Bengaluru: When every effort fails in life, many believe, that the blessings of the lord can uplift us from problems. Similar is the situation in the state of Karnataka, wherein consecutive droughts and other weather related problems have put people under severe stress. In order to revoke divine intervention for the welfare of the society, Sri Yadugiri Yathiraja Mutt of Melkote in Mandya in association with Tirumala Tirupathi Devastanams is holding a grand Sri Srinivasa Kalyanothsava on 18th March 2017, Saturday at Sheesha Mahal, Palace grounds at 6.00 PM.
The special event will be attended by devotees from all over. This programme is to commemorate 1000th years of religious guru Sri Ramanujacharya (1017-1137). Acharya Sri Ramanuja is a great philosopher and social reformer of 11th century. He created a history by admitting the so called down trodden of the society to the temples.
Sri Yathiraja Narayana Ramanuja Jeer Swami, present and 41st pontiff of the Sri Yadugiri Yathiraja Mutt said that Sri Mutt has been conducting various welfare activities since six years to commemorate the millennium year of Sri Ramanuja. “This unique celebration is not just about festivities/prayers/rituals, but to broadcast Sri Ramanuja's management capabilities, Value-based Rules, impactful social services & highlighting his humane characteristics and to empower all Indians in their socio-economic activities,” he added.
