He was considered to be a natural Poet Sahaja Kavi , needing no teacher. He was known to be very polite and was an agriculturist by occupation. Though he was a great scholar, he never hesitated to work in the agricultural fields. This was his first poetic venture which had the seeds of his great poetic talents. Bhogini Dhandakam is the earliest available Dhandaka rhapsody which uses the same gana or foot all through in.

The main theme was the destruction of daksha yagna performed in absence of Lord Shiva by Daksha Prajapathi. As a young man, he was a devotee of Lord Shiva. Later, Pothana became a devotee of Lord Rama and more interested in salvation. In the view of Pothana there is no difference between Shiva and Vishnu and the same was reflected in his Padyam 'ChethuLAranga Shivuni Poojimpadeni Nooru Novvanga hari keerthi salupadeeni dhayanu satyamulonuga thalupadeni kaluganetiki thallula kadupuchetu'.

One early morning during a lunar eclipse, on the banks of river Godavari, Pothana was meditating on Lord Shiva.

At that auspicious moment, Supreme Lord Rama appeared dressed like a king and requested Pothana to translate Bhagavatam into Telugu Andhramu and dedicate it to Him. The king himself is a scholar and wrote many works including Rudranavasudhakara, a well known drama. It is known that Pothana was patronized by this king in his early career, Pothana dedicated his first great work to this king, the king himself was a scholar, his contemporary reputation was immense vide Srinatha's poems.

It was common practice for many poets of the time to dedicate their devotional works to God himself and not necessarily to their patron-kings. The poem containing the derision against the ' Karanata Kiraata Keechakulu' is a chatuvu apocryphal attributed to Pothana with no proof that he actually wrote it. Even if he did, it is unclear who the Karanata villains were, very likely the rulers of Karnaata Samrajyam the contemporary term for the Vijayanagar empire who were raiding Rachakonda at the time.

The Rachakonda kingdom was under intense turmoil at the time, under attack by the Bahamani's from the west, Karanata Vijayanagar empire from the south and the Reddy Rajas from the east. Rachakonda and its king ceased to exist by the midth century, absorbed into the. There is yet another version about his birthplace. He indicated at one stanza that he belonged to 'Ekasila Nagaram', meaning single stone city which is located in Kadapa YSR district, and that place is considered to be the 'Ontimitta' or 'Vontimitta' village which semantically means the same thing and where a great temple dedicated to Kodanda Rama Swamy is located.

A poem of Pothana unwilling to dedicate his works to local kings was inscribed on the pedastal of god Rama's statue in the. Style He was quite fond of using rhythm and repetition of sounds giving a majestic grace to the style of writing. He was very skillful in using alankaras figures of speech like similes and metaphors.

Pothana imparted the knowledge of the divine to the Telugu people along with lessons in ethics and politics through Andhra Maha Bhagavatamu. He lived for sixty years. The story goes that Pothana wrote the first line of the verse, but could not continue because he did not know how vaikuntha looks! So he paused the writing at that point, and went to farm he was a cultivator by profession. When he came back in the evening, he saw the verse completed. He enquired his daughter about who wrote the other three lines.

The daughter replied — 'You yourself came in the afternoon and wrote some thing! So Pothana understood that Lord Sri Rama himself came and completed the verse. The result of chanting this Bhagavatamata is ultimate freedom, the Liberation of soul. So, let me sing it, since there is no other story better than this Bhagavatam. Approximate translation: A honeybee reveling in the honey-sweetness of Hibiscus, would he seek grass flowers?

A royal swan swaying in the pure breezes of the, would he go to the oceans? A nightingale relishing the juices of smooth young leaflets, will he approach rough leaves? A chakora bird blossoming in the moonlight of a full moon, would he go to dark places with thick fog?

It is important in Indian religious literature for its emphasis on the practice of devotion as compared to the more theoretical approach of the Bhagavad Gita; for a definition of religion that competes with the Vedas and for its extended description of a God in human form.

It is the source of many popular stories of Krishna's childhood told for centuries on the and of legends explaining Hindu festivals such as. The Bhagavata declares itself the essence of all the and derivative; The Srimad Bhagavatam is the very essence of all the literature.

One who has enjoyed the nectar of its never has any desire for anything else. The text complements the Pancharatra texts of Vaishnavism.

While the text focuses on Krishna 'Lord Narayana Vishnu himself appears and explains how and should never be seen as independent and different from him'. The sixth book includes the feminine principle as Shakti, or goddess Devi, conceptualizing her as the 'energy and creative power' of the masculine yet a manifestation of a sexless Brahman, presented in a language suffused with.

Jainism, Buddhism and Yoga as Bhakti The fifth book of the Bhagavata Purana is significant in its inclusion of homage and many chapters of legends about the of particularly, while homage to is included in various chapters by declaring him as one of avatars of Vishnu. However, the interpretation of Buddhism-related stories in the Purana range from honor to ambivalence to polemics wherein prophecies predict some will distort and misrepresent the teachings of the Vedas, and attempt to sow confusion.

The Bhagavata Purana is also significant in asserting that practice is a form of Bhakti. Origin, chronology and inconsistent manuscripts. An illustration of an episode from the Bhagavata IV. Traditional account The Bhagavata Purana, in verse 2. The text and the Hindu tradition also hagiographically credits the authorship of all 18 Maha Puranas to, who is revered for authoring the as well, and other ancient classics of India. A version of the text existed no later than CE, when it is mentioned by and quoted.

The Bhagavata Purana abounds in references to verses of the, the primary, the of school of Hindu philosophy, and the Bhagavad Gita, suggesting that it was composed after these texts. The text contains more details of Krishna's biography than the 3rd- 4th-century Harivamsha and Vishnu Purana, and is therefore likely to have been composed after these texts, suggesting a chronological range of — CE.

Within this range, scholars such as R. Hazra date it to the first half of the 6th century CE, Bryant as well as Gupta and Valpey citing epigraphical and archaeological evidence suggest much of the text could be from the 4th to 7th century, while most others place it in the post- period around the 9th century.

Parts of the text use an archaic flavour of Sanskrit, which may either suggest that its authors sought to preserve or express reverence for the Vedic tradition, or that some text has an earlier origin. There are two flavors of Krishna stories, one of warrior prince and another of romantic lover, the former composed in more archaic Sanskrit and the later in a different linguistic style, suggesting that the texts may not have been composed by one author or over a short period, but rather grew over time as a compilation of accretions from different hands.

Most editions of Puranas, in use particularly by Western scholars, are 'based on one manuscript or on a few manuscripts selected at random', even though divergent manuscripts with the same title exist.

Scholars have long acknowledged the existence of Purana manuscripts that 'seem to differ much from printed edition', and it is unclear which one is accurate, and whether conclusions drawn from the randomly or cherrypicked printed version were universal over geography or time. This problem is most severe with Purana manuscripts of the same title, including the Bhagavata Purana, that exist in regional languages such as Tamil, Telugu, Bengali and others—which have largely been ignored.

Philosophy The Bhagavata is primarily a bhakti text, with an emphasis on achieving through cultivating a personal relationship with Vishnu in the form of Krishna. The philosophy and teachings of the Bhagavata include several traditions, and an absence of a 'narrow, sectarian spirit'. While Bhakti Yoga is the prominent teaching, various passages show a synthesis that also includes Samkhya, Yoga, Vedanta, and Advaita Vedanta.
