StorylineStory of Saint Timma Nayaka, famously known as Kanaka Dasa.
Story SummaryThimma Nayaka, born as a son of a village leader is a warrior, Played by destiny, he falls in Love with the daughter of his father's enemy. They both fall in Love, unfortunately the rivalry between the parents does not allow the young lovers to be united. Thimma's father soon dies.

All of Thimma's enemies unite and start a fierce fight. When Thimma Nayaka is on the verge of death in the battle field he is miraculously saved by the Lord Venkateshwara and the Lord takes him away from the battle and makes him build a temple. Timma finds the treasure of Gold with which he builds the temple, henceforth he comes to be known as Kanaka Dasa.

Transformed by the grace of Lord, Kanaka becomes a real saint. Kanaka is criticized and tested by the upper caste people, while the common people accepted him as a saint.

Upper caste people tie him in the back of the Udupi Krishna temple and beat him for they thought he was fooling people with a saintly appearance in the public. To bless his Lord Krishna's statue miraculously turns around and the bricks in the wall fall away forming a hole in the middle of the wall so that he can see Krishna from where he is.

Stunned by this miracle all the so called religious people finally accept Kanaka Dasa to be a real saint.
