Udupi, Jan 15, 2020: Admar Mutt junior seer Eshapriya Theertha Swami, who will soon ascend the ‘Sarvajna Peeta’ in Sri Krishna Mutt in Udupi, said his only concern was to protect the environment and had no big plans in his mind.
The junior seer completed his early education at Theerthahalli and received his Mechanical Engineering degree from Jawaharlal Nehru National College of Engineering in Shivamogga. The seer has studied Vedas and obtained religious education under Padubidri Laxminarayana Sharma. He met Vishwapriya Theertha Swami during 2004-06 and was attracted towards spirituality. The seer studied the religious texts under the guidance of Palimaru seer Vidyadheesha Theertha Swami.
Speaking on his forthcoming paryaya elevation he stated that his first responsibility is to offer prayers to Lord Krishna and follow the path of my senior Vishwapriya Theertha Swami, just following the order of the ‘Guru’. Keen on initiating action to save environment from pollution, priority to organic farming and promote indigenous agricultural activities. Rice that is grown through organic farming will be used for ‘Naivedya’ (offering to Lord). The plantation crops like banana will be promoted. Will try best to stop the use of plastics in and around the mutts. Plans to use copper utensils for cooking in the mutt and changes will be within the traditions. Further, improving the groundwater. Scarcity of water is a major problem. Admar Mutt has already introduced rainwater harvesting system and percolation techniques.
He pointed out that he is blessed and obliged for being entrusted with such a huge responsibility, Lord Krishna has given this opportunity to serve him and will follow senior and try to fulfill his aspirations, as per expectations of the ‘Guru’.
The influence of Western culture on society is superfluous, human bonding is disappearing and is becoming commercialized. Everything has become immaterial and valueless. The society needs to be built on the base of values, moralities and respect for human relations. His aims and aspirations are a s per the needs of his Guru at all times.
