Jai Jai Ramanuja!
Jai Ho Ramanuja!
Today, January 1, 2017, marks the beginning of the 1000 years celebration of our great A:cha:rya Bhagavad Ra:ma:nuja:charya!
As our Go:da Devi said, time is always receptive; it will always be opportune and will encourage all noble and divine endeavors started with good intentions.
At the beginning of this new year, the first part of the monument arrived at the JIVA campus at 8 pm, with Ramanujacharya himself to arrive soon to the area of construction. The JIVA campus greeted five containers containing 32 elephants and 18 petals of the lotus on which Ramanuja will be seated. We received a shipment of some more parts of the Statue from China. Soon, the parts will be welded and assembled by the Chinese team who are expected soon.
Our beloved a:cha:rya Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji announced the construction of a great statue of Equality to symbolize the legacy of Bhagavad Ra:ma:nuja for all generations to come. Acharya Ramanuja blesses us all with His timely arrival to the JIVA campus. Let’s begin this glorious year welcoming the Spirit of Equality !
