Śrīmad Bhāgavata Katha Śravaṇa Sapthaha

Śrīmad Bhāgavata Katha Śravaṇa Sapthaha

Srimad Bhagavatam, or Bhagavata Purana, is a major Hindu scripture glorifying Lord Vishnu's avatars, especially Lord Krishna, and depicting the stories of Bhagavan's devotees. Considered the essence of the Vedas, Upanishads, and Bhagavad Gita, it is revered for elevating spiritual lives.

Conducting a week-long Srimad Bhagavatam discourse (saptah) is a common Hindu practice. As per Sadguru Sri Anantaswamy Maharaj's inspiration, a 'Shrimad Bhagavat Katha Shravana Saptah Yajna' will be held at the ashram. Vidwan Kalya Sri Srikantacharya will narrate stories from Srimad Bhagavatam, accompanied by Lord Krishna's worship.

Devotees are requested to attend this week-long event with families and relatives, listen to the nectar-like Srimad Bhagavata Katha Shravana and spiritual discourses, and receive blessings of Lord Panduranga Vithala and Rukmini, the idol of Sadguru Sri Ananthaswamy Maharaj.

Sri Sadguru Anantha Swamy Ashram has a history that resonates with today's  world very strongly. It served a greater purpose towards the well-being of not just the Swakula Sali community but towards all sects of the society. This very purpose keeps us growing stronger. 
 

Today, it is a center for various community related activities like blood-donation, annadana, meditation, yoga classes, devotional activities, prayers, bhajans, satsang and also supports talented students with accommodation.

Sri Anantha Swamy came in search of a peaceful and righteous place to extend his kind activities towards mankind and setup a place to engage in activities praising the Lord Vittala. He decided to accept the current location and surroundings of the Anantha ashram as a place to render his services. With this the ashram was established in around 1900. 

Sri Anantha Swamy never expected any monetary assistance from anybody but led a simple life. Many devotees came forward to build an ashram but he refused. After completion of swamiji’s worldly duties, his remains were placed at the current Sanctum Sanctorum. At the first instance four rooms consisting of Garbha Gruha and the Upanyas Mandir were constructed. The rest of the infrastructure was gradually added over the years.

Our Sadgurus-Devotion & Service

Sri Sadguru Anantha Swamy

Great Saint Sri Anantha Swamy also devotedly called as Sri Anantha Maharaj hailed from Bangalore and was born on the day of Anantha Chaturdashi (09-09-1851). After marriage and few years later Sri Anantha Maharaj renounced worldly affairs and stepped-out of the house towards the goal of peace by chanting "Ramakrishna Hari". He was an ardent devotee of Lord Vittala and spent time in Pandharpur to gain spiritual knowledge and thereafter returned in Bangalore. He frequently travelled to Pandharpur by foot praying to Lord Vittala along the way.

 

He established himself for almost 18 years and during that time started the “Pandhari Varakari” culture  and conducted “Bhagavat Sapthah”, Devotional songs, Religious Discourses, Dhindi Bhajans, etc.,

to promote the Bhakti Awareness among the people. 

He was contented with a small piece of cloth tied around him and never engaged in luxury of clothing or pompous show.

 

During the spread of epidemic plague disease of 1901, Sri Anantha Maharaj  personally nursed and fed many patients. He took care of them like his own children, and believed that serving humankind is God’s work. 

 

Sri Anantha Maharaj reached the abode of God on 16th January 1902 (Year – Plava, Pushya Shuddha Saptami - Thursday).

Sri Hariharananda Bharathi Swamy

Sri Hariharananda Bharathi Swamy is a mirror of Sri Anantha Swamy’s life. He renounced his worldly affairs and chose to take the path of devotion and service to mankind. He diverted the attention of all devotees towards "Hari Sankirtanas". Subsequently he adored the Supreme Peetham of Anantha ashram. He improved the Ashram's infrastructure, offered free food and shelter to poor students, clothes for the needy and also offered a resting place for people seeking spiritual knowledge.

Indian political activist Kasturbaji, during her visit to Bengaluru, along with Gandhiji and followers, visited the Ashram and listened to the Bhajans & Abhangs sung by Swamy keenly for about Three hours. They were very much pleased about the activities of the Ashram and blessed him.

He left to the Heavenly abode on 15th April, 1963. In Mysore a new Ashram was established in Jayalakshmipuram under the guidance of Sri Hariharananda Bharathi Swamy. This Ashram is managed by the respective trustees and witnesses regular Devotional activities.  

Following the path set by our Sadgurus towards service and devotion is the biggest tribute that we can offer and show our humble gratitude to them.
