Light from the core of the Sun, took on a form and presented itself as ŚrīPāda Vallabha.
ŚrīPāda manifested with a physical body, in the early 1300's; embodying Divnity in its wholesomeness. He represents the Supreme Energy, the Source of Creation!
To consider Him merely as an incarnation, reflects our limited perception. He represents the eternal and live cosmic power, inherent within human consciousness.
'Ananda' is the nature of the Self. It refers to the timeless dimension of contentment. We can enter this zone of eternal joy, if we transcend fear, desire, ego, etc. Recall ŚrīPāda Vallabha's words, relating to the anandamaiya kosha, which He terms as the Golden Pithikapuram'. Golden Pithikapur or Golden Shirdi is not bound or defined by physical dimensions.
To make this 'inner zone' accessible to all, to abide here permenantly, ŚrīPāda Vallabha, out of HIS immense love, has sent us this boat..
Let's sail our way from limited awareness to HIS eternal Consciousness...
