE FOREST , and was about to kill her . The forest belonged to the muni Trinabindu , Muni objected to killing of woman in his ashram . But Indra disregarding Muni Killed her . Trinabindu cursed Indra to become a woman . Indra became a woman instantly .

All the devatas worried about ther king in a womans body , went to Bramha to seek his release . Bramha told except Vishnu none will be capable of relieving Indra for his misdeeds . All the devatas , went to Mandar and sent back Chiterasena to Kubera and asked Bramha to give some mantra to relieve Indra from the body of woman .Bramha advised two lakhs japa of Astakshara mantra . Indra practisede ashtakshara and was relieved from muni shapa and became male again to Rule over Swarga.

in all questions Jeeva sutra confers longevity ,vitality and wealth .Roga sutra gives losses and worry and ill health . Mrutyu sutra gives increase of illness fear ,and failure in undertakings.

In whichever Bhuta [earth fire etc] the sutra is seen that bhuta is afflicted by disease .

Apart from above sutras Trisphuta ,pranasphuta ,dehasphuta chatusphuta and panchasphuta Mrutyusphuta and Sukshmasphuta indicate details of ailments.Gulika navamsa gives exact time of death.

Any relationship between pranasphuta and dehasphuta gives long life.

Normally an astrologer should abstain from describing his achievements of predictions. But following are given to establish efficacy of Astrology in determining the disease and [not to extol astrologer but astrology itself]

Once in a visit to family friend , I found a relative of my friend grieving along with his family . Their son a software engineer in an MNC was given ultimatum by doctors . the Son was 30 years old and required immediate replacement of kidney in a two days or definite death was what doctors had told bluntly to the Father of the boy.

Boy was recently married and had a six months baby .

The case: The s/w boy had terrible pain in the thigh , he went to doctor, they advised him tests. After initial test they declared his BP was abnormal and then a biopsy of thigh nerve and then they went neurological tests , when they found nothing , they advised angiogram ,plasty et all. Finally they declared his pain was due to kidney failure . his both kidneys have failed and one requires replacement that too within two days else it will fatal.

All these test took around six months of time and medication costing 80000 rs of which test were 65000 and medicines were 15000 . Of course the MNC paid his all bills.

He was then voluntarily withdrawn from service. the whole family was in grief.As no Kidney was in sight[donor] . Father agreed to donate one he was 70 years old.

It was a day before these transplant that those people came across me and I instantly told them the boy had no illness and his longevity was high. Father need not give his kidney .

The words of longevity heartened them but no disease words did not inspire them.But they invited me to their house to have a look at the boy. who had left all hopes of life . his wife was weeping and child was very cute. Parents were in total grief. Boy had no perspiration he had cool of a saint . How can a person of abnormally high BP be without perspiration and super cool .

I convinced the boy of good health and inspired the entire family to go for a second opinion.

The entire family went for a second opinion in a big hospital in the same city. But the second opinion of this hospital repeated the tests and gave same opinion. The family was totally disheartened. I did not give up , I asked them to try once again in another city .

They went to another city and carried out tests !Lo! All tests were normal , The boy had a minor injury and that resulted in sever pain could be cured by medicines after one month however the family also undertook pranic healing to recover faster.

Case 2: I was waiting in a waiting room of a platform , a family was totally preparing for a funeral of a still alive man. Who had a cancer in the mouth .The Doctor they had met just had told within few hours the time would be come. so they mercilessly discharged the patient , who could not talk. The mobile hones of the family elder were ringing and only thing they were discussing were how to port him to other world and how this can be even before reaching destination.

I looked at the man in a easy chair watching helplessly , he could not talk ,but his eyes were moist , he had no plan to die. He wanted desperately to live. But Doctor refused to operate him.

What was wrong with him. He had a cancer inside the cavity. He could not open the mouth . there was no way anything could be inserted through his mouth to treat the cancer [chemo therapy ] . So doctor declared as chemo therapy could not be done , his cancer is in last stages and he will die any moment.

I enquired the grieving people and then they showed me X-rays and reports . The family was very poor and one of the BPL family[ below poverty line] and they had gone to the doctor who was a specialist who grants appointment only once in six months. they had got the doctor by special letter from local MLA .

Doctor obliged in seeing the patient but refused to treat him because he assumed patient could not afford his fees and treatment . So he wrote in the report , as there is no scope for surgery [and also patients financial condition do not permit] , the operation cannot be done.

I took the elder of the family aside and said , look , dont believe what doctors say , person does not die just because doctors say he is going to die. This man has long life.

He did not believe me . They said how can they remove cancer he cannot open the mouth . I told , cut the jaw make a incision and treat the cancer and then replace the jaw . This way he will survive , you cannot make funeral preparation before a live man. This is atrocious.

Then elderly said From where are we going to bring money. i told him give me the number of his MLA , I talked to him over phone ,and asked him to call up the Doctor and assure him of his treatment with his funds[MLA funds] , he will be blessed and popular for saving a life . He agreed.

Next day Doctor gave a fine surgery and man lived long happily.
