Date : Jan 17 2008

 

Background

The great Miracles of Ibharamapura Appa by the blessings of Sri Hari Vayu Guru Raghavendra of Mantralaya and the gratitude of the devotees are described here

Meaning

Ibharamapuraís Appa Aparokshagnyani, a great devotee of Mantralaya Rayaru who was highly enriched by the parayana of Sudha and Parimala, who always spent his life time in the holy realm of Mantralaya and Bhikshalaya ≠ Bichali has done maximum welfare to the Manukula, though he was not a Pontiff nor a Dasa. Living in this worldly life spread the spirituasl values and helped the devotees. Once a non Brahmin Satvika Basanagouda came to Appa after knowing the miracle of Nandavar Desai. Appa blessed him Mantrakshatae and asked him to tie in a yellow cloth and said that always it should be in your neck. After going home Basanagouda started wearing this always with great devotion to Appa. Soon the wife of Basanagouda became pregnant and gave birth to a male child. All were surprised to see this Miracle.

Basanagouda then met and expressed his desire that he wants to name the child as Krishnappagouda - the name of Ibharamapuraís Appa ≠ Krishna- Krishnarya ≠ Krishnacharya. Appa gladly permitted Basanagouda to name as Krishnappa and said that he will shine the name and the fame of the family. Krishnappa will hold a high position in the government and will do good things always in the interest of the Sajjanas. Appa was neither a Swami nor a Dasa, but a true follower of Sri Madacharyaís Sadaachaara and Sachchaastra. A staunch devotee of Mantralaya Rayaru just like our Bichali Sri Appanacharya. Became close near and dear to Sri Raghavendra Gurusarvabhoumaru, listened the devotees difficulties and solved by the grace of Rayaru. We today describe them as Miracles. Ibharamapyuraís Punya Chetana has enhanced the happiness of the sajjanas and satvikas. What a great Siddhi was in the Mantrakshatae given by Appa.

Dear devotees we are really surprised to know the sanctity of Mantrakshatae. Once a devotee received Mantrakshatae by Appa. He kept it in the brass box(sampushta) and went on worshipping daily. The devotee opened the sampushta after a few days. For his surprise the Mantrakshatae kept in the sampushta turned into Balakrishna. This news spread like a wild fire. Devotees rushed to Ibharamapura to receive the Mantrakshatae by Appa. Who so ever received after worshipping Mantrakshatae transformed into their Ishta Devata. Mantralaya Rayaruís Blessings and the Boon of Panchamukhi worked by Appa was the Anugraha of Sri Hari. What a Siddhi and Punya our Appa is having ! Living in this worldly life Appa fed the cream of Adhyatma to the satvikas through out his life.

Though Appa had this much of ability, never advertised nor did propaganda. Yogi Narayanacharya a close associate of Appa has written in Ibharamapuradheesha Stotramala about the Miracle of  Mantrakshatae:

MantrakshataSamayuktaeSamputaeYatkaraarchitae
Pratima AbhootahaArchakanamKvachitKaalantarenaVai

Indireshankita has said in Sri Krishnarya Kathamrutasaara that Appa was wearing an ornament to his ear. Once Appa gave it to a devotee. The devotee did not wear, but daily worshipped with great devotion, that ornament transformed inton a Saligraama. Appa blessed by Sri Ashwathamacharya, digested the siddhi of Manchali,Bichali and Gaandhalu. worship of Sri Panchamukhi Maruti and the holy paaraayana of Sudha and Parimala. With all this the mind ,heart and body always spreading the fragrance where ever Appa had gone. Sometimes Appa appeared in the dreams to his devotees, that room has experienced and spread the fragrance. Please see the lines of our Indireshankitaru:

KaliMalaapaharayenipa Gurugala
Poleva Gaatrada Muruvu Poojise
Kelavu Dina Poda Balikadu ThalaThalisutalee
CheluvaSaligraamavenisitu
Tiliyade Ivara UtkrushtaMahimeyu
Jalaruhekshana Taane Ballanu Ileyolachcharavu

Appa a great Aradhaka of Mantralaya Rayaru has upheld Sri Harisarvottama and Vayujeevottama and performed the Madhwa Sanchara in the best possible manner. Appa has done two noble things at a time.Propagation of Sadaachaara and welfare of the devotees. We are highly indebted to Ibharamapuraís Appa.
