Sri Swamiji entered Brindavana alive in the year 1671, and the day of His Brindavana Pravesa was informed to all His devotees. The Brindavana was constructed accordingly and His ardent devotee and disciple Diwan Venkanna made all the arrangements for the designated day. Prior to Brindavana pravesa Swamiji performed puja of LORD MOOLA RAMA ‘ and began playing on the Veena a beautiful lyric ‘INDIGU ENEGE’ which spontaneously flowed from Him along with Veena gana. Lord Krishna danced to the tune of his music and gently lead Raghavendra to the Brindavana. Swamiji smiled, blessed all his devotees before the great moment of His Brindavana pravesa.
His successor Sri Yogindra Theertha performed Panchamritha Abisheka and Puja to Brindavan.
One of the Sishyas of Sri Raghavendra, Sri Appannacharya who was in Bikshalaya, on the other bank of river Thungabadra, filled with sorrow frantically rushed to Mantralaya to get Raghavendra’s blessings. Though the river was in spate, it paved the way to him to reach Brindavana. Appanacharya unconsciously started reciting The sloka “ ‘Sri Purnaboda guru theertha’ describing the glories of Sri Raghavendra and his karunya to his devotees. As he reached the brindavana he was in….…..keerthi dig vijitha vibuthi rathula …… he was so filled with emotion that his voice broke and he couldn’t utter the words any more to complete the sloka. Suddenly everyone around noticed the sloka being completed with “ SAKSHI HAYAS HOTHRA HI’’- which means LORD HAYAGRIVA is the witness for fulfilling the desire of devotees of Raghavendra and these words came from within the brindavana.
