Mantralaya-179

(Chakrateertha Yantroddhaara Praana Devara Stotra - 1)

Date : May 3 2007

Background

The grandeur and the sanctity of the Tungabhadra river and the great Pontiff Sri Vyasarajaru’s  Chakrateertha Yantroddhaara Praana Devara Stotra composed by Sri Vyuasarayaru are described to the devotees in Mantralaya(179).

Meaning

When ever I remember the forceful flow and the rhythmic sound of the sacred Tungabhadra, my memory goes back to sixty years ago and when I was too young .In those days devotees going to Mantralaya, if they reach Tungabhadra Station - now called as Mantralayam Road, during the night, we have to stay in the Chhatra of Sri Das Shamacharaya and early in the morning start journey to Mantralaya either by private motor service or by bullock carts. During the stay at night in the Chhatra we can clearly hear the flowing sound of Tungabhadra, a   sort of divine lullaby ( Daivika Jogula). It is to be experienced and not be described. We simply feel, how human being is too small before the nature and the nature’s gift. I have heard hours together, though I was too young.Really Tungabhdra from the sanctum of Hampi-Anegondi-Huligi crosses Bhikshaalaya reaches Mantralaya and further continued. It is the will and wish of Sri Hari to help the Satvikas and guide on the right path. The sanctity of Tungabhadra is the first phase of divine blessings we can say. Our great Yati   Prahlada-Bahleeka-Vyasaraya-Raghavendra are on this bank to glorify our life.Sri Vyasarajaru after The Holy Saakashaatkaara of Yantroddhaara PraanaDevaru,Mouneesha composed a beautiful Stotra comprising of  EIGHT Shlokas. Now I wish to describe the meaning   of the Sanskrit Shlokas of Sri Vyasarayaru about the divine VayuDevaru ­ Sri Yantroddhaara PraanaDevaru.

Beautiful composition has depicted the Personality of Sri HanumanthaDevaru by Sri Vyasarayaru.The Shlokas are the great contribution to the world by this extraordinary saint.
 

(1) The FIRST Shloka :

Namaami Dootam Ramasya Sukhadam Cha Suradrumam
Peena Vrattam Mahabaahum Sarva Shatru Nivaaranam

Sri Hanumantha Devaru is very close to Sri Rama Devaru, a devoted Bhakta and  a dedicated Aapta (intimate) Sevaka, and knew the very heart of Sri Ramachandra Devaru, Marutiraya bestows happiness in life and Anjaneya ­ PraanaDevaru-Maruti ­ Hanumantha is nothing but Kalpavraksha to the devotees, fulfilling all the desires what all they desire and pray. The strong round shaped shoulders ­ hands full of muscles of Maruti have destroyed the enemies and vanished their strength. A Foe to the enemies, like a lion’s dream to the elephant, A friendly protector to those who pray and surrender to Maruti. I here by do Namaskara to such a God, Hanumantha Devaru. A Sentence giving several meanings and descriptions are possible only to the divine Chetanas who are the embodiments of Pratibha (Imaginative) and Panditya.We express our heartfelt due respectful regards to Yatiraat Sri Vyasarayaru.
 

(2) The SECOND Shloka :

Naana Ratna Samaayuktam Kundaladi Viraajitam
Sarvadabheesta Daataaram Sadaam Vai Drudhamaahvayae

Marutiraya adorned with several precious ornaments including to the ear is always liberally giving the required things to the Sajjanas, whether it is smallor big ! We have believe strongly Our Sri Yantroddhaara PraanaDevaru and request the Lord to stay in our heart- Hrudaya Mandira. Praying to Lord Sri Hari Chanting the Beejakshara Mantras Sri Vyasarayaru created the Yantra ­ that YANTRA is nothing but the Hrudaya Mandira of Sri Vyasarayaru. Do not say that Sri Vyasarayaru arrested  Sri Vayu Devaru in the Yantra. Just to make it clear to the whole world that what an amount of divinity, ability  and capacity Sri Vyasarayaru had achieved as a Swamiji ! What an amount of concern Sri Vyasarayaru had towards the historical background on the bank of this Sacred Tungabhadra ! Always Sri VayuDevaru should be here to bless the devotees owing to the pure rememberance of Ramayana. Prayed Hanumantha Devaru to be always here - Sannihita at Chakrateertha at the holy forceful flow of Tungabhadra.This Shloka is the humble prayer of our Sri Vyasarayaru. Described the whole gist in the limited words, explore unlimited meaning.How Sri Vyasarayaru worked for the society is very clear by the Shlokas.Mere description is not sufficient, a Thesis can easily be undertaken on this Stotra of Sri Yantroddhaara PraanaDevaru of Sri Vyasarajaru.
 

(3) The THIRD Shloka :

Vaasinam Chakrateerthasya Dakshinastha Girow Sada
Tungambodhi Tarangasya Vaatena Parishibhitae

Sri Yantroddhaara HanumanthaDevaru residing towards the Souhern Hilly region of Chakrateertha at the Sanctum of Hampi. There the Tungabhadra flow of water waves are so high as of the ocean and always providing the cool soothing effect has enhanced our joy and devotion. At each and every moment the sanctum is increasing divine Panorama. We simply surrender to Swami Marutiraya’s Lotus feet  and Pray and take Shelter. Sri Yantroddhaara Swami is here to do the Uddhaara of all of us.The Divine Saint Sri Prahlada ­ Bahleeka ­ Vyasarayaru  Prayed Sri Hari, that  Sri VayuDevaru should always be here blessing the devotees of the world. The Stotra describes how our Swamiji is highly concerned  about all of us. Each and every  particle of Chakrateertha ­ Tungabhadra are of great importance and full of Sri Madacharya’s message is filled and the devotees should make the best use of this. This is the inner meaning of our Sri Vyasarayru in the Stotra.
