With the grace of our Sri Swamiji, School Mass Prayers for the 10th/ 12th standard (appearing for board exams) have been conducted at Wallajahbad/ Sriperumbudur on 03rd & 04th February 2016. The arrangements have been made very well by Sri Sundar. Sri Muraliji representing our GOD India, attended to these School prayers and gave lectures.

Agathiyar Matric HSC, Wallajabad (300), 2) Govt Girls HSC, Wallajabad (500) 3) Govt Girls HSC, Sriperumbudur (425)



With the wonderful blessings of our Sri Swamiji, We had a very good satsang from 01.04.2015 to 11.04.2015, of Sri Ramanuja Vaibhavam (Pravachanam) arranged at our Sri Perumbudur Namadwaar with the co-ordination of Sri Sundar, our Namadwaar in-charge.

The pravachanam took place at Sri Perumbudur (the birth place of Sri Bhagavath Ramanujar) and Sri Muraliji representing our “Global Organisation for Divinity India Trust” had the golden opportunity to give Pravachanam between 06.30pm to 08.30pm every day. He has explained the greatness of Sri Ramanujar/ “Vaishnava Acharyas” who preceded Sri Ramanujar and his glorious disciples.

On the last day we also had Nagara Sangeerthanam attended by more than 120 devotees before pravachanam. Sri Pammal Balaji was also present for a Mass prayer at the end of pravachanam.

The response from the devotees was pretty good. The average presence was 90-100/day and the last day presence was more than 200 devotees. They all listened to the pravachanam with plenty of attention/devotion. Sri Balaji also gave coins (Srinivasa Perumal Prasadham), along with Hare Rama Sticker and Kumkum.



Day: Sunday, 11th July 2010

The venue was the holy Bhutapuri Kshetra – the very birth place of Bhagavat Ramanujacharya, the great Saint who had given to the masses the essence of true devotion and the greatness of the ‘Thirumandhiram’.

The event was ‘Mahamantra Nagara Sankirtan’.    More than 400 devotees from different parts of Chennai and other places had assembled in Sriperumbudur.

The Sriperumbudur Namadwaar that is located in the heart of the town serves as the seat of  satsang and Nama Sankirtan in this holy town.  It was inaugurated by Sri Sri Swamiji in 2009.

Devotees slowly poured in to the Namadwaar right from the afternoon.  Mahamantra was continuously echoing in the Namadwaar and was reverberating beyond the four walls of the Namadwaar.

All the devotees were eager to take the fragrance of the Mahamantra to the entire town…  At about 5 pm, the Nagara Sankirtan started from the Namadwaar and went around the main road.  What seemed to be a never-ending line of devotees – young and old, ladies and gents, who had, in an extremely organized manner, lined themselves up,  moved through the streets – truly a sight to behold!

The procession was led by young devotees who held banners of the Mahamantra in saffron, that was enough eye-catching for any casual onlooker.  The onlookers were carried away by the devotion of the devotees in the Nagara Sankirtan, and only later realized that their lips too, did involuntarily chant the Mahamantra!

The divine sound of Mahamantra thundered in the atmosphere, as the procession went towards the Sriperumbudur temple.   Sri Udayavar, who is very much live in the “Thaan Ugandha Tirumeni” in this holy Kshetra, did, certainly listen to the Mahamantra as the devotees went around the temple in the Nagara Sankirtan procession.  A few devotees jumped in divine ecstasy chanting the Mahamantra.    Indeed, who can ever limit the enthusiasm, fervor and piety that Lord Krishna generates in one, who chants the Mahamantra with faith and devotion, especially in such a satsang!

The procession slowly returned to the Namadwaar after a divine and eventful Nagara Sankirtan that lasted for more than 80 minutes.  Devotees included people from the Kendras around Sriperumbudur and other places like Avadi, Ambattur, Kovvur, Pattinampakkam, Annanagar, Pillaipakkam, Singaperumal Koil, Galattupattu and other villages surrounding our Madhurapuri Ashram.

After the Nagara Sankirtan, prasadam was arranged for all the devotees from Sri Kalyana Srinivasa Perumal temple. All the devotees partook the prasadam.

As it was parting moment, the devotees, with satisfied hearts and appetites, left for their places, still speaking about the Nagara Sankirtan.

Sri Balaraman of Annanagar Kendra, Sri Shanmugham of Kovvur, Sri Sivakumar of Avadi, Smt Gunavathi of Avadi, Sri Venkatesan of Singaperumal Koil, Sri Jayaraman of Pillaipakkam, Sri Arivarasan of Pattinampakkam, Sri Kumaran of Galattupattu amongst others coordinated excellently with Sri Sundar, the Bhagavata in-charge of Sriperumbudur Namadwaar to make this event a grand success.

