Ekotthara Sahasra Kalasabhishekam and Manavala Maha Muni Thirunakshathram were celebrated grandly. Speaking on this occasion, HH shared the incident that happened in 1993 on the night of Deepavali.
HH’s perumal was abducted by some miscreants thinking that the deities were gold and planned to smuggle them. Shocked HH felt dismal at that moment and gave an ultimatum to Lord to return back in 3 days else He Himself would go to Him.
HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji could not bear the separation from the Lord He received from His acharya. That Lord who received prayers from HH’s acharya, Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji, the Lord who witnessed 108 Sri Rama Kratus, 108 Swadhya:ya Jnana Yajnas, First All India Vedic conference and many more activities is very dear to our Swamiji.
Lord listened to HH Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji’s plea and made Himself visible to the police inspector Sriman Koteswar Rao on the third day. After the Lord’s return, HH performed 1000 kalasas abhishekam. HH did not take water or prasadam all the four days. Only after the conclusion of the program, HH took some prasadam to the delight of the devotees. Since 1995 every year, this day which was an unfortunate day in 1993 became a festive day where Lord Sri Sitha Rama parivaram enjoys the oil massage, shower bath with all herbs, fruit juices, milk, curds, honey, sea waters, holy river waters, rain water, water condensed from the fog etc.
While expressing the events, HH recollected His conversation with Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji.
In 1979, when Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji was with Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji, HH queried Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji about going to United States as many Indians are residing there. Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji replied that there was a lot to do in India itself. Keeping that in mind, when Dr. Aamani from USA requested Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji to come to US on Diwali day in 1993, HH declined the invitation as Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji was not interested to go to US in 1970s.
As if disappointed at Swamiji’s decision, Lord took upon Himself and went on an expedition. HH understood the motive of Lord and prayed to kindly be with Him and that He would take the Lord where ever He wants to go. Since that day, Lord began His glorious journey, and HH is merely following Him. Huge programs such as Virat Parayana on Bhishma Ekadasi, Gita Jyothi and many mass programs were conducted. Swamiji expressed that it is the Lord who directs Him to do any activity and that He merely follows the great Sri Ramachandra.
All the devotees were moved listening to HH narration and chanted “Jai Srimannarayana ” , hailed victory to HH Swamiji and the Lord.
Sriman Koteswar Rao was honored on this occasion with a momento. The program concluded with HH sprinkling the holy water on all the devotees.
