forms within the vicinity. Positioned on the front side of Rayaru's
Brindavana, Lord Sri Narashima Devaru vigilantly resides, safeguarding
against obstacles. Progressing clockwise, on Rayaru's right side, Lord
Sri Rama is present, granting success and fulfilling desires. On the
opposite side, at the back, Lord Sri Krishna graciously resides,

scholar, Sudha Pandit. He had a puzzling question on his mind and had
come to seek answers as he had debated for a few days. Sudha Pandit
stood near the left side of Sri Rayaru's shrine, deep in thought.
Sudha Pandit was lost in contemplation, Sri SushameendraTeertharu began
to perform the Pradakshina around Sri Rayaru's Brindavana. What Sudha
Pandit didn't realize was that Sri SushameendraTeertharu had noticed
his dilemma.When Sri SushameendraTeertharu reached the left side of Sri
Rayaru's Brindavana, SushameendraTeertharu paused and turned to Sudha
Pandit. With a calm and knowing expression, said, "Read SudhaParimala,
Pandit was utterly surprised because he hadn't spoken a word about his
question. Yet, it seemed as if the SushameendraTeertharu had somehow
understood what was bothering him. With great respect, Sudha Pandit

Unknown to everyone, Lord Sri Vedavyasaru, the revered sage dwelling in
that sacred place, had guided Sri SushameendraTeertharu to address the
questions that had been troubling Sudha Pandit.

found its answer. It demonstrated the profound and magical ways in
which the enlightened souls of Mantralaya bridged the gap between the
earthly and the divine, providing solace to those seeking guidance.
father, Sri Raghvendra Patwari, used to recount a profound incident
that illustrates the living presence of Sri Rayaru within his
Brindavana. Once, Sri Vijaya Dasaru, filled with unwavering devotion,
desired to offer Hastodaka to Sri Rayaru in Mantralaya. Standing in
close proximity to the Brindavana, Dasaru awaited this auspicious
moment. The cook, responsible for preparing the offering, brought the
Hastodaka, but Sri Vijaya Dasaru requested him to wait.
patiently waited for an extended period before finally presenting the
Hastodaka to Sri RaghavendraTeertharu. Later, after the midday meal,
the cook approached Dasaru and inquired, "Dasa Gurugale, why did you
make me wait for so long?" Sri Vijaya Dasaru responded with profound
insight, explaining that within the Brindavana, Sri Rayaru was engaged
in the worship of Moola Rama Devaru (the primary deity), and only after
this sacred ritual had been completed did he offer the Hastodaka. This
incident exemplifies the living presence and divine activities of Sri
Rayaru within his sacred abode.In the presence of Sri Rayara
Brindavana, Vijaya Dasaru experienced an overwhelming and divine surge
of positive energy. As Dasaru stood before the Brindavana, something
extraordinary unfolded. Instead of merely seeing the stone structure,
he beheld the divine manifestations of Sri Rama, Sri Narahari (Lord
Narasimha), Sri Krishna, and Vedavyasaru, accompanied by their entire
celestial families.In this sacred vision, Dasaru witnessed Sri Hanuman,
Bhima, and Madhwa Rayaru devoutly worshiping the Lords. He saw Brahma
and Shiva, along with their divine entourages, present and reverent.
Near them, Dasaru observed Jayateertharu immersed in the recitation of
Niya Sudha, the sacred hymn.Overwhelmed with devotional ecstasy, tears
of joy welled up in Sri Vijaya Dasaru's eyes, as he basked in the
divine splendor of this extraordinary sight.
