Swamy Parasara Bhattar reply to King Tribhuvana Devarayan

Swamy Parasara Bhattars Thirunakshatram ( Appearance day ) is celebrated today  08-06-2017  ( Vaikasi Anusham ) in a grand way all over the world.  Parasara bhattar  and Vedavysa  appeared  as divine twins in the month of Vaikasi in the star of Anusham to  Swamy Kurathazhwan and Andal as a blessing token of Aravani Prasadam of Namperumal.  The Divya Dampathis themselves acted as parents for Swamy  parasara bhattar, as he was born after his mother, Sri Andal, partook  “Prasadam” from the Sri Rangam temple .Swamy parasara bhattar was the  disciple of the genius Acharyar  Swamy  Embar and was graced by  JagathAcharyar swamy  Ramanujar from his childhood.

The whole srivaishnava community  glorifies Swamy Parasara Bhattar  for his unstinted  devotion  to Namperumal. (  Lord Sri Ranganathar of Srirangam ) .

Bhattar could never move away from Namperumal’s  radiance , and Lord Namperumal could also not bear separation from Bhattar. He was  so attached to Namperumal and Srirangam that he breathed the air of Srirangam and lived in the thoughts of Namperumal alone. Because of his profound unparallel Bakthi, Namperumal and Thayar adopted him as their  darling child. He was then called as  SriRengesa Prohitha.

Swamy was excellent in rendering discourses on Srivaishnava literature .

Many  devotees  flock to listen to swami with apt attention . One day, as usual, Bhattar’s discourse was going on. The local king named Tribuvana-devarAyan was also listening to Bhattar’s nectarine words mixed with intelligent thoughts.

The king was simply moved, and wanted to listen more from Swamy Parasara Bhattar. As he was a king and had to look after the welfare of his people, he could not devote time to attend the same .

So, he went with some pride to Bhattar and said “Swami – Do come to my Palace one day and give your discourses to me there. I shall give you a lot of priceless jewels and wealth”. Swami Bhattar simply looked at the King, smiled at him and said – “Have you ever worshipped Namperumal and had a look at his right hand.

raaaamaa

Do you know what it says?”. The king replied to Bhattar – “Yes, I have heard that it proclaims ‘ abhayam sarvabhoothEebyo dadaami’ (I shall safeguard you from all beings that may pose danger).” Bhattar interpreted that quote and said “Yes, it is giving protection to all. Hence, it is facing towards us.

But, one day, even though this will never happen, if it would turn backwards pretending that it could not protect us – even on that day I have no refuge other than Namperumal’s lotus feet ”.

The king was astonished at Bhattar swami’s strong faith with Lord Namperumal, and at the same time was ashamed of his attitude and ego. He left, but surely had learned a lesson.
Sri Parasara bhattar Thiruvadigale sharanam!!!!

Bhattar wrote as many as 18 literary works which are gems for our spiritual upliftment

    Hari Om! Adiyen! No doubt Parasara Bhattar proved to be the noblest son of Kooratalvan in all aspects. Neither Kuresar nor his son Parasara Bhattar lost anything by throwing away their wealth & possessions! When will the present youth learn such Golden Lessons? –
    Ramanuja Dasan!
    Jai Sriman Narayana!
