HH Sri Jeeyar Swamiji’s Badari Ashtakshari Kshethra Anna da:nam Programme
Badari, a holy place on the Earth, floating spiritual vibrations down to the Earth from a height of 10,250 feet in Himalayas. The Great Narayana Manthra was revealed to this world from here only. Our Ashtakshari Kshethram situated on Nara mountain,welcomes all the pilgrims with good shelter and free food (Prasadam). Badari Nath has a beautiful Temple of Lord Narayana, opened only for summer 6 months and remains closed during winter. Badarinath as said in our Puranas, is a place where Lord Narayana is in the form of Mountains doing penance for the peaceful world.
It is the place where we can find the Vyasa cave where Maharshi Veda Vyasa has performed penance and divided the whole mass of Veda into four main divisions in the beginning of the Kali Yuga, for the sake of the convenience of the coming generations. He envisioned Srimad Bhagavatham and after presented it to the world as it is, he felt extremely satisfied that which he couldn’t get even after presenting 18 Puranas and 18 Upa Puranas and also 545 Bramha Suthras and their explanation that were unquestionably accepted with a single tone by all the austere sages and saints of traditional Vedic lineage, of that day, all over the world.
Our Ashtakshari Kshethram set up in this holy place by HH Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji in 1950s is a boon to all those devotees who come on pilgrimage to this place. HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji performed Narayana Ashtakshari Koti Havana Maha Krathu here in 1952 ! Since then Annadanam is performed to Sadhus in our Ashtakshari Kshethram every year during all the open days.
There is a place called Bramha Kapalam here where the curse to Lord Siva was redeemed and people perform special rites to the departed souls after performing them to those departed souls at Gaya. It is said that they’ll be relieved from the pangs of rebirth and reach divine abode.
