Paadukaasahasra Parayanam at Mysuru (On Tele Bridge) on ShravaNam, Monday May 31, 2021, 11.00 AM – 4.30 PM
With the Anugraham of our Acharyan and Sri Lakshmi Hayagrivar, there was a very successful tele-parayanam of Swami Deshikan’s Paaadukaasahasram, enthusiastically participated by over 70 participants. This function became possible due to the untiring efforts of Sri Dayanand Alwar who is visiting Mysuru from San Diego, USA and several local  shishyas. It is our hope that this utsavam will be the forerunner of several such parayanams to be arranged at the Mysuru Mutt premises in the coming months after the restictions due to the COVID 19 are lifted.

Tiru Adhyayanotsavam Celebrations at Parakala Ashram & Lakshmi Hayagriva Sannidhi, Charlotte, NC. Dec 25, 2020 – Jan 16, 2021

We are happy to announce that with the Anugraham of our Acharyan, we successfully celebrated the Fourth Annual Tiru Adhyayanotsavam at our Charlotte Ashram from Dec 25, 2020 – Jan 16, 2021. Because of the restrictions due to COVID 19, the celebrations were restricted to a small group of reciters at the Ashram but more than 40 reciters  from remote locations joined online on many days making the whole function an enjoyable experience. We thank all the participants who made this function a great success. We  are especially grateful to our Aradhakar Sri Ranganath Bhattar, and the local c-ordinators at Charlotte, NC for planning and organizing the function efficiently.

U.Ve. Kodiyalam Venkatacharya Swamy
We are extremely sad to report that Sri U.Ve. Kodiyalam Venkatacharya Swamy, a senior Aradhakar at  Parakalaswamy Mutt at Mysore attained Acharyan Thiruvadi this morning (24th May, 2021). This swamy was performing kaimkaryam at the Mutt for more than two decades. 
Sri Ue.Ve. Venkatacharya Swamy was a Nyaya, Vyakarana and Vedantha vidwan. He learned from  renowned scholars like Sri Ue.Ve. Saragoor Varadhacharya Swamy and Sri.Ue.Ve. Kothimangalam Varadhacharya Swamy. He learned veda adhyayanam from his father Sri Ue.Ve. Srinivasacharya Swamy. 
His Samashrayana and Bharanyasa acharyan was Srimad Abhinava Ranganatha Brahmatantra Swatantra ParakalaSwamy (33rd peethadhipati).
Sri Venkatachari Swami  was a retired principal of Sri Maharaja Sanskrit College, Mysore. He also served as a secretary in the Karnataka State Agama Board. He received a Karnataka State Award for Sanskrit pracharam in the state.
A humble, devoted and selfless Bhagavata, the Swami was an exemplary Srivaishnava. We pray to Sri Lakshmi Hayagreevan and Acharyan to give strength to his family to bear his loss. Sri Venkatacharya Swami will be greatly missed by all the staff, shishyas and abhimanis of the Mutt.
