The importance of Dhanurmaasa and the Miracle of Ibharamapuraís Appa by the Blessings of Mantralaya Sri Raghavendra Gurusarvabhoumaru are described here in Mantralaya(214) Ė Ibharamapura Darshana -14.
Dhanurmaasa is the dawn (Arunodaya) of Sri in the Vaikuntha Loka. Owing to this auspicious time Pooja, Alankara and Naivedya and Aaradhana of Sri Hari will be observed at all the sanctums. In Mantralaya and Bhikshaalaya - Bichali which are situated on the Sacred bank of Tungabhadra, the grandeur of Dhanurmaasa cannot be described in mere words. One should experience personally. In Bichali the Tungabhadra riverís soothing sound I feel Sri Harisarvottama Vayjeevottama and Bichali Sri Appanacharya Priya Mantralaya Sri Raghavendrateertha Gurubhyo Namaha. The Holy Madhwarayara Gundu and Sannyasikatti where Rayaru used to sit meditate and ponder the rich philosophy of Sri Anandateertharu and chat with Bichali Sri Appanacharya are in the Sacred flow of Tungabhadra like an island today and mark the glory of the past. Though Rayaru is in Brindavana in Mantralaya, even today at the holy Bichali Japadakatti, the house of Sri Appanacharya many Devotees have witnessed the Sanchaara of Gururaya in Jyoti Roopa. we are grateful and proud to have all this rich heritage and divine legacy. Japadakatti Ek Shila Brindavana is too adjacent to the river, Tungamma is allowing the devotees to take the holy dip. The immense silence and the profound calmness is welcoming the world devotees without any prachaara. The Sober, Satvika Sajjana Vamshashtharu of Sri Appanacharya are describing in detail and advocating the Siddhi of Sri Sripadarajaru, Sri Vyasarayaru, Sri Jitamitrateertharu and Sri Raghavendrateertharu. Bichali Japadakatti Siddhi Kshetra Ė Saadhana of Sri Appanacharya a great devotee of Rayaru.
To propitiate Rayaru, to gain the Anugraha of Rayaru, the chanting andf pathana of Gurustotra of Appanacharya is most essential. Our Sondur Sri Krishnavadhootaru and Ibharamapuraís Sri Krishnacharya Ė Appa have shined by this Gurustotra:
By Gurustotra Pathana our life will be complete with all the requirements and desires will be fulfilled. Gurustotra is Sarvswa to the world devotees today. To attain the Affection Anugraha of Mantralaya Sri Raghavendrateertharu Appanacharyaís Gurustotra is the main source to all of us. The Ashtottara Shata Seva Samiti at Bichali is fulfilling the desires of the World devotees and devotees have believed that it is Kamadhenu.
Dear Devotees I wish to share the Miracle and the greatness of Ibharamapuraís Appa a great devotee of Mantralaya Mantralaya Rayaru. Once a Satvika Brahmin, Sri YogiNarayanacharya who was always with Appa performing the Seva of Appa desired to go for Teertha Yatra and visit the Holy Sanctums. As the desire grew he expressed his desire to Appa. Appa said we shall talk tomorrow regarding that and asked the YogiNarayanacharya to sleep in his room that too at his head side. He did the same.
That night he got a great dream. In
the dream he performed the Yatra as he desired and visited the Sanctums of Kasi,
Appaís shishya YogiNarayanacharya immediately began describing his Yatra in the dream as per his plan and enjoyed thoroughly as he has seen with his own eyes. Tears were rolling from his eyes with joy and happiness. That night the shishya brahmana YogiNarayanacharya of Appa slept with Appa and the sannidhaana of Appa simply made him to take the Yatra in his dream. Appa fulfilled his desire by the Blessings of Mantralaya Rayaru. When the shishya forgotten to describe some points Appa reminded him some points. In the dream only Narayanacharya concluded the Yatra Samaaradhana. Appaís Anugraha cannot be described my mere words.
Sri Guru Indireshankita has described this in Sri Krishnarya Kathamrutasara. It is great divine witness:
Yesu Dinadali Tanna Sevipa
Bhoosuranige Pelidanu Ninna Mana
Daaseyanu Pooraisuvenu YendenutaaseyanuTori
Byasarillade Hariya Dinadupa
Vaasadali Tiru Tirugi Swapnadi
Kasi Modalaada Yatre Maadisi Santoshapadisida
Appaís ability, capacity were all of Mantralaya Rayaruís Anugraha, Bichali Sri Appanacharyaís Gurustotraís Siddhi. With all this Ibharamapuraís Appa has rendered a great service to the devotees, residing on the bank of the sacred Tungabhadra. Mantralaya devotees are always gratitude to this great Chetana Ibharamapuraís Appa. It is heartening to know that Swamiraya of Kosigi(Koushika Kshetra), Sri Gurujagannathadasaru, who proclaimed to the world :
NAMBI KETTAVARILLAVO EE GURUGALA, a
great devotee of Mantralaya Rayaru was born by the Anugraha of Appa.
Sri Hariya Vaikuntha Lokadali
Bali Saaralu Beku
Yaava Reetiya Teertha Yatre
Dina Tanna Sevipa
Yogyate Mantralaya Rayara
