The environment of the temple town of Kumbhakonam on the bank of the sacred Kaveri river is proclaiming the greatness of this stalwart Yati Sri Vijayeendrateertharu to the whole world. My heart was throbbing from that day Rayaru asked me to share with the devotees about the character and personality of Sri Vijayeendraru of Kumbhakonam, the avataara of Sri Vibudhendrateertharu is clarified and explained by Aparoksha Gnyani Sri Vyasarajateertharu. Sri Madacharya Peetha was one one only till Sri Ramachandrateertha I desired to visit Yergol the Karyakshetra of Sri Ramachandrateertha the Guru of our Sri Vibudhendrateertharu.Yergol is situated in the Karnataka (India), Gulbarga district, very near to Yadgir about 17 kilometeres, amidst the abundant natural gift. Took the darshana of Sri Jaiteertharu Shesha roopa in the cave ,here only our Malkheda Sri Jaiteertharu composed the Teekas in the presence of Maruti (Maruta Saakshiga),performed Mangalarati with my own hands to PranaDevaru and Jayararayaru. The Archaka and the care taker Sri Dwaipaayanacharya gave Mantrakshatae as the blessings. Then I had the Darshana of Sri Ramachandrateerthara Brindavana and Sri Vidynidhiteerthara Brindavana with gratitude.
Remembering Sri Hari and always seeing through inward eye our Malkhed,Yergol,Kumbhakonam,Bhikshaalaya and Mantralaya started the writing of Sri Vijayeendra Vaibhava in Mantralaya Series. As I went on writing several holy divine details combined and enjoyed the affection of Sri Hari and surrendered to the panorama of the great saints. Sri Vibudhendrateertharu with the strong desire of performing the pooja of Sri Moola Rama took rebirth as Sri Vijayeendrateertharu. By the blessings of Sri Madacharya and Sri Jaiteertharu Sri Vijayeendrateertharu was always victorious in Vaada.It is the punya of the Madhwas-Satvikas to have such pontiffs.It is a matter of pride and honour to the devotees and the madhwa community that Sri Vijayeendrateertharu was the guru of Sri Sudheendrateertharu.
All these things to feel us most grateful.We devotees are really blessed by the divyanugraha of Mantralaya Sri Rayaru. Naishthika Brahmachari, expert in 64 kalas, winner in all the tests iscalled as the Bheeshma of Kaliyuga , Maruti and Malkhed Jayarayaru.The power of Japa-Tapa, Knowledge,Vairaagya, Wealth and grandeur have enriched the name and fame of Rayara Matha and glorified the philosophy of our acharya Harisarvottama and Vayujeevottama to the whole world:
Bhaktaanam Maanasaambhoja Bhaanavae
Kamadhenuvae Namataam Kalpa Taruvae.
Sri Vijayeendraru is like a sun to the lotus, like Kalpavraksha and Kamadhenu. Lived for the complete 97 years and enjoyed the divine life in Siddhi and Saadhanae. Sri Vijayeendraru is in Brindavana in Kumbhakonam on the bank of the sacred Kaveri,protecting the devotees by miracles. The paramaguru of our Mantralaya Rayaru is dhanya-maanya.Every year Sri Vijayeendrara aaraadhana will be celebrated on a grand scale.Vijayeendra Puraskaara, Vijayeendra Prashasti are all arranged by Sri Sushameendrateertharu.The Mantralaya Rayara Matha is rendering the most noble service to the Manukula .
Thus I conclude Sri Vijayeendra Vaibhava with due regards and devotion to our Yati Sarvabhouma and Gurusarvabhouma
