During that time, onefine morning when he opened his box of worshipping idols (devara pettige, which contains worshipping idolsand saligramas) he could not see his diety Sri Hayagriva idol, but through his vision he could realise what hashappened and started walking towards the Bhimarathi River. At the same time one farmer (krishivala, one whodoes the farming of land) came running towards him and told him that swamiji's horse has eaten his nursery plants of Bengal gram (khadale) resulted him huge loss and look to be depressed about the happening. Then SriVadiraja told him not to worry about the happening and not get wild about it and assured him that he willcompensate the loss. And also told him to show the place where his horse has eaten his plants in the morning.On telling this the saint started walking towards the farmers farm. On seeing the swamiji's coolness the farmer also accompanied him. While going towards the farm Sri Vadiraja started composing Sri Dashavatara Stotra inAshwa Dhati (raga of horse footsteps) with utmost devotion. During that time one white horse came near tothem with dancing, laughing and putting the footsteps according to the swamiji's stotra's tune. On seeing thehorse the farmer pointed swamiji towards the horse and told the swamiji it is the same horse which has eaten hisfarm plants.Then Swamiji assured him that he will take care of the horse and started going near to the horse, suddenly thehorse disappeared from the scene. The farmer was surprised and astonished about the happening, then the farmer and swamiji went and saw the place where the horse has eaten the bengal gram plants, there they could seewhere ever the horse has eaten the plants they saw golden bengal grams. The farmer was very surprised about itand recollected that the horse which he could see for the second time also disappeared and he could see thegolden bengal grams in his farm, made him very astonished, then swamiji told him that the horse which he sawwas none other than God and it is not normal horse and he has been blessed with the wealth and he can takethose and live happily. Then farmer has decided to take the golden wealth which was blessed by the God andgive all his lands as donation to the temple.Since that time this Stotra is considered to be initative to get love from Sri Hari and it has been a custom amongthe devotees to pray or worship through this stotra while concluding daily pujas or devara pooja. This practice iscontinuing in all vaishnas groups, temples, mutts etc. even today.
