Highlights of the 597th Jayanthi of
Sri Tallapaka Annamacharya
commemorated at 8268, S. State Rd., Spanish Fork, UT-84660
on 18 June 2005 (Saturday) from 5:30pm to 8pm.

This is a remarkable program for SVASA to remember for a long long time as a new page has been opened in the book of programs on wheels for SVASA.  Two devoted board members and two devotee artists took upon to drive 600 miles from home to present this devotional program in the state of Utah.  Driving past the borders of California, the deserts of Nevada, and the red mountains of Arizona, the team reached Spanish Fork to enjoy the lush green meadows and mountains of Utah.  The Krishna temple is located in a beautiful spot surrounded by the green mountains and has an atmosphere of a sanctuary with lamas, peacocks, and parakeets which greeted the team upon arrival at the temple.  On the other side, the devotees at the Krishna temple were never before exposed to this kind of devotional event and were thoroughly enthralled by the content of this devotional service.  During the Sankirtana recital, every inch of the temple was filled with unbounded joy.  The following 15 compositions of Annamacharya were rendered, following the Gurudeva Prardhana, in a span of just over 2 hours:

Appani Vara Prasadi, Nitya Poojalivivo, Bhavayami Gopala Balam, Vinaro Bhaagyamu Vishnu Katha, Namo Narayanaya Saguna Brahmane, Satulaala Choodaray, Kanti Shukravaramu, Eduta Nunnadu Veeday, Kalasapuramu Kaada, Ammamma Emamma, Kondalalo Nelakonna, Veedhula Veedhula Vibhudegeeni, Madhava Kesava, Harinamamu Kadu Ananda Karamu, and Ksheerabhdhi Kanyakaku.

Smt. Soujanya Srinivas, the vocalist, was ably supported on violin by Sri Murali Pavithran and by Sri Dhamodaran Srinivasan on Mridangam.  Caru Das, the temple custodian and the priest, hailed the commentary provided by Satya Duvvuri, president of SVASA.

This event created so much sensation in the local community as to inspire them into inviting SVASA to present another program like this in a couple of months again.

Namo Venkatesaya!
