ವಾಧಿರಾಜರು ಕುದಿರೆ ಬಂದಿತೆ - வாதிராஜரு குதிரே பந்திதே

வாதிராஜ சுவாமி என்று சொல்லும் போது நம் கண் முன் நிற்பது லக்ஷ்மி ஹயவதனரும், அவர் தலையில் கடலைப் பிரசாதத்தை வைத்திருப்பதும் அதனை பகவான் நாராயணர் குதிரை வடிவில் வந்து அதனை உண்பதும் தான். வாதிராஜரின் வெள்ளைக் குதிரையைப் பற்றிய ஒரு சுவையான நிகழ்ச்சியை இங்கே அறியலாம்.

There was a farmer who was a great devotee of Sri Panduranga Vithala. His fields were located just on the banks of the river Bheema. He used to grow Channa Dhal in his fields. This time his ploughing was very good and all the entire fields were abundant with Channa Dhal. To save and look after the fields, this farmer used to watch the fields day and night.
One day, a white horse just walked into his fields and started eating all the Dhal grains. The farmer got very worried and followed the horse to shoo it away. His attempts to catch the horse failed. He just tried to follow the horse and ultimately reached Sri Vadiraja's place of stay and vanished. The farmer entered the ashrama of Sri Vadiraja and complained to the Swamiji about the horse.
Sri Vadiraja after hearing the story of the farmer told the farmer that HE had no white horse but accepted to bear the loss if the same thing happens the next day. Sri Vadiraja told the farmer not to follow the horse but let HIM know if it tries to eat the grains again.
The farmer watched his fields and once the horse arrived the next day, he immediately went to Sri Vadiraja and told HIM about the incident. Sri Vadiraja who had just finished HIS pooja told the farmer that he was very lucky since the nhorse was no ordinary but Sri Hayavadana in disguise. Sri Vadiraja immediately took to the fields but could not see the horse but wherever the horse had set its foot, the grains had become GOLD.
The farmer was astonished and prayed to Sri Vadiraja. Sri Vadiraja without any ego, praised the farmer's devotion towards Sri Panduranga Vithala and told him that he was luckier to have the darshan of the Lord..
