This is one of a real incident happened in the life of  His Holiness the 33rd Jeeyar of Ahobila Mutt .

One day ,  His Holiness  Jeeyar was passing through the dense forest  from Ahobilam to Mysore accompanied by his disciples, journeying to the next destination .

It was a very tough task traveling those old days .

Enroute , His Holiness Jeeyar decided to halt at a spot near a small rivulet to perform his evening puja to Lord Narasimha .

As he was settling down to offer prayers, there was a commotion.

His disciples rushed to him  informing about  the  bandits  who  had come to loot the baggage they were carrying which had Lords Jewelry and paraphernalia offered by several kings and devotees .

The unperturbed Jeeyar went  boldly to meet the  bandit leader of the gang, and told him that they had nothing which belonged to them , and everything they possessed belonged to Lord Narasimha .

He requested him to take it  without any inhibitions , after he finished his  evening puja . He politely returned and offered prayers .

The dacoit leader  followed His holiness and was waiting for his turn to loot the jewelry.

jajaj

The jeeyar commenced his puja.

He offered “Chakkarai Pongal (Sweet) prepared out of rice and jaggery” to the lord.


A Mangala Haarati to Lord Narasinga thrice and prayed LORD  humbly to accept his offerings .

kkkkk

At the end of third round of the mangala Haarathee  all the dacoits  who were hiding near the bushes  came out and suddenly fell at the  lotus feet of Jeeyar and asked him to protect them .

They were shivering with fear and pleaded His holiness to save them as  large number of lions were attacking them.

The Jeeyar could not see the lions but he realized that his Lord had come to rescue him. He requested the lions to disappear.

The dacoits who had come to rob fell at his lotus feet  repeatedly , begging forgiveness and then escorted the jeeyar safely out of the forest till Mysore .

Yamunacharya to Aalavandar…… The Acharyar who was guru of Swami Ramanuja


mm

Swamy Yamunacharya, was the son of Isvara Bhatta and grandson of the great acharya Swamy Nathamunigal. He appeared near Viranarayanapuram (present day Kattu Mannargudi) in Tamil Nadu.

aass

Yamunacharya was a child prodigy. Yamunacharyar went to Sri Mahabhashya Bhatta a learned scholar as a student . During those period all the Vidwans (scholars) in the Chola Kingdom had to pay annual tribute (prescribed fee) to Aakkialwan, the royal purohit and court pundit. One day on receiving the notice for the tribute, Mahabhashya Bhatta, became very sad, as he was penny less.

img_20161211_175802682_hdr283416333.jpg

 

Observing his sad face, and coming to know the difficult situation, Sri Yamuna took it upon Himself to put an end to the audacity and the atrocity of Aakkialwan.

.facebook_1510193779746.jpg371309919.jpg

He tore the notice to pieces and sent the messenger back. On hearing this, Aakkialwan sent the messenger back to ask young Yamuna, whether he was a poet or a scholar well versed in Shastras who can take on him . Yamuna replied We are not just poets nor mere scholars who have seen the other shore of the Shastras.

img_20161211_1629445591993472709.jpg

 

 

But , we have the strength and ability to tear open the opponents who indulge only in cheap publicity. Seeing the reply, Aakkialwan was astonished at the scholarship of Sri Yamuna and expressed the same to the Chola King. The King ordered Yamuna to attend to his court immediately, which was refused bluntly by Sri Yamuna.

mmmm

The King realizing that he wasn’t dealing with an ordinary person sent a palanquin along with its bearers to bring Sri Yamuna. Looking at Sri Yamuna, the king ordered him to start the debate with court pundit, Aakkialwan as per the conversation . Sri Yamuna replied, Well, your Majesty it is hard for you to decide the winner and the loser when we debate and we both may not accept defeat. Therefore it would be appropriate if we argue in the midst of learned scholars who are assembled here .

mmmmm

Having invited all learned men, he occupied the royal throne along with his queen at the debating hall. The queen, being very much impressed by the handsome appearance and tejas of the young man, drew the attention of the King towards him and exclaimed that the lad would never sustain defeat in the wordy quarrel. If at all he is defeated, she said that she would become a maid and cook the food for the dogs in the palace. The King too retorted saying that in case Aakkialwan was the loser, he would part with half of his kingdom by presenting it to Sri Yamuna.
aas

The debate started.

img-20171225-wa0008-961714720.jpg

Aakkialwan said to Sri Yamuna, Let us start with ordinary worldly affairs. I will negate all your affirmatives and your negative statements will be made affirmatives by me.

.facebook_1514169040806.jpg-941934002.jpg

Agreeing to this proposal, Sri Yamuna uttered three sentences to Aakkialwan.
1) Your mother is a barren woman.
2) The King is righteous one
3) The Queen is a very chaste woman.

Fearing corporeal punishment at the hands of the king by the denial of the three statements, Aakkialwan simply blinked and wronged his hands. But Sri Yamuna came out with his denial of these three statements with confidence .

.facebook_1513259858222.jpg-305586125.jpg

1) A single tree cannot become a garden. Similarly one child is not enough to make a mother. As Aakkialwan is the only son of his mother, she is still a barren woman.
2) The sins committed by the subjects will go to the King, as he has not prevented them from doing so. Thus the king loses his righteousness.
3) Normally a girl becomes the wife of divine personalities like Indra etc prior to marriage as per shastras . Thus the queen has forfeited her claim for chastity.

img-20171214-wa00201480544710.jpg
These negations earned the approval of all scholars and thus Aakkialwan was put to shame. The same fate overtook Aakkialwan in the Shastra debate that followed. Now Sri Yamuna had acquired the right to strike on the head of Aakkialwan. But he politely declared his decent decision, Oh gentleman! I will not strike you on your head as per our agreement before the debate. It is because, I give due respect to your age and the exalted position that you occupy in the royal court .

kkkkk

This proclamation earned the appreciation and approval of all the scholars. The queen rushing towards Sri Yamuna embraced him and observed with a slippery tone full of affection . You have come to my rescue. Hence you are my ruler

(Ennai ….   Aalavandeero )

. From that day onwards he came to be called Aalavandar. Having said so, she took him to the palace accompanied by the King. His Majesty also kept up his promise by offering half of his kingdom to Sri Aalavandar.
