The 23rd Akhila Bharata Sreemad Bhagavatha Sathram” will be organized from 25th December 2005 to 1st January 2006 at the illustrious and sacred temple of ‘Lord Shreevallabha’ in Thiruvalla. This temple is one of the most prominent ‘Vaishnava’ temples in India and is also known as South ‘Thiruppathi’. Bhagavatha Sathram is India’s precious gift to the world humanity and is held once in a year. Thousands of years ago ‘Shaunakadi Rishis’ as advised by Lord Brahma, performed the holy Yagna called Bhagavatha Sathram at ‘Naimisaranyamaya’ on the bank of River ‘Ganga’ (Ganges) to save the world from the evil effects of ‘Kaliyuga’.

 The Bhagavatha Satharam is an amalgam of four Yagnas viz. (i) Recitation of Sreemad Bhagavatham by Eminent Rishis, (ii) Religious and authentic speeches on various phenomenons/concepts reflected in Bhagavatham by more than 50 Eminent Scholars and Priests from allover the country, (iii) Namajapam (Bhajan) of Lord by famous Bhajans troupes of Kerala and (iv) Annadanam (Serving free food to the Devotees). Each day’s ‘Homams’, ‘Poojas’ and ‘Narayaneeyam Recitation’ at the Sathra Vedi will be accomplished by renowned & eminent Tantries of Kerala. ‘Akandanamajapam’, and ‘Vishnu Sahasranama Japam’ also will be there at the Sathra Vedi and culmination of each day’s function will be with ‘Kathakali’ performed by famous artists.

 In Kaliyuga the human minds are chocked with hatred and have a tendency to tell lies and do Misdeeds (Adharma). Like fire shines the gold, attending and participating in the Bhagavatha Sathram purify human minds. The Sathram is a conglomeration of Learned Rishis, Priests, Scholars and Devotees who all will share their knowledge and experience on Bhagavatam and everybody can take part in the Bhajans, discussions and deliberations on the teachings of Bhagavatam. The gracious presence of Lord will be there at the venue of the Sathram and it is a divine opportunity for the Devotees attends the Sathram to offer their prayers and be blessed by Lord Shreevallabha and Shree Guruvayoorappan.

 During these 8 days, large number of eminent Scholars and Priests as well as lakhs of Devotees from all over the country and world will be attending the Sathram and for organizing such a huge function, earnest efforts would have to be put in by thousands of devotees and the expenses for the Sathram may run into more than 50 lakhs of rupees. Free Boarding and lodging will be provided to the devotees during all the 8 days of the Sathram. The Sathranirvahana Samithi earnestly requests all our Devotees across the World to wholeheartedly contribute/donate in a big way towards this holy yagna and invites you to take part in all the functions of the Bhagavatha Sathram.
