The four vedas assumed the form offour dogs and are licking His holy Sandals. Vedas absolve all impurities. Whensuch vedas themselves became dirty dogs and lie at His Lotus Feet, it is difficultfor humans to guess about His holiness. Even for celestials, and seven sages it iswell nigh impossible
In ancient ages during the time of incarnation of Vamana one sage by nameVamadeva Maharshi was living as His contemporary. During the time of birth his head cameout of the womb of his mother and atonce retreated into the womb after seeing thesurroundings outside. Then when deities and hermits prayed he was born again. He was ‘Brahma Jnaani’ from the very birth
The same thing happened in the birth of Sreepada also. As He was born twice He is a
dwija (twice-born) from the very birth. He is a brahmajnaana sampanna (one who is richwith the knowledge of Paramaatma) from the very birth. As He incarnated with complete,undivided and infinite non-dualistic
satchhitaananda (fountain of being, intelligence andhappiness) there was no preceptor for Him.
Sripada srivallbha birth time :
Sreepada was born on Ganesh Chaturdhi inChitta star under Tula Raasi in Simha Lagna. In reality He is not the combinedform of the Trinity, but a special phenomenon much beyond them. To indicate thatHe belongs to fourth dimension transcending the Trinity He took birth on Chathurdhi. Also Suggesting that He is Ganesh who is the Lord of ‘Pravrutti Ganas’and ‘Nivrutti Ganas’ He took birth on Ganesh Chathurdhi.
Mars or Angaraka is theLord of Chitta star. Angaraka is also called planet Mangala. If this planet is afflicted, manyinauspicious events take place in the life of a person. Sreepada was born in Chitta star toremove all ill effects and to grant all auspicious results. Hence, if Sreepada isworshipped during the tenure of Chitta star, one derives abundant beneficialresults.
