ಮೂವರು ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷಿಗಳು ಬರೆದ ಪ್ರತ್ಯೇಕ ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷ್ಯ – ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಕೇರಳದ ೩ ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷಿಗಳು ರಾಯರ ದರ್ಶನಾಕಾಂಕ್ಷಿಗಳಾಗಿ ಬಂದು “ನಾವು ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷ್ಯಶಾಸ್ತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಪರಿಣಿತರು.  ಜಾತಕ ಭಾಗದಲ್ಲಿ ನಮ್ಮ ಪಾಂಡಿತ್ಯವನ್ನು ತಮ್ಮ ಮುಂದೆ ಪ್ರದರ್ಶಿಸಲು ಅನುಮತಿ ನೀಡಬೇಕು ” ಎಂದು ಕೋರಿದರು.  ಶ್ರೀಗಳವರು ಸಮ್ಮತಿಸಿದರು.  ಅದರಂತೆ ಶ್ರೀಗಳ ಜಾತಕವನ್ನು ಆ ಮೂವರಿಗೂ ನೀಡಿದರು.  ಕೆಲವು ದಿನಗಳಾದ ಮೇಲೆ ಆ ಮೂವರೂ ತಾವು ಬರೆದಿರುವ ಜಾತಕಫಲಗಳನ್ನು ಶ್ರೀಗಳವರ ಮುಂದೆ ಸಮರ್ಪಿಸಿದರು.  ಆ ಮೂರೂ ಜಾತಕಗಳನ್ನೂ ಗುರುಗಳ ಮುಂದೆ ಓದಲಾಯಿತು.

  • ಒಬ್ಬ ಜ್ಯೋತಿಷಿ – ಶ್ರೀಗಳವರು ಶತಾಯುಷಿಗಳು
  • ಎರಡನೆಯವರು – ಶ್ರೀಗಳು ೩೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಕಾಲ ಉಜ್ವಲವಾಗಿ ಬೆಳಗುತ್ತಾರೆ
  • ಮೂರನೆವರು    – ಶ್ರೀಗಳು ೭೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಆಯುಷ್ಯವನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಈಗ ಎಲ್ಲರಿಗೂ ಅನುಮಾನ. ಏನಿದು ಒಬ್ಬೊಬ್ಬರೂ ಒಂದೊಂದು ಆಯಸ್ಸನ್ನು ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾರಲ್ಲಾ ಎಂದು ಗುರುಗಳನ್ನು ಕೇಳಿದಾಗ, ರಾಯರು ನುಡಿಯುತ್ತಾರೆ –  ಈ ಮೂರೂ ಜಾತಕಫಲಗಳೂ ಸರಿಯಾಗಿಯೇ ಇದೆ.  ಅಂದರೆ ಮೊದಲನೆಯವರ ಪ್ರಕಾರ ಆಯಸ್ಸು ಭೌತಿಕ ದೇಹದಿಂದ ೧೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳೂ ಎಂದೂ, ಮತ್ತು ಎರಡನೆಯವರ ಪ್ರಕಾರ ನಮ್ಮ ಗ್ರಂಥಗಳಿಗೆ (ಉಪದೇಶ, ಪಾಠ ಪ್ರವಚನ)ಸಂಬಂಧಿಸಿದ್ದು, ಗುರುಪರಂಪರೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಉಜ್ವಲವಾಗಿ ಮುಂದುವರಿಯುತ್ತ ನಂತರ ಕ್ಷೀಣಿಸುವುದು, ಎಂದೂ, ಇಷ್ಟಲ್ಲದೆ ಮೂರನೆಯವರ ಪ್ರಕಾರ ೭೦೦ ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಕಾಲ ವೃಂದಾವನದಲ್ಲಿ ವಿಶೇಷ ಸನ್ನಿಹಿತರಾಗಿದ್ದು ಲೋಕಕಲ್ಯಾಣವಾಗುವುದು.

Once 3 Jyothishees came from Kerala and pleaded Rayaru for showing their panditya in front of Rayaru about their Jyothishya jnaana, which Sreegalu agreed.  All the three were given the Jaathaka (horoscope) of Rayaru.  After a few days, the three returned and submitted their jaathaka phala to Sreegalu.  It reads as follows :
  • I Jyotishee  – Shreegalu is shataayushee
  • II Jyotishee – He will have 300 bright years
  • III Jyotishee- He will have 700 years of life span
Everyone was surprised at this three different versions of the same horoscope.  Rayaru smilingly replied –
All the three horoscopes are perfect.
  • As per the first his bouthika shareera will have 100 years;
  • As per the second – his granthas will have 300 years of life span – i.e., his upadeshamrutha, grantha, will shine for 300+ years and
  • As per the third – his vishesha sannidhana will be there for 700 years in the vrundavana, mruttika vrundavanas, etc., which is true even today.  He is kalpavruksha kaamadhenu for all.
Thus the jyothishya of Rayaru has been self defined by Rayaru.
