Sri Guru Pahimam - Paramadhayalo Pahimam!


Dakshinamnaya Sri Sharada Peethadhipati Jagadguru Shankaracharya Sri Sri Bharati 

Tirtha Mahaswamigal has announced His Shishya Sweekara. Sri Kuppa Venkatesha 

Prasada Sharma to be His Uttaradhikari - the successor-designate to the Dakshinamnaya 

Sri Sharada Peetham. He will be the 37th Acharya in the Sringeri  lineage of Acharyas. He 

is 22 years Aged. He had his school education at Hyderabad,and then studied at Veda 

Patashala at Tirupathi. For the last 5 years He is in Sringeri and expertised on Sasthras, 

Thargam, Meemamsam etc.,


His parents are Sri Siva Subramanya Avadhanigal and Smt Sita Nagalakshmi.
The would-

be Acharya's parents and family are very well known to Kanchi Periyavas. He 

used to fluently chant 'Atharvana Veda' during the present Sringeri Acharya's 

chathurmasya stay in Madras couple of years ago.The present Swamiji's parents (along 

with their Son before becoming Sanyasi) have done Pada Puja to HH Sri Mahaperiyava 

when HH toured AP with HH Pudhu Periayava.


Brahmachari Sri Kuppa Venkateshwara Prasada Sharma was born in Tirupati in 1993 to Sri 

Kuppa Shivasubrahmanya Avadhani and Smt. Seetha Nagalakshmi. He belongs to the 

Kaundinya Gotra and is a native of Anantavaram, Guntur District, Andhra Pradesh. The 

Brahmachari had his Upanayanam at the age of five and began his first lessons in Krishna 

Yajur Veda under his grandfather and Yajur Vedic scholar, Sri Kuppa Ramagopala 

Vajapeyayaaji. He continued his Vedic education up to Krishna Yajur Veda Kramanta under 

his illustrious father, who is currently serving as Principal of TTD Veda Pathashala in 

Tirumala and as Project Officer in Dharma Prachara Parishad managed by TTD.


Born in a family of disciples of the Sringeri Jagadguru, the Brahmachari had accompanied 

his father while the latter had come to Sringeri to participate in Dharmic activities in the 

years 2006, 2008 and 2009. The Darshan of Jagadguru Sri Sri Bharati Tirtha Mahaswamiji 

during these visits made a profound impact on the Brahmachari. The Brahmachari 

expressed his desire of studying Shastras directly under the Jagadguru in early 2009. With 

the blessings and consent of Jagadguru Mahaswamiji, the Brahmachari took refuge under 

His Lotus Feet of the in June 2009. Under the tutelage of the Jagadguru, the Brahmachari 

mastered the Sanskrit language. Then, the Jagadguru Himself taught the Brahmachari the 

entire Tarka Shastra. The Brahmachari is endowed with Guru Bhakti, scholarship in the 

Vedas and Shastras, adherence to tradition and dispassion.


Sishya sweekaram is slated to be on Jan 22nd and Jan 23rd, and Sanyasa day is on Jan 

23rd, 2015 at Sringeri!. The next 3 days are the 125th year celebrations of Sringeri 

Patashala which was started by His Holiness Sri Sri Sachidananda Shivabinava Narasimha 

Bharathi Mahaswamigal.


All are requested to attend the function and obtain the Graces of the Acharyas and be 

blessed!



He is Sri Sri Vidhushekhara Bharati Mahaswamiji now!

  6. Very much thankful for the great pictures taken before and after Sishya Swiikaaram! The last picture is not taken at Vidya Shankara Temple. It seems to be in a more modern construction housing the Adhishtaanam of a Mahaan! I am not aware where this place is! Where Maha Sannidhaanam and Sannidhaanam are coming down the steps is Sri Vidya Shankara Temple next to Sri Saradha Temple at Sringeri! Hara Hara Shankara, jaya Jaya Shankara!
