BHADRACHALAM

Ramadas were a Bhakta and a mystic of a very rare caliber, and he had merged his own individuality in the con-temptation of the Divine Ramachandra.

He had become one with the Lord and in fact be had his being in the Lord. He was therefore not affected by the imprisonment of his own body, and was spending his time in ecstatic contemplation and prayer of the Lord.

Sri Rama was so pleased with thedevotion of this great Bhakta, that he himself appea- red before Tanashah the Kutub Shahiruler, in the form of Gopanna alias Saint Rama- das and showered, by his grace, lakes of rupees equivalent to the amount that had been spent by Ramadas.

Tanashah was taken aback in amazement at this divine miracle. He was a great king who, though a Muslim, was catholic in his approachto the other religions andrecogni- zing the greatness of Saint Ramadas, released him and encouraged him in his pious work.

He also allowed Saint Ramadas to mint gold coins, popularly known as 'Rama- tangi', in the same shape in which Lord Ramachandra showered the coins before Tanashah. Saint Ramadas has composed several beautiful Telugu Kritis in praise of Sri Ramachandra.
