Annamacharya Vardhanti Observed

The 520th Death Anniversary of Saint Poet Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya was observed with utmost devotion in Tirumala on Saturday evening.

The 46th Pontiff of Ahobilam Mutt Sri Satagopa Ranganatha Yateendra Mahadesikan Swamiji in his Anugraha Bhashanam on the occasion recalled the connection of Annamacharya with Ahobila Mutt and said the saint poet underwent his vedic education in the Mutt. He also said with the divine blessings of Sri Narasimha Swamy, Annamacharya was granted 32 Beejakshara Maha Mantram and penned 32thousand poetical gems in the form of Sankeertans.

Annamacharya Project Chief Dr Vibhishana Sharma said TTD is bringing out ''Annamaiah Sankeertana Lahari'' soon in the form of a book with meanings and essence for each Kriti.

"Last year we tuned 300 new songs and this year another 340 are under way", he maintained.

Earlier, the Annamacharya Project artistes and vocalists of SV College of Music and Dance rendered Sapthagiri Sankeertans penned by the saint poet in a befitting manner in front of Sri Malayappa Swamy flanked by Sridevi and Bhudevi on a finely decked unjal in Narayanagiri Gardens.
