Have honoured most commitments: Pejawar seer

Outgoing Pejawar Mutt seer Sri Vishwesha Theertha Swami has said that he has performed most of his commitments but believes that he could have still performed better.

Speaking to reporters, the seer said that he had taken up Rs 15 crore worth developmental works during his two-year term of which, Rs 3.5 crore has been spent on constructing the internal structure of Sri Krishna temple and Rs 3 crore on building Madhwangana, the structure above Rajangana. The other works include the construction of a guest house, construction of Yatri Nivas and Ananda Theertha School in Pajaka. Almost all works have been completed, he said. However, there are few more ideas and the amount donated by devotees will be spent on the development of Sri Krishna Mutt and other social causes, he said.

The seer said that after completing the Paryaya term, he would be concentrating on the completion of the hospital in  Marathahalli in Bengaluru, a girls hostel in Shivamogga and the development of the educational institution at Hubballi. He said he would take up many social causes with the cooperation of devotees.

He said Sudhamangala, a spiritual programme for young disciples, will be organised from January 1 to 10. The Mahotsava is held with spiritual discourses and disciples appearing for exams as part of the final phase of the course. He added that religious scholar Bannanje Govindacharya would be delivering the lecture on the occasion. The occasion would also mark the valedictory ceremony of the two-year Paryaya of the seer.

Sudhamangala Mahotsava would be held on January 5 in the presence of the seers of Asta Mutt. Besides, seers from Subramanya, Kanva and Bhimanakatte Mutts will be gracing the occasion. The Mangalothsava of the Vedas is held and also religious epics like Ramayana and Mahabharata would be recited.

In reply to a query, the seer said that he would not be adorning the Paryaya Peeta for the sixth time after 14 years as his health may not permit him to do so. He would be guiding his junior Sri Vishwaprasanna Theertha Swami in discharging his responsibilities. The junior has also agreed, the seer added.
