    H.H. Sri Ragotamar, one of the most popular Madva saints, has his moola brindavana in Thirukovilur in Tamil Nadu (close to Villupuram). Every year his aradana is celebrated in a grand manner on the danur masa dwadasi day (a day after ‘vaikunta ekadasi’). This year it fell on 29-Dec-09 and as always it was celebrated in a grand manner in all temples where his brindavanam was there.

    A glimpse of one of the aradana celebrations in one such place last month can be seen in the following youtube video:

  2. The following are some of the interesting links that I frequently visit or update based on my observations:

    a) The official Sri Raghavendraswamy mutt website at:


    b) A handy reference to Dvaita philosophy:


    c) My personal experiences (or miracles, I should say) that I have experienced with our Guru Rayar. While this link talks about the experiences of last one year alone approximately and that too mostly about the incidents in getting this work up and running, there are a lot of other experiences in the last 2 decades that I have been fortunate in realizing him….



  3. By the grace of Sri Hari, Vayu and Guru Rayar, had the pleasure of being in Mantralayam at the beginning of this month – on 5th and 6th May. At that time, one of the pictures that I had taken when Mangalarthi was performed to the moola brindavanam can be viewed below:

    Please see this short video and get the blessings of Sri Hari, Vayu and Gurugalu….

  4. By the grace of Sri Guru Rayar, on the completion of our father’s abdik ceremonies, had an opportunity to visit Mantralayam on 23-Jun and 24-Jun (Saturday and Sunday). Some of the videos that was shot by my daughter in mobile phone among the jostling by the huge crowds during our short trip to Mantralayam are in youtube with these URL’s:
