18. Conclusion

Sri Chaganti Koteswara Rao. (2016)

Though Sri Chaganti Koteswara Rao garu rarely shares his personal experiences, that day unable to hold in the dhara of divine anugraham (grace), shared one of His experiences. One day when He was very low on funds (savings) had to fulfill an educational related payment for his child. He in his anxiety to accommodate the required amount in a limited time without requesting others for support, recited Kanakadhara and expressed his desire and also gratitude towards the Divine Mother for not having to see such a situation till date. He eventually reached the bank to confirm his closing balance. To his surprise, he noticed a large deposit and higher balance than imagined. Unable to recollect and comprehend, assumed it to be a mistake and so notified the bank clerk. After further discussions with Sharadha Garu, a known acquaintance working as a clerk at the bank, investigated the source of the funds and explained Sri Chaganti that one of his old savings certificates matured and was cashed into the account. Sri Chaganti in his busy schedule and preoccupied with his pravachanams forgot about it. This incident might not be a surprise to many, but for him, it was the Divine Mother as Shakambhari safeguarded his future needs, and made sure the maturity of that saving happened in a timely manner, this incident to him itself was Kanakadhara.

Kanakadhara in this way cultivates compassion and maturity within us so that we can walk the path of dharma and eventually experience its karma:phala. Kanakadhara also fosters the inherent peace and content within us by giving us confidence and making sure our dharmic desires are fulfilled without us going into desperation. Becoming such a person or having such a member in one’s family uplifts the entire family, friends, and relatives. Shastra and Purana show us that having such an individual in the community will shield generation from ill events making them flourish with prosperity and faith.

Though Sri Chaganti has not discussed in details about the last few slokas in his Pravachanam due to time limitations, the tatva of his pravachanam encompasses its full essence and its limitless potential to bring change and prosperity into our lives.

Let us rejoice ourselves reciting Kanakadhara in our homes with our family and friends. May our recitation imprint it’s tatva and it’s potential onto our children so that this legacy of the Divine Mother given to us through Sri Shankara is inherited by generations to come. May this Dhara resonate in our homes and not just during pooja but also while performing our daily chores, humming its rhythm and recollecting the aspects and the soundaryam of Sri Lakshmi and Sri Maha Vishnu, so that we can fall in their gracious sight. Sri Chaganti garu concludes this outstanding pravachanam of Kanakadhara as a flow that equates to the grand Ganga Herself. Though this pravachanam and this discussion has reached to an end, please note that the dhara of this Great Ganga will continue in our lives and passes on to the next generation.

In the very beginning, we have discussed that well-wishers or elders of the society are the ones who take up the resolve to reach out to a Devoted Scholar to enlighten us with their knowledge, in the form of a pravachanam. It’s Reepaaku Subbharao garu who put forward this resolve and requested Sri Chaganti to share this dhara with us so that we can be drenched by it. Let’s all be grateful to such a personality who thrived towards the well-being of the society.

Sri Chaganti garu concludes this pravachanam by sharing some valuable facts of Aashada Maasam (one of the twelve masams in a year, a masam is similar to a month but based upon the phases of moon cycle), which usually comes during the months of June and July. This maasam doesn’t contain any auspicious days, or rather we should say that the Rishis intended not to include any auspicious days as per the Muhurat Shastra or Jyotishya Shastra, hence, not many festivities or events like weddings happen during this time of the year. The only Naimitikha Tedhi (Auspicious day) is Guru Pournami (pournami meaning full moon day). In this way Ishwara and Rishis made sure that this time of the year be dedicated towards exploring, learning and cherishing Guru vaibhavam (greatness of the Guru). Unlike every other pournami (full moon) which is dedicated to the worship of the Divine Mother, Guru Pournami became a placeholder for us to serve our Guru and explore their sidhantam (teachings and discipline). By doing so, will automatically lead us to the anugraham (grace) of Ishwara who is the ultimate Guru, as He is Trimurti Vyatmakam (unified conscience of all three concepts of creation, preservation and its dissolution) and also the Para:shakthi (the primordial energy that mobilizes creations till its dissolution, so that creation reaches back to its source). This is the reason one should avail the opportunity to worship their Guru or at the least participate in the service and rituals of Guru. Utilizing the opportunity of it being Aashada Maasam and Guru Poornima (at the time of this Pravachanam), Sri Chaganti and other elders have organized to invite a personality who sheds tears of joy speaking about great sages and rishis who forged Sanatana Dharma as Gurus, who has spent his life to learn two of the four Vedas, who as Guru taught Sri Chaganti himself, whose sampradhayam (culture) is so firm that even the era of Kali:yuga he doesn’t wear a shirt except a uttariyam (cloth worn over the left shoulder by a Gruhastu) because he considers his body to be the tool for Ishwara, through which he had learnt and chanted the Vedas. His hands are so used to forming gestures in tune with the rhythm of the Vedas that even while speaking his hands makes gestures out of habit. Who has a glow emitting Vedic knowledge like the rays of Sun when he speaks with references from Shastra, Purana, Vedic mantras and Sanatana Vangmayam (literature), and that glow didn’t dwindle even by age or under medications. This was his determination and conscience to maintain the sanity of Vedas. He who has filled all his seven elements of his body blend with Vedic mantra and his heart filled with constant worship of Ishwara.

