The Aparokshagnyana of Ibharamapuraís Appavaru and the Miracle of Mantralaya Rayaru in protecting Sri Ananda Dasaru of Surpur i.e. Kamaleshavithalankita are described here in the Series of Mantralaya(207) ≠ IbharamapuraDarshana-7.
The devotees of Mantralaya Rayaru are living with ease and comfort and leading a peaceful life amidst the fire and wind, a helping hand of Rayaru has played a great role in protecting to the believed devotees like a miracle. Those who believed are benefitted greatly. Those who do not believe the devotees of Rayaru and make fun of them have no life by making fun and neglecting the Siddhi of the devotees will simply loose their inherited Punya. To pronounce Rayaru ≠ Rayaru and to say Mantralaya ≠ Mantralaya one should have the Punya and the Grace of Rayaru. It is not possible for the others. Devotees like:
Bichali Sri Appanacharya
Sondur Sri Krishnavadhoota
Kosigi Sri Venkatagiriacharya Father of Sri
Yogi Narayanacharya and others
have spread the miracle of Mantralaya through the length and breadth of the country. So I appeal to one and all not to speak light and low about our devotees of Mantralaya Rayaru.Because Sri Hari himself has given a boon to Prahalada during Prahladaavatara that:
Tvaam Cha Maam Cha Smaran Kaale
Prahlada those Satvikas who remember first your name and then my name will definitely attain all the required things in life and ultimately Moksha at the end. So our Mantralaya Rayaru is really superb, so I am humbly appealing to all in the Mantralaya Series. Bichali Sri Appanacharya Priya Mantralaya Rayaru is protecting us always without our knowledge, as Sri Hari has protected Rayaru during Prahlada Avatara. With keen and care Rayaru is watching the acts of this whole world. Ibharamapuraís Appa a great Devotee, Sudha Pandita, Aparokshagnyani daily walked in Mantralaya and was in friendly contact with all the Yatris and the Devotees of Mantralaya. All knew fairly the ability of Appa. I wish to describe the Miracle of and the Aparokshagnyana of Ibharamapuraís Appa our dear devotees.
Once Sri AnandaDasaru of Surpur(Kamaleshavithalankita), a great Devotee of Sri Raghavendrateertharu who has composed abundant songs of Rayaru was in Ganadhaalu at the Sanctum of Sri Panchasmukhi Devaru for Anushthaana for several days. At once remembered that tomorrow is Shraavana Krishna Paksha Dwiteeya, the Aradhana of Sri Raghavendrateertharu. Came to cross the river Tungabhadra. But Tungabhadra was overflowing, full of spate. Asked the oarsman to go to Mantralaya. Owing to the spate and the force of the water the oars man refused for rowing the boat. Sri AnandaDasaru requested too much to the oarsman and somehow he has to reach Mantralaya without fail. After a lot of pressure the oarsman placed the boat into the river. After crossing a little with the rudder the water entered into the boat, though the oarsman struggled hard to .AnanadaDasaru decided that his end has come now, but the strong desire to participate in the Rayara Aradhana at Mantralaya cannot be reduced even at this critical juncture.
Closed the eyes and started the Pathana of Bichali Sri Appanacharyaís Sri Raghavendra Gurustotra:
Dhyaanaaaraadhan Mruttvilepana Mukhanekopachaaran Sada
As our Bichali Appanacharya has said in Gurustotra, heart,body and mind fully surrendered to Sri Raghavendrateertharu with intense firm devotion.
At that time two Brahmins wearing only Koupeena came crossing the river near the boat, tied a rope to the boat and again went on the other side of the to the boat, started pulling the boat Kamaleshavitrhalankitaru really surprised to see this. It appeared as though it is JALAPRALAYA. Safely they pulled the boat. The oarman was surprised to see the scene, offered gratitude to this kind act of the two Brahmins. Sri AnandaDasaru reached the bank of Mantralaya. Asked the two Brahmins, who are you? what are your names? I am really grateful to you, you have really saved our lives.
By hearing this, the two Brahmins
replied that my name is Raghappa, and the other one replied that his name is Vaadappa.
They both said happily that in Mantralaya Sri Ibharamapuraís Appa
and several Gnyanis have
gathered, so please go to Mutt immediately and soon disappeared. Surpur
AnandaDasaru soon thought that the two Brahmins are none but the Great Divine
Saints of Sri Mantralaya Sri Raghavendrateertharu and Sri
Vadeendrateertharu. What an amount of pains they have taken to save the life of
this Devotee. Tears rolled unknowingly, could not find the way due to tears,
some how came near the main door of the Mutt, Ibharampuraís Appa was there only, welcomed with smile,
Oh Dasare you have escaped by the danger of being drowned in Tungabhadra by the
Paramanugrha of Sri Raghavendrateertharu. Aparoksha Gnyani Ibharamapura’s
Appa knew the heart of Rayaru and fully
aware of all the activities of Rayaru as he was very near and dear like our
Bichali Sri Appanacharya.Appa has performed the Miracle by
Mruttika,Mantrakshatae by the Grace of Rayaru, fully Blessed by Rayaru. Appa
was a great source and a mediator between the Devotees and our Rayaru. The
total sum of all this is Sri Harisarvottama Vayujeevottama and the Paramanugrha
of Mantralaya Sri Raghavendra Gurusarvabhoumaru.
