Shreeman PTGS Kishoracharya
“nahi kashchit kshanamapi jAtu tishthati akarmakrt kAryate hi awashah karma sarwah prakrtijaih gunaih” || Bhagavad Gita 3.5||
“Verily none can ever remain for even a moment without performing action; for every one is made to act helplessly indeed by the qualities born of Prakriti.”
If the very motive of such Karma (deed) is selflessness, it only yields to the treasure of disorder, devilish, and barbaric emotions. If the purpose of Karma is for service of mankind, it works as an agent in bringing humane and divine attachment and make the person an instrument in realizing wholesome wellbeing of the world.
When Karma is motivated by shallowness and selfish intention, it just remains as mere Karma. If it is done with yeomen motto, every moment of it will be filled by purest form of progress. Leading the materialistic life, how many can attain such stage of Karma Yogi by working towards wellbeing of others. How many can transform their Karma into such holy Yagna? This path is indeed very hard to follow. It is like walking on the firewood. It is like flying in the empty sky. This path is only possible for those holy people who are blessed by gurus, destined by noble intention, people with virtue from earlier lives.
“Million of occupations, literally devised for the sake of earning one’s bread”,
is an age-old catchphrase. In today’s world, devotion is also treated as the source of income. It is indeed very hard fact to digest. In this backdrop, there is one great guru Shreeman Palvancha Tirumala Gudimella Satyanarayana Kishoracharya, is marching in a different path of selfless devotion. He has been spreading selfless devotion among the people. He is fondly known as Shreeman PTGS Kishoracharya. He strongly believes that the spiritual learning and Vendanta knowledge that he attained from great Gurus, needs to be imparted to next generation without any commercial intent. He opines that education is not for livelihood but for illuminating lives of people from darkness of ignorance. He intends to awaken people with his selfless Yagnika services.
Shree Yagnika Peetham took birth from the noble ideals of Shreeman PTGS Kishoracharya. Spirituality is support system for entire mankind at every phase of life’s transition. He intends to offer Yagnika services to all through the Peetham.
Villages are true places of Indian Culture and heritage. But numerous temples across many villages are neglected and decayed. Lack of Archakas (Pujaris) in temples is one more major obstacle. Besides this, nowadays people are only interested in building new temples. Among few who wish to learn Archaka / Vaidika Vidya, are finding it difficult to reach well maintained residential vedic schools. To address all such multipronged issues, Shreeman Kishoracharya has established “Shree Yagnika Peetham” in the year ____.
In general priests get good income for performing “Alaya Pratishta” (Inshrining of New Temples). It is the vaidika process in which idols of main deity are installed in the Sanctum Sanctorum (Garbha Gudi). But Shreeman Kishoracharya is staying away from such revenue sources with the strong dictum that
“people are important than money and awakening more essential than people.”
With such divine objective, he has shunned away such income resource and has been vouching for repairing of ruined and abandoned temples.
If anyone approaches him with the idea of building new temple, he encourages them to adopt ruined temples to effective revival. In this direction, he has already restore some abandoned temples and made people responsible for further maintenance of temples.
He has also conceptualized a unique “100 days long Archaka / Vaidika Training Camp” for free of cost. He has completed the training camp by spending his own money, time and effort. Despite of many hurdles, he has successfully completed the training camp where around ___ students in the age group of ___ to ___ took part. He has provided free accommodation, food and training by spending from his own resources.
Shreeman Kishoracharya has proven the fact that Yagnas (spiritual offerings) also can be performed without any personal intent. He has been performing Hayagreeva Yagnas in this Vedic School without hoping for any monetary benefit. He has been helping them in driving away the ignorance by imparting enriched spiritual / vaidika knowledge. He is destined to protect the Hindu Dharma, promote national integrity and spiritual heritage by building “Shree Yagnika Peetham” with great spiritual objectives.
