Pothana — was an Indian Telugu poet best known for his translation of the Bhagavata Purana from Sanskrit to Telugu. He was a Telugu and Sanskrit Scholar. Early life Pothana was born at Bammera village, Palakurthy mandal, Warangal district in Telangana state Currently in Jangaon district in Telangana state.
His father was Kesanna and his mother Lakkamma. He was considered to be a natural Poet Sahaja Kavi , needing no teacher. He was known to be very polite and was an agriculturist by occupation. Though he was a great scholar, he never hesitated to work in the agricultural fields. This was his first poetic venture which had the seeds of his great poetic talents.
Bhogini Dhandakam is the earliest available Dhandaka rhapsody which uses the same gana or foot all through in Telugu. The main theme was the destruction of a yagna performed in absence of Lord Shiva by Daksha Prajapathi.
As a young man, he was a devotee of Lord Shiva. Later, Pothana became a devotee of Lord Rama and more interested in salvation. One early morning during a lunar eclipse, on the banks of river Godavari, Pothana was meditating on Lord Shiva. At that auspicious moment, Supreme Lord Rama appeared dressed like a king and requested Pothana to translate Bhagavatam into Telugu Andhramu and dedicate it to Him.
The king himself is a scholar and wrote many works including Rudranavasudhakara, a well known Sanskrit drama. It was common practice for many poets of the time to dedicate their devotional works to God himself and not necessarily to their patron-kings. Even if he did, it is unclear who the Karanata villains were, very likely the rulers of Karnaata Samrajyam the contemporary term for the Vijayanagar empire who were raiding Rachakonda at the time.
Rachakonda and its king ceased to exist by the midth century, absorbed into the Bahmani kingdom. There is yet another version about his birthplace. Style He was quite fond of using rhythm and repetition of sounds giving a majestic grace to the style of writing. He was very skillful in using alankaras figures of speech like similes and metaphors.
Pothana imparted the knowledge of the divine to the Telugu people along with lessons in ethics and politics through Andhra Maha Bhagavatamu. He lived for sixty years.
