Sri Vadiraja Jayanthi

Today, Magha Masa – Shukla Paksha – Dwadashi, is the auspicious ocassion of Sri Vadiraja Jayanthi – the day when the great Dvaita saint was born. I have written a couple of times earlier about some of the great incidents associated with him so I won’t repeat the same again. He was a great saint, philosopher, poet, social reformer and administrator.

Sri Vadiraja Swamy performed the Paryaya at Udupi 5 times (the last time was through his Shishya – while he stayed back at Sode), changed the system of Paryaya from 2 months to 2 years, introduced the elaborate Paryaya festival ritual, introduced the chariot festivals at Udupi, mandated that Porridge and Rotti be offered as Naivedya to Lord Krishna at Udupi in recognition of the great Haridasa Sri Kanaka Dasa, included the Koteshwara Brahmins under the Madhva fold, established the Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Temple, and numerous other social activities and reforms.

  1. SHREE GANESHAYANAMA I OM NAMO NARAYANAII

    DEAR ALL !

    I OFFER MY PRANAMS TO LORD NARAYANA & ALL BHAKTAS.
    FOR THE LAST FEW DAYS I AM LOOKING FOR THE ENGLISH VERSION OF “VAIKUNTHA VARNANE” BUT COULD NOT FIND YET. THE COSMIC CREATION ACCORDING TO VAISHNAVA LITERATURE IS SUPER EXCELLENT THEORY. DIFFERENT ACHARYAS IN DIFFERENT AGES DESCRIBED ABOUT IT. SOMEHOW I BELIEVE THESE ARE EXPRESSED MORE IN ” VAIKUNTHA VARNANE”. IF SOMEONE HELP ME TO FIND THE SAME IT WILL BE VERY FORTUNE TO ME.

    REGARDS
