The kind hospitality of Ibhatramapuraís Appavaru to the Devotees of Mantralaya and the Mircacle of Bichali ≠ Bhikshaalaya Sri Appanacharyaís Sri Raghavendra Gurustotra Pathana are now described.
Ibharamapuraís Appa a great kind soul, who has attained the complete affection of our Sri Gururaya of Mantralaya has taken care of the Devotees coming to Mantralaya. There were no adequate facilities in Mantralaya at that time. Ibharamapuraís Appa daily used to come to Mantralaya after taking Darshana of Rayaru Appa was inviting all the devotees to come to Ibharamapura and offered Anta Santarpana. The hospitality of Appa cannot be described in words. Several Dasas and Sajjanas used to gather and discuss about better things of literature, Sri HariSarvottama and Vayujeevottama. Here it is appropriate to say that Appa has not only made Anna Santarpana ≠ Anna Satra but also arranged Gnyana Santarpana ≠ Gnyana Satra. It is heartening to note that in Ibharamapura all the sacred profiles made available to the devotees by Appa.
Appa was an Aparokshagnyani.Once a cruel thief, disguised himself in a Brahmins dress and came for food and was sitting along with the Brahmins. Appa immediately came to know the truth by his first sight. Appa never allowed to sit and have the food and sent away. Some Satvikas astonished ! why our kind Appa has sent him away that too when he has about to start the meal. After words Appa told that he has killed several Brahmins and cows, a great rogue, so he never allowed. After a short while somebody came in search of this wicked fellow and detailed about him. All were surprised to know the Aparokshagnyana of Ibharamapuraís Appa. All this great things were not seen by Sri Obalacharya, the father of Appa. Appa loved his father too much and named his only sonís name as Obalacharya.
Now at this juncture I pray to all
the combined sanctity of Mantralaya, Bichali,Ibharamapura,Ganadhalu to
protect and bless the devotees of Mantralaya residing
in San-Diego situated on the bank of the
As per the wordings of Gita of Lord Sri Krishna Paramatma, Karmanyevaadhikaarastae Maa Phaleshu Kadaachina : the people in the USA work honestly for ten to twelve years and always busy in the Nationís work andbetterment.Mantralaya devotees are abundant here.Two young brothers, devotees of Mantralaya Rayaru residing in San-Diego, launched learn Sri Raghavendra Guru Stotra on the auspicious of 336th. Years Aradhana of Mantralaya Rayaru and introduced Bichali Sri Appanacharya to the world, through this media. In the Gurustotra Sri Appanacharya has said, that too at the time of Rayaru entering the Brindavana:
StotramDivyamidamSadaNahiBhavet Tasya AsukhamKinchana
Devotees who always believe and remember Rayaruís lotus feet and chant Gurustotra with devotion will never get ASUKHA ≠ Misery in life. By the Punya of Bichali Sri Appanacharyaís Gurustotra Pathana, all the houses of Rayara devotees are saved in San-Diego from the devastation and the disaster of wildfire which occurred there.When thick smoke and huge fire appeared swallowing the houses one after the other, the houses of Rayara devotees remained intact. This I believe and feel proud to say this is all the Miracle of Mantralaya Rayaru, how the most merciful saint Rayaru has taken care to save His devotees.The two brothers, devotees Seva and Pathana of Gurustotra yielded better fruits and the Anugraha of Rayaru gained completely in saving the houses of Rayara devotees in San-Diego.
I pray to Mantralaya Rayaru that you have chanted the Varuna Sukta on that day and transformed the Sandal Paste(Shrigandha) cool and soothing. So also today protect the citizens of San-Diego from the wildfire, chant Varunasukta ask the Agnideva to cool down and do not appear so wild in future and do not harm the life and the property. Mantralaya Gururaya and the great devotees, Ibharamapuraís Appa, Bichali Sri Appanacharya,Sri Sondur Krishnavadhoota, Sri Kosigi GurujagannathaDasa,Diwan Venkanna our divine Dasas kindly save the Manukula. Sri Harisarvottama Vayujeevottama philosophy is to help all the jeevas.
Of course we human beings have done several bad things, evils in our routine and normal life knowingly or unknowingly. Please excuse all those sins, committed not knowing the implications. Our Sri Krishnavadhootaru has said in Sri Raghavendra Tantra:
Paapeenaam Agraganyoham Dayaaloonaam Tvamaagraneehi
TvaamVinaa NahiGnyanenanyamMaam AdyaUddhaarakaranam
Kind Gururaya you are for Uddhaara, please favour us.
and got Amruta though there was Kaalakoota.
Such Mantralaya Devotees are really great, Dhanya Dhanya.
