After Raghunath Pant leaves his son to Sri Akshobhya theertha, he starts teaching his disciple the ‘Sarvamoola Grantha’. But Sri Jaya theertha tells that he’s already familiar with that. Sri Akshobhya theertha replies him that even he knows that and he further tells that Sri Madhwacharya has told him to teach as he’s Sri Jaya theertha’s guru now.
How is this possible???
Yes, it is possible because Sri Jaya theertha was blessed by Sri Anjaneya in his previous 2 birth’s.
- Arjuna, the Pandava prince, after he victory at kurukshetra started shouting “I have won the battle, I have achieved it”.
- Sri Anjaneya who positioned himself on the flag of Arjuna’s chariot stabilising and protecting it adviced Arjuna, “Arjuna, you have won the battle only because the almighty had blessed you to this position. Being so you should not forget the reality and truth by getting into the ego of the victory. Therefore you should get to know the facts, glories of the almighty through a guru.”
- Arjuna requested Sri Anjaneya the he should only bless him for that to happen. Sri Anjaneya then tells, “After my incarnation as Bhima, I will be born as Madhwa in the Kali yuga. At that time you’ll be born as a bull and you will hear all my teachings. In the birth following that of a bull, you’ll be enlightened of your previous births and will write commentaries on my grantha’s.”
Thus Sri Jaya theertha is none but Arjuna, the amsha of Indra. I would also like to mention that only because of Sri Anjaneya’s presence, Arjuna had won the kurukshetra. Where ever Sri Vaayu is present, Sriman Narayana is also present there. And Sri Hari will grant anything to a devotee who is sincerely devoted to Sri Anjaneya. I will also post a separate post on which I will discuss about why Sri Hari tells that Sri Vaayu is the supreme among the jeevas.
