Mangaluru, Oct 28, 2017: Vishwesha Tirtha Swami of Paryaya Pejawar Mutt, who had undergone a surgical procedure for hernia, was discharged from the Kasturba Hospital here on Oct 27, Friday.
The 86-year-old seer who arrived on the Sri Krishna Mutt premises in a vehicle was taken in a wheelchair and then taken in a lift located at the Anna Brahma dining hall complex and from there to his room at the Badagu Malige, the administrative office complex of Sri Krishna Mutt/Temple.
Speaking to mediapersons, the seer said that normally doctors advised three months rest after such a surgical procedure. However, the doctors at the Kasturba Hospital had told him not to climb steps, not to walk too much and not to lift heavy things. But they had permitted him to participate in some daily activities, he said.
The seer praised the doctors of the hospital for the way in which they had given him medical treatment and also for the care given to him during his two-day stay there.
Raghuram Acharya, Dewan of Pejawar Mutt, told media that the doctors had allowed the seer to do his daily duties and participate in the programmes as the latter could not do without it. “He feels uneasy and unhealthy, if he does not do his daily duties,” he said.
Though the seer arrived at the temple around 3.30 p.m., he performed the Chamara Seve at the mantapa near the sanctum sanctorum at 7 p.m., he said.
According to Acharya, a total of 14 pujas are offered to Lord Krishna daily at the temple. The Paryaya seer has to perform the three important pujas — Jagara Puje at 5.30 a.m., Mahapuje at 9 a.m. and the Chamara Seve at 7 p.m.
Meanwhile, Vishwesha Tirtha read newspapers and other books at his room at the Badagu Malige, while also taking rest.
