With the boundless blessings of Our Baktha Paripala Sri Maha Sastha, and blessings of Ayyappa Bhaktha Ratnam ,Kalpathy Sri C.V. Srinivasa Iyer (my Great Grandfather), last year's great event of “Hariharaputhra Brahmana Santarpana Vaibhavam” was a life time experience and without the divine grace event of such magnitude could event be dreamt of.

This year, Shri Mahasasthru Seva Sangam, has ordained to perform the unique event of “Maha Sastha Pattabhishekam” and the annual Sastha Preethi Mahotsavam, on June 15 & 16, 2013.

Maha Satha Pattabhishekam 16-06-2013:

The Karunyam of the Almighty, Sri Maha Sastha is immeasurable. Our gratitude to the Great Lord can be expressed in many ways.

Maha Sastha Pattabhishekam - its crowning Lord Sastha as the master of the universe.

This episode of Maha Sastha Pattabhishekam  is well explained in ancient texts like Japyeshwara Mahathmyam and Kanchi Puranam.

Lord Maha Sastha is the supreme of all Gods, the ultimate. So Lord Parameshwara decided to create a new world for him. He summonned Vishwakarma and asked him to create a beautiful world for the Lord Sastha. The place was beautified with Karpaga Vircham, Gold, Diamonds, fine plantations, singing birds, rivers carrying precious stones, blooming lovely gardens, and a palace decorated with the Navarathnas. The place was exquisite in its beauty and was lustrous with divine light and hence it was named "Thejovathy" (The same place is also known as Ponnmbalam or Kantha Malai)

Lord Shiva decided to crown Lord Sastha as Bhuvaneshwara ie the master of the Bhuvanas (cosmos).

The thirty three million Devas from all worlds, Ganapathi, Kanthan, Brahmam along with Gayathri, Savithri, Saraswathi, Lord Maha Vishnu along with Bhoo Neela, Shri Devi, Lord Paramashivan with Parvathi were present there to participate in the glorious event. The Ashtadikpalakas (Lords of the eight directions), Saptha Rishis came there and worshipped the Lord on this occasion.

All the Vahanas, Parivaras of Sastha and all the four Vedas assembled there with deep devotion and prayed Lord Sastha.

On an auspicious Muhurtham Lord Shiva himself came forward and made Lord Sastha sit on  the golden throne and performed him the Pattabishekam and thus crowning him as the master of the universe.

All clan of divine and human beings praised the glory of the Lord and Bagawan Sastha showered his grace to everyone who were present there.

It’s not a regular puja or celebaration but a religious Yagyam which would happen only by the divine grace and which would directly get us the grace and blessings of the Lord.

Another splendid event of Sapta rishi puja is also going to happen at the end of Pattabhishekam -  This is an out of the world experience for anyone to witness. All the seven rishis are invoked and they offer their salutation to the Lord after his pattabhishekam. A very rare oppurtunity to witness.

This Splendid Event of “Maha Sastha Bhuvaneshwara Pattabhishekam”, according to my knowledge, is the FIRST OF ITS KIND to take place.

If anyone wants to experience the “divinity”, this is probably the only place for that.

So, the Bhakthas who are taking part in this magnificent event can be assured of obtaining the limitless blessings of Sri MahaSastha and getting all their prayers fulfilled.
May Lord Hariharaputra be with you always, giving you the best of everything.
Swamy Sharanam
