Oct 12 2009: Krishna River Puja for the welfare of humanity by HH Sri Ahobila Ramanuja Jeeyar Swamiji

Photos Here

A mass Prayer was conducted on the river bank of Krishna at Sitanagaram, Guntur Dist. near Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji Asram , under the guidance of HH Sri Ahobila Ramanuja Jeeyar Swami, with about 1000 people praying the river with manthras, lighting up lamps and offering them to the river. VT volunteers, students from Ideal Public School and many people from around places participated in this event. On this occasion Ahobila Ramanuja Jeeyar Swami said that river is our mother and it never shows its anger on us. Nature though it is capable of doing every thing, serves the living creatures with humbleness and love. Man though not capable of anything, living at the mercy of the Nature, tries to show his supremacy over the Nature instead of being humble, respectful as if he can destroy or abuse everything in the Nature, as he likes, by the way of pollution, deforestration etc. If once this attitude is changed we can live happily without any such calamities. When mother gets totally vexed up, tries to show that She is powerful and Man has to understand this. Also, during this time, people who have the real concern to serve the society respond and looking at them others too have to learn to be so.

With this message of Sri Ahobila Ramanuja Jeeyar Swami, people were happy and prayed the rivers to once again forgive for all their mistakes and make the lives of people and other living beings happy and prosperous.

Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji blessed the tiny tots and addressed the gathering saying that the need of the hour is that these young minds should be seeded with value-based education and Acharyah would impart moral, ethical and social values to the children. He also added that this pre-school would bridge the gap between lowkikam and sampradhayam and spread wisdom to all parts of the society. He explicitly explained the need for wisdom in today's world full of chaos and he also defined what is knowledge, why we should seek it and how we should nourish knowledge. He stated that we were not born to learn, but we learn to live happily and to react to situations of crisis. With wonderful narrations, Sri swamiji presented simple ways to lead a peaceful spiritual life. He defined the quality of a person in sampradhayam as a clean drainage which purifies all the dirty things of a house, likewise a real Srivaishnava should purify the society and remain pure. Sri Swamiji blessed every child to explore our sampradhayam and seek Jnanam.

Acharyah School is based on seven subjects as sapthaprakaras in our Srirangam. The subjects are Languages, Arithmetic, Exercise of practical life, Sensorial Geography, Science and Culture. Appropriate teaching equipment and visual aids were exhibited on the inauguration day. Everywhere, the lowkika curriculum was related to Srivaishnava sampradhayam. An Olfactory sensorial exercise was done based on Periyazhwar's poochoottal pasuram. Geography was made easy with a Srirangam model. Divine rhymes were customized from normal rhymes connecting our sampradhayam. Numbers and shapes were also designed to teach sampradhayam.

A small spiritual exhibition by the little children of Srimaan Bhattar Kuzhaam as Lava-Kusha and Azhwars was an added gem to the crown. On the whole, by the divine grace of Periya Perumal and Periya Pirattiyar Acharyah will be a school for leaders. Sri Parasara Badri Narayana Bhattar Swamy, Founder of Srimaan Trust thanked the gathering at this divine endeavor and felt that both Jeeyar Swamiiji's holy blessings would be a gifted boon.

March 9th, 2009, Houston, Texas

Sriman Bangar Reddy and Mrs. Manjula Aaloori, members of our JET Houston family, recently celebrated the Birthday function of their two daughters Divya(9) and Yasodhara(1) in a wonderful and peculiar way!

Smn. Bangarji couple are serving JET USA Inc. organization since 4years and they educated their children also in such a way that they can also take part of the service activities at this very tender age itself. So they planned the birthday celebration in such a way they can serve the society. They arranged the Birthday party in India House at Houston and arranged all sorts of fun for kids including a magic show where kids enjoyed a lot.

Divya(9) inspired by her parents, instead of opting for gifts from Guests on her birthday, requested the Guests to give donation to help VTSeva school for Tribals and school for Blind in India. By doing so she raised $3286.00 for that purpose. She felt very happy to celebrate her birthday for a noble cause.

She called her Grand Ma in India to say that she has collected money to help the small tribal students and blind students in India and she was so happy of sharing her joy with those children.

Sriman Bangar Reddy says, "charity should start from our Home. The parents of VTSeva should inculcate in our children the philanthropic element within and let children feel the joy of sharing and giving to other children who are less fortunate".

Let us all work towards the vision of our Acharya Sri Sri Sri Chinnajeeyar Swamiji of "serving the needy is our privilege".

Audience were enchanted at HH Sri Swamiji's talk on the importance of Telugu and the unique amicability of Telugu people. HH said Telugu tongue can speak any language very easily with the natural accent, which is not the case with the other languages. Sri Swamiji said that conferences such as ATA should help educate and encourage the youth to understand the culture of India that has Spirituality as its inner value. If that inner value is not recognised then any outer development will not lead to achieve the best in one's life. Telugu language is very near to the Vedic language and it is only language that is protecting the rules of Vedic system. Also it is the Telugu people who are protecting the Vedic culture in its original way. The highly scientific way of Vedic system is greatly promoted by the Telugu practices and basically the language. HH said that Telugu people have two great qualities which the west has already recognised viz., sincerety and hardworking for the actual purpose.
