Malkhed Jaiteertharu is the sixth pontiff of Sri Madacharya Peetha. Born in Mangalavedhe near Pandharapur situated in Maharashtra. Indramsha Arjuna-Vrashabhaavataari Dhondoraya born as son to Raghunath Deshpande and Sakhubai.Born with golden spoon,wealth,power and affection. Expert in horse riding, a courageous smart personality.
Being the son of a Deshpande a status-a regard and respect in the society.
Somehow as per the will and wish of Sri Hari and the habit of previous Janma (Vaasana of Vrashabharoopi Janma), sitting on the horse while crossing the Bheema river at Sandhyavali drank the water like Pashu, that is, Vrashabha: "KIM PASHUHU POORVA DEHE" uttered by Sri Akshobhyateertharu to Dhondoraya made a great metamorphosis in his life. Sri Akshobhyateertharu the Guru of Sri Jaiteertharu was not an ordinary pontiff,the fifth pontiff of Sri Madhwacharya Peetha was Rudramsha. So great,divine and stalwart was the Guru of our Teekaraya.Dhondoraya took sanyaasa and became SRI JAITEERTHARU.
Raghunath Deshpande got angry with Sri Akshobhyateertharu, took back his only son to his home.As Dhondoraya was married, his father arranged the first night of his son. To their surprise Dhondoraya took Shesha Roopa and everybody trembled with fear. The father Raghnath Deshpande came to know that his son is not an ordinary man.Born for great work,to upheld the great cause. So requested Dhondoraya to live as per his will and wish. Then cooled down to normalcy became Dhondoraya-Sri Jaiteertharu. Bestowed his father with a boon that they will have one more son, that he will look after the family and continue the Deshpande family.Thus our Great Sri Jaiteertharu won the kama feelings that too at his prime youth period.
