As you are all already aware, Sri Madhva Navami is fast approaching and this year it is on 24th January 2010, fortunately a Sunday. This year is even more joyous as we will have the opportunity of listing to Sri (Dr.) Prabhanajanacharyaru on Sri Sumadhva Vijaya between 20th January 2010 (Wednesday) - 24th January 2010 (Sunday) right here at Sri Raghavendra Swamy Mutt, Malkajgiri.
Dr. Prabhanajanacharyaru immediately consented on ITMS's invitation to be part of the grand celebrations, especially after the wide support and participation during Nirantara Gnana Yagna on Sri Rama Avataara at Malkajgiri this April.
It is indeed an honor for all of to have such an eminent scholar addressing us during this unique paravakaala. Please do not miss this unique and wonderful opportunity indeed !
We are also scheduling pAta karyakrama during the early mornings during his stay and possibly pAta for everybody (esp ladies) on Harikathamurthasara during the afternoons.

The workshop was a success with Sri Padmanabha Acharya conducting it very well. While close to 15 bhaktas from different parts of the city participated as actors, another 10-12 listened to the instructions of Acharya from the sidelines. People started assembling from 8 AM and by 9:15 everybody had completed snAna, sandhyAvandana etc and were ready for the main event to start. Copies of Sankshipta Devapuja Paddhati in telugu by Pujya Sri Maligi Bhimachar(He was previously editor of Telugu Tattvavada magazine) were given out to all participants. Acharya went through the different upachAras one by one and explained the meanings of the mantras that are recited at each stage. He also gave details about different sampradayas where applicable.
Special emphasis was given on Naivedya especially on the anusandhana and chintana that is to be followed during that time. It is during Naivedya that we offer all our belongings and actions done during the whole day at the feet of the Lord, while He is feasting on His svAkhyarasa. The bhakta has to meditate upon the Aikya(identity) of his Bimba murthi, the rupa of the Lord in the idol(s), shAlagrAma and the rupa-s of the Lord in all the naivedya items offered.
By 12:15 PM, everyone had finished performing mangaLArati and were tying up their devara pettige-s. Sumptuous teertha prasada was served shortly after that.
Sri Padmanabhacharya clearly explained both the mantra and the tantra aspects of devara puja and was very patient in providing clarifications to all the queries of participants. We once again offer sAshTAnga pranamas to Acharya.
All the participants personally expressed their thanks to ITMS for conducting the workshop and wished that many more such events be conducted on a regular basis.

Shri Vijayeendra Theerthara Aaradhane was held on 21st June 2009 at the newly constructed house of Shri Shyam Tribhuvan. ITMS pitched in the last minute with several of it’s members participating actively in the program. The program started off with Shri Sumadhva Vijaya parayane, followed by Bhajane and then pravachana on the life history of Shri Vijayeendra Theertharu by three pundits, which included Pt. Sri Nagendra Prasada Acharya, Pt. Sri Sukeshacharya & Pt. Sri Padmanabhacharya. They all spoke about the life and achievements of Shri Vijayeendra Theertharu and his unique contributions in the forms of 104 works of extremely high value. They also spoke of his strong acumen in defeating other schools of thoughts and defeated his great contemporaries like Appaiah Dikshitar. This fountain of gnanakarya followed with Theertha Prasada for all devotees.
Please find some pictures taken during the event below.

First of all I thank all the ITMS members who had given continuous support and put efforts to make NGY at Malkajgiri today a great grand success.

I would like to inform all our members that Sri Madhva Navami celebrated today by ITMS in association with Mantralaya Rayara Mutt, Malkajgiri was very colorful and highly successful. It is as if Sri Madhvarayaru himself directed & blessed the entire event and made it a grand function to reckon for all the sadvaishnavas in the twin cities.
Several sevas were offered to the lotus feet of Sri Madhvarayaru in parallel,
1) Sri Sumadhva Vijaya Parayana (all 16 sargas) led by Sri Jayaramachar and Sri Sukeshachar Jalihal in dhati. Several Shishya’s of Jayaramachar participated in the parayana, which in our opinion was one of the biggest seva’s.
2) Pallaki with Sri Sarvamoola Granthas was arranged & we took it on an Utsava Seva around a section of the area around Malkajgiri. Several Sadbhaktas came forward to perform Pallaki Seva to Sarvamoola granthas.
3) Rathotsava of Sarvamoola Granthas around the Rayara Sannidhana.
4) Bhajana seva by Bhajana Mandali’s from Sainikpuri and Malkajgiri. Several sumangali’s sang the tunes of lore of our Dasa’s in the seva of Sri Hari & Vayu.
5) Samoohika Pavamaana Homa led by Sri Rameshachar, about 70 people came forward to participate with Sankalpa in the homa karyakrama. All of us gathered for poornahuti and it zenith’ed into a fantastic event.
6) Panchamrutha Abhisheka with a grand recitation of Sri Hari Vayu Stuti.
7) Finally, it was the grand finale with Mangala of the pravachana of the great grantha Sri Mahabharata Tatparya Nirnaya, which was hosted by ITMS for 12 grand days. The mangala pravachana was delivered by Pt. Sukeshachar Jalihal.
Dr. Srinivasachar Varakhedi, his father and Sri Jayaramachar presided over the function as chief guests and delivered their ashirvachanas, which was well received by all sadbhaktas.
Alankaara and Theerthaprasada then followed this.
On behalf of IT Madhva Sangha, we thank the Rayara Mutt authorities for having helped us out of the way in making this a very grand function.
I also thank our ITMS members who participated in large numbers starting from envisioning, planning and execution to grand execution of one of our grandest festivities this calendar year.
Comments and suggestions are most welcome. Some snaps from the event can be found below:
