Sri Veerabrahmendra Swamy Footprints

Swamy Foot Prints

                Born in the early 17th Century, dispelling the misunderstandings and ignorance that were rampant in the innocent people of that period, removal of and emancipation of inequalities in religions, castes and creeds and driving away superstitions prevalent at that time in the society at large, establishing harmony, well being of the entire mankind and a reformer of the society professing his theory of equality among the entire populace, apart from being a social reformer, and a great sage who was able to fore-caste present and future times through his Kalagnana and remaining a fore-teller of the three times i.e., past, present and future by his great visionary skills, Sri Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swamiji lived through the Century and remains a great visionary of the future in the annals of history. He warned the bad elements in the society that he would re-incarnate as Veerabhoga Vasantha Rayulu in future re-establishing righteousness- the Dharma in the society and one being a Commander of the Future, he alerted the entire populace. He is one who professed and practiced all that he was preaching at that time, an idol and a beloved leader of the masses. Having sacrificed his entire life for the welfare of the society, remaining in the self-made tomb forever-an embodiment of virtues and great principles in the life-and-that is Sri Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swamy.

                The sacred place where the Swamiji went into exile, the self-made tomb in which he went into deep meditation is called “Sri Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swamy Mattam” (Kandimallayapalli, Kadapa Dist.). It is the firm belief of the devotees that Sri Swamiji went into deep medita- tion in the live tomb on the auspicious day of Suddha Dasami of Vysakha month. It is the belief of the current Mathadhipathi Sri Veerabhoga Vasantha Venkateswara Swamiji that Sri Veerabrahmendra Swamiji must have gone into exile and remained in deep meditation during 1963 A.D.
