Udupi is an adobe of Lord Shree Krishna and a wondrous coastal city of Karnataka created none other than Lord Parushurama which has gained special prominence in the realm of heritages of India. Lord Hanuman of Treta Yug, mighty Bhimasen of Dwapar Yug, reincarnated himself as Jagadguru Sriman Madhwacharya in Kali Yug almost eight centuries ago in a village called Pajaka near Udupi consecrated the Krishna Idol at Udupi which was originally worshipped by Rukmini Devi in Dwapar Yug. Shree Madhwacharya riveted eight muths to perform pooja rituals to Lord Krishna which even today astha muths perform taking turn every 2 years and this system is called Paryaya.
Raghupati Bhat also disclosed some of the great works of Shree Shree Sugunendra Theertha Sripadaru who is the 31st pontiff in the lineage of Shree Upendra Theertharu, ascending the ‘Sarvajna’ Peetha for the 4th time along with his disciple Shree Shree Sushreendratheertha Swamiji. Having travelled across the country to preach Dharma, Shree Shree Swamiji found that ‘Sri Bhagavad Gita’ can be only solution for the problems of humanity. Swamiji has built the grand and magnificent structure ‘Gita Mandir’ in his second Paryaya in the year 1992.
H.H. Swamiji has travelled to abroad and his contribution towards preservation and creating awareness about Sanatana Dharma is remarkable. He has travelled and established 12 Sri Puthige Muth Krishna Temple in America, 1 each in England and Canada, 3 in Australia and many other places.
