Sri Madhwa Navami – 16Feb16

Hare Srinivasa,


Today is a very auspicious day for us. Madhwa Navami is celebrated on Shukla Paksha Navami(9th day) of Magha maasa every year. It was on this day some 700 years ago, devotees witnessed a miracle in Sri Anantheshwara Temple, Udupi. When Jagadguru Sriman Madhwacharyaru was taking paata to his disciples, there was a sudden celestial pushpa vrushti happened from the skies and that covered Acharyaru fully. When the disciples cleared the flowers later, they found that Madhwaru is not seen and he has left for Upper Badari to be with Lord Sri Vedavyasa. Madhvacharyaru is still present even today in Northern Himalayas (Greater Badari) continuing his spiritual pursuit with Sri Vedavyasaru.

Let us listen to renowned Madhwa Scholar Sri A V Nagasampige‘s pravachana on Madhwa Siddhantha on this sacred day. Here are the links.

Madhwanama by Sri Sripadarajaru

One of the most popular works of Sripadarajaru is Madhvanama. This is a kannada poem extolling Vayu Devaru and his three incarnations. As the auspicious Madhwa Navami is fast approaching, let us spend some thoughts on this great work. It follows the structure of Shri Hari Vayustuthi and was composed by Sripadarajaru for the benefit of those who don’t know Sanskrit and/or are not allowed to recite the Vayustuthi. In this short but potent work Sripadarajaru has not only captured the essence of the Hari Vayustuthi but also embedded several key, and not so well known concepts, as well as incidents from Ramayana and Mahabharata.

One has to remember that Sripadarajaru was an amsha of Dhruva, an aparoksha gyani, a very great scholar and the vidya-guru of Sri Vyasarajaru. So, his description of Vayudevaru and his three incarnations is bound to be complete and flawless. He has infused this stotra with pristine bhakti and gyana. So, in terms of spiritual content and value, it is worthy of adoration and worship. The fact that another great aparoksha gyani – Sri Jagannatha Dasaru – has written the phala-stuti of this work is a testimony to its potence and greatness.

This Madhwa nama told by Sripadarajaru will destroy all sorrows, provide all types of happiness and well-being, and in addition, will show you Shripati Jagannatavittala and take you out of this well (or ocean) called samsara.

…….Sri Jagannatha Dasarau

Guru Sripadarajaru

SrIpadarajaru is revered by all Madhvas. His contributions to Dvaita, Haridasa Sahitya, and the then existing social and political circumstances were considerable. Sripadarajaru was one of the pillars of the haridasa movement. He popularized the practice of composing kannada devaranamas, steeped in bhakti. Some of his famous devaranamas are: “nI ittahange iruvEnO hariyE …”, “KangaLidyatako kAvEri rangana nODada..”, “bhUshanake bhUshana …”. His ankitha is “Ranga Viththala“.

The saint has his brindavana at a place called Narasimha Tirtha, about 1.5 km from Mulbagilu, on NH4 (old Bangalore-Madras highway). It is said, when he was at his old age, he wanted to have Ganga-snana and could not go so far. Then Ganga appeared before him and said that she would come to narasimha tirtha and stay there forever. Sripadaraja’s devotees were extremely happy to have gangasnana without much effort. From that time onwards, taking a bath in narasimha tIrtha is equivalent to having a bath in the ganga.
