Hindu dharma indicates that there is always an end of something that has started. Everything that is running or existing right now will surely stop someday. That theory applies to the ages present on our earth too. Every age has to end someday and as soon as the old one ends, they say a new one starts. Dinosaurs belonged to the age before humans existed and then this is our age which has to end someday too. This is what our Vedas preach as the Law of Creation. Not only that, it is also said that whatever happens on this planet has a reason behind its happening. So if this age which is called as ‘Kaliyuga’ has to end, then there has to be a reason behind it too.
What might be the reason?
This is what Brahmamgaru, the Indian Nostradamus, predicted for the end of days! Once upon a time, a great fortune teller, a foreseer, a future predictor was born in the Kadapa District. You all must’ve heard of Pothuluri Veerabrahmendra Swami, mostly as Brahmamgaru. If you haven’t then he’s a fortune-teller of the 17th century. He was known to be an incredible Kalagyani (man of the worldly wisdom) and soon acquired numerous devotees. Now his prophecies turned out to be so accurate that he has been deemed the Nostradamus of India.
Some of these predictions were meant to indicate the end of the world, and they were ridiculously amusing if not anything else. Yaganti nandi will come to life and rave. It is said to be growing in size over the ages. Millions of horses will come from the caves of Yaganti, to follow Kalki. The sage Agastya wanted to build a temple for Lord Venkateswara on this site. However, the statue that was made could not be installed as the toe nail of the idol got broken. The sage was upset over this and performed a penance for Lord Shiva. When Lord Shiva appeared, he said the place suits Shiva better as it resembles Kailash. Agastya then requested Lord Shiva to give the devotees a Parvathi Goddess as Lord Uma Maheswara in a single stone, which Lord Shiva obliged. Sri Yaganti Uma Maheswara Temple is one of the few temples patronized by one of the great dynasties of India. Every year Maha Shivaratri is celebrated and a large number of devotees from all over Andhra Pradesh visit. Shiva, Parvati and Nandi are the main deities in this temple. This temple is 14 km away from Banaganipalli in kurnool dt. The saint lord Veerabrahmendra swami stayed here for some time and wrote Kalagnanam. Legend has it that while the Sage Agastya was performing his penance, crows disturbed him and he cursed that the crows cannot enter the place. As the crow is the Vahana for Lord Shani, it is believed that Lord Shani cannot enter this place. The devotees believe that the Nandi idol in front of the temple is continuously increasing its size. The locals say that the idol was initially much smaller than its present size. They say that certain experimentation was carried out on this idol and it was said that the type of rock out of which the idol is carved has a growing or enlarging nature associated with it. Archaeological Survey of India has confirmed that the idol increases by 1 inch in every 20 years. Experiment suggests that the rock used to make the idol exhibits a growing nature. It is said that people used to do Pradakshinas (rounds) around it in the past. The temple staff has already removed one pillar as the size of the Nandi has increased. According to Potuluri Veera Brahmendra swamy, the Basavanna (stone nandi) of Yaganti will come alive and shout when Kali Yuga ends. So that is what you have to visit when you come to India. Don’t just book your business class flights, come trade and go. Book them for a stay too and decide to visit this temple. You can even opt for last minute flights if you wish to see it now. Either ways the decision is yours. So just decide it for yourself.
