His unfortunate demise was confirmed on Sinday at around 9: 21 AM by the local administration on the presence of Deputy Commissioner.
Vishwesha Theertha Swami was the only seer to have mounted the ‘Paryaya Peetha’ as many as five times since the tradition of bypassing the holy and religious power among the eight mutts spreading around the Udupi’s ‘Sri Krishna temple’ began in 1522.
He was the first ‘paryaya’ in 1954, and this showed his path towards coordinating pro-Hindu altogether in the coastal region.
In the year 1954, he held the All India Madhva Conference in Udupi. The said Oracle was an immense influential public figure and had been closely associated with the ‘Vishwa Hindu Parishad’ and ‘Ram Janmabhoomi movement’ in addition to’ Gau Raksha movements’ in the past.
His contribution towards the world of philanthropy is also remarkable and highly acclaimed in South India.
He established ‘The Sri Krishna Sevashrama’ in Bengaluru and ‘Sri Krishna Chikitsaalaya’ in Udupi in which only poor and down trodden are taken care and treated free of cost.
