It is the place where Sri Potuluri Veerabrahmam who was famous for his preachings and mainly for his remarks on future of the world, stayed in Kandimallayapalli. Veerabrahmam is the only futurologist that the East has produced. He entered Jeeva Samadhi in the year 1693. Brahmamgari Matham was built in Kandimallayapalli after the death of Veerabrahmam. The Matham does not look like temple but has beautifully carved statues and its walls are full of Veerabrahmendra Swamy's preachings and his predictions.
Sri Potuluri Veera Brahmendra Swami a Hindu mystic, born in 1610 in Cuddapah Andra Pradesh, India. He is the author of Kalagnana, an important text in Telugu that predicts the arrival of Kalki in the form of Sri Veerabhoga Vasantaraya.Very little is known about Sri Veera-Brahmam’s childhood except that he was born in Vishwabrahmin caste for Sri Paripurnachari and SmtPrakruthamba and that he grew up under the care of foster parents. Sri Veera Bhojacharya head of the Papaghni math near Nandikonda(Chikkabalapura District appro. 45 km from Bangalore City) and his wife Smt. Veera-Papamba. Lovingly called “Veeram Bhotlayya” he used to impress everyone by his extraordinary intelligence and spiritual bent of mind. When in his thirteenth year, his foster father, died he not only bore the blow calmly but proved a pillar of strength to his desolate mother.
He wrote 'Kalagnana', collections of prophecies on palm leaves. Most of his predictions came true and many are yet to happen. Also known as Indian Nostradamous by west, he said he will come again to this earth as 'Veera Bhoga Vasantharaya' and that would mean the end of life on earth. He prophesized that before his arrival the world would be in a very chaotic condition. Sri Veerabrahmam taught to his disciples about Shat Chakra and Kundalini yoga. He asked his disciples to chant 'Aum Hreem Kleem Sreem Sivaya Sree Veerabrahmane namaha'. He also said anyone who chant this mantra for 12,000 times will get his Darshan. Sri Veerabrahmam left his body with his self imposed 'Jeeva Samadhi'. He went into Samadhi when he was still alive and asked to close the stone above.
Like Vemana’s teachings, the chants of Brahmendra Swami also are simple and evoke immediate emotional response from listeners. Some of Brahmendra Swami’s predictions are in prose form. Some are written as moral maxims. Some offer exposition on philosophy, spiritualism, and yoga practice. Some are written as couplets. Many poems in praise of Kalikamba have been written by Brahendra Swami. Some of these contain cryptic esoteric truths. These will be intelligible only to initiates in yoga. His songs are most popular among religious mendicants. As in scriptures like Bhavishyapurana, Bhagavatham and Harivamsam, his predictions are mostly about the historical, geographical and social changes that will take place towards the end of Kali Yuga. As is supposed to be the case with the western prophet Nostradamus, Brahmendra Swami’s predictions also have proved to be true. His chants make anticipatory references to British rule in India, the disintegration of the caste system, rapid strides in science and technology, invention of trains and automobiles, growing dependence on electricity and electronic gadgets, the advent of Mahatma Gandhi, widow remarriages and social acceptance of divorces, the fall of aristocracy and the mounting prominenceof weaker sections of society; Brahmendra Swami’s chants also mention that power in the millennium will be in the hands of women, and actors and that society will witness a proliferation of fakes and quacks and that there will be a general dwindling of moral values and that honest people would be at the mercy of criminals and rowdies. One positive feature about the chants of Brahmendra Swami is their envisaging of an egalitarian society where all class distinctions and caste division would be eroded and the gates of opportunity would be thrown open to all — the rich and the poor, men and women. As in Nostradamus in the Kala Jnana chants of Brahmendra Swami also freaks and deformities and monstrosities in nature, irrespective of their pertaining to the plant, animal or human kingdoms, are always mentioned as bad omens betokening disasters about to take place. Similarly comets and meteorites are used as indices of imminent social and historical upheavals. Laxity in pointless orthodoxy is condoned but dire warning is consistently used against straying from the path of Dharma. Both wars which are the outcome of human greed and hatred and calamities of nature like floods and earthquakes are traced to the root cause — disharmonious life styles.
