Rarely does one get an opportunity to witness history from close quarters! This new samavatsara (Hindu Calendar Year) presented one such opportunity to us devotees in Melbourne!


As the world over was getting ready to celebrate the rise of Christ on the Easter morning (March 31st), hundreds of devotees in Australia were getting ready to celebrate the arrival of Krishna! It marked the day when Sri Suguneendra Teertha Swamiji (henceforth addressed as Sreegalu or His Holiness) of Puthige Matha (one of the 8 Mathas in Udupi, Karnataka established by Jagadguru Madhwacharya in 12th Century AD) arrived on the Australian continent for the first time. Devotees were delighted to welcome Vijaya Vithala (aradhya devaru of Puthige Matha) and Muddu Udupi Krishna's amongst their midst and into their mind and hearts!
