Narasaraopet: FEBRUARY 24-28, 2013

The Jagadguru Graces Narasaraopet — His Poorvasharama Hometown

Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji arrived at the town of Narasaraopet on 24th February 2013 to a rousing reception. The residents of Narasaraopet were excited at the arrival of the Jagadguru, for it was in the town that the Jagadguru had spent most of His Poorvashrama days until 1966, before coming to be under the direct tutelage of His Guru Sri Sri Abhinava Vidya Tirtha Mahaswamiji. The Jagadguru expressed in His Anugraha Bhashanam that as a Sannyasi, He had no affiliations to a particular place or a language, but the fervour amongst the devotees was natural even as they felt a deep sense of connection with the Jagadguru. The Jagadguru then performed the Sharada Chandramoulishwara Puja.
