Akkanna and Madanna were pleased when their recommendation met with success, more was the pleasure to the Gopanna's family sinking in stark poverty, and most was to the cause of theism. Gopanna ably and satisfactorily discharged his official duties and became a popular officer. His devotion too was slowly coming into the flood light of public gaze. Just at this juncture a miracle happened. Pokala Dhammakka, a local devotee of considerable fame, found to her good fortune the image of Sri Rama. For installation and regular worship, funds and patronage were found indispensable.

This news reached Gopanna. Soon he launched out a modest programme of building a temple for the newly found holy images. It began rising quicker than expected, rather in tune with his theistic impulses. What little he earned and saved went into construction along with public donations. His zeal loomed larger than his means. He determined to adorn the deities with costly jewels, and the temple with architectural adornments. When the spring of his finance was completely dried up by then, he turned his eye to state revenue collections. Huge funds to a tune of six lakhs were soon diverted and consumed to quench his devotional thirst. People were profited by a big temple swayamvyakta archamurti was installed, regular prayer services started; devotional activities multipled; influx of devotees increased; prosperous business achieved and endless spiritual programmes were carried on.
