My Experience to Thirukovilur(7/1/09):
On the auspicious day of “Lord Sri Narayana” i.,e Sri VaiKunta Ekadashi(7/1/09), I left chennai at around 7:00PM and embarked my journey to attend maDhya aradhanae at Thirukovilur, the place where one of the famous saints of Sri Madhwa parampara’s Moola brindhava exist. He is none other than the most powerful “Sri Raghotamma theertharu”.  Sri Raghotamma theertharu has had been performing dozens and dozens of miracles each and every day, to those who keep divine faith & deep bhakthi on him.

I reached Thirukovilur at 10:30 pm (i.e, on Ekadashi dhina). I think the total crowd on that day would be around two thousand. The place was filled with divine music and devotional songs by famous singers around India (mostly from South India). They were singing devotional songs praising Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu, I never thought I would hear those pleasant songs, and first of all, I never thought I would be present there to visit this holy place. Believe me, its nothing but Sri Hari echa(desire) that i should attend this aradhanae this year…

I made pradhashina namaskara to the great holy saint Sri Raghotamma theertharu. His brindhavna seem to be a huge one, which automatically induces bhakthi among us, it was such a marvellous sight. I sat near the bhajana place and was listening to songs till 12 am. Again with Sri Hari’s echa, I and my friend were allowed to cut fruits for Panchamirtha abhisekha, before that we took bath on the holy river and reached the place at 12:am on 8/1/09(Dwadashi dhina)

We cut fruits till 3 am and waited for Swamiglu to take mangalaarthi. At the right time, Sri Satyatma Tirtha Swamiji came and performed arthi and left for snana(bath). Again with Sri Hari’s echa, we were allowed inside the holy brindhava to keep the fruits which we cut for abhiseka. I thanked Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu from inner bhakthi for allowing me inside for more than two hours,I am pretty sure that without their anugraha, it would not have been possible.

Sri Sathyatma Tirtha Swamiji did abhiseka in a splendid way. I could hear the chanting of Sri Sri Raghotamma theertharu nama from the four directions. I felt marvelous to be there at that place that too I was standing very near to Sri Raghotamma theertharu’s moola brindhavana.The time was around 6 AM and since I was on ekadashi fasting, i started to find place to have prasada of Sri Hari(dwadashi paranae). I waited till 6:30 am to finish the alankara of yatigalu and sat at a place comfortably. Later Sri Swamigalu’s naivedhya prasadha was served at 7:45 am and was lucky enough to have them.The food there was so delicious. Thanks to Srigalu for providing me Tirtha prasadha.

My journey to thirukovilur was superb this time and would love to visit the place each and every year aradhanae.

Jai Sri Raghotamma theertharu!

  4. ONE SHOULD VISIT AND WORSHIP SRI RAGHOTHAMA SWAMIJI IN THEIR LIFE TIME. WHENEVER
    I FEEL LIKE GOING THERE I USED TO DO NAMASKARA PRADIKSHINA. THE POOJA IS DONE BY
    SWAMIJI IS IN WONDERFUL MANNER. PL VISIT ATONCE.

    NAMASKARAMS TO ALL DEVOTEES

  6. SRI RAGHOTHAMMA THEERTA HAS BLESSED ME SO MANY TIMES AT MY
    TIMES OF CRISIS. DURING THE LAST YEAR 2011 I HAD THE OPPORTUNITY
    TO VISIT HIS BRINDAVANA AND SEEK HIS BLESSINGS.

    I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE MY EXPERIENCE. IN THE YEAR 2007-08.
    MY WIFE WAS EXPERIENCING SEVERE LOWER ABDOMINAL PAIN DUE
    TO CYST AND FIBROID. IT WAS UNBEARBALE TO SEE HER WRITHING IN
    PAIN. WE WERE SUGGESTED TO GO THIRUKOILUR AND PERFORM SEVA.

    WE WENT AND PERFORMED SEVA WITH TRUE DEDICATION AND DEVOTION.

    AFTER OUR RETURN WE SWITHCED OVER TO HOMEOPATHY.
    TO OUR UTTER SURPRISE AND AMAZEMENT THE SCAN NEXT MONTH
    REVEALED NO FIBROID OR CYST. IT IS NOTHING BUT GODs MIRACLE
    AND BLESSINGS.
    RAGHOTHAMMA TEERTHARIGE JAI!

  7. enalarge the top portion of Brindavan. U will find a yati. Go on enlarging it. At the point of chest,u may find something strange? According to my observation it is the face of a person, from another angle it looks like the head of an animal. Would any one of u analyse it, and let me know.

    • The place is called MANAMPOONDI. If you come from Villupuram it is one hour journey. After Aragandanallur the next stopping is Sri Ragothamaswamy Madam. All conductors and drivers know the place. I hope the above info is suffice. tks
