IBHARAMAPURA APPA DARSHANA - 11

Date : Dec 3 2007

Background

Ibharamapuraís Appa the great devotee of Bichali - Bhikshalaya Sri Appanacharya Priya Mantralaya Sri Raghavendraru visited the palace of the Maharaja of Mysore and the Miracles are described here

Meaning

Mantralaya Rayaruís great devotee Ibharamapuraís Krishnacharya, Krishnarya, popularly called as Appa has completely understood the Siddhi of Bichali Sri Appanacharyaís Gurustotra. Such a great Punya Chetana entered the palace of Maharaja of Mysore. The elaborate arrangements to welcome Appa cannot be described in words. Because the king Sri Mummadi Krishnaraja Vodeyara was himself a great scholar, gnyani, devotee and above all a kind human heart always throbbing towards the satvikasbhaktas and the sajjanas. The decoration of the meticulous palace looked as though it was Maya Nirmita and the work of Vishwakarma, the palace was glittering and shining. Though the fragrance of flowers decoration and the sandal scent was abundant in the palace, the fragrance which came out from the body of Appa excelled all this. Even Maharaja astonished. Simply bowed his head to this sacred personality and came to know that Appa is Mahimavanta, Daivamsha and Pavaada Purusha. Washed the sacred feet of Appa with gold vessels. Wiped the feet with the silk cloth, worshipped with gandha,Akshatae and mantrakshatae. The king was so much impressed that he offered several silver, gold and diamond ornaments, articles, silk and jaratari dhotis, shawls, clothes and several things to Appa and requested Appa to accept. Maharaja confirmed that Ibharamapuraís Appa is SATPAATRA. A great meet of two divine stalwarts at the sannidhaana of Sri Chamundeshwari. Whatever Appa received and offered to Maruti. As our Mantralaya Rayaru offering every thing to Sri Sri Hari.

Our Sri Lakumeesha Dasaru has described:

Kshonipatigishtaarthasalisi
Mahaanubhava Virajisuta
Sanmanavanu SweekarisutaliKaiganikeyaKondu
Maan Avamaana Bhagavada
Adheenavenutali Tilidu Higgade
Yenu Aaduduellaa Aa
Pavamanagarpisidaa

Just like our Sri VijayaDasaru Appa surrendered Samarpana to Pavamana, a great devotee of Panchamukhi Praanadevaru. The Sankalpa SiddhiManasika Sankalpa - sincerity and humbleness of Ibharamapuraís Appa was superb and unique. This made him a Mahimavanta Bhakta of Mantralaya Rayaru.

As already described the Maharaja happily agreed to offer what ever Appa desires and demands. In the palace Appa asked to dig more than six feet at the North East corner. As per the Appaís saying the digging started. All were anxiously looking what they will get and find after digging. To the surprise of all after digging six feet deep, they found a beautiful silver statue of Panchamukhi PraanaDevaru. All felt extremely happy and folded their hands with devotion. Appa said this Statue was worshipped by Pandavas, the most sacred and the siddhi, and Appa desired to worship and opted as Aaradhya Deva. Thus Panchamukhi Pavamana desired the worship of Ibharamapuraís Appa. After seeing Pavamana Appa with devotional ecstasy composed the shloka as he had ashukavitva:

VandeVaanaraNaarasimhaKhagaraatKrodaaschaVaktraanvitam
DivyalankaranamTripanchaNayanamRuja
HastaabjairasiKhetiPustakaSudhaKumbhaKushaadeenHalaan
KhatvaangamPhaniBhooruhamDashabhujamSarvaariDarpaapaharam

Dashabhuja,Panchavadana,Garuda,Naarasimha,Vaanara,Varaaha, HayavadanaPanchamukhi all in one statue sannihita in Pavamaana. The divine incarnation of Sri Harisarvottama Vayujeevottama Appa described to Maharaja and to all the satvikas of Mysore. In the palace as per the request of Sri Mummadi Krishnaraja Maharaja Appa performed the first pooja of pavamaana in the palace itself.The King liberally offered gold and jewels ornaments to Maruti and thus became highly gratitude.

Panchamukhi Praana Devaru who was dwelling in the palace, under the ground, six feet below at the North East direction, graciously came to Ibharamapuraís Appa and became Aaradhya Daiva. A dawn of new era in the history of Mysore, a mirror to the greatness of the kings of the Mysore and how the great chetanas were being honoured and how the Maharajas were always indulged in the punyakaryas are all depicted fairly by the Dasas and the historians.We are grateful to know all these things that how the devotees of Mantralaya Rayaru have shined and shined like the stars.

In the palace there was a devil (Bhoota) causing trouble since several years, Appa simply by Yoga Shakti and the Divya Shakti of Mantralaya Rayaru vanished and showered the Blessings of Mantralaya Rayaru and installed the silver Mruttika Brindavana in the palace of Mysore, so as to enable to move from one place to the other. Thus Appa enlightened the BhaktiAnugraha of Bichali and Manchali. Maharajaís act of Samarpana to Appa will be continued in the next series.
