His Holiness Sri Sri Jayendra Puri Mahaswamiji

His Holiness Sri Sri Jayendra Puri Mahaswamiji arrived last night with his entourage, including Brahmachari Venkatesh Chaitanya, Vaishnava priest, Chiranjeevi, Karnam Nagabhushanaiah Praveen Kumar Manjalagiri Sridhar and Mahaswamiji’s cook: Sathaiah Periyakaruppan

Mahaswamiji was last here in 2008.

Visiting the Shanmuga murthi under the banyan tree.

For those who may not know, His Holiness Sri Sri Jayendra Puri Mahaswamiji is the successor of Sri Sri Sri Sivaratna Puri Swami known as “Trichyswami”

Mahaswamiji is now the Kailas Ashrama Mahasamstan Pithadapati. Sri Kailas Ashrama is one of South India’s pre-eminent religious institutions.

The traditional pada puja at the temple.

Mahaswamiji is welcomed in the Guru Peetham and gives Bodhinatha some gifts.

Mahaswamiji always travels with the paduka of his Guru, Trichyswami, which he keeps with him.

Bodhinatha listens while Mahaswamiji relates the tales of his current world travels. He has also just published a large book, a copy of which will arrive soon at the Aadheenam.

Next we take our guests out to Iraivan and a visit to Muruga Hill. Mahaswamiji is much taken by the atmosphere and wants to go out to meditate everyday at Muruga Hill for the few days he is here.

We are happy to be able to give swami a serene environment surrounded by brother monks as a respite from his busy travel schedule.

Everyone has lunch together, including sweets brought by our guests.

Then in the afternoon Satguru Bodhinatha shared one of his Keynote presentations with Mahaswamiji and his group. The presentation is about the different Agama scriptures followed by the various Hindu sects.

Kailasa Ashram follows the Sri Vidya tradition and the Ishtadevata of their temple is Goddess Rajarajeswari.

Bodhinatha is hoping to collect knowledge from Mahaswamiji about Sakta Agamas and their prescriptions for worship.
