Sree Raghavendra Swamy, the great mystic saint is the 17thdescendant in the lineage of Sri Madhwacharya, is the exponent of Dwaitha philosophy. He is an incarnation of Bhakta Prahalada, who while entering into “Samadhi” alive in 1671 A.D. assured his devotees of his beneficence for the next 700 years. Since then, Countless devotees have been the recipients of his grace and benediction. Sri Raghavendra Theertha – the patron Saint at Mantralayam is verily the Wishing tree (Kalpa Vruksha), the divine cow (Kamadhenu) and the divine Jewel (chintamani), all in one, fulfilling the righteous desires of all who visit Mantralayam and pray for his benign benevolence. Even prayers at home and other various mrithika brindavanas receive the similar contingence. Mantralayam, the pious religious institution was rocked by massive flash floods in October, 2009, a major catastrophe, causing total Destruction to the Mutt, resulting in a huge financial loss in Crores of Rupees. However, within a short span of time, with the generous contribution by the ardent devotees and disciples of Sri Rayaru and Governmental assistance, it has become possible in restructuring the Mutt and brings the same back to the normalcy despite reeling under odds and adversity.
Dear Devotees & Disciples of Sri Rayaru!
As desired by the celebrated pontiff of this Mutt, H.H. Sri Suyatheendra Teertha Swamiji, who attained Vishnupada on 21.03.2014 and also as per the profound wish of H.H. Sri Subudhendra Teertha Swamiji, the present peetadhipathi, we have taken up several projects, as detailed under.
Construction of 200 Rooms
We have taken up 200 rooms for construction which is under fast progress. This project costs around Rs.12 Cores. This project is taken up to meet the need of increasing visit of devotees to Mantralayam. Devotees may donate for rooms by investing Rs.4.00 Lakhs (non-AC room) or Rs. 7 Lakhs (AC room) and be a donor of a room.
Construction of GURUKULA
“Na Vidhyadhana Sadhrusham Trilokya Annya Vidyathe”.
It means Among “Danas Vidyadaana is super in the world”. According to a scholar, Mutt means the place of a student’s residence moulded as treasure of knowledge. Sri Gurusarvabhowma Samskrutha Vidyapeetham at Mantralayam has been in action for the last many years and playing a vital role in building up of the excellent team of students who have gained proficiency in Sastras, Vedas and Pourohithya. Thus emerged trained students are being sent all over the country to fetch the needs of Vedic education and religious training to nourish and flourish the Hindu sanatana dharma. The students are being provided free accommodation, meals, cloths, medical care and books, apart from imparting standard education. Aiming to provide a state of art of education to the students, the institution has come up with the new construction of Gurukula with a project costing of Rs. 10 crores. The Devotees may contribute generously to this project.
CONSTRUCTION OF NEW shila Mantapa
The institution is providing an Unprecedented Golden opportunity to be a part and parcel of a stone structure with pillars of Ancient Architectural Model costing Rs. 10 Cores to the Holy Garbha Gruha Mantapa complex of Sri Raghavendra Swamigalu. This opportunity is a Unique Shiladana of one Stone of Rs. 5000/-. Generous contributions through you and your family and friends are solicited. Apart, the continuous Annadhana, Go Samrakshana and Parimala Educational Institution with residential facility (Sri Rayara mane) are running successfully with the generous contributions of the devotees of Sri Rayaru all the time.
CONSTRUCTION OF PARIMALA TEERTHA
Parimala Teertha is a Pushkarini (Sacred pond) that carries Guru’s Teppotsava (raft procession). This beautiful Pushkarini is being built adjacent to the Tulasi gardens that exist to offer Tulasi for Nitya pooja to Moola Rama as well as Rayaru. This project is in its final stage and once its completed raft procession Teppotsava will be offered to Gururajaru on daily basis.
Even though the climate of Mantralaya is suited for growing plants and trees, due to non-implementation of a proper project, Mantralaya has remained a burning cauldron. In the coming days there will be a systematic plan to grow trees and plants suiting the climate in about 25 kms radius surrounding Mantralaya. It will be maintained with the help of devotees and will ultimately help us to combat the heat with a green cover.
SUPER SPECIALITY HOSPITAL
Rayaru is well known as the doctor who wards off all diseases therefore it is befitting to build a hospital in his name in Mantralaya. This will strengthen the already operating Sri Sujayeendra Arogyashala. The intended hospital will be a ray of hope for economically backward people within a radius of 75 kms, around Mantralaya with a project cost of Rs. 25 crores.
