About Chaganti Koteswara Rao garu

Brahmasri Chaganti Koteswara Rao (చాగంటి కోటేశ్వరరావు) is an eminent speaker on matters related to Sanathana Darma. He was born to Sri Chaganti Sundara Siva Rao garu and Smt Suseelamma. He married Smt.Subramanyeswary and has two children. As of 2014 he is working in Food Corporation of India, Kakinada.
Spiritual Discourses:
Sri Chaganti Koteswara Rao is a silent reader of puranas and blessed with wonderful oratory skills. He started giving pravachan on puranas extempore and proven his spectacular command on Spiritual Discourses on various Puranas, Ithihasams like Srimad Ramayanam, Srimad Bhagavatham and devotional hymns like Soundarya Lahari and Lalitha Sahasranama strotram. He has delivered discourses for 42 days continuously at Guntur on Sampoorna Ramayanam during 2005, Srimad Bhagavatham for 42 days during 2006, Shiva Maha Puranam for 30 days during 2007 and Sree Lalitha Sahasranama Stothram for about 45 days during 2008 . In addition he gave numerous pravachanams on various topics throughout the country.

He gives his discourses in Telugu language. He mesmerizes the audience with well refined reciting and thought provoking citations from various puranas extempore.

He has achieved what perhaps no other Telugu scholar managed to do. He has, by the quality of his pravachanams, command over Telugu language and all the classic texts, single handedly revived interest in Telugu classics and literature among the current generation. It is no exaggeration to say that in this age of English language assault on the world, BrahmaSri Chaganti Koteswara Rao stands tall holding out the greatness of Hindu culture, Hindu mythology to the present generation in Telugu language. The beauty of his pravachanas is visualization which is very much needed for today's world.

Listening to any of his complete pravachanams (Ramayana|Sampoorna Ramayanam), there are two classic advantage Sravana is hearing of Lord's Lilas. Sravana includes hearing of God's virtues, glories, sports and stories connected with His divine Name and Form. The devotee gets absorbed in the hearing of Divine stories and his mind merges in the thought of divinity; it cannot think of undivine things. The mind loses, as it were, its charm for the world. The devotee remembers God only even in dream.

The devotee should sit before a learned teacher who is a great saint and hear Divine stories. He should hear them with a sincere heart devoid of the sense of criticism or fault-finding. The devotee should try his best to live in the ideals preached in the scriptures.

One cannot attain Sravana-Bhakti without the company of saints or wise men. Mere reading for oneself is not of much use. Doubts will crop up. They cannot be solved by oneself easily. An experienced Guru is necessary to instruct the devotee in the right path.

King Parikshit attained Liberation through Sravana. He heard the glories of God from Suka Maharishi. His heart was purified. He attained the Abode of Lord Vishnu in Vaikuntha. He became liberated and enjoyed.
