(Sri Ramachandrateertharu and
Date : Oct 09
Sri Ramachandrateertharu found Sri Raghunathabhattaru
and named as Sri Vibudhendrateertharu made him as his successor, sent Sri
Vibudhendrateertharu for Digvijaya to Varnasi and joined the lotus
feet of Sri Hari, entered the Brindavana in Yergol, and the
return of Sri Vibudhendrateertharu to yergol are described in
Mantralaya(147)-Sri Vijayeendra Vaibhava(2).
Sri Ramachandrateertharu the sacred Yativarya
residing in Yergol, owing to the old age and unstable health condition
was always thinking about the new successor. Sri Vageeshateertharu his
Guru entrusted him this noble task and Sri Ramachandrateertharu desired
to hand over the same to the safe hands. He found an able, sober, wise
and well read Sri Hari Bhakta Sri Raghunathabhattaru, felt happy,
satisfied and made him as his successor-uttaradhikari, and named as
Sri Vibudhendrateertharu. In those days much debate was in progress regarding
the dwaita and the adwaita. So the Pontiffs-Yatis faced a tough task in
selecting their successors-uttaradhikaris.
Sri Vibudhendrateertharu the eleventh
Pontiff of Sri Madacharya Peetha again took Janma as Sri Vishnuteertharu
and became the Fifteenth Pontiff as Sri Vijayeendrateertharu, will be described
in the next series. A highly cultured, divine personality, sharp knowledge
made Sri Ramachandrateertharu - simply to accept-so named as Sri Vibudhendrateertharu
appropriately ,lived up to his name in our Sri Madacharya Parampara. We
are grateful to Sri Ramachandrateertharu and Sri Vibudhendrateertharu.
As per the time and the tendency Sri
Ramachandrateertharu blessed Sri Vibudhendrateertharu and sent for dwaita
propagation to Kasi. The debate Vaada was not limited for a day or two.
It went on weeks together: Vaadae Vaadae Jaayatae Tatvabodhaha.
By debate only the real truth will be upheld.
Mean while Sri Ramachandrateertharu
became ill,sent a letter to Sri Vibudhendrateertharu to return from Kasi.
One day attained the lotus feet of Sri Hari.The Brindavana is in Yergol,
very near to the cave where Sri Jaiteertharu composed the Teekas(Commentaries)
for the works of Sri Madacharya in the presence of Sri Maruti - MarutaSaakshiga,
on the bank of the sacred tank of Yergol where Sri GANGA MAATA has blessed
Owing to the inadequate means of transport
facilities Sri Vibudhendrateertharu arrived Yergol late.Felt sad
to see his favourite GURU Sri Ramachandrateertharu is in Brindavana. Stayed
for a few days in Yergol and performed the seva to the Brindavana. Owing
to the Yati Dharma Sri Vibudhendrateertharu left Yergol for the propagation
of Sri Madacharya Tatvas.
Here we find that the Great Sri Madhwacharya-Sri
Madacharya Parampare was bifurcated and grew in two separate Mathas. Uttaradimatha
by Sri Vidyanidhiteertharu and Rayaramatha by Sri Vibudhendrateertharu.
Thus the noble task of propagation of our Acharya Philosophy gained impetus.The
Pooja of Sri Hari-Rama-Krishna continued with grandeur by all the Mathas
including the Ashta Mathas of Udupi.To be continued next series...
