Date : Feb 21 2008

 

Background

In Gadag (Karnataka ≠ India),Ibharamapuraís Appa blessed the Kulkarni family and the Mujumdar family and the way in which Appa upheld the Sacred Sri Harisarvottama and Sri Vayujeevottama are described here

Meaning

The Mruttika Brindavana of Sri Raghavendrateertharu was completely sculptured by Sri Yogi Narayancharya, a great devotee Sri Veera Narayana of Gadag with utmost devotion and sanctity. Ibharamapuraís Appa declared open with his holy hands. In Gadag when a function Samaaradhane was going on in the sixteenth century. At that time Gadag resident shanubhaog of Koliwad by name Narayanappa was participating in the Anasantarpana and was serving  the drinking water to the devotees who were about to take their meals. A petty quarrel was going on to get the big leaves for the meals. A senior man said why do you unnecessarily quarrel for the big leaves, I must own the big kingdom saying this Duryodhana made quarrel and ultimately dug his own grave by himself. So do not aspire for big. Yogaayoga chiranjeevi Ashwathamacharya was also sitting there. When Ashwathamacharya heard the insult of Duryodhana Ashwathamacharya could not tolerate, he did not sit for the meals simply left the place went away. Narayanappa witnessed the whole thing and had heard that when there is a big gathering, when someone speaks ill of Duryodhana Ashwathamacharya will not tolerate. So Narayanappa followed  and said that you are none but Ashwathamacharya, I wish to write Mahabharata, so bless me he told. Ashwathamacharya Blessed Narayanappa. Wrote  the book of all times Gadugina BharataKumaravyasa Bharata.Became a bestowed poet varakavi.

In the same way Appa was also blessed by chiranjeevi Sri Ashwathamacharya and Rayaru was highly pleased and always sannihita in Appa. Gadagís Mruttika Brindavanaís Mahima resembled to Mantralaya and Appa paid frequent visits to Gadag and acquainted with all the satvikas and the sajjanas. Yogi Narayanacharya a true follower of Appa was always with Appa and the residents experienced the siddhi of Appa. Once a relative of Mujumdar was taken into custody and was imprisoned by the then British Govt. On some charges and allegations and was about to receive death sentence and to be hanged. The kith and kin came weeping. Surrendered to Appa. Appa said do not worry. Sri Hari is there to protect you. From tomorrow daily perform the seva of Sri VeeraNarayana with devotion for seven days, so that Bheemappa will be released from the jail safely. Mujamdar relatives started the seva of Sri Veera Narayana with Bhakti as per the wordings of Appa, On the sixth day of the seva Bheemappa was released safely and sent home.

Here Ibharamapuraís Appa has upheld the Harisarvottama in this way and the siddhi of Sri Veera Narayana showed to the whole world. As already said in Geeta:

Ananyaadchintayamascha Yogakshemam Vahaamyaham.

Here we are surprised to see the vaak siddhi of Appa. The affection of Pavamaana Jagadapraana:

TungambodhiTarangasyaVaataenaParishobhitae.

Appa the real Harikaara of the sanctity of Tungabnhadra. Appa was not a pontiff and never said himself a santa any where. Leading a worldly life lead the people on the path of divine progrees and struggled more than a pontiff and a sadhu santa by the Anugraha of Mantralaya Rayaru and Panchamukhi Praanadevaru.

The Mujumdar family and the Kulkarni family of Gadag became very dear and near and close to Appa. A devotee has presented some kilograms of silver. Appa made his own idols and was presenting to his dears to worship. Mujumdar also received such an idol by Appa. The idolís ear was curved and they handed it to the goldsmith to make straight. When the goldsmith touched the ear for rubbing through his instrument, blood came out from the ear. Goldsmith was afraid and simply returned the idol. When Appa came to Gadag, the Mujumdars detailed the whole thing. Appa said the things which I have given to you by my hand, I will always be sannihita, i.e my presence will be there. Here we are amazed to see the siddhi, miracle of Appa.

Devotees  uddhaara was the main motto of Appa. Lived by the side of Mantralaya, Bichali,Gaanadhaalu with pure heart and mind.Experienced the sanctity of the flow of Tungabhadra, the lullaby of:
 
Om Sri Raghavendraaya Namaha
Bichali Sri Appanacharya priya Mantralaya
Sri Raghavendrateertha Gurubhyo Namaha.

The great Ibharamapura chetana through out his life attained the siddhi of Panchamukhi,Chakrateerha Hanuman of Hampi.

Vaasinam Chakrateerthasya Dakshinastha Girow Sadaa
TungambodhiTarangasyaVaataenaParishobhitae

Ibharamapura Krishnarya Appa a great devotee of Mantralaya Rayaru regularly took the Darshana of Rayaru. Suppose one day Appa is not coming, Rayaru himself will go to Appa to see him. Devotees we are happy to see Appaís status in the list of devotees. what a great devotee!
