The Vow of a Saint

Madhavacharya, took the vow of a saint and saffron robes from Bharati Krishnateertha of Sringeri and was named Vidyaranya.

He was now middle-aged. He used to get up early in the morning. He bathed in Tungabhadra, came to the temple of Virupaksha and after worshipping at the temple, he came to his hermitage and engaged himself in studies and religious discourses. All his time was spent in this way and he was regular like a clock. He waited for the coming of the Man of Destiny who would establish the empire.

Years rolled by. There was no sign of his ambition getting fulfilled. Every night before going to bed he wept like a child and prayed with eyes full of tears, "Mother, one more day is wasted.

How many more days are you going to test?"
