On 29th n 30July 5th Generation of sir Thomas Munro visited Mantralaya and took the blessings of Rayaru.
Mantralaya village in Andhra Pradesh is a place where the `Brindavana’ of famous ‘Dvaita’ saint ‘Raghavendra Swami’ is located.
When Sir Thomas Munro was the Collector of Bellary in 1800, the Madras Government ordered him to procure the entire income from the Math and Manthralaya village.When the Revenue officials were unable to comply with this order, Sir Thomas Munro visited the Math for investigation. He removed his hat and shoes and entered the sacred precincts.
Sri Raghavendra swamy emerged from the Vrindavan and conversed with him for some time, about the resumption of endowment. The Saint was visible and audible only to Munro, who received Mantraskata (God’s blessing).
The Collector went back and wrote an order in favour of the Math and the village. This notification was published in the Madras Government Gazette in Chapter XI, page 213, with the caption “Manchali Adoni Taluka”. This order is still preserved in Fort St. George and Mantralaya.
