Pushyarka Yoga on 27Jul14

Hare Srinivasa,

As most of you are busy with the planning and preparations for the most awaited Aradhana of the year, the 343rd aradhana of Sri Raghavendra Theertha Gurusarvabhoumaru from 11 to 13-August, here comes a gentle reminder that coming Sunday(27th July) is a special day to earn Sri Rayaru’s blessings. We have Pushyarka Yoga on this day as the Pushya Nakshatra is coming on Sunday. Also note this is the only such occurrence in this JAYA year.

Pushya is a Sanskrit word, meaning “to nourish”. The ruler of Pushya is Saturn or Shani and its deity is Brihaspati or Jupiter, the Guru of wisdom. When the Pushya Nakshatra falls on Thursday or Sunday, astrologers and religious minded people consider it as favourable and call it Pushya Amrit Yoga. This day (Pushya Nakshatra) is an auspicious day to see, take blessings and remember your Guru or spiritual teacher. It is in this manner that Pushya has an auspicious link with spiritual and religious matters.

We all know that one of the greatest devotees of Rayaru was Sri Appanacharya. He brought out the benefits of remembering Rayaru on such a day or on Pushya Nakshatra.

In his Raghavendra Stotra, Appanacharya says,

“Soma surya parogo cha pushyarkadhi samagame,

Yo anuthamam idham stotramashtothara satham japeth,

Bhootha praetha pisachadhi peeda thasya na jayathe”

What this means is that when there is a lunar or solar eclipse or during Pushya Star on Sunday, any person reciting the shlokas of Raghavendra Swamy or remembering him, will not have any kind of trouble. No ghost, devil or/and any evil will trouble a person who recites the Raghavendra Stotra 108 times or performs the japa 108 times.

So let us all make use of this auspicious day by getting together in front of Sri Rayara Mruthika Brindavana and chant the famous Sri Rayara Stotra as many time as possible and do our sankalpa for our sadhane during the Aradhana period on this day and pray for Sri Rayaru and Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu’s blessings to make it happen.

Hare Srinivasa,  

As you all are aware Chrompet Sri R Sridharan, Managing Trustee of Chrompet Madhwa Seva Trust is doing yeoman service to Madhwa community by coming up with the Acharya’s Magnum Opus Sriman Mahabharatha Tatparya Nirnaya in Tamil for the benefit of Madhwas in Tamilnadu who doesn’t know Kannada language. So far Six volumes are released and you will be glad to note that Part 7 is under print right now.

Sri Sridharan has released another book in Tamil recently and it is Sriman Madhwa Vilasa. The moola grantha in Sansrkit was written by Sri Satya Theertharu, direct and priya disciple of Vishwa Guru Sriman Madhwacharyaru.

This book discusses the life history of Acharya Madhwaru like the great mahakavya Sumadhwa Vijaya by Sri Narayana Pandithacharyaru. Madhwa Vilasa is a small grantha with just 3 chapters and 148 shlokas. The author of this grantha Sri Satya Theertharu is important sishyaru of Madhwaru and was blessed to listen to Aitheraya Upanishad paata from Madhwaru 3 times. He has also written the Bhrama Sutra Bhashya of Madhwaru.

Pejawar Swamiji 80th Year Celebrations @ Udupi

Hare Srinivasa,

Hope many of you are tuned in to the updates and news from Udupi, about the grand function being held there in the last 3 days, the video clippings of which are available in the web. All the Swamiji’s including the Mantralayam Rayar Mutt was in Udupi to participate in this event and be part of this rare honor. The guests list includes BJP stalwart Sri LK Advani, Karnataka CM Sri Yedurappa, Sri V S Acharya (state Education Minister) and Sri Ashok Singhal of VHP.

Sri Vishvesha Theertha Swamiji, popularly known to all as Sri Pejavara Swamiji, is a highly admired and respected religious leader who is widely credited as the initiator of many social reforms. In fact he considered to be the true spiritual ambassador of Hindus of our country. He is known for his bold initiatives, revolutionary thinking and humanitarian activities and approaches, aimed at the betterment of the society.

