HH Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji’s Thirunakshathram is celebrated with grandeur and pomp by thousands of ardent devotees who came from far and wide. Early in the morning HH woke up to the ‘veena na:dam’ . As he came down from his chamber to grace the devotees who have been waiting from the wee hours in fog, they greeted him with lamps in their hands and jai srimannarayana. He prostrated before his mother and took her blessings. She applied oil thrice on his head and gave him mangala harathi singing songs. HH spoke vividly on the importance and strength of mother’s blessings explaining how Ammagaru in 1974 when asked by HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamy for her approval to train her young son her answer was – ‘You do whatever you think is good’, thus leaving no room for selfishness or narrow thinking. Since then she has been encouraging him and guiding him to walk on the path of HH Peddajeeyar Swamy with dedication. He cited the example of Sumithradevi who guided Lakshmana to serve Sri Rama and expressed his gratefulness to have her blessings and guidance.
