June 14-18, 2017

April 20 – May 1, 2017 was a period of celebrations at Parakala Mutt. During this period, four tirunakshatrams were celebrated including those of our Prastuta Acharyan, Srimad Abhinava Vageesha Brahmatantra Swatantra Parakala Mahadeshikan on Tuesday, April 25 and the 100th year tirunakshatram of Srimad Bhagavad Ramanuja on Monday May 1. The celebrations were marked by recitations of veda, divya prabandham, itihasa and puranas as well as special homams and tirumanjanams to Sri Lakshmi Haygriva. A large number of devotees participated in these celebrations at Mysore and other branches, and received the blessings of Acharya and Sri Lakshmi Hayagriva.
A highlight of the tenth day of celebrations, Bhagavad Ramanuja’s sahasramana Utsavam was the release of ten granthams by our Acharyan. In addition to these ten granthams, two other works, namely (i) a Commentary in Tamil on Swamy Deshikan’s Yatiraja Saptathi by Srivatsankacharya Swamy, and (ii) Sribhashya Amruta Varshini, a Commentary in Sanskrit by NSR Swami for Sribhashyam, were also submitted at our Lakshmi Hayagriva Sannidhi. These will be published shortly.  To see the cover page and table of contents of six of these books, CLICK HERE. For some photos from the celebrations at Mysore and Bangalore, see the Gallery.