Sri Ramachandran, Sri Kesavan, Sri Srinivasakannan, Sri Ramesh, Sri Srikanth and Sri Vasantharajan of GOD, Chennai participated in this Nagara Sankirtan.



Satsang was conducted at Sriperumbudur Namadwaar on the evening of 19th June 2010. Sri Kesavan and Sri Ramachandran of GOD, Chennai participated in the satsang.

Sri Kesavan spoke about Guru Mahimai and Nama Mahaimai and experiences of devotees with Sri Sri Swamiji at the Namadwaar and around 50 devotees had attended. Mahamantra chanting was done for 45 minutes before the lecture and all the devotees chanted the Mahamantra very enthusiastically.



Sri Kesavanji of GOD India, Chennai, gave lecture on “Bhagavath Sri Ramanujar Vaibhavam” between 2nd April and 8th April 2010 at Sriperumbudur Namadwaar. The lectures were between 7.00 pm and 8.30 pm on all the days.
The holy charitra of Sri Ramanujar was expounded at His birth place in an excellent way by Sri Kesavanji. He spoke on purpose of the great avathar and his holy works viz. Sri Bashyam literary work, Thirupani renovation of temple viz Melkote, Srirangam, etc, Prapathi Marga Prakashakam, Nama Sankirtanam at Thirukostiyur, bringing all people together irrespective of caste, creed or race including temple entry, etc was covered in a lucid and succinct way.
Sri Kesavanji also took parallel examples from Sri Ramanuja Charitram and our Sri Swamiji and explained how great Avathara purshas are similar in their holy works.


On 4th October 2009, Sri Kesavan, Ramesh and Vasanth of GOD India visited the Namadwaar at Sriperumbudur. There were around 30 devotees, which included some children, who were chanting Nama in the evening.
After the Nama chanting, Sri Sundar, the Namadwaar in charge, spoke on Nama Mahimai for around 15 minutes. He spoke about how the Name came into existence, why should we chant Name, why a Guru is necessary etc.  Then Sri Kesavan spoke for around 30 minutes on various types of Bhaktis, Nama Mahimai, Guru Mahimai, about Sri Ramanujar and quoted widely from Srimad Bhagavatham and Bhagavat Gita. All the devotees who had gathered there listed with rapt attention.
The satsang came to a close with the singing of “Kaliyayum Bali kollum….” Song which was followed by an Harathi to Lord Premika Varadan.

The number twelve has a great significance for a spiritual aspirant. The Dwadhasakshari (consisting of 12 syllables) is considered as the most sacred mantra. Twelve is the number of Azhwars that descended on Earth to propagate the glory of the Divine Name and Form of the Lord, Srimad Bhagavatam consists of 12 cantos, and so on.

The Dwadasi day, Tuesday 23rd March 2009, is more special for us as, in the presence of our beloved Sri Sri Swamiji was inaugurated the new Namadwaar in the holy town of Sriperumbudur.  It’s the birth place of Sri Ramanuja, the foremost Acharya in the Sri Vaishnava Sampradaya.

Surrounded by lush green fields, the Sriperumbudur Namadwaar is architected in a unique manner.  The pillar in the center of the hall seems to hold the entire building, as if representative of the Mahamantra pillar that holds the entire Universe.  The beauty in this construction is that one can view the happenings of the hall sitting in any corner of the hall without being obstructed by the pillar.

Our Swamiji reached Namadwaar at 5:15PM and sat in the hall where about 50 devotees had already gathered. The program started with Sri Kesavan’s introductory speech on Sri Ramanuja. He expounded the glory of Guru Bhakti by quoting various incidents from the life of Sri Ramanuja and also beautifully sung few verses from the holy compilation, Naalayira Divya Prabandaham.

Then Sri Sri Swamiji rendered His divine speech on the Vaishanava Sampradhaya and the Glory of Sri Ramanuja. He concluded His speech saying “This place is so serene and hence the Namadwaar is being established here. Lighting a lamp is an easy task but one has to pour oil to it continuously. Likewise the sustenance of this Namadwaar is in the hands of devotees to ensure it functions properly in all coming years.”

Sri Sri Swamiji honored Sri.Balaraman and Smt.Balaraman who have dedicated their property in the holy town of Sriperumbudur for this noble cause.

The program concluded at 7 pm and Prasadam was distributed to all the devotees.

Mr.Shanmugaraj is the caretaker of this Namadwaar. His contact number is 9791124294. The visiting hours for Namadwaar  is 8-11 in the morning and 5-8 in the evening.

The complete address of Namadwaar is
“Sriperumbudur Namadwaar”
Thirumangai Azhwar Street
