The devotees of Maharanyam HH Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji had put up a stall between 26th to 28th December 2009 displaying the various spiritual and service activities undertaken by various trusts which are functioning with the blessings of Sri Sri Swamiji.

People from various walks of life had visited the “Madhuramurali” stall to whom pamphlets and other materials relating to Hara Rama Mahamantra were distributed.



Srimad Bhagavata Saptaham was organised at the house of our satsang devotee ‘Kumari Hema, RC Park, Naganathan Street, Ram Nagar, Ambattur’ by ‘Ambattur and Avadi devotees’ from 15th to 21st December 2009. Gata stapanam was on 14th December 2009.  Sri Balaji Bagavathar performed Parayanam with Subramani Bagavathar on all the seven days along with narrations in Tamil in-between the Parayanam during important Anubhavas of Srimad Bagavatham.
The Shabthas of ‘Om Haraye Namaha, Gopika Jeevana Smaranam, Govinda Govinda, Sathguru Natha Maharajki Jai’ between Adyayams occupied the entire 16-House Apartments. Almost all the residents were very proud of Saptaham at their Apartments and participated throughout the Saptaham.
On 15th December 2009, splashing rain started at 4.00 PM, continued up to 8.00 pm at Chennai, The roads were blocked due to rain water on high roads, and the cars on roads were finding it difficult to maneuver due to   poor visibility, even wipers could not contribute. Inspite of this, Sri Sri Swamiji had been there to inaugurate the Saptaham.
Sri Sri Swamiji was welcomed at Sri Mahalakshmi Kalyana Mandapam, Ambattur with Mahamantra chanting by over 1000 devotees. The devotees were fortunate to hear the narration of Bhagavatha Mahatmyam by Sri Sri Swamiji. At the end of the narration, devotees were found saying that they had never hear such a wonderful narration of Bhagavatha Mahatmyam.
About 400 devotees attended daily the Bhagavatha Parayanam by Sri Balaji Bagavathar. Sri Balaji brought the Anubhavam  of Sadhus, various Avathars, Panduranga Bhaktas and Lord Krishna to all the devotees.  All devotees requested to organize Dasama Skanda Saptaham by Sri Balaji as early as possible.
All the devotees were full of tears and unable to console themselves, even unable to see due to the tears  in their eyes because of the fact they realized with hard thoughts that the Sapthaham was over on 21st December 2009.

As ordained by Sri Sri Swamiji, a Bhagavata saptaha pravachanam was conducted at Jakarta, Indonesia at the residence of Sri. Gopal and Smt. Mala Gopal from 18th to 24th October 2009. Smt. Bharathi Ramakrishnahari did the pravachanam in Tamil for 7 days from 10.30 am to 12.00 noon.

The first day’s lecture was ‘Srimad Bhagavatha Mahatmyam’. It was a good start with around 45 devotees participating. The next day’s lecture was on ‘Narada charitram’ and ‘Druva charitra’. The lady devotees were moved to tears while hearing about the worldly dispassion of Sage Narada during his previous birth. The day being our Sri Sri Swamiji’s jayanthi, Guru mahima was highlighted. All, could not but cry on hearing the incidence about our Sri Sri Swamiji’s compassion towards an ardent devotee who was a poor tailor. His 2 small kids, who got drowned in a swamp mud pool, came back to life after 45 min when the tailor called out the Lord’s name with faith. The day’s satsang concluded with special chanting for our Sri Sri Swamiji’s jayanthi.

The third day’s lecture was on ‘Ajamila charitra’ and ‘Ambareesha charitra’. She highlighted that even a sinner like Ajamila could be liberated when he called his 10th son on his death bed. The Lord heard him cry ‘Narayana’ which also happened to be Ajamila’s son’s name and Lord sent His kinkaras to take him to His feet. The fourth day’s lecture was on ‘Prahlada charitra’.The fifth day’s lecture was on ‘Gajendra moksham’ and ‘ Vamana avatara’.

The sixth day’s lecture was the much awaited ‘Krishna jananam’ and ‘Krishna leela’. The weekdays saw a crowd of around 18-20 lady devotees. Around 60 devotees thronged on the final day to hear about ‘Krishna leela’ and ‘Rukmani kalyanam’. The devotees laughed and cried as they heard the Krishna leela.

It was indeed a feast to the people of Jakarta to hear Bhagavata saptaham lecture far off from our land, Bharath. All this was possible only by the grace of our beloved Sri Sri Swamiji. Even Varuna Deva seemed to have been moved by the compassion of our Swamiji in bringing satsang abroad. There was slight drizzling upon the final day lecture conclusion amidst the scorching sun as the climate there has been hot recently.

The photos of the Saptaham are available here.
