1) Vachana Kalagnanam:
Vachana Kalagnana has 12 chapters. Here I give a brief description of each chapter.
Chapter 1 : ప్రథమాశ్వాసము – In this chapter Veera Brahmendra Swamy describes about his previous births to Annajaiah, who is regarded as form of Lord Brahma. He later says about establishment of Vijayanagara kingdom and gave chronological order of Vijayanagara kings and their exact ruling periods. He said about Veera Bhoga Vasantha Rayalu, who will come as future King and re-establishes the Vijayanagara Kingdom and leads the world into better place. He gave some prophecies about future, especially disastrous and awkward events. Later, he gave some future signs to know the birth of Veera Vasantaraya.
Chapter 2: ద్వితీయాశ్వాసము –
- Paragraph-1 – Salutation to Guru.
- Paragraph-2 – An important letter written to the earth dwellers, the common people.
- Paragraph-3 – Explains the arrival of Veera Yogi’s time along with some events.
Chapter 3: తృతీయాశ్వాసము – First part contains a Pooja style and mantras to be pronounced at the Pooja. Next part contains ‘Markendeya – Lord Shankarshana’ conversation. In this conversation, Lord Shankarshana who is another form of Lord Vishnu speaks of his Begotten Son, who is given all of his things and orders all of the Gods to serve him. The terminology of this chapter too is new to my knowledge. The style of talk, usage of words and the concept being said – are entirely divine and cannot be understood without the knowledge of the sayer’s mindset.
Chapter 4: చతుర్థాశ్వాసము – The research of Cheelampaati Gundaabhatla on Kalagnanam. He tried to decode the Kalagnanam regarding with events and Veera Vasantaraya. His style is divine and spiritual. Some are mystical and some are understandable. Interesting part for me is decoding of time periods.
Chapter 5: పంచమాశ్వాసము – This chapter is felt by me like an extension of 3rd Chapter. The same terminology and concept, but this time more and elaborated. Even the matter in Chapter 3 is reflected in 2 pages of this chapter. All of this chapter is about Promises, Events, Son of Vishnu, Arrivals of Vishnu and his Son and more. Wars, Destruction, Time periods and some unknown things. There are some Sanskrit verses too.
Chapter 6: షష్ఠాశ్వాసము – The future events related to society, religions and places. There are some events related to kingdoms. Also some natural and astronomical events, all prophesied in dis-order.
Chapter 7: సప్తమాశ్వాసము – It speaks like a message/promise in positive way to good people in assurance for future changes. Like a coded message that can be understood by only known men. A different terminology. But the last part of it is in Sanskrit – verses explaining acts of Veera Vasantaraya with years and dates. Some praising and assuring words too.
Chapter 8: అష్టమాశ్వాసము – Speaks of events that are going to happen at birth of Veera Vasantaraya. About unnatural events, disasters, reduction of castes and populations and many.
Chapter 9: నవమాశ్వాసము – The Kalagnanam by Saint Sarvajna. The prophecies of Sarvajna said to King Bijjalaraya, Chenna Basavanna and others in Kalyana Fort – about all the future kings of Vijayanagara Empire and their greatness. The prophecies are on the death of Ramaraya, fall of Vijayanagara Empire, decline of Shaivism, degradation of Hindu social practices, human relationships until the birth of Veera Vasantaraya. He said about the birth of Veera Vasantaraya, his arrival at Srisailam and his ascension to the throne of Vijayanagara Empire. This chapter is an inspiring part for Shaivaites.
Chapter 10: దశమాశ్వాసము – This chapter is said by Veera Brahmendra Swamy which speaks about his previous births, His lifetime events, and near events after his life time. This chapter looks as if already fulfilled. A style of auto-biography. And some future promises about his return.
Chapter 11: ఏకాదశాశ్వాసము – Written by some unknown author ‘Subbaraya’, is a fantastic part in whole of Kalagnanam. A detailed and precise prophecies with events and their specific astronomical timelines which helps to decode every event precisely. The first half part speaks on Total Solar Eclipse of August 02,2027 and its importance. Next part correlates time periods with acts of Veera Vasantaraya and his life. You can read the details in this website under post ’11th Chapter’.
Chapter 12: ద్వాదశాశ్వాసము – Prophecies by Veera Brahmendra Swamy. Some of them reflect in Govinda Vakyas too. These relate to events at End times, some natural, some social and many.
2) Dwipada Kalagnanam:
In this part, the poems are in Telugu Dwipada style : hence the name. The poems tells us about future events. This part of Kalagnanam is most chilling and horrible. First half of Dwipada describes the ways of wars, diseases, scales of deaths, natural events with some information of timelines. Second half describes success rallies of Veera Vasantaraya, Conquests by Commander ‘Parokshudu’, A great Yagna performed by Sage Kapila and some conclusions.
3) Siddha Guru Bhoda:
This part consists of 55 poems. All poems in this part will end with the word ‘Siddha’. Here ‘Siddha’ means his disciple. ‘Siddha Guru’ means teacher of Siddhaiah, who is Veera Bramendra Swamy. So, Siddhaguru Bhoda means teachings of Veera Bramendra Swamy. The whole meanings of all poems speak around the ways of Parabrahmam and paths to attain HIM. He gives natural examples to know the acts of Salvation.
4) Jeevaikya Bhodha:
In this part, he described about how to attain Mukthi through merging of one’s Soul (Athma) into Paramathma through Human body and Yoga. This topic is equivalent to Sage Kapila’s ‘Sankhya Darshanam’ or Sri Krishna’s ‘Bhagavadh Geetha’. This topic is so lamely written in aim of understandable by every man. The things that are mentioned in this topic are so precise that no Yogis have ever mentioned through their practical experiences in attaining Parabrahmam.
5) Kalikamba Poems:
This part consists of 232 Aataveladi (ఆటవెలది) poems (a telugu style). In this part, every poem will end with the word “Kalikamba! Hamsa! Kalikamba!”. This poem preaches about social behavior just like Vemana padyas. They link our behavior to paths of attaining Moksha. Some even sarcastic, as I understand.
6) Soujanya Patrikalu:
There are 2 chapters under this. One is Soujanya Patrika One, other is Soujanya Patrika two. These chapters are 2 letters said to be found in and around Brahmamgari Matam temple on Friday of November 08, 1912 and Monday March 20, 1961 respectively. The Vachana Kalagnanam is repeated in this part. But I personally doubt in the authenticity of these 2 patrikas as some points of these may contradict with some points in other parts of Kalagnanam.
7) Govinda Vakyalu :
The interesting and famous part of Kalagnanam There are 326 prophecies as poems in this part. Every poem will end with the word “shiva govinda govinda, hari govinda govinda”. These poems prophecy about events. About 30 Govinda Vakyas might be fulfilled, but most of the part is yet to happen. And nearly 200 of them speak about Veera Vasantaraya and his acts.
