APPA DARSHANA - 13
Date : Dec 20 2007
The most sacred Pandava Poojita Sri Panchamukhi Praana Deva idol Ibharamapura's Appa received by the Maharaja of Mysore
and the Miracle of Appa, that saved the devotees by the
blessings of Sri Hari Vayu
and Mantralaya Sri Raghavendra
Gurusarvabhoumaru are described in Mantralaya(213) - IbharamapuraDarshana(13).
Ibharamapura's Appa a great
devotee of Rayaru obtained the most sacred Pandava Poojita Sri Panchamukhi Praanadevaru's idol
which was hidden in the underground of the Mysore palce. Sri Mummadi Krishnaraja Vodeyar the Maharaja
liberally handed over the idol along with several ornaments and silk clothes.
Thus became highly grateful by offering to satpaatra
like Appa. From that day onwards Appa
always carried Panchamukhi Praanadevaru
where ever he went.Worshipped till his last breath.
Even now the idol is being worshipped daily by the Vamshastharu
of Ibharamapura's Appa. It
is quite heartening to know that Mantralaya Rayaru though lived in Bhikshaalaya
- Bichali for twelve years happily accepting the seva of Sri Appanacharya, daily
meditating at the sanctum of Panchamukhi, got the Divya Darshana of Swami Tirumala Srinivasa there only, Panchamukhi Praanadevaru was
highly pleased towards Rayaru. Such a divine Panchamukhi idol was with Appa.
Which became the Aaaraadhya Upaasana
of Appa. Appa with his
noble qualities by the blessings of Rayaru has
bestowed the desired things to the devotees.
The house of Koosana
Kalale became the divine center owing to the arrival
of abundant devotees for the sake of Appa. Ibharamapura Chetana simply went
on wiping the tears of the needy satvikas and maximum
blessings for them by Mantralaya Rayaru.
Thus this house turned into a sanctum. It went to such a level that the leprosy
etc. diseased patients after taking the holy bath of the bathed waters of Appa cured and became hail and healthy. Appa's
bathed water was full of fragrance. The holy Sudha Parayana has yielded better fruits to the devotees.
had been to Nanjangud. There Appa
resided in the house of Sri Charana Rangamma. In her house the water scarcity was high. To dig
a well they have to go deep minimum hundred feet. She expressed her
difficulties. Kind Appa made a mark from his finger
in the back yard and asked to dig the well there only. To the surprise of all
the abundant sweet water came soon after digging about 30-40feet. We can say
these are the Miracles of this Satvika Chetana. Everything was in accordance with the Sadaachaara of our Sri Madacharya.
Dear devotees please see how sacred are our residents of the bank of Tungabhadra.
Again there is one more instance in
Nanjanagud. Appa as per the
invitation of Anantaramaiah went to his residence for
the pooja of Sri Panchamukhi
Praanadevaru. After the pooja
the couple detailed their unhappiness as they did not have the Santaana. Ibharamapura's Appa blessed the couple and offered Santana Yantra. By this a son was born. But he was too weak, lean
and thin. The parents worried a lot. They never bothered about the comments of
others. The couple said that by whose blessings he is born, the same blessings
will protect him. The couple prayed a lot with devotion to Appa
on that day. That night Ibharamapura's Chetana appeared in the dream of that noble couple. Appa took the child on his lap and slowly touched the body
and said to Antantaramaiaha's wife that this child
will be healthy with full life span (Purnaayusha),earn
name and fame and well placed in the society with high position. In the morning
to the surprise of all the house of Anantaramaiaha
was full of fragrance with Kasturi and sandal oil.
That pleasing fragrance was nothing but the power of Malkhed
Sri Jaiteertharu's Sudha Paaraayana and of Mantralaya Rayaru's Parimala Paaraayana. The joy and satisfaction of the noble couple at
Nanjanagud cannot be described in words. Really by
the Blessings of Appa Anantaramaiaha's
son shined as per the wordings of Appa of Ibharamapura.
Our heart will throb to visit and
enjoy the panorama of Mantralaya and Bhikshaalaya. Bichali Sri Appanacharya has said in the famous Sri Raghavendra
Mangalashtaka, it is appropriate to quote:
Yatiraat Gururmae SyadBhayaapaha GnyanaBhaktiSuputraayuhu
Yasha Shree PunyaVardhana
Those who are dear to Rayaru will always lead a happy life and will get Courage,Gnyana,Bhakti, Suputra,Longlife,Wealth
and Punya will be increase.
Ibharamapura's Appa distributed
the siddhi liberally to all who so ever requested and
believed. Each and every action of Appa was nothing
but LOKOPAKAARA. Everything was in the frame work of Dharma - Sadaachara of Sri Madacharya and
the Paramanugrha of Sri Mantralaya
Sri Raghavendrateertha Gurusarvabhoumaru.
Sprinkled the Siddhi,Shakti and Yukti
of Sri HanumantaDevaru.
We are highly indebted to this
great Punya Chetana.
