Sri Swamiji in Vijayawada
Ganapathy Festival-2006
Jaya Guru Datta
Sri Swamiji has arrived in Vijayawada for the important Ganapathy Festival. One may recall the Ganapathy temple installation in 1981. Since then, Sri Swamiji has visited Vijayawada for many Ganapathy festivals.
Sri Swamiji arrived on 24th evening in Gannavaram airport when hundreds of devotees reverentially welcomed Sri Swamiji.
In the Ashrama, Sri Swamiji was received by Bala Swamiji, His Holiness Sri Datta Vijayananda Teertha Swamiji, the junior pontiff of Avadhoota Datta Peetham who has been observing the annual Chaturmasya Vrata in Vijayawada. It was an emotional reunion of the Senior and Junior seer.
