The past glory has returned: SriSamsthana
Vitla, Feb 11: Kings are protectors of Dharma. The word ‘Dharmabaara’ itself has become ‘Darbaar’. A Rajadarbaar is a court inclusive of the God, Gurus and Kings. That has taken place in Kundadka today. The glory of the past has returned as present glory, quoted Sri Raghaveshwara Bharati Mahaswamiji of Sri RamachandrapuraMatha.
Swamiji blessed us with the aashirvachana, at Rajadarbaar on the occasion of Punahpratishta Brahmakalashotsava of Kundadka Sri Vishnumurthy temple, Maada Shibarikalla Sri Malaraaya – Moovar Daivangala Temple, on Sunday.
After centuries, the historic darbaar of kings of Vitla was held. Kundadka is a place that gives prevalence to the Lord. The value for hereditary system is still present. It is being continued in the Vitla seeme and this is the evidence. The respectful village becomes the reason for supreme glory. The donations offered to the God will become the reason for development of the village. Rama is present inside the Grama. Pattabhisheka of Kings of Vitla should be conducted again. There is complete cooperation from SriMatha for this, said SriSamsthana.
V. Janardana Varma Arasu of the Vitla Palace was the President of the programme. Sri Mohanadasa Pramahamsa Swamiji of Manila Sridhaama’s Sri Mahalakshmi Kshetra rendered aashirvachana. Pattabhisheka of the king has to take place, glory of the palace should be brought back and everybody should cooperate to that, said Mohanadasa Paramahamsa Swamiji.
Sri Mohanadasa Pramahamsa Swamiji of Kaniyooru Sri Chamundeshwari Devi Sannidhi, Dr. Shashikantamani Swamiji of Balekodi Sri Shilaanjana Kshetra, Veda Murthy Kuntukudelu Raghurama Tantri, Veda Murthy Kuntukudelu Gururaja Tantri were present.
