Tirupati, 28 October 2016: The annual utsavams of the renowned Sri Vaishnavacharya Sri Vedanta Desikacharya will be observed from October 29 till November 7 in the famous shrine of Sri Govinda Raja Swamy in Tirupati.
Born about 750 years ago in Kanchipuram, Sri Vedanta Desikar is believed to be the incarnation of the sacred bell (Ghanta Swarupa) of Lord Venkateswara. Another important coincidence is that both the birth stars of Lord and His devotee is on Shravana Nakshatra in the holy Bhadrapada Masa only.
Sri Desikar rendered Daya Satakam in praise of Lord and He is Guru of his renowned disciple Sri Prativadi Annan who penned Suprabhatam.
