Who is Seva Bhaya?.............

Sant Shree Sevalal Maharaj was born on 15.02.1739, on this Holy Land, to parents Shree Bhima Nayak and Dharmini Yaadi (Mother). At this time this location was popularly known as Ramagundam or Ramji Nayak Tanda (Ramji Nayak is Grand-father of SevaBhaya Ji, who came to this location with 360 families of his Tanda and about 4000 loaded cattles). Ramji Nayak Tanda when deserted, by end of 18th century the local population built a village known as Chennarayani Palle. This land now falls in the revenue village of Peddadoddi, Taluk/Mandal: Gooty, District Anantapur (A.P.).

Sevabhaya lived with his parents, at this place, upto the age of 12. He bathed in KALO KUNDO (transparent clean water of natural spring water pond), Worshipped in Chanakeshva (Shiva) Temple on the top of Chandrayana Gutta (Hill), near Ramji Nayak Tanda grazed his cattles in ZOOMRI/ZHANDA JHOL (forest of Palms). All these relics and monuments are existing even today. Banjaras and Non- Banjaras in the locality hold Bhima Nayak Katta (platform) inhigh esteem. Since residue (ORE) from the womb of Sevabhaya's Mother is buried below this Katta (burying ORE under the ground is the tradition of Banjaras, after child's birth). Therefore Banjara people hold this Katta with high reverence. Shri Bhima Nayak (father of Sevabhaya Ji) delivered his judgements to Banjaras of his and neighboring Tandas from this Katta.

There is a piece of land of 18 acres, next to dilapidated Ramji Nayak Tanda and the same is shown in revenue records as NAYAKUNI BHOOMI (Land of Nayak).

After lot of research works and explorations by many research scholars, linguists, historians, particularly by Banjara Dharmik Parishad of Bangalore, as well as found from Banjara folk songs and folk lores sung and oral histoy as told by Banjara, for the last 200 years, in narration and in praise of Sevabhaya's life and deeds. It is mentioned that GOOTY-BELLARY MA JANMO SEVABHAYA (meaning: Sevabhaya was born at GOOTY-BELLARY).
