Guru Gunasthavana (Part 7) -By Dr. B. Basker
Namaskara to all Haribhakthaas,
grantho vadavali dragabhajata vidito durmataranyadahat
tasya sriraghavendravrativara bhavato vayuvamsaprasute
retarhyuddhipanam yattaducitamitti me manasi vrttirindhe || 17
Sri Teekaakritpaadaru(Sri Jayatheertharu) had written a work called vaadavaali to help to remove the ignorance and the gloss by Sri Rayaru highlighted it more.If the first two letters of vadavali are interchanged it becomes daavaavali or forest fire which destroys ignorance . Indeed this work of Your Holiness is burning brightly in my heart always like the brilliance of a forest fire- thus opined Sri Vadeendra Theertha sripadaru.
tejaste raghavendra vrativara kimiti srimato varnayamah |
yenaisa candrika pi tribhuvanavisada satpathodancitasrih
lebhe sarvajnamauliprakatitavibhava tvatta eva prakasam || 18
This shloka highlights the greatness of Prakasha(tippani of Sri Rayaru on the work Tatparya Chandrika of Sri Vyasrajaru).Can there be any doubt that the Prakasha(light) of Chandrika(moonlight) will dispel the darkness of ignorance of devotees. Sri Raghavendra Guru Sarvabhauma ! The moon which is flawless spreads its light all over the world so also Chandrika Prakaasha too gives light of knowledge to saadhu jana samuha.
Sri Vadindraru says he is at loss of words to describe the greatness of such a saint!!
Om Sri Raghavendraya Namaha!!
Yours in the service of Sri Harih,
Venkatesh Rajendra Rao
