Swamy Parasara Bhattar’s divine pastime…. Oh Yes , Adiyen would travel to Sri Vaikuntam and have the darsanam of Lord VaikuntanAthan to satisfy my curiosity …and If Lord VaikuntanAthan does not match up to my Lord Rangan’s glories …adiyen would return right back to Srirangam and continue to serve our Supreme Lord Rangan .

 Swamy Parasara Bhattar was the son of  the great Acharyar Swamy Koorathalwan.


Once Swami Parasara Bhattar was going to have darshan of Lord Ranganathar at Srirangam. He saw few mendicants singing in the street and seeking alms.

Their faces were glowing with joy .


Bhattar thought how fortunate these mendicants were who could have the prasada left over by the vaishnavas that was offered to the Supreme Lord .(Shesha Prasada) .

He thought that there cannot be anyone more blessed than these people who were just under the shelter of the Supreme Lord always … 

He instantly composed a sloka whose meaning goes like this ..


A man even if he becomes a King Emperor , is not contented .  Thinking of the momentary ephemeral joys and expecting  that it would be better to experience permanent joys , aspires to have an earthy body  even in heaven . Further , looking at the royal glories of Indira he wishes to take the position of Indira. ..

 On another side , Indira may aspire to take the position of  Parama Shivan and  ParamaShivan  may look at the position of Brahma , being the first person well versed in all vedas and creator of this world.

Brahma may think it would be better to leave this world and gain wisdom by being a mukthpurusha …

The Mukthapurusha may aspire to become Nityasoories in Srivaikuntam.

The Nityasurees would  aspire to better go to Srirangam and become a  mere alms seeker  at the entrance of  the Supreme Lord’s temple . They would imagine that mere sparsha of the offerings to LORD is  elixir (which have been offered to the Supreme Lord as shesha prasada .).



My LORD !!

how great was your affection to the meek seekers of your help .

You who with a mere thought are capable of creation , preservation and destruction of this thought , came running to the help of an elephant which in some corner of the vast  world sought your divine help when it was caught in the jaws of a crocodile .


 My Lord !!!  

After arriving in fractions of few seconds , you showered your affection , by holding  and gently patting the feet of the  fortunate elephant , feeling sorry for the injuries inflicted on the elephant and seeking apologies for the inability to help a devotee before the wounds were inflicted ….


One morning ,  Swamy  Parasara Bhattar was  reporting  to the temple to carry out  his duties as  Chief Priest  . A devotee  who  was some what  skeptical came out of the temple and informed Swamy Parasara Bhattar  silently  that a  stray dog  had entered into the  temple  and therefore a group of people were conducting Saanthi Homam and  Purification ceremonies  to purify the inner precincts . 


Swamy understood that the group had some personnel benefits in carrying out the ceremony .

Bhattar instantly composed a sloka and submitted under the lotus feet of Supreme Lord whose meaning ..


Oh , Supreme Lord  !!

A shanthi homam  is being performed under the pretext of a stray  dog  entering this holy shrine .

You know !! That event however did not happen .

Oh  Lord !!


What are You going to do now ?

…………….with this   lowest creature that  arrived into your holy shrine ..and sees you very often ?

What kind of purification  ceremony  are you going to get done to sanctify ?

That was the devotion of Bhattar for the  Supreme Lord  Ranganathar


 Once Bhattar was asked by one of his dear disciple , whether he would indeed like to go to Sri Vaikuntam .

Swamy  replied with  emotion ..

Definitely  ” Yes , I would travel  to Sri Vaikuntam and have the darsanam of  Lord  VaikuntanAthan  to satisfy my curiosity .

Adiyen would whether HE  is as opulent , gracious , enthralling and captivating as our Supreme Lord Ranganatha .


And If  Lord  VaikuntanAthan does not match up to my expectations  , I would  return right back to  Srirangam  by jumping from the sky and land here and continue to serve our Supreme Lord  Rangan .

Swamin …


Adiyen has no interest in the sastras  declaring that there is no return to this earth for one , who reaches Sri Vaikuntam ” .
