Shri Sevadas Maharaj & Pohara Devi

Shri Sevadas Maharaj & Pohara Devi, Taluk- Pusad Sant Shri Sevalal Maharaj was born on 15.02.1739, on this Holy Land, to parents Shri 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 (Shri Sevadas Maharaj is often referred as Sevalal Maharaj or Sevabahaya by many banjaras) lived with his parents, at this place, up to 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 Kattafrom banjara community was the great devotee of 'Maa Aadimayashakti Jagadamba'. He is still worshiped by majority of bajaras from all over the India. The banjara's gather at 'Pohara Devi' every year on Rama Navami to sacrifice the goats to one of the assistant devil of 'Devi Jagdamba' called as 'Lukkad' as he demands for the same from the worshipers. No wish of any worshiper will reach to 'Maa Jagdamba' without satiating 'Lukkad'.
