Today was Pradhana Anagha Ashtami. The designated day to perform Anagha Vratam.

For over 2 hours, Anagha Vratam was performed with utmost devotion and dedication by hundreds of devotees, listening to the Mantras chanted by Datta Peetham scholars led by Vamshi Krishna Ghanapathi. Later Sri Swamiji, explained Anagha Vratam was not any other Puja but a phenomenon of Mental Worship. As Anagha is the embodiment of Vishnu Maya. And the eight sons i.e. Ashta Siddhis are the products of mastering the delusion. Devotees who perform the Vratam can overcome difficulties and flourish with confidence. Later, it was announced that the money collections are donated for Tsunami Relief Fund. At 4 PM, Sri Swamiji left for Dharmavaram.
