Shri Vidyasagara Theertha Swamij of Shri Krishnapura Paryaya Matha performed Mahapooja on the first day of paryaya to Sri Krishna.
The Ceremony of ascending the Sacred “Paryaya Sarvajna Peetha” by Shri Krishnapura Matha Shri Vidyasagara Theertha Swamiji was held on Tuesday 18th Jan 2022 at Udupi Sri Krishna Matha.
After the Paryaya procession, the Shri Krishnapura Swamiji proceeded to the Kanakana Kindi and had a ‘Darshan’ of Udupi Lord Sri Krishna. Then he went to Shri Chandramouleshwara and Shri Ananteshwara Temples where he had a ‘Darshan’ of the deities and offered prayers.
The Paryaya Shri Krishnapura Matha Swamiji Shri Vidyasagara Theertha was received by the outgoing Adamar Sri Eshapriya Theertha Swamiji who was waiting at the Temple entrance after performing the ‘Visarjana Puja,’ the last prayer he offered to the presiding deity as the Paryaya Swamiji. Soon, the incoming Swamiji had a glimpse of the presiding deity Lord Sri Krishna through the ‘Navagraha Kindi’ inside the Sanctorum and prayed for the success of his two-year term.
The ‘Akshaya Patra’ or the perennial bowl and ‘Sattuga’ (Ladle dating back to the times of Madhwacharya) and the keys to the sanctum sanctorum were also handed over to the incoming Swamiji. The outgoing Paryaya Swamiji Sri Eshapriya Theertha Swamiji of Adamar Math then offered the sacred seat, ‘Paryaya Peetha,’ to Vidyasagara Theertha Swamiji. The Swamijis of the other Ashta Maths were felicitated at the ‘Badagu Malige’.
