The great noble propagation of Sri Harisarvottam Vayujeevottama and the aparokshagnyana of Ibharamapuraís Appa are described here
As per the wordings of our Sri Madhwacharyaru: Harisarvottama sarvadaa pratipaadaya: always go on propagating and establishing the greatness of Sri Hari. Ibharamapura Sri Krishnarya always gave top priority and traveled through out the length and the breadth of our country. Never tired and never cared for his health. Simply riding the horse along with Yogi Narayanacharya a true follower and beloved shishya of Appa. Ibharamapura Krishnarya knew clearly that in the Mantralaya Rayara Brindavana all the sacred sannidhana of Gods and Yatis are present and proclaimed that Mantralaya is more than Kasi and Badari. Owing to the sannidhana of Sri Hari and Rudradevaru. So Appa constructed a house in Mantralaya and often started residing. Once a devotee who was blessed by Appa decided to offer something and requested Appa to accept. Then Appa asked him to give the wooden logs and said him write the name of Appa and simply leave them floating in the Tungabhadra river, they will reach me. They reached as per the Appaís wordings.
Even to this day the vamshastharu of Appa are residing in that house in Mantralaya. Appa daily moving from Mantralaya to Ibharamapura in the interest of the devotees.We are simply amazed to look to this great devotee of Mantralaya Rayaru. Where ever there are seminars, Vidwadgoshthi, Madhwa Prachara Appa was the first person to attend. Once in Bangalore Ibharamapura Chetana was the chair person . A huge gathering was arranged. Ittige Raghunatha Rao came there simply his eyes looked here and there searching and was attracted by Appa and a great bliss touched to his heart. Ittige Raghunatha Rao who was residing in siddhi katte was always engaged in sachchastra and Sadachaara of our Sri Sri Madacharya. Ragunatharao was in search of an able teacher, Guru, guide and philosopher. Amidst the thick gathering Appa gazed at him and with great affection said you are in search of a guru, lease come here.By hearing these words Ittige Raghunathrao could not speak out anything more! The abundant throbbing of feelings in Ittige Appa grasped at the first sight and blessed whole heartedly.Mere darshana of Appa cheered Ittige and respect and regard grew towards Appa enormously. Decided that Appa will shower the blessings and Uddhaara is definite. After the function Appa talked to Ittige and advised the real values and gist of Madhwa siddhanta. You were in search of mine since a long time. Now the time is ripe.Mantralaya Rayaru has informed about your arrival. I am pleased and happy. Have the food with me here only. After the meals Appa offered taamboola to Raghunatharao which Appa has to eat after the food. Handing over the taamboola Appa asked Raghunatharao to worship the taamboola for a period of forty days with great devotion and blessed putting his sacred hands ≠ amruta hasta on the head of Raghunatharao. By this mere touch of Appa Raghunatharao experienced a sort of divine power that cannot be described in words. Now Ittige became a gnyani,bhakta,satpurusha owing to the sannidhana sparsha of Appa.
Worshipped as per the wordings of Appa. After the forty days Ittige opened the sampushta to see the taamboola. To his great surprise taamboola turned into a beautiful Maruti Vigraha, the Aaraadhya Daiva of Appa. By this miracle the sanctity, siddhi of Panchamukhi Praanadevaru was known to the whole world. The style of functioning of Vayujeevottama and Harisarvottama by Appa cannot be excelled by others.Took pains and struggled till his last breath for the noble cause of Vidwadgoshthi,chintana,manthana, japa and tapa. Mantralaya made his head office though Appa stayed in Ibharamapura.All these miracles were all by Rayaru as Rayaru was always present in his as per the wordings of Sri Ashwathamacharya.
When we just go through all this we really remember the sacred lines of Gurustotra of Bichali Sri Appanacharya :
Shreeshaha Lord of Laksmidevi Sri Hari bestowed our Mantralaya Gururaya as Gnyani and Aparokshagnyani. Always smiling with the contentment is not preoccupied by anything. Liberally gives,fulfills all the desires of His devotees. In the world rarely we see such pious saints,Yatiraats. Among them Rayaru is always on the top of the list.
