HH announced good news that 108 inches Ramanuja statue in hard cement will be laid on the Vijaya Kiladri mountain which is in front of Sitanagaram asramam. This statue will last for atleast 800 years. While Ramanuja statue in Samshabad will be surrounded by 108 divya desams, the hill here will be consecrated with Vaikuntta Nattha, Vyuha Vasudeva ( 4 temples), Vibhava forms (dasa avatharas), 24 forms ( Kesava, Narayana, Madhava – 24 temples), exclusive temples for Lord Rama, Lord Krushna, Lord Venkateswara and Lord Varaha, Ashta Lakshmi temples, alwars and acharyas. A road is being laid and estimate is it will be completed within 2 weeks.
Vijaya Kiladri is mentioned in historical documents as a place of Lord Venkateswara as early as 1904. In 1961-62, HH Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji started to develop this temple and Lord Venkateswara was consecrated at that time. However, due to His involvement in the major 108 Sri Rama Krathu Programs, this project took a back seat. Meanwhile a few devotees constructed a temple for the Lord at the foot of the hill itself.
HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji, after seeing the history, took it up as a mission to develop this hill into a major spiritual and educational retreat.
Today, the foundation stone was laid for the first of the many temples, Sri Sita Rama Sannidhi, by MLA Sriman Gokaraju Gangaraju garu.
Lord Vishwaksena’s thirunakshathram is coming up in November. A devotee from Chennai already sponsored the Vighraham for the temple. Anyone who would like to be part of this magnanimous and divine effort are welcome to be part of it.
