Prayerful Salutations at the Lotus Feet of Divine Mother, Devi Sree Ramambika.

CELEBRATION OF 107TH YEAR OF ADVENT OF DIVINE MOTHER SREE RAMA DEVI.
(3RD MARCH TO 5TH MARCH 2018)

Blessed Souls,

The Avatars of Iswara have distinguishing characteristics of their own. Jivas take birth under the compulsion of their own Karmas, whereas the Avatars are beyond Karma. Avatars descend into this world impelled by compassion and to lift the Dharma to a higher level for the good of the whole universe. The Divine reveals the superhuman nature even from birth. Divine Mother came into this world smilingly. That Divine smile captivated the hearts of those who looked at the baby. Indeed the child was child in appearance only. Within that tiny most beautiful form, there shone the universal Mother, Brahman, the infinite Shakthi, who imparts light to the sun, effulgence to the fire, the power of motion to the air and the one who is the Author of entire creation.

The Avatar is human only in appearance. His humanity is only a veil that hides His God-hood. His qualities and deeds distinguish Him from rest of the Mankind. He fulfils Divine Mission on earth. His whole life illustrates the glory of Dharma. The truth of His Divine nature and the uniqueness of His life and actions reveal themselves by passage of time. The Advent of the Supreme as a loving Mother and Guru, functioning inthe order of Grihasthya, showing the path of salvation for the toiling humanity is indeed a golden opportunity for all those who long for liberation.

The Divine Mother of the universe ever perfect one by assuming the human role led a spotless life of Dharma and that immaculate life itself became a light for humanity for all time to come. When Mother entered Grahasthashrama, Her consort Sree Krishna Bhagath, came under the dazzling perfection of Dharma, highest human and Divine excellences. As a result, he became a resigned soul and siddha purusha. He gained insight into the Divinity of Mother and the purpose of Her advent. In fact, he realized that Mother's life was a great Divine Yajna, a total self offering at the altar fire of Dharma. Dharma is too deep for human comprehension.

Sree Rama, whom Sage Valmiki addressed as "Dharma Murthy", went to live in the forest in great and arduous tapas for fourteen years for preserving Dharma. Divine Mother remained in the seclusion of Home and all Herlife was a ceaseless tapas and yajna. Not only Her fasts, Meditation and Holy communions but Her whole life of duties was a rigorous tapascharya. It was a glorious picture of exalted Dharma! A life of supremesacrifice, a life that reminds the priceless heritage of Bharath, a life which presents the grand ideal of Sanathana Dharma extolled by the great vedic seers and sages.

The lofty principles of Grihasthya, the facets of pathivrathya, the sweetness of bhakthi, the ecstasy of karma and superhuman aspects of Avatara-hood – all these and more manifested in the great and illustrious lifeof Divine Mother. Her doctrine and tenets of higher life laid emphasis on the highest truth.

Ratha Sptami was celebrated on Wednesday, the 24th January. Rathotsva was the main feature of the celebration. On this day the Sun turns to north heralding "Utharayana" – known as Utharayana Punyakala. InShaktinagar, the "Utsava Murthy" of Devi Sree Ramambika, was taken ceremoniously to Silver Ratham. Placed in Silver Ratham, worship is offered to Devi Sree Ramambika in various ways as per the prayers of devotees. This tradition is maintained from time immemorial. The Utsva Murthy was taken back to the Shrine and Maha Pooja performed.

Great Acharya Sree Ramanuja established "Sree Vishnu" temple in "Melukote" with Agamic Rites. He was a Vishnu Bhaktha of great repute. In the night of Vigraha Prathishta day, Lord Vishnu appeared before him and expressed "Oh great Bhakta, I am happy to be present in the temple but I am not able to move about from the temple to meet and talk with devotees and listen to their woes and wants and give solace to their problems". Sree Ramanuja immediately started to north to fetch a suitable Vigraha. He entered the Palace of a Muslim King in Delhi, who was pleased to spare a 'Vishnu Vigraha' liked by Sree Ramanuja Acharya. He installed the Vigraha (Utsava Murthy). The Lord liked the Vigraha. From that day Rathotsavam started. In almost all temples Rathotsavam celebrated which devotees like very much.

Rathotsavam is the only occasion that devotees talk and pray to God intimately in close proximity.

By the grace and blessing of Divine Mother, Devi Sree Ramambika, it has been decided to celebrate the 107th year of Advent of Divine Mother Sree Rama Devi with thre day programme from 3rd March to 5th March, 2018. Akhanda Mahamanthra Japa Yajna, discourses on the Leelas of Divine Mother, Katha Keerthan, Bhajans, devotional songs and ceremonial procession of Utsava Murthy (Devi Sree Ramambika) in Shaktinagar campus are some ofthe salient features of the celebrations.

Divine Mother Says, "Look upon the image as the Supreme being. Have the Bhava that God is there to receive your worship in person. When Bhava-chakshu opens, you will see the image full of life as the personification of Brahma chaithanya itself."

Blessed brothers and sisters, be it our spiritual privilege to gather in Shaktinagar in the bond of Divine friendship to participate in the most auspicious celebration to imbibe the all healing and the all sublimating spiritual vibrations emanating from Divine Mother Devi Sree Ramambika.

May lasting peace pervade the entire universe is our soulful prayer at Her Lotus Feet.

With fraternal regards,
Yours in the Cause of Mission,

(A.M. DEVAIAH)
SECRETARY
