We are lucky that Sri Vishnuteertharu hailed from Karnataka - Kannada and is the big asset of our Sri Madacharya.It is the punya of the Vishwamitra Gotra .The sacred Kaveri bank of the temple town Kumbhakonam achieved the importance by our Vishnuteertharu-Sri Vijayeendrateertharu. This Yativarya Sri Vijayeendraru will glorify the Rayara Matha in manifolds. Owing to the Aparoksha Gnyana Sri Vyasaraja Yativarya detailed the whole matter to Sri Surendrateertharu.
Sri Surendrateertharu felt extremely happy. With due respects asked Sri Vyasarajaru where is that boy of Nagalapura call Vishnuteertha, the next successor of our Sri Matha. At that time Vishnuteertharu was engaged in studies. Came out listening the call of Sri Vyasarajaru. Sri Vyasarajaru took the hand of Vishnuteertha and joined the hand of Surendrateertha and said that he is highly intelligent, extraordinary and well versed in all the kalas. For the pooja of Sri Moola Rama, Sri Vibudhendrateertharu is again born as Vishnuteertha and one cannot find such a rare ,divine, intellectual personality like Vishnuteertha. Owing to the will of Sri Hari all these days he was here in Hampi with us. From now onwards Vishnuteertha will be yours in your Sri Matha. Sri Vyasarajaru said to Sri Surendrateertharu and emotionally blessed the Nagalapura Shishya Vishnuteertharu. This historical event took place in the sacred Hampi. The devotees, sajjanas have really made punya to witness this sacred scene. Sri Surendrateertharu listening to all this forgot himself and was in the deep thinking of our sanaatana Sri Madacharya Loka.
In the mean time the gathered devotees were surprised to see that Sri Vyasarajaru did Saashtaanga Namaskara to his Shishya Sri Vishnuteertharu. You are my Guru ,great, I am your boy ! why are you doing all this ? Then Sri Vyasarajaru told that Vishnuteertha - you are Vijayeendrateertha-the Guru of Sri Sudheendrateertha. Sri Vibudhendrateertharu to perform the Pooja of Sri Moola Ramahas again born as Vishnuteertha-Vijayeendrateertharu. Sri Vibudhendrateertha’s successor Sri Jitamitraru will again born as Sri Sudheendrateertharu to perform the Pooja of Sri Moola Rama; and I Myself Vyasaraja will be born as Sri Raghavendrateertha. So you are my Guru’s Guru. So offered my regards. The Joy of the devotees cannot be described in words. When they came to know that Sri Vyasarajaru will again take birth as Sri Raghavendrateertharu that too from his mouth ( Sri Mukha), Sri Surendrateertharu, Sri Vishnuteertharu-Sri Vijayeendrateertharu, Sri Vyasarajaru and the sajjanas on the sacred bank Tungabhadra experienced a devotional touch of Mahadaanada and Brahmaanada. The offering of regards to Vishnuteertha by Sri Vyasarajaru is nothing but the punya of Sri Rayara Matha,Sri Hari’s Prerana and the greatness of Sri Moola Rama. The total accumulation of all this Value is Sri Vijayeendrateertharu and Sri Rayaru.
The divine Sri Vyasarajaru’s proclamation made every body to stun. Sri Vyasarajaru looked at the sky with complete involvement of yoga of Sri Hari. This is the divine fortune.The saadhana of life and sopaana to mukti-moksha. Though he was a sanyaasi-sarva sanga parityaagi Sri Vyasarajaru was reluctant to separate from his dear Vishnuteertha. Blessed whole heartedly, touched his head and the whole body affectionately and bade a farewell. In Hampi Sri Vyasarajaru stood looking till the Guru Shishyas Sri Surendrateertharu and Sri Vishnteertharu disappeared from his eye sight.
Sri Vishnuteertha frequently looked back like a calf trying to see the mother cow. With gratitude looked Hampi,the sacred Tungabvhadra river. Then followed his Guru Surendrateertha to the noble cause of our Sri Madacharya’s Sri Harisarvottama and Vayujeevottama. What an amount of great Punya our Sri Vishnuteertha-Sri Vijayeendrateertharu has acquired by Sri Hari.. To be continued next series...
