Aradhana – Chaitra Krishna Ekadashi
Ashrama Gurugalu – Sri Satyapoorna Tirtharu
Poorvashrama Name – Baalacharyaru
He is from the pandurangi family
During his time Sri Sathya Poorna Tirtharu was the mathatipathi of UM.
He had given ashrama to Sri Sathya priya Teertharu who was touring north India for several years.
At that time Sri Sathya Poorna Tirtharu felt that his end is nearing but they could not locate Sri Sathya Priya Tirtharu.
Hence Sri Sathya Poorna Thirtharu came to Mannargudi in TN and initiated Sri Balacharya into Sanyasa and renamed him as Sri Sathya Vijaya Tirtharu with specific instructions that he should hand over the Samasthana to Sri Sathya Priya Tirtharu. After some time, Sri Sathya Poorna Tirtharu entered brindavan in Sangli. Even then Sri Sathya Priya Tirtharu did not turn up.
Sri Sathya Vijaya Tirtharu continued his tours during the course of which he came to Arani in TN. Arani at that time was being ruled by a Madhwa Maratta Brahmin by name Srinivasa Rao Saheb. The jahagir was received as a benefit for services rendered by ancestor Sri Vedoji Bhaskar Pant Chartapathi Shivaji Maharaj’s father. More details can be had about the Arani Jahagir from www.arnijagir.com .
One day after pooja and Tirtharu prasada they both started walking and when thay came to a spot they saw a five headed snake. When the Jagirdhar asked Sri Swami the significane, Srigalu explained that very soon he will have to shift his palace as there is a danger of an impending war between the Arcot Nawab and Hyderali.
After some time Sri Sathya Vijaya Tirtharu felt that his end was nearing and instructed the jagirdhar that the moment he is dead, he is to be carried and when they reach a place where the pall bearers can no more bear the weight , they have to bury him in that spot. Further he made the inventory of all the things with him and gave a copy to the Jagirdhar and one more to Sri SatyaPriya Tirtharu. Further the pooja box should be buried after his death and has to be unearthed only after Sri Sathya Priya Tirtharu comes back. Further he instructed that Sri Sathya Priya Tirtharu has to exchange his danda.
On Chaitra Krishna Ekadashi, Sri SathyaVijaya Tirtha passed away and as instructed they started carrying him. They came to a spot where they were unable to bear the weight. The Jagirdhar Srinivasa Rao Saheb was astonished because it was the very spot where they sighted the snake. He built the brindavana of Sri Sathya Vijaya Tirtharu and also shifted the palace there. He renamed the place as Sri Sathya Vijaya Nagaram in the memory of Swamiji. Even today you can see the Jahagir palace there.
Sri Sathyapriya Tirtharu came to Sathyavijaya Nagaram and was briefed by the Jagirdhar about the happenings. The Pooja box was taken out and given to Sri Sathya priyaru. All went on well until the Jagirdhar informed the swamiji that he has to exchange his danda. Now this created a peculiar problem. Sri Sathya Vijayaru was not his ashrama guru and it is a normal practice to receive the danda from the ashrama guru. Confused he started walking when he reached the Hanuman temple. The hanuman devaru here was consecrated by Sri Vyasarajaru ( it is another place where they are finding it very difficult to run the temple). The moment he reached the temple he was swarmed by monkeys. Just then he had the Vishwaroopa dashana of Sri Vayudevaru, who told him that Sri Sathya Vijaya Tirtharu was a great soul who followed his guru’s instructions without even appointing a successor and that he should exchange his danda and continue with his sanchara. Sri Sathya Priya Tirtharu did as told by Sri Vayu devaru and continued his sanchara and he entered brindavana in Manamadurai.
