Raghvendra Vijaya Sandhi-2
It is strongly believed that Sri Rayaru
is the Avataara of Pralhadraja and Vyasaraja.
Sri Guru JagannathDasaru has described
the Prahlad Avataara in the second sandhi of SriRaghavendraVijaya.
Daityaas became too powerful and Hiranyakashyapu
was torturing all saadhus,brahmins and good people.Bhoodevi could not tolerate
the injustice of Hiranyakashyapu.She requested Brahma to save humanity
and Sanatana Dharma.Brahma prayed Vishnu and briefed the situation.In turn
Vishnu-SriHari asked Shankukarna(Vishwaksena) to take birth on Bhooloka
in the womb of Kayaadhu and Hiranyakashyapu and promised that the Lord
will always be with him.
One day the father Hiranyakashyapu
asked his son Prahlada what he has learnt so far?.Prahlada replied that
SriHari-Lord Vishnu is the omnipotent and omniscient.No one is equal to
Vishnu.Hiranyakashyapu became wild,as he could not tolerate the praise
of Vishnu and tried to kill his own son Prahlada.With the divine shelter
of SriHari poison became Amruta and all the evils proved good and favourable
Hiranyakashyapu asked Prahlada is
your Hari is in this pillar. Prahlada replied yes.Hiranyakashyapu broke
the pillar with his gada.SriHari came out of the pillar in NarasimhaAvataara,took
Hiranyakashyapu on his lap and torn the stomach with his nails and killed
Prahlada ruled with nobility and dharma.Never
hurted the feelings of anybody.
became Vyasarajaru and RaghavendrarRayaru.
