Today is a very auspicious day for us. Madhwa Navami is celebrated on Shukla Paksha Navami(9th day) of Magha maasa every year. It was on this day some 700 years ago, devotees witnessed a miracle in Sri Anantheshwara Temple, Udupi. When Jagadguru Sriman Madhwacharyaru was taking paata to his disciples, there was a sudden celestial pushpa vrushti happened from the skies and that covered Acharyaru fully. When the disciples cleared the flowers later, they found that Madhwaru is not seen and he has left for Upper Badari to be with Lord Sri Vedavyasa. Madhvacharyaru is still present even today in Northern Himalayas (Greater Badari) continuing his spiritual pursuit with Sri Vedavyasaru.
Let us listen to renowned Madhwa Scholar Sri A V Nagasampige‘s pravachana on Madhwa Siddhantha on this sacred day. Here are the links.
