Pe­javar seer re­leases vol­ume on Sri Krishna Matha

Pub­lished by The Hindu, it ex­plores re­li­gious and cul­tural ethos of the matha


Vishve­sha Theertha Swami of the Pe­javar Matha re­leased a spe­cial vol­ume, ‘Udupi Sri Krishna Matha: Liv­ing a Phi­los­o­phy’, pub­lished by The Hindu, here on Thurs­day.

The 92-page vol­ume is de­signed to be a col­lec­tor’s item, with a port­fo­lio of pho­to­graphs. It ex­plores the re­li­gious, spir­i­tual and cul­tural ethos of the Sri Krishna Matha here.

The 86-year-old Vishve­sha Theertha, who is on a his­toric fifth Paryaya ten­ure, com­mended The Hindu for bring­ing out the vol­ume, which he said would en­cour­age even more devo­tees to visit the matha and un­der­stand Dvaita phi­los­o­phy. Mad­hvacharya had em­pha­sised that along with prayers and wor­ship of the Lord, peo­ple should ren­der ser­vice to so­ci­ety. They should care for the poor and the dis­tressed. The ‘bhakti deek­she’ was not the pre­serve of a few but could be at­tained by any­one who fol­lowed the teach­ings of the Lord Krishna, he said.

Vish­waprasanna Theertha, ju­nior pon­tiff of the Pe­javar Matha, said that as the ti­tle of the vol­ume, ‘Liv­ing a Phi­los­o­phy’, in­di­cated, phi­los­o­phy should not just stay in a book but must be lived by the devo­tees.

S.S. Hegde, Re­gional Man­ager, Syn­di­cate Bank, and P. Vishvesh­war Rau, Se­nior Di­vi­sional Man­ager, Life In­sur­ance Cor­po­ra­tion of In­dia, were chief guests.

San­thosh K. Thampi, edi­to­rial an­chor of the vol­ume, spoke.

Col­lec­tor’s item: Vishve­sha Theertha Swami & Vish­waprasanna Theertha Swami re­leas­ing the spe­cial vol­ume on Thurs­day.
