Hampi Mutt Seer Sri Jagadguru Vidyaranya Bharati Swamiji offers prayers in Tirumala Tirupati Temple on 16 June 2014.
HH Sri Sri Sri Jagadguru Vidyaranya Bharati Swamiji, the pontiff of Sri Virupaksha Vidyaranya Mahasamsthanam, Humpi Muttt offered prayers in the temple of Lord Venkateswara on Monday along with his disciples.
Earlier he was accorded temple honours by the vedic pundits at the main entrance of the temple on his arrival. He was also received by TTD EO Sri MG Gopal and JEO Tirumala Sri KS Sreenivasa Raju.
After darshan, speaking on this occasion at Ranganayakula Mandapam, the seer said, the Hindu culture and tradition is being regarded as the most pious system even by the Western countries. “The three sacred mothers who are safeguarding our rich culture are-Bharata Mata, Goumata and Gayatri Mata. A country will remain prosperous as long as we perform the homas and yagas, otherwise we will have to suffer from droughts due to scanty rains. I appreciate the efforts of TTD for performing the homas and yagas to appease Rain God. The other temples should also do their part for the benefit of the society”, he added.
