Today was Devanattha Jeeyar Swamiji’s Thirunakshathram. After Santhi Sundaram Parayana, HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji gave mangalasasams to Devanattha Jeeyar Swamiji.
Speaking on this occasion, HH said, “We first met Devanattha Jeeyar Swamiji when he joined as a volunteer in 1991 during Gita Tarangini program. Later, he participated in many service activities. In 2004, Devanattha Jeeyar Swamy participated in Acharya Seva Yathra and travelled with us for one year travelling across the length and breadth of the country and Nepal too. He took Sanyasa Asramam 3 years ago and has been doing yoemen services. He conducted Godavari pushkarams in Mancharial very systematically and upto 25,000 people participated in thadiyaradhana everyday. He organized Ramanuja Masa thirunakshatrams wonderfully in many places. Now, He is overseeing the Ramanuja Sahasrabdi project and we pray to the Lord to bless Him with a long life to do more services and protect the sampradaya which is the need of the day. ”
Devanattha Jeeyar Swamiji attributed everything to the grace of Acharya and said that though He is the President of Sahasrabdi Project, it is the energy of Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji which drives everything forward. Devanattha Jeeyar Swamiji sought the guidance of the learned and mangalasasanams from Acharyas to march forward in serving the society.
