PROSHTAPADI BHAGAVATA Pravachana by Sri Sri Vidyasindhu Madhavatheertha Swamiji

Hare Srinivasa,

The auspicious Bhadrapada Masa is starting on 22-August and it is time for PROSHTAPADI BHAGAVATA Pravachana. As we know Bhagavatha Purana is the most revered and is the First among the 18 Puranas by Lord Sri Vedavyasaru. It is said that Bhagavatha Shravana is highly meritorious and we are advised to do that all through the year. And the next 15 days – starting Bhadrapada Shukla Pratima to Pournima called as Proshtapadi, is prescribed in our doctrines to recite or listen to Bhagavata Purana.

Greatness of Sri Rayaru

Hare Srinivasa,

Today is very important and holy day for us as the Aradhana Mahotsava of Mantralaya Mahan Kalpavriksha Kamadhenu Sri Sri Raghavendra Theertha Guru Sarva Bhoumaru is celebrated everywhere with utmost devotion and grandeur. I am sure most of you would have been waiting for this day since the start of Hemalambi Samvatsara to do your yatha sakthi seve and do samarpane at the holy feet of Sri Rayaru. The great Rayaru is always graceful and there need not be any doubt that he will grace us for sure and all our wishes are fulfilled.

Sumadhwa Vijaya says “even if we do smarane of the Sarvajna Peetha used by Jagad Gurugalu Sriman Madhwacharyaru, we will be liberated“. Similarly we have to listen to greatness of our gurugalu like Sri Rayaru again and again and that will do wonders and help us to proceed forward in our sadhane marga and go to the next level. On this auspicious day, let us listen to what Sri Sri Suvidyendra Theertharu and Sri V Prabanjanacharya has to say on the greatness of Sri Raghavendra Swamigalu.
