SRI RAYAR RAGAVENDRA - with the celestial cow Kamadhenu
Sri Raghavendra is the founder pontiff of the Madhwa Peedam. Born in Bhuvanagiri, he attained jeeva samaadhi in a Tulasi Brindhavanam at Mantralaya in the presence of several followers. At the Arogya Peedam he has been included in recognition of the rich heritage of gurus in this country.
Never before has Sri Raghavendra been depicted with Kamadhenu, the celestial cow.
When Swamigal visited this mutt , a gentleman gifted him a crawling Krishna that had been worshipped in the family for over 250 years! This idol has been installed at the base of the Raghavendra idol.
