Once completed, this upcoming Temple will be the Biggest & Tallest Temple for Lord Sri Vittal and Rukmini Devi in the entire World.
Sri Vittal Rukmini Samsthan is headed by Brahmashri Vittaldas Jayakrishna Deekshithar, the grand son of Sengalipuram Brahmashri Anantharama Deekshithar and Brahmashri Narayana Deekshithar. Sri Vittaldas is also the most blessed disciple of Dakshina Halasyam Gnananandagiri Peetadhipathi Sri Haridhos Giri Swamigal (Guruji) and Paranur Mahathma Bramhashri Krishna Premi Swamigal (Sri Sri Anna). Govindapuram is such a holy land where the great Jeeva Samadhi of Sri Bhagavan Nama Bodendra Saraswathi Swamigal, the 59th Peetadhipathi of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam is present. Sri Vittal Rukmini Mandir is being constructed in Sri Vittal Rukmini Samsthan's premise which is about a kilometer away from Sri Bhagavan Nama Bodhendral's Adhishtaanam at Govindapuram. You may please visit www.vittaldas.com for more information about Sri Vittaldas Maharaj, Sri Vittal Rukmini Samsthan and its activities.
Sri Vittal Rukmini Mandir is being constructed in a typical Maharashtrian style architecture called "Hemandapanthi" with 132 ft Gopuram, Garbhagruham (Sanctum Sanctorum), Ardhamandapam, Vasanthamandapam, Mahamandapam, Mahadwaram and Pond. Bhoomi Pooja was performed by Bramhashri Krishna Premi Swamigal (Sri Sri Anna) and Sri Vittaldas Maharaj's father Vadagudi Brahmashri Rama Deekshithar on June 03, 2004. Large number of Bhagavathas and Bhakthas joined the Bhoomi Pooja. Bhagavatha Mela was conducted prior to the Bhoomi Pooja vaibhavam on June 02, 2004.
Contribution from Bhakthas is the only monetary source for this virtuous gesture. Sri Vittaldas Maharaj is travelling all over the country with His disciples to spread the importance of "Nama" through Namasankeerthanam and Sri Bhaktha Vijayam discourses. These programs thus enable Bhakthas to be gifted with the ecstasy enjoying Namasankeerthanam and to participate in this great deed. Please click here to contribute for this holy cause.
Cows have always been regarded as a holy being and Goddess in our tradition. In our own houses, not far beyond a generation or so, every home owned cows to procure milk for daily Abhishekam for Gods at home and for our household needs. As our lives became busier and more and more people moved to cities for occupation, having cows at our homes have become far from reality now-a-days. Unfortunately, in our holy nation, when these cows become old and stop giving milk, they are considered a burden and sent for slaughtering, the most sinful act.
Protection of Cows GoSamrakshanam has become the need of the day to revive the nation from the downfall from these sinful deeds and restore prosperity, peace and harmony. Towards this noble cause, a Gosala is functioning inside Sri Vittal Rukmini Samsthan premises. A unique feature of this Gosala is that the Cows are of Sri Brindhavan, Sri Govardhan, Sri Dwaraka origin and descendants of cows grazed by Lord Sri Krishna Himself. Hence this Gosala is rightly named Sri Gokulam. Devoted food, shelter, water, electricity and medical facilities are made available for this Gosala.
With close to 150 cows in this Gosala, the cost of food and other maintenance amounts to Rs. 7000 per day. Contribution of Rs. 3500 each from two devotees a day will meet this noble need. Bhakthas can also earmark their birthdays, anniversaries, remembrance days of their forefathers or any other special day and make them auspicious by donating Rs.3,500/- to participate in one day’s GoSamrakshanam for all these cows.
Bhakthas desirous of participating in this noble cause can also donate Rs.11,000/- per cow, the cost that attributes towards procuring and transporting one cow from Sri Brindavan, Sri Govardhan and Sri Dwaraka, do Go-Pooja and be the recipient of bountiful blessings of Sri Vittal Rukmini.