He with his Aantaryagam (the inner fire of knowledge and inspiration to seek Ishwara) brought significance and recognition to East Godavari district in India and continued to reside in a remote village, even when so many followers are ready to serve him if relocated. He during floods lost his home yet declined funds when offered and requested those funds be used towards the renovation of the temple and continued to reside in a cattle shed as he considered that to be a good enough place for him to stay and perform Sandhya Vandanam. He spent his time teaching children Vedas alongside his dharma pathni who is always by his side supporting him as a punya Murthy (embodiment of purity). That personality is none other than Sri Krishna Avadhanulu, and it’s to this couple that Sri Chaganti and other elders have showered their respects and performed Guru pooja on the Guru poornami day. (Srichaganti. K.D.S, n.d., p.1-19)


  • We learnt how Sri Ganesha is the source, the beginning, as He provides and removes obstacles for our benefit.
  • We explored Shakthi and Purusha and why they should be worshiped together.
  • We dwell on the understanding of Ishwara and Shakthi.
  • We toured into the vital concepts of Sanatana Dharma which are Dharma, Karma, Kama, Guru, Bhakthi and Shraddha.
  • We understood the significance of Guru who stands at a higher stage then Ishwara Himself, and its in his light that one realizes Ishwara.
  • We dwell in the endless magnificence of our Mother, Devi or Ishwari
  • We saw the vital nature of Kama and how its can be channeled towards sat:karma.
  • Finally we found an approach towards our upliftment, towards forgiveness and prosperity, towards dhyanam, gyanam and finally moksha.

For being born as a manusya (descendants of Manu, human beings), especially after so many janma (lives), traversing through various upadhi (forms and species), it’s a great opportunity discussing such a literature passed on to us by an extraordinary Jagath guru, the very incarnation of the gyana pradatha (Kailasha Shankara), who manifested as Sri Adishankaracharya. The least we could do is to cherish our lives by continuing our quest towards exploring such literature.

When we notice the dark clouds in the sky let’s not forget to recall the nature of Ishwara. Let’s admire the nature and recollect the Divine Mother who as Prakruti embraces us with so many beautiful experiences. When we see those baby birds, let us imagine ourselves as children to the Divine Mother, and lets slowly start to put Dharma as the higher choosing compared to desire, let channel our desires towards Ishwara and experience them as Ishwara Prasad(am). Let’s make kama our ladder towards our own upliftment and let’s keep exploring the tatva gifted to us as literature by legendary Rishis and Gurus who strive towards samaaja vaibhavam (upliftment of society) seeking no recognition or fame or wealth, but just with their hearts filled with devotion towards Ishwara. Let’s fill our hearts with the nectar of devotion so that Ishwara like the humming bird can come for it and take us towards gyana. Lets swim and drench ourselves in the magnificence of Kanakadhara and become the very dhara immersed in the dhyana of the Divine Mother and let’s celebrate many such Guru Poornimas with gratitude towards Gurus.
