Udupi, Jan 18 : The ceremony of ascending the sacred 'Paryaya Sarvajna Peetha' by Adamar Math Sri Eshapriya Theertha Swamiji was held here on Saturday. After the vibrant Paryaya procession, the Admar Swamiji proceeded to the Kanakana Kindi and had a 'Darshan' of Lord Sri Krishna from there. He then went to the Sri Chandramouleshwara and Sri Ananteshwara Temples, where he had a 'Darshan' of the deities and offered prayers.
The Admar Swamiji was received by the outgoing Palimar Swamiji, who was waiting at the Temple entrance after performing the 'Visarjana Puja,' the last prayer he offered to the presiding deity as the Paryaya Swamiji. Soon, the incoming Swamiji had a glimpse of the presiding deity Lord Sri Krishna through the 'Navagraha Kindi' inside the Sanctorum and prayed for the success of his two-year term. The 'Akshaya Patra' or the perennial bowl, the 'Sattuga' (ladle dating back to the times of Madhwacharya) and the keys to the sanctum sanctorum were also handed over to the incoming Swamiji.
Outgoing Paryaya Swamiji Sri Vidyadeesha Theertha Swamiji of Palimar Math then offered the sacred seat, 'Paryaya Peetha,' to Eshapriaya Theertha Swamiji. The Swamijis of other Ashta Maths were felicitated at the 'Badagu Malige'. The Admar Swamiji's ascension gives him the right to worship Lord Sri Krishna and manage the affairs of the Math for the next two years. (UNI)
