Udupi Yaatra of Ibharamapura's Appa, miracle, Vaak Siddhi and how Appa faced the person of Kali pravesha are described here here.
Ibharamapura's Appa along with Yogi Narayanacharya had been to Udupi to take the darshana of the famous Lord Krishna installed by our great Sri Madhwacharyaru. Appa was neithr a yati nor a dasa but was welcomed by the Ashta Mutts with all grandeur and honour. Appa felt happy and said that it is all of Mantralaya Rayaru. Appa's memory went back and remembered the days of Madhya Gaeha Sri Vasudeva - Sri Madacharya - Vrushbhapooi Arjuna and Sri Malkheda Jayarayaru. Ibharamapura's chetana throbbed to visit the sacred Paajaka Kshetra, the birth place of our Sri Sri Madacharyaru. When Appa went to Paajaka, cholera was wide spread and the residents have simply vacated and taken shelter at the Durga hill (Durga Betta). So Appa after visiting Paajaka straight came to Durgabetta to stay there like others.
The old satvika
couple Sri Venkateshadasaru and his wife Timmavva were there. They have come from
Timmavva told to Appa that her husband Venkatashadasa is al;ready pretty old with seventy years, more over he is now ill. Appa said soon he will be healthy and you will get a son. As per the wordings of Ibhartamapura's Appa before the completion of the seventy years they got a son and named him as Venkarasubbadasaru and again after two years at the age of seventy two Venkaradasaru and Timmavva got a daughter and named her as Laxmi. Dear devotees please note how the wordings of Appa have become true. That much of Vaaksiddhi Appa had in his life owing to his divine power by pooja and pathana. This Venkatasubbadasru was none but the father of Sri Beluru Keshavadasaru the author of the famous book: KARANTAKA BHAKTA VIJAYA.
See from where to where we are knowing all these sacred and noble things which are in chains and continued even to this day.
Old roots and new leaves will give a beautiful look to the tree. Appa a strong devotee of Rayaru who had seen and understood the heart of Rayaru. Appa has described that:
Rayara Darushana Jeevana Paavana
Rayara Mahime Kele Paapa Naashana
Rayara Naama Japisalu Illa Dukhkha
Rayara Bhakta Yendu Heluvage
Muktiyadu Sulabha Sopaana
Tungabhadra Nadi Namagiralu!
Appa always said this and with satisfaction and contentment walked in Mantralaya and Ibharamapura became very popular in wiping the tears of the common devotees, has done the maximum good things to them through the miracles and became very near and dear to Mantralaya Prabhu. Ibharamapura had that much of devotion towards Mantralaya, Tungabhadra and the Anugrha of Sri Raghavendraswami.
When the Mantralaya devotee has attained that much of perfection and siddhi, it is not wise and sane to speak ill about him and insult him. That shows their ability and mean mentality. Ill words in the sense there are people who speak good words and praise in front and at the back they will simply tease and speak bad. For such people we have to say that KALIPRAVESHA, it means they are digging their own grave, enhancing their papas.
Once such a thing happened to Ibharamapura's Krishnacharya Krishnarya Appa. Appa was the Triveni Sangama of Mantralaya-Bichali and Gaanadhaalu, that is why we found so much of Siddhi in Appa. Appa was going to a near by village along with Yogi Narayanacharya. One tall black wicked person met on the way. By seeing Appa with great anger abusing Appa raised his hands to beat. But Appa did not afraid. He was highly courageous, Appa stood like Veera Anjaneya and in return raised his hands. The raised hands of the wicked person cannot come down nor to move further. Appa described to Yogi, look Yogi Kali has entered in his body and persuading him to attain papa by hurting the divine satvikas. So here now at this juncture I sincerely appeal to the world devotees that Mantralaya Rayara devotees are not ordinary, they are owning high caliber of devotion and sanctity, we must behave properly, respect and regard them and there by our Punya is increased and we attain the Blessings of Mantralaya Rayaru and the affection of Bichali devotee Sri Appanacharya.
So with bhakti we have to pronounce :
Bhikshaalaya Bichali Sri Appanacharya Priya
Mantralaya Sri Raghavendrateertha Gurubhyo Namaha.
Aparokshagnyani Hari Bhakta
Gandu Maguvina Hesaru
VenkataSubbadasaru Yendu Magala Hesaru Laxmi Yendoo
Ee Reeti Vaak
