Guru Gunasthavana (Part 23)

The place is Madurai,the ruler tirumalai naicker and the minister is a great scholar Neelakanta dikshitar. Sri Rayaru in the course of his divine sojourn comes to Madurai where Neelakant dikshitar is highly impressed by theBhaatta Sangraha on Mimamsa and he places the work on an elephant and takes it in a big procession throughout the streets of Madurai.  Sri Vadindraru wonderfully completes by opining “the fame of Your Holiness also spread all over the eight directions like how the glory of the book is spread”.

He is like the sun in removing the darkness of propagation of untruth; He is like the moon in causing the flowering up of the devotees of Sri Vishnu; He is merciful to the greatest extent. I bow to Sri Guru Raghavendra.
Poojyaaya raghaveandraaya satyadharmaratayacha Bhajataam kalpavrukshaaya namataam kaamadheanuvea ||
I bow to Sri Raghavendra Swamy of the following reputation:Revered; he guides us in the straight path of truth and good conduct; He fulfils the prayers of devotees completely just like the divine tree (kalpavrisksha) and the holy cow (kamadenu).
Mookopi yathprasadena |Mukunda Shayanaayathe || Raja raajayathe riktho |Raghavendram tamaashraye ||
With whose blessings even a dumb can speak as eloquently as Sri Adi Sesha(Thousand Headed Serpent on which Lord Sri Vishnu rests) and with whose blessings a pauper turns into a rich, to them, Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamygalu, I’m surrendering my self !!!
