Absence of Admar and Puttige Shree:
Madhwaacharya, who installed Shree Krishna in Udupi had opened Astamathas for performing daily Pooja and had distributed power of administration equally to Astamathas.But of late, in recent days, it is very rare to be seen organizing the programmes of Mathas collectively.
This has been documented in today’s Kaaniyoor Shree’s Paryaya procession and Darbar meet.
In spite of extending an invitation by Kaaniyoor Shree, both Admar and Puttige Swamijis have desisted from attending both the programmes.Admar Shree has taken his individual decision of not to attend in procession and Darbar since many years of Paryaya,accordingly this year also he did not attend. But Puttige Shree, it was told that in order to escape from awkwardness for Kaaniyoor Shree, he has taken this stand, it says.
Ever since Puttige Maths Shreesugunendra Tirtha Swamiji had gone abroad for religious propaganda after his second Paryaya, still some of the Maths are opposing it. That is why, it was inevitable to stay away since 11 Paryayas, sources said.
Exposed different conduct:
Although soft natured and soft mannered Kaaniyoor Shree had good relationhip, rapport with all the Yathis of Astamathas, today by not participating both in procession and Darbar, differences of opinions amongst Yathis clearly came to light.
While five Yathis participating for first time in vehicle palanquins, Shirur Shree only in his palanquin with Ganapati idol in it participated in open jeep.
