The result from contemplation of Sreepada Sreevallabha
How fortunate are the people living in this kali yuga! Even Kuruvapuram is a small
village; a vedic scholar and a pious brahmin named Shiva Sarma who recognised the greatness of Sreepada was living there along with his wife Ambika.
Theirs’ was the only brahmin family in Kuruvapuram. Daily he used to cross the river and earned money through acts appropriate for brahmins to eke out a living. After making some money he used toreturn to Kuruvapuram. He belonged to the lineage of Kasyapa Sage. Shiva Sarma was a great scholar; a strict adherent of religious practices and belonged to yajur veda sect. Hewas losing his children in a very short time. At last one son survived. Unfortunately, he wasa dullard and a blockhead.
Shiva Sarma became weak and sick as a skeleton due to the distress caused by the useless child. One day he recited veda in the presence of Sreevallabha and stood silent. Sree Sreepada noticed the sorrow in his mind and with a gentle smile said, “Shiva Sarmaa! I am a slave to those who forget all worries and constantly meditate upon Me.
Tell me about your desire.” For that Shiva Sarma said, “Swamee! I wished that my son should become a greater scholar and or at or than me. Allmy aspirations became futile. My son became an incorrigible idiot. For You who can do and undo things easily, it is not difficult to make him a learned and useful one. I leave it to your kind Will. In reply Sreepada averred, “My child!
The fruits of past actions are unavoidableeven to great people. The entire creation is moving subjected to unbreakable laws.Women get husbands as fruits of their worship.
One begets children as fruits of his devotion. One should always donate to deserving people. Donations made tounworthy persons bring undesirable results. If food is offered to a good naturedperson, the donor of food derives some part of the merit accruing from the gooddeeds performed by the good person. Donation should be made withoutarrogance. Then only it gives good results.On account of the past karma (acts andtheir effects in previous lives) you got a dull witted one as your son. You couple wanted achild with long span of life. You did not want a short lived child. So I granted you a son with complete span of life. If his sin earned in the previous life has to be erased and he has to bemade a good scholar, you have to be ready to sacrifice your life. That has to be done inconsonance with the karmic principle. If you are prepared to sacrifice your life I will make your son a worthy scholar. For that Shiva Sarma replied, “Swamee! I entered old age. I am ready to relinquish my life. What more can I aspire than my son becoming a great scholar and speaker like Brihaspati.” Then Sreepada who, capable of making things happen and not happen declared, “Yes! You will die soon. After death you will remain for some time in
subtle body and undertake penance in an underground cellar below a neem tree in Dheesilatown. Afterwards, you will take birth in the holy land of Maharastra. Don’t reveal this toyour wife under any circumstances
