Sri Sripadaraja Aaradhane & Educational Support Program - A success

Namaskara All,
With great pleasure we would like to let our members know that Sri Sripadarajara Aradhane along with the aaradhanes of Sri Satyasandha Theertharu, Sri Krishnadwaipayana Theertharu, Sri Satyaabhinava Theertharu and the Educational Support Program (ESP)/Vidhyarthi Vetana Karyakrama conducted at Sri Krishna Mutt, Kondapur was a grand success. The day started off with Sri Hari Vayu Stuti punascharane lead by Pt Sri Lakshmi Narayanachar at about 7:30 AM. Later we congregated for an excellent session of Bhajane. At sharp 10:30 AM Pt Lakshmi Narayanachar started his pravachana on Sri Satyasandha Theertharu and Sri Krishnadwipayana Theertharu, he mentioned about the great tours undertaken by the exemplary pontiff during his days establishing and reaffirming the hold of our Madhva Siddhantha, achar also detailed about the significance of Mahishi where Sri Satyasandha theertharu entered the brindavana. Later Pt. Sukeshachar Jalihal spoke in snippets about the vidhyaguru of Sri Vyasaraju himself. He spoke about the uniqueness of Sripadarajaru and his rajayoga and how he helped protect and promote our Siddhantha.

After this brief talk it was the turn of Dr. Nagesh, the world renowned Hypnotist and Psychiatrist, who spoke on the personality development. He spoke about how one should lead life by having control over ones attitude and by “sharing knowledge”. He also touched upon Vedic Hypnosis and Psychiatry, which is emerging now in the scientific realm, whereas it has existed in our country for thousands of years. The audience was captivated by his talk and was extremely well received.

At about 1:00 PM after the end of the sessions, we hosted our Educational Support Program 2010, where in we supported four very deserving Madhva students who were in need for financial assistance in order to pursue their education. These students were supported to the extent of 10,000/- each to partially meet their educational expenses.

In order to protect the privacy of our student beneficiaries, ITMS does not wish to reveal their names or other personal details.
