Today (12-Aug-14) is the Madhya Aradhana day of Mantralaya Mahaprabhu, Kalpavriksha Kamadhenu Sri Sri Raghavendra Theertha Gurusarvabhoumaru. What an auspicious day for us!! I am happy and pleased to share some good news on this day to TN devotees and those in Chennai in particular. Though I am aware that you all will not be reading this blog today and will be busy in one of the Rayara Kshetras near your place offering your sadhane and seve to great Sri Rayaru. I am very sure you will all agree that, for us the devotees of Rayaru, not only Mantralayam, but every mutt where our Rayaru Mrithika Brindavana is present is a Kshetra!!!. There need not be an iota of doubt on this. As we have heard lot of miracles done by Sri Rayaru to His devotees from several brindavanas and how they are blessed. Indeed it is our fortune that we have such a Gurugalu in Rayaru who is so graceful and we should be all very proud of this for sure.
On this great day, the news I wanted to share is – Sri Raghavendra Saptaaha Mahotsava 2015 is going to be celebrated in Chennai @ DHARMAPRAKASH from Feb 19 to Feb 25. The duration of seven days is called SAPTAAHA in Sanskrit. And most of the devotees of Sri Gururayaru are aware of an interesting fact that there is a duration of exact one week between the Pattabhisheka day and Birth day of Sri Rayaru. Hence it is known as Sri Raghavendra Saptaaha. Obviously it is a very
special and auspicious week for all of us. So we can look forward to daily Samasthana Pooja by Srigalu, Pundithara Pravachana, Anugraha Sandesha by Sri Palimar Swamiji who is going to preside over the entire event, Lakshmi Shobhane pooja and Dasavani concerts and all. It is going to be an eventful week during February for us. So the countdown begins now and let’s all get together and make this Saptaaha Mahatsova in Chennai function a grand success.
