NGY: Varaha Avataara at Vanasatalipuram

23rd December 2007 was one more milestone for ITMS at Vanasatalipuram, where itorganized it Nirantara Gnana Yagna (NGY) with the Shri Varaha Avatara Pravachane by Pt. Shri Nagendrachar. The program was well received and had a participation of close to 40 people from in and around Vanasatalipuram. Pt. Shri Nagendrachar delivered his pravachana in usual exemplary style giving the Hari Bhaktas a good overview of Shri Varaha Avatara. Some of the important aspects that Shri Pt. Nagedrachar covered included his explanation of Adi Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakasha (born to Kashyaparishi and Dithi) and how they were razed to protect the bhu (earth) from going into paatala samudra. He also reiterated the fact that Havis and Homa articles originated from Shri Varaha devaru and that donating 3 types of yeLLu (sesame seeds, red, white & black) is extremely beneficial in warding off evils and ill effects.

Overall it was extremely beneficial program for the attendees and Shri Satyaranarayana, the Manager of the mutt promised all possible support for Vanastalipuram going forward and ensured that he will completely support all our programs there.

Kurmavatara happens only during the Raivata(5th) and Vaivasvata(7th) manvantaras of every Kalpa.

2. The meaning of the word kUrma - One who removes the bad waves of Samsara.

3. The KurmapurANa being the 15th of the 18 MahapurANa-s. Specific prameyas for which SrimadAcharya quotes this purANa as reference. One of them being the 5 dinakalpa-s during which Sri Hari Himself takes up the post of Vedavyasa.

Kurma & Matsya Avataara at Lingampally Rayara Mutt

We were waiting for the things to kick off in the main Madhwa center of the City "Lingampally". The wait is finally over and we had successfull pravachana of the 1st and 2nd phase of NGY i.e., Sri Matsya 'ka' & Krurma rupa 'ka' Avataras of HIM.

Pt. Nagendra Prasad Achar (above) as fluent as ever with his trade mark style delivered a wonder full discourse about both the avtaras in very stringent time conditions. We did have some objections or should i say remarks of having each avatara for two days and why are we hurrying up in lingampally.

What we learnt: In brief Matsya(Madah-tsyah) avatara means The One who incarnated to finish/end ego...."Madha vannu nashana(tsyah) madavanu" Kurma(Ku-urm-aha) avatara signifies The One who incarnated to kill or end the bad waves (waves in the sense bad thoughts and all...) "Ku(bad) urm(waves) vannu savaha(end) madavanu" There was a decent audience, as expected senior citizens were out numbering!
