It was believed that Ramadasa received the Tharaka manthropadesam from Kabir Das. Ramadasa used the state revenue to renovate the Sri Rama temple in Bhadrachalam and was imprisoned for 12 years by the Nawab for this. He composed several songs on Sri Rama during this period. One night, the all merciful Lord Rama along with Lakshmana came in the guise of servants, paid the Nawab the six lakhs rupees owed by Ramadasa to the state. They obtained the release order from the Nawab, freed Ramadasa from prison life and disappeared. This episode has been referred to by Sri Thyagaraja in his keerthana "Ksheerasagarasayana" as, "Dhirudau Ramadasuni bandhamu dirchinati vinnanura Rama". Ramadasa's keerthana carried the mudra Ramadasa, Bhadrachalavasa, Bhadradri, Bhadragiri & Bhadrasaila.
