The inaugural program took place in the presence of His Holiness Vidyadheesha Teertha Sripadaru of paryaya Palimaru Matha, His Holiness Vidyasagara Teertha Sripadaru of Krishnapura Matha, the junior seer of Pejavara Matha His Holiness Vidyaprasanna Teertha Sripadaru and His Holiness Vidyavallabha Teertha Sripadaru of Sode Matha. The seer of the paryaya matha inaugurated the program and delivered the anugraha sandesha. Shri Vageesha Teertharu gave us Shri Vadiraja gurusarvabhoumau. Shri Vageesha Teertha had the special avesha of Sri Madhvacharya. Shri Vadiraja Teertharu himself has prayed that may Shri Vageesha Teertharu dispel the dirt of our minds and drive away Kali who is a home invader. This exemplifies the superior stature of Shri Vageesha Teertha. During his 500th year aradhana, His Holiness in his anugraha sandesha has sought the blessings of Hari Vayu Gurugalu for all the special programs thus undertaken.
Owing to the 500th aradhana anniversary, several grand programs will be held at rajangana.