(Ambulance & Trauma Services) Keeping in mind the construction of a hospital the Matha will be planning to have 4 fully-equipped ambulances soon. The matha has planned to see that the vehicles would be operational for full 24 hours in a day. This service would be free keeping in mind the economically challenged people.
(Exclusive guest houses for Physically Challenged) Chetana Enclave will be a group of guest houses specially designed for physically challenged. Currently Mantralaya has limited facilities for physically challenged in the rooms for the tourists. In the future the matha will be building fully equipped guest houses not only to provide them with more facilities but also to reduce their dependence on others. Comfortable seats, wheelchairs, washrooms and also vehicles to transport them to the Matha will be provided.
EXTENSION OF VYASA TEERTHA PROJECT (Augmentation of Drinking Water)
As per the wishes of Sri Swamiji’s Guru, the already built Vyasa Theertha water reservoir is doing a good job in providing water for the whole Mantralaya town. In 2013 this facility was extended to places in and around Bellary by Shri Suyateendra Theertharu. Now as per the wishes of his Guru the current Peetadhipathi Sri Subhudendra Theertha is planning to extend the same to a several areas of Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh also including surrounding villages.
DHENU RAKSHINEE (Protection of Cows)
The present Goshala is sheltering over 900 cows. Sri Subhudendra Theertha had already commenced the task of upgrading this Goshala in all respects. Equal importance will be given in the protection of non-milkable cows and milkable cows at our Goshala without descretion.
The Raghavendra Swamy Matha is well known for book publications. The books published by Shrimatha are more than any other religious institution. This task is highly essential to continue the existence of the Sanatana Dharma. Sri Subhudendra Theertha would add more value and continue this noble work. There have been plans of getting rare and old manuscripts and they would be researched and published and made to reach the readers. There is a research centre set up for this purpose and it will be developed further.
KALYANAMASTU (Marriage halls at subsidized prices)*
Marriage halls will be constructed at various places where the Matha has its branches for the use of devotees who are economically backward. The pricing of the halls will be affordable. This will help people living under hardship. Facilities would be made for Paurohitya and hosting of the marriage in deserving cases for families whose economic condition is extremely challenged. (* Conditions Apply)
VIDYA VARIDHI (Adopting students/schools)
Under this Vidyavaridhi plan, students who are from poor economical background and schools who are in socially remote places would be adopted by the Matha. This plan would be effective in stopping the denial of good quality of education in rural areas. Students would be chosen and then adopted by the Matha till the student reaches the college level. Also schools in socially backward areas would be adopted by the Matha. All necessary facilities and equipments will be provided to such schools. This would indeed make it attractive for students to come to the schools from the surrounding areas.
JALA RAKSHINEE (Water resource and rain water harvesting)
One important life saving resource in the world which is fast disappearing is water. Preservation of water is the need of the hour. Sri Subhudendra Theertha Swamiji has planned for projects in rainwater harvesting and protection of interior water resources in and around Mantralaya to avoid this major problem in future. Rain water harvesting will be compulsorily done at the Matha and all its branches.
ESTABLISHING NEW BRANCHES
Sri Raghavendra Teertha Gurusarvabhouma is well known for His mercifulness and compassion. He himself will come in form of Mrittika where ever His devotees give him humble call. Hundreds of Mrittika Vrindavana established at nooks and corners of India which are providing platform for spiritual needs of millions of devotees. H.H. Sri Swamiji has decided to further strengthen the same by establishing branches of Mantralaya Matha at various places of India. The required efforts will be initiated very soon at the following places.
7. Ahmedabad and
8. Khargar (Navi Mumbai)
The present branch Matha at Jogeswari is under Reconstruction. New and huge complex of Sri Raghavendra Matha will be soon completed at this place. Also Srimatha has under taken construction of big Kalyana Mantapa and Dormetary at Tirumala branch. These complexes will provide clean and descent transit accommodation for the pilgrims who rush to Tirumala.
CENTRE FOR ORIENTAL STUDY & RESEARCH
Sri Raghavendra Swamy Matha stands at the place of a pioneer when it comes to publication of ancient literature. The Matha has a rich resource centre for such studies. A full fledged research centre is functioning for the past several decades. His Holiness Sri Swamiji is intending to upgrade this research centre with latest technology that enables conserving ancient manuscripts. Devotees may offer us old Manuscripts if they find them unattended. The Srimata will take proper care of the same and publish.
All the above projects are very important to bring an eternal solution for ongoing growth of Mantralaya kshetra. Therefore this is an appeal to all the devotes to be a part of these various holy projects. Your donations will be accepted whole heartedly and will be reciprocated with acknowledgement and Prasadam also with the blessings of Sri Raghavendra Swamiji and the present peetadipathi H.H.
