These are the words from Jagadguru Shri Madhwacharya. The sacred Ganga is the great mother for persons like ‘ Devavratha’ (Bheeshmacharya). The effort of rigorous penance from ‘Bhageeratha’ brought the holy Ganga to cleanse the worldly land. On the banks of the river Ganga, the great saint ‘Shuka’ read ‘Shrimad Bhagavatha’ before the king ‘Parikshita’. ‘Ajamila’ repenting for his sins was purified by Ganga. The discussions between Vidura and Maitreya flowed into ‘Gnana Ganga’ in the presence of Ganga. The three avataras of Vayudevaru: Hanuma – Bheema – Madhwa brought immense purity and holy status to the Ganga. With all these background in mind, Jagadguru Shri Madhwachar ya proudly said:
“Nasyateertha Saleelasya Samam Vaha”.
Haridwar, which is the doorstep for reaching ‘Badarinaryana’ is the place where the Ganga lives daily. In such a sacred place at Hardiwar, during June-2006, through the “Haridwar Hanuman Pratishthan” of Sri Palimaru Mutt, under the leadership of Sri Sri Vidyadheesha Teertha Swamiji, a gigantic 32 feet single stoned idol with all the 32 special features of Sri Pranadevaru (which is the first avatar of Sri Vayudevaru) has been instituted. In the northern India, Jagadguru Shri Madhwacharya had travelled extensively and was very influential in spreading the philosophical preachings of Dwaita Siddhanta. Over the period, this influence is appearing to be sliding down. In order to spread the message and the preachings of Dwaita Philosophy, it was the greatest desire by our Guruji Sri Sri Vidyamanyateertha Sripadaru to establish an ‘Adhyatma Kendra’ on the banks of river Ganga.
PLANNED WORKS AT THE ABOVE “ADHYATMA KENDRA”
- Building a temple of 64 feet height for the 32 feet height idel of Sri Pranadevaru.
- ‘Ganga mangala taranga bhangadaprantasu Sri Hariveshmakritsamaha | Yadgataikatamarvanalekhaka……….’ It is said by Narayana Panditacharya in Sri Madhwa Vijaya that, on the banks of river Ganga, even if a word from the “Sarvamoola of Sri Madhwacharya” is inscribed, it is equivalent to building a temple for “Sri Narayana”. If the entire “Sarvamoola” is able to be inscribed on the banks of river Ganga, it would bring immense blessings. In order to inscribe these ‘Sarvamoola Granthas’ and spread the message of ‘Madhwa Siddhanta’ in the northern India – “Sarvamoola Bhavana”
- In order to spread the message of ‘Madhwa Siddhanta’ to the coming generations on the lines of ‘Gurukulas’ – “Sri Vidyamanya Vidyapeetha”.
