Madhyaradhane celebrations started early in the morning with H.H. Sri Subudhendra Teertha Swamiji performing padapooje seve to Prahallada Rajaru. T.T.D. officials then presented the sheshavastra, as has become customary in the last few years, which was received by Swamiji, a delight to the eyes- to see Ragappa being offered Venkappa’s vastra!! Mahabhisheka was performed to the glorious rayara brundavana, by H. H. Swamiji. Subsequently, a grand rathothsava was held in the prakara where thousands of devotees were crammed in to witness. Sri Moola Rama Devara pooja was followed by hastodaka to Rayaru and other yati brundavanas at Mantralayam. Lakhs of devotees were served with teertha prasada on the day.
