Admaru Mutt senior seer hands over power to his junior

Admaru Mutt seer Sri Vishwapriya Theertha Swami and junior seer Eshapriya Theertha Swami speak to media persons in Udupi.

Admaru Mutt seer Sri Vishwapriya Theertha Swami has handed over the reins of mutt administration to his successor 33-year-old Eshapriya Theertha Swami.

The senior seer said he decided to hand over the powers to his junior as he is keen on spirituality and wants to spend his life performing devotional activities.

Henceforth, his junior will be in charge of mutt and the properties, he added.

He said, “I will be always there for Eshapriya Theertha Swami when he will look after the administration of the mutt, perform puja and manage financial affairs.

For the time the being, I will take care of the educational institutions under the mutt. However, Eshapriya Theertha Swami will take over these educational institutions in a phased manner.”

The 60-year-old pontiff said it is high time he retires.

The forthcoming Paryaya in January 2020 will be of Admaru Mutt.

The issue about who will be adorning the Paryaya Peeta is yet to be decided, he said.

The senior pontiff said he is extremely proud of the junior who will be henceforth called as the Mathadhipathi.

Eshapriya Theertha Swami said that the senior seer’s decision has come as a surprise to him.

“Though I am reluctant to accept, I have no way other than obeying the senior seer’s instructions,” he added.
