VEDANTA DESHIKAR

Introduction

A great scholar and saint who lived about six hundred years ago. His personality was a blend of immense scholarship and a matching devotion to God. Love for mankind marked his eventful life; and he was full of piety and humility, despite his high scholastic accomplishments. He turned down patronage, money and honors, which came to him unasked, and led an exemplary life of sacrifice.

Vedanta Deshikar

About six hundred and fifty years ago, one day, the people of Melkote in Karnataka, South India, were in a state of jubilation. The great savant and saint Vedanta- deshikar were to visit the town that day. Early in the morning, men and women, donning their best apparel had gathered outside the town. Arrangements had been made to welcome the great acharya and to accord him temple honors. Melkote is the abode of Lord Chelvanarayana. Musical instruments were playing auspicious tunes and Vedic hymns were being chanted. The temple priests and other devotees were singing in sweet voices the Tamil hymns and prayers composed by the Alwar saints of yore.
