Raghavendra Suprabhaat-3 !

Shloka-8

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 ” ..it 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 …..

shloka -12

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 .
  • MADHVACHARYA [ BHEEMSEN ]has written a BHASHYA on BRAMHA SUTRAs .
  • 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 …
  • Oh RAGHAVENDRA suprabhaatam

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 …..

Shree VAYUAVATARATRAYA suprabhatam

Shreeraamadootahanuman yadunaathdaas Shree Bheemsen vararoupyapuraavataar | shreevyaasahrutprayatmaameetashuddhabuddhe shreemadhvaraaj bhavataattav suprabhaatam ||

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 ….

SHree RAGHAVENDRA SUPRABHAATA

Bramhagnyayaa ditikule bahudoshapoorNe jaatoapi bhaktibharito bhuvanam samastam | yoapeepavo diviShadaam var shankukarNa Shree RAAghavendra bhavataatav suprabhaatam ||

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 …

ShankukarNaakhyadevastu bramhavaakyascha bhootale | Prahlaad iti vikhyaato bhoobhaar kshapaNE ratah | sa eva RAAGHVENDRAAKHYA:  kalau MANTRALAYEABHAVAT |
