Shri chaganti koteswar Rao majorly talks about the puranas but only from
the advaitins veiw point. He often quotes rama krisha paramahamsa and
Ramana maharishi etc. His vinayam and shradha will teaching makes ones
heart leap with joy. I had the privilege of listening to his bagavtham
Shri garikapati narasimha rao has a bit different approach. He is very
witty, clever and is quite humorous about the present day situations. Being
an ardent devotee of lord Shiva, he often talks about vairagya and how each
one of us should behave with respect to present day scenarios.
Both however are strictly advaitic in teachings and agree and teach
Brahma-jiva aikya Jana as the means to mukthi while empahsisng on bakthi.
Indeed we telugu states have been blessed by such noble acharyas who have
stolen the attention of youngsters and the elders alike.
