IBHARAMAPURA APPA DARSHANA - 8

Date : Nov 13 2007

Background

The Miracles of Ibharamapuras Appa by the blessings Rayaru and the universal kind affection of Sri Ibharamapuras Appa are described in the series of Mantralaya(208)-Ibharamapura Darshana-8.

Meaning

As already described, the daily sacred routine of Ibharamapuras Appa was to go to Mantralaya have the Darshana of Sri Guru Raghavendra, meet the devotees who so ever had arrived. Mixed with all the devotees, some were Gnyanis, Pandits, Sajjanas and the Satvikas. All knew the ability and personality of Appavaru and all were giving due respects. Actually all the devotees used to touch the sacred feet of Appa and get the blessings of Appa. Though Appa was commanding abundant respect and honour he never felt that he is too great, always said that he is a devotee of devotees. This is all due to the divine saint of Mantralaya and will surrender everything with Samarpana Bhaava. Sri Haris boon to Rayaru helped Appa to do miracles through Mantralaya Rayaru. The Punya of Mantralaya Rayaru is growing abundantly though the Punya is being distributed liberally among the devotees.

Thus the Punya of Sri Raghavendrateertharu was gained by Appa. He looked like a big tree, giving shadow, shelter to the Satvikas who so ever requested. Ibharamapuras Appas stay in Mantralaya, interaction with the devotees has fully benefitted the Rayara devotees. He became one among them, listened and solved their problems. The wordings of Appa have always come true.Basically a pious, divine,  Aparokshagnyani and a great devotee of Rayaru who had attained the Sankalpa Siddhi. What ever Appa will say had become true, wordings never vained.

In Mantralaya there was a Satvika, Sajjana, Pandit by name Sri Ganeshacharya. Owing to the regular visit to Mantralaya, Sri Ganeshacharya regarded and respected Appa. Sri Ganeshacharya doing Saashtanga Namaskara to Appa. Appa said one day with smile: "Acharya today you are doing Namaskara to me, from tomorrow I have to do Namaskara to you". Sri Ganeshacharya did not understand the meaning and did not think seriously. That day  Sri Ganeshacharya received a telegram (in those days that was the fastest communication) from Nanjanagud Peethadhipati of Sri Rayara Mutt His Holiness Sri Sugnyanendrateertharu to come to Nanjanagud immediately. As per the telegram Sri Ganeshacharya reached Nanjanagud.

Sri Sugnyanendrateertharu owing to the oldage asked Sri Ganeshacharya to accept the Ashrama of Rayara Mutt. Sri Ganeshacharya was not of Goutama Gotra, nor the family of Rayaru, surprised to hear this from the Swamiji. Sri Supragnyanendrateertharu made him as his successor and named as Sri Sudharmendrateertharu. This Swamiji was believed as the Amsha of Sri Doorvaasa Rushi. Shined the name and the fame of Rayara Mutt. Attained the complete blessings of Sri Raghavendrateertharu. Sri Ganeshacharya after assuming the charge of the Mutt as the Pontiff Sri Sudharmendrateertharu came to Mantralaya. When Ibharamapuras Appa met Sri Sudharmendrateertharu,  Sri Sudharmendrateertharu honoured Appa and detailed that they have now understood the meaning of that days saying that "Sri Ganeshacharya you are doing Namaskara to me, but from tomorrow I have to do Namaskara to you." The wordings of Appa have always come true. There are about Sixty four Kalas of Siddhi, it is very clear that Appa has attained the SANKALPA SIDDHI, desired things are being done to him as well as to his devotees. Such a great Chetana Ibharamapuras Appa who has been Blessed by the Chiranjeevi  Ashwathamacharyaru the son of Sri Dronacharya, has fully attained the Anugraha of Panchamukhi Praana Devaru and Mantralaya Rayaru.

In those days there was a wide publicity that Ibharamapuras Appas wordings will become true, the news spread through out the country and even up to the ears of Mysore Maharaja. Maharaja of Mysore invited Appa to Mysore, people were simply in a big line to get the blessings of Appa. Bichali Sri Appanacharya Priya Mantralaya Rayaru is doing the Miracles by his devotees. There was a strong faith and belief among the devotees of Appa, that if they sprinkled the bathed water of Appa to their bodies, the horrible diseases like leprosy etc. have been cured. For this there was a line of devotees when he had been to Mysore. This is nothing but the pure bhakti of  Mantralaya Rayaru and the affection of Sri Hari.

It is quite heartening to know that the whole body of Ibharamapuras Appa was always giving the soothing fragrance. Many have asked what is the secret behind this? Appa said, no vaamachaara, no jugglery,only the Paaraayana Phala of "SRIMANNYAAYA SUDHA" of Malkheda Sri Jaiteertharu and the Paaraayana phala of Parimala of Mantralaya Rayaru.

In this way Ibharamapuras Appa has implanted a new ray of hope among the devotees, helped them always when they are in difficulties.

The Gurustotra of Bichali Sri Appanacharyaru :
"AgamyaMahimaLokaeRaghavendroMahaaYashaaha
SriMadhwaMataDugdhaabdhiChandrovatuSadaanaghaha" is perfectly true.
