Vasavi Jayanti 2016

Happy Vasavi Jayanthi!

Vasavi Matha is born on Vaisakha Suddha Dasami which falls on 15th May 2016 in North America. Vasavi Matha has been also referred as Sri Kanyaka Parameswari. Vasavi Matha life is worth remembering, because of her faith in non-violence religious values and her defense for status of women. Sri Kanyaka Parameswari who had rejected worldly pleasures and won the minds of Vasavites also the champion of Dharmam, Seelam, Peace thru non-violence, should be remembered at all times by one and all.

As you all know some of our chapters had successfully celebrated Vasavi Jayanthi last weekend and some more chapters are celebrating today the VJ day and few over next few weekends. Anyways we wish all the chapters a grand successful celebrations. Every event we do will bring us much closer as family and community. It gives us long needed extended family and togetherness, our strength is our community. United we stand as a group & will empower us with more opportunities and we become more stronger !

Here I would like to thank the members of the Vasavi Jayanthi Pooja Committee, Udaykiran Jonnala, Venkat Maddi & Ramesh Bapanapalli, for working hard and coordinating the Vasavi Jayanthi event across all of our chapters in the USA.

The Committee brought Vasavi Matha vigraha`s from India for distribution to all the chapters, and, for the first time, brought Kumkum from the Sri Kanyaka Parameswari Temple in Penugonda, and distributed to the chapters. Our thanks are due to Kittanna garu, Anil Gupta from Bangalore & special thanks to N.V Ramana Murthy garu from Penugonda for arranging Ammavari Kumkuma to NRIVA.

We are also thankful for the services of Padma Balaji garu, from Boston, for valuable time spent to teach the Vasavi Matha Moola Mantram to our interested member families, all of whom felt blessed to participate & learn.

Finally, let us salute the Pooja Committee for introducing the Elocution competition about Vasavi Matha for Elementary, Middle and High School students. It was a well-received innovation.

 This has been a very successful event and it was due to the fact that our Pooja team members worked as a dedicated team. I have nothing but high praise and thanks for all who contributed to this success including our Secretary & Treasurer along with the above mentioned main batsmen.

 May Sri Vasavi Matha bless you and your family with abundant happiness!
