Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Sringeri anoints his successor

Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Sringeri anoints his successor

sri kuppa venkateshwara prasada sharma

Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peetham Sringeri, Karnataka:
jagadguru shankaracharya of sringeri anoints his successor
Sri Adi Shankaracharya, India’s greatest philosopher-saint who revived Sanatana Dharma (or Hinduism as it is called today) and the Upanishadic philosophy of Vedanta,established His first (of four) and foremost center of learning — Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peetham at Sringeri — in the 8th century CE. Friday, on January 23, 2015, continuing this unbroken Guru-Shisya lineage that stretches directly back to Sri Adi Shankaracharya, the 36th Jagadguru Shankaracharya of Sringeri Sharada Peetham, Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji anointed His successor.

dakshinamnaya sri sharada peetham sringeri
In a traditional ceremony, the Jagadguru initiated Brahmachari Sri Kuppa Venkateshwara Prasada Sharma into Sannyasa and bestowed upon him the Yoga Patta (monastic name)of Sri Sri Vidhushekhara Bharati.
dakshinamnaya sri sharada peetham sringeri Over 40,000 people from all corners of the country and abroad, descended upon the sacred town of Sringeri to witness this rare event. Several dignitaries from all walks of life also attended this occasion.

dakshinamnaya sri sharada peetham sringeri The elaborate Shishya-Sweekara ceremony began on Jan 22. The successordesignate,Brahmachari, performed Homas, fasted all day and stayed awake throughout the night.

dakshinamnaya sri sharada peetham sringeri Friday, the ceremony began at 7:30AM with the Brahmachari performing the Purusha Sookta Homa and Virajaa Homa at the Samadhi Shrines of the previous Jagadgurus. At 9AM the Brahmachari proceeded to the banks of the Tunga river and performed Preshochaarana and Sarva-bhoota-abhaya Pradhana — signifying a vow of non-violence towards all beings. He then discarded his clothes, sacred thread and tuft. As he rose from the Tunga river, Jagadguru Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji blessed Him with Kashya Vasthram (saffron monastic robes), Dandam and Kamandalu. The Guru and Shishya Swamiji then proceeded to the Samadhi Shrine of Jagadguru Sri Sri Abhinava Vidya Tirtha Mahaswamiji.

There, as per the ancient tradition established by Sri Shankaracharya, the Jagadguru then gave the Shisya Swamiji the Pranava Upadesha and Mahavakhya Upadesha.

Thereafter, the Jagadguru and the Shisya Swamiji crossed the Tunga river and proceeded towards the Goddess Sharada Temple. Then, the Shisya Swamiji performed the Paryanka Shaucha ceremony on the northern side of the river. After completing this ceremony, He entered the Goddess Sharada temple. It may be remembered here that when establishing this Peetham about 1200 years ago in Sringeri, Sri Adi Shankaracharya consecrated the idol of Goddess Sharada (the Goddess of Learning and Knowledge) and invoked Her divine presence and blessings to ever preside over this Peetham. Since then, the Jagadguru Shankaracharyas of Sringeri have always announced their successor only after Goddess Sharada’s divinely ordained-will is revealed to them. So, the Yoga Patta bestowment ceremony is aptly held in the presence of the divine Mother, Goddess Sharada.

At the temple, the Jagadguru seated the Shishya Swamiji on the Vyaakhyaana Simhasana (throne of Transcendental Wisdom), placed a Saligrama on His head and worshipped it. Jagadguru then blessed Him with the Yogapatta of Sri Sri Vidhushekhara Bharati.

Afterwards, the Jagadguru adorned the Vyaakhyaana Simhasana and the Shishya Swamiji performed Puja to the Lotus Feet of the Jagadguru. Thereafter, both Sri Mahasannidhanam and Sri Sannidhanam had Darshan of Goddess Sharada and accepted a collective offering from the devotees. Representatives from various state governments, important temples, Mathadipathis and erstwhile Maharajas also submitted their offerings.

Sri Mahasannidhanam and Sri Sannidhanam then emerged from the Goddess Sharada Temple to bless an over joyous and overflowing crowd of devotees, and had Darshan at all the temples of the Math. Later, they returned to Narasimha Vana on the southern side of the river.

The evening programmes begined with a Sabha where Sri Mahasannidhanam and Sri Sannidhanam to grace the devotees with a Anugraha Bhashanam (Dharmic discourse). Many dignitaries and Mathadipathis attended this programme.

Thereafter, at about 9 PM, the “Pallaki Utsava” of Sri Mahasannidhanam and SriSannidhanam had taken place.
