VIDYARANYA

Let Your Auspicious Presence Be Ever Present in Me

In order to test Madhavacharya, Bhuvaneshwari came in the form of terrible heat, storm, rain, lightning, fire and huge floods. But Madhavacharya's firmness was least affected by any of these forces and his mind was firm. In the end Bhuvanesh- wari appeared before him as a mother hearkening to the cry of her infant.

Mother Bhuvaneshwari addressed Madhavacharya and said, "Child, I am pleased with your austere tapas. Get up from your tapas. Ask what you want." Her voice was sweet and full of love.

Madhavacharya opened his eyes and saw the auspicious face of his Goddess. His eyes were brimming with tears of joy. With folded hands he prayed, "Mother, what is there which you do not know? After seeing you, I do not feel the need to ask for anything worldly. Give me faith, wisdom and renunciation. Grant that your auspicious figure will always reside in my heart."
