He lost his mother early in his childhood. His father was highly learned in the ancient Hindu Scriptures — the Vedas and the Shastras. Sri E. Ananthacharya is the author of several books on the Vedas and the Ayurveda School of medicine. While many would everyday gather around his father to get their doubts cleared regarding various intricate questions on the Vedas, young Bharadwaja appeared to be indifferent.
He was adept in cricket. That one question astounded the man in its penetrating intelligence. He had no answer. On that very day his nephew passed away. What is its nature? How can we contact it? What is life? What is death? Is there a soul? What is time? In , Acharyaji completed his post-graduation in English Literature. He began working as a Lecturer in English and appeared for the rigorous Indian Administrative Services exam in The following year, he was declared selected and sent an appointment letter.
Much in the vein of prince Siddhartha who gave up a life of power and wealth and later became known as Lord Buddha, Acharyaji also turned down the offer. After that, on a specific indication from Baba I left the ashram and settled in my present job here, at Vidyanagar Neloore Dist.
At first I was very much disappointed with the life here which had stifled my spiritual longings. There was none that shared my aspirations, none to join me in Satsang. Life looked dreary and barren even like the rocky soil here. I yearningly prayed to Baba either to take me to a place where I could have Satsang or to secure it here for me. A Christian boy, a student, started criticizing me for adoring a human being like Sai Baba. A discussion ensued which went on for days and drew large numbers of students to participate in it.
Out of these a small group took shape and decided to have weekly Satsang devotional or spiritual gathering on Thursdays for Bhajan. Indeed, several saints such as Sri Ranganna Babu of Guntur and Sri Samarth Narayana Maharaj of Harihar themselves came to bless the devotees rather than the devotees going to them. Many such groups sprung up at several places and Pujya Acharyaji began to travel extensively to spread the message of Baba. They elected Acharyaji as their head.
Pujya Acharyaji entered matrimony with respected Smt. Alivelu MangaThayaru fondly known to us as Ammagaru on March 6th After , Pujya Acharyaji resigned his job and devoted himself full time to intensive research into the lives and teachings of several saints, travelling extensively and personally contacting many of them. He studied in depth seven branches of science and five of the major religions of the world Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Christianity and Taoism.
In began the fortnightly magazine Sai Baba. He met personally all those who had been fortunate to have lived with and observed Sai Baba — the man and the master - and recorded their experiences.
He also translated many spiritual works from other languages and brought to light spiritual traditions of yore The culmination of all this is a series of books on Sri Sai Baba of Shirdi, Sri Akkalakot Maharaj, Sri Tajuddin Baba of Nagpur and numerous others in English and Telugu. Since Pujya Acharyaji had himself been an agnostic before becoming a believer, his books such as Edi Nizam What is the Truth? By now he was father of a daughter and son.
His dynamic life of spiritual ministration continued undisturbed despite a host of domestic troubles. Many would come to him for succor — spiritual and physical. He used his personal funds to educate many young students with no means and for many other social purposes. Pujya Acharyaji made those who contacted him start spiritual disciplines easily and live richer, purposeful, righteous and peaceful lives. Indeed in the past century India has borne many great men and women.
What distinguishes him? His work was not for himself, not just for those around him but is for all the coming generations. The Quest for Truth, which is as hard as treading the edge of a razor, is now for us an open book.
Acharyaji was a realized soul. His life showed that Realization neither elevates nor eliminates us from the world, but establishes one in fullness, which is evident in all that he did. Though he has left his mortal frame, even now He responds to the call of the devotees. It is now nearly twelve years since our beloved Pujya Acharya Ekkirala Bharadwaja Master attained Mahasamadhi April 12th, ; years in which we have often felt his absence in flesh and blood and yet have been immensely assured, of his response whenever called to, of his sure but remote guidance of our lives.
