Sri Pejavara Swamiji’s visit to our house

Recently, my uncle conducted the Sama Veda Samhita Yaga at our home in Nellitheertha. On that ocassion, we had requested the junior pontiff of the Pejavara Adhokshaja Matha of Udupi, Sri Sri Vishvaprasanna Theertha Swamiji to come home. He agreed and we got the opportunity of performing Pada Puje to him.

Sri Swamiji also had brought home the idols of the Matha, Sri Vittala and did a puje at our residence. In the above photo, you may notice that the silver stand used to keep the Saligramas is mostly empty because the Saligramas had been kept near the Yagna Kunda.

After the Puje, Sri Swamiji gave a very useful talk to all of us highlighting some of the necessary practices that every Madhva should undertake. This was followed by Mantrakshate to all of us.

Sri Swamiji, under the guidance of his Guru – the great Sri Sri Vishvesha Theertha Swamiji, is running many projects for the community’s welfare. He is running a Go-Shale and also a Vedic School. More details can be obtained from the Matha website.

The matha is doing some excellent work in the Go-Shale protecting hundreds of cows in the region. The website also has details on how one can contribute to the project. I am sure many will find this a worthwhile cause to donate and help protect cows.
