As precursor to Swami Desika's Vaarshika Uthsavam which is a couple of months away, we present a pictorial depiction of the Life History of Swami Desika titled 'Chithra Desikeeyam'. This is an adaptation of a Power Point slide show created by Lakshmi Narasimhan Sridhar of Bangalore. We record our sincere thanks to him for his whole-hearted and unconditional permission to use the same in our website.
The wall paintings illustrating various incidents in Swami Desika's life as found in the Prakara of the temple at Thooppul, his birth place, form the fulcrum of this presentation supported by appropriate narration. This feature will surely instil a great sense of veneration and devotion towards the Acharya Saarvabhowma, especially in young minds which are instrumental to holding aloft our Sampradaya in future.
Swami Desika's life history is a must-know for every one of us. Elders are requested to initiate and guide their children into this presentation and make them understand the greatness of our Acharya.
May our illustrious Acharya shower his grace on one and all!
