BHADRACHALAM

INTRODUCTION

Bhadrachalam, What a name ! How resonant !! How somniferous!!! Aren't the components seem soaked in spirituality 'Bhadra' stands for auspiciousness and 'chalam' means mountain. It is indeed grand in composition, dignified in meaning, and tuneful in symphony. Each syllable with its drum like sound alerts even the Nidradevi-Morpheus lost in deep sleep. So, say 'Bhadrachalam' a bit aloud and see! Even the modern edition of Kumbhakarna too shaking his slumbering head a little stretches his gaze to catch a full glimpse of Sri Rama, the presiding deity of this place. That is the magic of this word, nay music of that august name. Ha! how holy is then that combination! Holier is the sanctum, and the holiest is the adored-Sri Ramachandra the celebrated Adikavi's immortal creation, who surpassed every hero, portrayed however masterly by any literary artist since the dawn of creative faculty. Its hoary antiquity, historical authenticity, religious sublimity are so entrenched in the hearts of Ramabhaktas of Andhra Pradesh that nothing flashes across their minds than this holy abode, whenever the glory of this son of Dasaratha is brought to reminiscence for reverence. None can gainsay the fact that such unique glory of this celebrated temple is heightened by the sublime devotion of Kancherla Gopanna, an illustrious mode mystic, for whose release Sri Rama descended, donning servants dress. An unexaggerated tangible truth embedded the pages of history and adorning the leaves of devotional literature of every genre in general, and lyrics in particular.
