Sri Rajarajeshwari Mutt of Kshatriyas gets first seer

Bharatharaje Urs was rechristened as Sri Vishwadhiraja Theertha Sripada by Paryaya Pejawar Mutt seer Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swami  after offering ‘Sanyasa Deekshe’ (initiation to monastic order).

Sri Vishwadhiraja Theertha Sripada would be now considered as the ‘peethadhipathi’ of the newly-established Sri Rajarajeshwari Mutt for Kshatriyas.The 34-year-old new seer, who is an electronics and communication engineer from Manipal Institute of Technology, hails from Chikkamagaluru.

His parents are Hemraj Urs working in MCF, Mangaluru, and mother S P Jyoti, a former employee of Health Department. The pre-rituals of the ceremony began from Saturday and were led by priest Gopalakrishna Acharya.

On Saturday, rituals like ‘Pavaman Homa’ and ‘Tarpana for God and Goddesses’ were held. These rituals are held to make him come out of the guilt  or sin committed in the life time prior to the ‘Sanyasa’. On Sunday, the various rituals continued and made the new seer to break all his relations with his birth.

The seer on Sunday performed ‘Ashtaka Shraddha’, ‘Agni Karya’ and ‘Shakal Homa’. He later shaved his head and beard and performed ‘Sakrata Jalapana’. He also performed ‘Jagarana’ all night and had only curds and baked rice as food.On Monday, the seer performed the rituals in the wee hours before taking ‘Sanyasa Deekshe’ from Pejawar seer.

‘Veeraja Homa’, ‘Tatva Mantra Homa’ and ‘Kalsha Sthapana’ were held on Monday. Finally, he took a holy dip in Madhwa Sarowar near Sri Krishna Mutt. He declared that he is no one to his yesteryear parents and he is no more to them. He offered ‘Tarpana’ to all the God and Goddesses. He also discarded all his lavishness and clothes, finally adorning the orange cloth (Kavi) as his attire.

He also performed the ‘Homa’ which signified his complete detachment from the worldly pleasures and his acceptance of the spiritual and ritualistic life.

First step

Following all these rituals, the new seer came to Paryaya Pejawar seer and sought his blessings through the offering of ‘Deekshe’ and ‘Manthropadesha’. The Pejawar seer gave ‘Deekshe’ by keeping a ‘Saligarama’ as mark of the blessing on the head of the new seer and offered him the ritualistic ‘Abhisheka’. He was christened as Sri Vishwadhiraja Theertha Sripada.

Later, speaking to the mediapersons, the Pejawar seer said the new seer was in touch with the mutt. He is a disciple of the Sanskrit College. He strongly believes in Madhwa Siddhantha, he added.

“He is determined to be a seer. He has also the dream of serving society through the spiritual endeavors,” Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swami said. He lent all the support to the new seer.

Sri Vishwadhiraja Theertha Sripada said world is full of sadness. Grievances have overclouded world and people are becoming greedy. Environment is polluted due to development. The development which has created the destruction of environment is totally meaningless. The people are becoming materialistic. The spiritual life is missing. There is a need to reinvent spiritual means, he added.
