Venkateswara Suprabhatham was composed by the revered, Prativadi Bhayankara Annan Swami (P.B.Annan born in 1361), a disciple of the celebrated vaishnava preceptor, Manavala Mamuni. It is sung and played in the hearts of lakhs of people all across the world. It is the foremost seva offered to Lord Venkateswara in the hills of Tirumala. The stalwart scholar of Sri Vaishnavism, maha mahimopadhyaya P.B. Annagaracharya Swami (born in 1891) is in the same lineage of the Suprabhatham composer, P.B. Annan Swami. He wrote a unique letter about Pedda Jeeyar Swami praising his glory.

Today, as we celebrate the 41st Paramapada Mahotsavam (the day Swamiji left this world in physical form and reached Sri Vaikuntam) of Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji, let’s recollect the letter that P.B.Annangacharya Swami wrote to T.K. Gopalacharya Swami in praise of Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji. The letter states that Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji is a Satya Sankalpa, one whose will tranforms into successful completion – specifically those thoughts aimed at the well-being of all of existence. He states that there should be no question in consecrating Swamiji’s murthi  not only in 1, but all  in all of the 108 Divya Desams


Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji spent the day at Nadigaddepalem. This is where Pedda Swamiji’s Brundavanam deity (the place where his final physical form was laid to rest with great reverence for worship and inspiration) exists in its present-day glory.

Swamiji reminded thousands of devotees assembled about Sri Pedda Jeeyar Swamiji’s commitment and belief in Vedic scriptures, how he became the pride of a nation by applying the essence of Vedic wisdom in the troubled areas of the society. Be it fighting for the freedom of our nation, donating his entire land for dalit communities decades ago, reforming prisoners, constructing 108 Rama stupas across the nation, or even the historical 1008 kunda swadhyaya jnana yajna. In addition, he conducted the first ever all India Veda summit in Delhi, Ashtakshari Koti havan in Badrinath, appreciations from Indira Gandhi, P.B.Annan and many more leaders and scholars …
