Procession event for Sri Pejawara Swamiji, Sri 1008 Sri Vishwesha Theertha @ Malkajgiri

The 1st day of Sri Pejawara Swamiji, Sri 1008 Sri Vishwesha Theertha Sripadangalavara visit to Malkajgiri prantha went off well. Sri Swamiji is sitting in for his 73rd Chaturmasa at Hyderabad this year.

There was a huge congregation of Vaishnava Bhaktas at Sri Raghavdendra Swamy Mutt, Malkajgiri where a ceremonial bhiksha was performed during the morning hours followed by Theerthaprasada. During the later part of the evening the Malkajgiri bhaktha vrunda lead by Sri Vikram had organized a procession for Sri Swamiji from Sri Raghavendra Swamy Mutt to Sri Uttaradi Mutt Malkajgiri. The Bhajane Mandali lead by Smt. Srikala was ecstatic and sang with lot of devotion in spite of intermittent but very heavy rains. The procession ended at Sri Uttaradi Mutt where the Swamiji was recieved by Pt. Sri Padmanabhacharyaru. Swamiji performed Mangalarathi to the installed presiding diety Sri Venugopala Swamy. This was followed by a brief pravachana from Pt. Sri Lakshminarayanacharya. Swamiji later blessed the gathering by delivering his pravachane on the first two shlokas of Bhagavata.

Later during the evening, Sri Swamiji performed Tottilu seva at the residence of Sri Sudheendra Srinivasan, Jt. Sec. ITMS.
