The legend goes that he discharged his official duties earnestly and collected revenues due to the Sultan - while continuing his unswerving service to Lord Rama by chanting his name and feeding the poor.

Reconstruction of temple Edit Sri Ramanavami Kalyanam utsava at Bhadrachalam Temple , in Telangana Legendary stories inform that once he visited Bhadrachalam for a Jatara fair and was disturbed by the dilapidated state of the temple there.

Bhadrachalam was significant to devotees of Rama for many reasons. Lord Rama is said to have stayed near the Parnasala there with Sita and Lakshmana during his exile and also to have visited Shabari near Bhadrachalam although it is believed that Shabari used to live near Kishkindha , the kingdom of Vanaras in Ramayana which is believed to be near Hampi.

Pothana is believed to have been given direction by Rama to translate the Bhagavata Purana into Telugu here. In spite of its significance, the temple was utterly neglected. So, Ramadasu started to raise funds for the renovation and reconstruction of the temple. After he emptied his coffers and could raise no more money, the villagers appealed him to spend his revenue collections for the reconstruction and promised to repay the amount after harvesting crops.

As such, Ramadas finished the reconstruction of the temple with six hundred thousand rupees collected from land revenues - without the permission of the Abul Hasan Qutb Shah.

As the temple was nearing completion, he was perplexed one night about fixing the Sudarshana Chakra at the crest of the main temple. On the same night, it is believed that he saw Rama in his dream and asked him to have a holy dip in the Godavari River. When Gopanna did so the next day, it is believed that he found the holy Sudarshana Chakra in the river very easily.

Incarceration Edit The story continues that soon after the reconstruction, his miseries started. He was dismissed from his job by his enemies who spread a lot of fake news. They praise the Lord for all his mysterious ways in popularizing his devotees and Ramadas regularly sings to the Lord. The songs end in a state of total and unconditional surrender to the will of the Almighty. Lord Rama and Lakshmana , disguised as two young warriors, entered the bed-chambers of Sultan Tana Shah in the middle of the night.

The Sultan was bewildered at the presence of these charming but strange youngsters in his inner quarters at late night irrespective of tight security. They demanded and obtained on the spot a written receipt for the money. The receipt was shown to the jailer who released Gopanna that very same night. The next day, both Gopanna and the Sultan realized what had happened.

Gopanna did not care much for his release but was inconsolable at his not having seen his Lord even with all his devotion, while the Sultan was visited by the Lord. The Lord then appeared to Gopanna in a dream and explained to him the real reason for his actions and promised him salvation at the end of his natural life. The Sultan, in his previous birth, was a devout follower of Lord Shiva and had promised to perform Rudra abhishekham to Lord Shiva for days after which he was convinced that Lord Shiva would appear before him.

So the Sultan began performing the abhishekham but erroneously did it for days thinking that he had completed days. On the th day, enraged that the Lord did not appear, he broke the lingam into several pieces, upon which the Lord appeared and made the Sultan realize his mistake. As punishment, the Lord said that the Sultan, in his next birth, will be born as a non-follower; but, as a reward for his having performed puja for days, Lord Rama himself will appear before him.

The Sultan was thus convinced that what had happened was a miracle of Lord Sri Rama. He returned the entire money to the Bhadrachalam Temple. Since then, it has been the royal custom of the Hyderabad State now part of Telangana State to send gifts to the temple on the occasion of Sree Rama navami celebrations every year.
