Hare Srinivasa,

Vijayeendraru 1

Today is very important and auspicious day, as we celebrate the Aradhane of one of the greatest saints in Madhwa parampare, Sri Sri Vijayeendra Theertharu. He was a master of 64 arts and spent most of his time in Kumbakonam and established our Dvaita Siddhanta as the Supreme Tatva by easily winning over his opponents from other school of thoughts. Herein I have captured few links on the Great Gurugalu who is Paramaguru of Sri Rayaru. First comes the intro video on Kumbakonam Sri Mutt.

Sri Vijayeendra Theerthara Aradhane – 14Jun15

Hare Srinivasa,

Sri Vijayeendra Theertharu

One of the tallest Yatigalu in the great Madhwa Guru Parampare – Sri Sri Vijayeendra Theertha Swamiji‘s 401st Aradhane is celebrated today. Sri Vijayeendra Tirtharu saved Madhva Siddhanta from a very real and serious threat of extinction in South India, during the 16th century. Hence the followers of Madhva Siddhanta should always remain grateful to the memory of Sri Vijayeendra Teertharu’s great personality. He was a master of all arts. He was master in all 64 vidyas. That is why he was called as “Chatu:Shasti Vidya Praveena”.

Sri Pejawar Mutt in Kumbakonam

Hare Srinivasa,

Kumbakonam is known and very famous for its temples and mutts. It has been said in puranas that Kumbakonam is such a sacred place that if anyone has done any papa in other punya kshetras, then he need to come to Kumbakonam to get parihara. There is a popular saying in Sanskrit noting Kumbakonam as more sacred than Varanasi (Kasi). A sin committed at some ordinary place is washed off by a visit to a holy place;  a sin done in a sacred spot is washed off by going on a pilgrimage to Varanasi; if one dares to commit a sin in that sacred city too, that sin is wiped off at Kumbakonam; and any sinful act done at Kumbakonam is washed off there itself.

Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji, Pejawar Mutt

As we all know, it is the place where we have the moola brindavana of one of the greatest Madhwa Saint Sri Ajaya Vijayendraru  @ Solayappan street. And our Rayaru has spent most part of his early years here. This temple city is always flooded with devotees who come from everywhere. Sri Pejawar Swamiji has recently did the prathistapana of Sri Krishna, Hanuma, Bheema sannidhana in the Sri Krishna Mukhyaprana Mutt @ Kumbakonam. The new Mutt is ready to help the visiting devotees with Teerthaprasada and rooms for accomodation. Sri Swamiji has been setting up mutts in most of the piligrimage centres like Tirupati, Rameswaram etc in order to help the devotees and we should all be thankful to this great swamiji. It is our fortune that we live in the same period as him.

The contact details of the Pejawar mutt is given below. Bhakthas are requested to take note of this and make use of  this facility, when they visit Kumbakonam next and get the blessings of Sri Krishna, Sri Bheema and Sri Hanumanta devaru.

Amruta Vani by Pejawar Swamiji


There is a gravitational pull on the earth. It tends to pull everything downwards and make it fall. Attraction towards material world is also similar to this. It pulls a person down in spite of his desire to move up.

The Lord also has a power of attraction. It is different from that of the material world. While the material world has pull downwards, the Lord’s pull is upwards. While material attractions make a person fall, Godly attraction lifts a person to higher levels. We have to fall into the attractive pull of the Lord. Only this will make our life meaningful.
