Srimushnam Andavan meets Poundarikapuram Andavan

Sreemathe RangaRamanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha
I am pleased to present you a very important event in Munithraya Sampradayam, which happened on 23rd June, 2012, in Srirangam. Srirangam Srimath Andavan arrived Periyashramam on the evening of 22nd June for a camp of 4days. His Holiness was met by Poudarikapuram Ashramam Karyasthars and expressed the wish of Srimath Poudarikapuram Andavan, Srimath Raghuveera Mahadesikan to meet him on that day. Srimushnam Andavan knows very well that Srimath Poundarikapuram Andavan would like to take a long walk from His Ashramam to Periyashramam, which is more than a kilometer away and that too in hot sun and bad road, at his age of 82. He sent a word through them, that he will not stand on prestige, but would like Himself to pay a visit to Poundaikapuram Ashramam and meet H.H. Srimath Raghuveera Mahadesikan.

Accordingly, Srimushnam Andavan arrived there that evening and spent nearly 90 minutes with Srimath Raguveera Mahadesikan. They were to gether and exchanged many matters of mutual interest. Many devotees were very much pleased to see both Acharyas together and paid their respects and obtained Manthradchadai from both H.H.s. Both Acharyans exchanged Sambavanais

I had the opportunity to witness this event and took a few pictures of the great event in Munithrya Sampradayam. Please enjoy viewing.
