Hari Sarvothama! Vayu Jeevothama!
It was a pleasant sunny morning on 14 Nov 2010. Volunteers of the LHVSMP Samiti started arriving from 6AM to make the preparatory arrangements. Counters were set up for receiving the bhaktas and providing the badge, Towel printed with the name of the Samiti and a water bottle. Seperate counters were arranged for the registered and non-registered persons.
Bhaktas started arriving to the temple by 7 AM. Samiti Volunteers directed the people to the temple premises and everyone was seated in order inside the temple. The parayana slated for 14th Nov 2010 at Sri Anjaneya Swamy Temple Nanganallur commenced
as per schedule at 8:00 A.M. sharp, with 320 Madhwas for the first Avarthi. Mahila volunteers took charge of the counter once the parayana has started and also prepared assembling together the prasada packets. More people started pouring-in in next 30 mins.
The second avarthi had 476 members and the gates were closed at 8:30 A.M. It was really a wonderful atmoshpere at 8:30 A.M. as the temple was flooded with 476 madhwa participants. Two avarthis of HVS Parayana and one avarthi punascharane was performed. Although punascharane was not in initial plan, temple authorities have requested the Samiti to perform one. Eminnent scholars like Sridhar Upadhyaya, P.N. GURURAJAN and Kanchi Varadachar participated adding more aura to the grand event. The Samiti wishes other eminnent scholars residing in the city to take part in such future programs. This parayana was performed for Lokashema where each Madhwa should participate voluntarily.
The Anjaneya Temple authorities had made extensive arrangements for the parayana. Excellent support was extended to the samithi. They fed food for more than 600 persons, though they were informed only 500 persons would turn out.
Nanganallur Ragavendra Swamy Mutt had provided their support helping the outstation bhakthas and also had arranged for Vrata theerthaprasada.
The arrangements for this Mega event commenced as early as 1st Sep 2010 itself. Handouts, Banners, Media advertisements and announcements in THATHVAVADA and SRI SUDHA magazines were done for registration of members for the Parayana. Oct 17th was supposed to be closing date for the registration. Till 7th Nov, only 200 applications were received for registration and later the count increased to 376 in last 1 week. But, on the day of the Parayana the SPOT registration counter was overflowing with good numbers and the samithi had to arrange for extra special counters where close to 169 registations were made. The request for the early registration was sought only for enabling the samithi for making arrangements as well as for the distribution of prasada. The LHVSMP samithi was not intersted in sending back any persons who come to the place without registration or sending back the parayana performed bhaktas without giving them the prasads. In future, the samithi requests members to co-operate and adhere to the request of the samithi. The samithi thank all the 476 madhwa bhaktas who thronged at the early hours of Sunday and making the function grand success.
One Raksha, 1 Enthro darana Hanumantha Yanthra, 1 book(Sri Hanuma Bheema Madhwa Moola Mantra Japavidhanam), small laminated photo of Sri Raghavendra swamy performing pooja to lord Rama, one photo of Dharapuram Anjenaya swamy, plantains, betel leaf and Dakshina were provided as prasda from the Samiti. Anjeneya Swamy Temple had given betel leaf, plantain, dakshina with Vada to all the persons who were present on that great parayana occasion. It was a rare sight to see close to 500 Madhwas chanting Harivayusthuthi in chorus.
The LHVSMP Samithi thanks each and every one for the support extended for the great function and feel sorry for the inability to thank each and everyone individually.
The samithi thank SRI SUDHA, THATHVAVADA dvaita magazines and the local News Papers for their support extended for this great unity.
