Paata PravachanaHe started teaching his shisyas at his own house at Byagavata initially.    He was looking after the boarding and lodging facility of all his shisyas. ( Usually Brahmin is said to be “bada Brahmin”.  But it is not so in the case of Sri Jagannathadasaru. He was a bron rich Brahmin. ) Subsequently with the increase in the number of disciples, he shifted his teaching place to Manvi (Taluk Head Quarters).He was very well versed in Srimadacharyara Sarvamoola Granthas, Teekarayara Tippani Granthas, Vyasathraya and Sri Gururaja’s Parimala, etc Tippani.

  • Prarabdha Karma – Once Sri Vijayadasaru had come to his Manvi for Bhagavatha Mangala.  He had invited Sri Srinivasacharyaru for Theertha prasada.  At that time Sri Vijaya dasaru was a great scholar in HARIDASA KEERTHANE.    Unfortunately,  Sri Srinivasacharyaru had developed  an intense dislike for Haridaasas, who he felt, were misrepresenting Dvaita philosophy.  He was a great sanskrit and dvaita scholar before getting Daasa Deekshya. He had ego about his knowledge and disliked the Haridasas of that time.  He had thought that Kannada Devaranama had nothing jnaana about Srihari and is no way fetch moksha.  Sri   Vijayadasaru invited  Srinivasacharyaru to come for the theertha prasada and he  had accepted to attend the theerthaprasada and never turned up.  So, Vijayadasaru had sent his disciple to bring Srinivasacharyaru.  But Srinivasacharya refused to come saying he is suffering from Udarashoole (stomach problem).   After Srinivasacharyaru failed to turn up, Vijayadasaru had the theertha prasada. From that day, Srinivasa developed intense stomach problems which grew worse by the day, finally reaching unbearable proportions. Srinivasa went to Tirupathi, Ghatikaachala and Mantralaya, performing intense Seva to Thimmappa,  Narasimha Devaru, Vaayu Devaru and Sri Rayaru.  None of this helped in improving his health condition.  Day by day, his health grew bad to worse.   He even thought of commiting suicide.
  • Srinivasacharyaru became Jagannathadasaru – Sri Rayaru appeared in his dream and asked him to go to Sri Vijayadasaru.  He immediately rushed to Vijayadasaru, who in turn, re-directed him to go to Gopaladasaru, who is his swaroopa uddaraka.  Sri Gopaladasaru as per instructions of Vijaya Dasaru, donated 40 years of his Ayushya to Srinivasacharya. Deeply affected by the events in his recent past,  Srinivasacharya, decided to become a Haridaasa.   Sri Gopala daasaru gave him Haridaasa Deekshe and directed him to Pandarapur for ankitha. There Srinivasacharya,  found a stone bearing the words “Jagannatha Vittala”. From that day, he started composing devotional works with that ankitha. He became renowned as Jagannatha Daasaru.

ಮಲಗಿ ಪರಮಾದರದಿ ಪಾಡಲು |
ಕುಳಿತು ಕೇಳುವ | ಕುಳಿತು ಪಾಡಲು ನಿಲುವ |

ನಿಂತರೆ ನಲಿವ | ನಲಿದರೆ ಒಲಿವೆ |

ನಿಮಗೆಂಬ ಸುಲಭನೋ ಹರಿ|

ತನ್ನವರನರಘಳಿಗೆ ಬಿಟ್ಟಗಲನು |

ರಮಾಧವನೊಲಿಸಲರಿಯದೆ |

ಪಾಮರರು ಬಳಲುವರು ಭವದೊಳಗೆ

Summary of the devaranama – Srihari will be pleased with his bhajana in any manner.
If a bhakta praises Srihari with Bhakthi, even in his bed, Srihari will sit and hear him
If a bhakta praises Srihari with Bhakthi, even while sitting, Srihari will stand and listen to him
If the bhakta sings standing, Srihari will dance to his tune and listen to him
If the bhakta sings while dancing, Srihari will be completely with us and blesses us.
Ramapathi Srihari never leaves his bhaktas even for a fraction of time.
Some people failing to understand him will fall in samsara bandhana.

Even though the present devaranama says that Bhakta praising Srihari while in bed – it does not apply to all.   If you are healthy, capable you have to stand and with due respect only you have to praise him.  Bheeshmacharya as he was helpless in bed, praised Krishna paramathma – So Krishna did the anugraha to him sitting in front of him hearing Vishnu Sahasranama by him.  Similarly while sitting means – not only sitting but with druda bhakthi like that of Pundarika.  Prahladarajaru was standing while praising Narasimha – which he accepted by Dancing, etc.  There is no time restriction for doing the stotra of Srihari.
