“Satya” – It is from him only that the prefix for Uttaradimutt Seers, “Satya” has started. Earlier to him there was no such practice of putting Satya as prefix.
Mutton converted into flowers and fruits – Once during his visit to Hyderabad, Abdul Qutab Shah of Golkonda wanted to test the spiritual power of the swamiji. He brought some meat in a vessel and did the samarpane to swamiji. When Swamiji sprinkled theertha on the vessel the contains turned flowers and fruits and begged the seer’s pardon with sashtanga namaskara for having tested the mighty power of theertha by the swamiji.
Sri Satyavratha Tirtharu like Rayaru and Vadirajaru entered the brindavana alive.
It is said that after brindavna pravesha of Sri Satyavratharu, once Sri Satyasandha Teertharu visited sangli, after performing pooja he started Srimannyaya sudha anuvadha. After completion of Sudha anuvada, everyone witnessed shaking of Vrindavana from left to right as if Sri Satya Vratharu was appreciating Sri Satya Sandharu. This was also witnessed by the King of Sangli which he recorded in his royal diary.