Needless to say that all Madhvas are very much proud of Shri Swamiji and his achievement in last 70 years of sanyasi Life. It would be very difficult to imagine the status of madhvas today without Shri Swmaiji’s effort and the activities / projects all these years. As it was told, Pejawar Swamiji is getting younger with every passing year and becoming more active than before.


Pejavar Srigalu with Rayar Mutt Swamiji

The present younger generation needs to be proud, to have seen swamiji, talked to him, listened to him and participated in some of his activities to the extent possible. We are indeed blessed and fortunate to have a swamiji like him guide us and grace us all through these years. Shri swamiji is a diversified personality and people from all walks of life, from common man to political bigwigs reach up to him for guidance and direction. The foresight and vision he has with regard to the mankind and society are simply great and beyond our imagination.


108 Yagna in Udupi for Global Peace

The various institutions he has founded speak for itself. Among them the PoornaPragna Vidya Peeta(PPVP) is the jewel in the crown of his contribution to the society.  He has conducted Sudha Mangala 29 times. Yet he is so simple and easily accessible to all and mixes freely with everyone without any inhibitions.

Here are some of the felicitations made by eminent people:

Vishveshateertha Swamiji Asset to Hindu Community’   – Rayar Mutt Swamiji

Swami Suyatindrateertha of Mantralayam Rayar Mutt said that Vishveshateerta Swamiji of Pejawar Mutt is an asset to the Hindu community. Drawing comparisons between Swami Vyasaraja, who was one of the most important sages in history, and Swami Vishveshateertha, he said that the latter has been following the spiritual path of Swami Vyasaraja. By organising the Bhakti Namana programme, the followers of Vishveshteertha Swamiji are acting on the spiritual teachings preached by the latter, he said.

‘Despite Vishveshateerta Swamiji’s advancing age, he has been covering the length and breadth of our country, in order to create awareness on Hinduism. The community acknowledges the spiritual contributions of Swami Vishveshateerta,’ added Swami Suyatindrateerta.

It is my privilege – Paryaya Shiroor Sri Lakshmivara Theertha Swamiji

It’s my previlege that my guru Pejavar Swamiji’s 80th Birthday is celebrated during my 3rd Paryaya Tenure. Centenaray year celebrations will be celebrated again during my 4th Paryaya Tenure (year 2026).

We have acquainted with the fact that Sri Madhwacharya was offering poojas at 3 places in a day(Udupi, Bantwal and Subramanya). Pejavar swamiji is traveling and  meeting people  at New Delhi in the morning, afternoon at Chennai and evening at Bangalore in a day.

Pejavar swamiji is still young at 80. He has guided me and taught me to balance ” Sihi”  and “Kahi”  (Sweet and Bitter)

Advani showers praises on Pejawar Swamiji

Pejavar Swamiji was an icon of not just Hindu community but he has accepted the entire range of human society as his domain, which is characterized by love for all communities including backward communities, minorities and tribals which was a matter to be commended exclaimed BJP leader Mr. L K Advani. He was participating in the 80th birthday of the Swamiji HH Vishvesha Thirtha of Pejavar Math Udupi.

He said his life was a saga of sacrifice in which he has blazed a trail of knowledge, compassion and altruism, we should learn from his life like we did from the lives of great sages that we have only seen in textbooks, Mr. Advani said. His contribution to the society and its development was so vast that one life was not enough.

“I have had an opportunity during my political life to study his achievements but I was not able to comprehend fully his ways of austere living and high thinking, rarely we find a person of his quality and we all should accept him as a teacher” he added.

A role-model for all Seers –  Suttur Swamiji

Shivaratrishwara Deshikendra Swamiji of Suttur Mahasamsthan, Mysore, said on Sunday that Viswesha Tirtha of Pejawar Math was a role-model for all seers in the country.  “The Pejawar seer’s life is the best example of how one should live and involve oneself in activities to create religious awareness among people”, he said.

Swamiji led an ideal life as per Bhagavad Gita – Sri Ravi Shankar

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar of Art of Living, Bangalore, said that Sri Vishvesha Tirtha had led an ideal life. He was following the ideals as mentioned in the Bhagvad Gita. “He is an inspiration to all the seers in the country,” he said.
