Achyuthananta Govindanemba Video

Achyutha Anantha Govida are three powerful names of Lord Vishnu. We have all heard chanting these three powerful names will cure diseases, provides mental health as well.

I remember seeing so many messages during the Covid Pandemic to recite this Mantra. Om Achyuthaya Namaha Om Ananthaya Namaha Om Govidaya Namaha. I was also told to recite this or even write this in a book 108 times when my Mom was sick and keep it under the pillow of the sick person.

As I was browsing my shelf filled with religious books, I once again caught hold of the book called “Shree Purandara Dasaru Keerthanegalu” which has literally 1000’s of songs written by Shree Purandara Dasaru.

I searched online and didn’t find any tune or even the lyrics. So I created my own tune.

I will share the lyrics in Kannada and English soon.

Shree Jaya Theertaru Brindavana in my Dream

Like you all know and have read a million times in my blog, what I am today is because of what I have been taught by my Parents. My bhakthi my devotion towards God cannot be explained in words. Every time I perform Mangalaruthi after any pooje, I recite the slokas taught by my Father in the order and taratamya. One of the slokas is :

ಚಿತ್ರೈ: ಪದೈಶ್ಚ ಗಂಭೀರೈರ್ವಾಕ್ಯೈರ್ಮಾನೈರಖಂಡಿತೈ: |

ಗುರುಭಾವಂ ವ್ಯಂಜಯಂತೀ ಭಾತಿ ಶ್ರೀಜಯತೀರ್ಥವಾಕ್ ||

चित्रैh पदैश्व गंभीरैh वाक्यैर्मानैरखंडितैh ।  

गुरुभावं व्यंजयंति भाति श्रीजयतीर्थ वाक् 

Chhitrai: Padaiśca gambhīrairvākyairmānairakhaṇḍitai: |
Gurubhāvaṁ vyan̄jayantī bhāti śrījayatīrthavāk ||

It is a hymn written by Sri Vyasarajaru in Nyayamruta, which explains all the books, shastras, tippanis Shree Jayatheertaru has written as words full of gambheerya. Each word has immense meaning.  There is no way you can condemn his words since for each he has given pratyaksha pramanas. 

As I was doing Mangalaruthi, for a fraction of a second I thought we have idols and pictures of all Gods and Gurugalu. I don’t have one of Shree Jayatheertaru. I continued with the pooje, and completely forgot about it.

Today early morning, I am in Malkhed, standing n front of a huge brindavana. I am taking pictures and saying this Brindavana is awesome, I am going to post a picture of this in my blog. The brindavana had no decoration at all. Completely stone, bright and quite big. It was 6 AM in the morning. I woke up with a jolt, thinking it was Rayaru brindavana, to be honest other than reciting Shree Raghavendraya Namaha almost every minute of my life, I have not thought constantly of Shree Jayatheertaru other than that one second sloka while doing Mangalurthi. And I had never even thought about Malkhed.

The image in my dream like I said had no alankara.

After I finished my pooje, I turned on the laptop to see the images on the internet, and the brindavana I saw in the dream is exactly the brindavana of Shree Jayatheertaru in Malkhed.

I am just stunned by this dream. I feel so blessed. There must be something I am doing right in my pooje, that I was truly blessed to see the brindavana.

I definitely wanted to share this with you all.

Hopefully soon, I will post the conversation I had with my Father about Shree Jayatheertaru and his legacy.
