History of  Sri Guru Raghavendra Math, Kavoor 

Raghavendra Math Kavooru

Back in early 1990’s, the land – which is now the Holy Abode of Sri Raghavendra Swami – was just another piece in the large landscape besides the Kulur-Kavoor road. No one would have imagined it will one day bear the sacred Brindavanam, except Sri Guru Raya himself and his ardent devotee Smt. Rohini Sadashiva Rao (or Rohini Amma as she was lovingly called) – whom He chose to lead the effort to find this shrine in order to bless the devotees near and far.

Kodange Shanubhog Sri Anantharam Rao’s second son Sri K. Sadashiva Rao had transferred this ancestral land to his wife Rohini Amma as part of his Will. She had been worshipping Guru Raghavendra Swami at home since her childhood and regularly attending Guru bhajans initially at Sharaavu temple and then at Kadri temple for many years. Having realized the effects of Sri Guru Raya’s blessings herself first hand, she felt it was important to help others – who are in need – to get the love and blessings of Sri Raghavendra Swami by constructing a Brindavanam. Driven by a sense of purpose and unwavering determination, Rohini Amma made up her mind to donate her land for the cause.

In order to jump start the construction of sanctum sanctorum and the surrounding building, she sold additional land of hers to raise the funds quickly. Help started coming-in from other devotees in various forms such as Mahadwaram, Office room, roof cover – just to name a few. As the building work progressed, the planning for sculpture of Brindavanam and Deities began. Through divine coincidence, there was already a beautiful Brindavanam waiting for this exact moment – along with the idols of Lord Krishna and Lord Mukhyaprana at Padubidri! Sri Padubidri Govardhan – who was a great devotee of Sri Guru Raya – had gotten them sculpted with the anticipation of someday consecrating them. However, for one reason or the other it did not materialize for many years. Upon being approached, he readily donated the Brindavanam and idols to be installed at Ambica Nagar.

Guided and blessed by the Acharyas and sages, the Brindavanam and the idols were consecrated in the sanctum sanctorum in May 1998. Since then, countless devotees have been visiting the shrine offering their prayers and services. The Brindavanam has been the refuge for the devotees offering them solace, peace of mind and reassurance that Sri Guru Raya always has their back. The dream of Rohini Amma is being fulfilled every moment when a devotee connects with Sri Guru Raya at the Brindavanam.

The road until now has not been easy. It will never be easy… but for those with unwavering devotion, purity of goal and rock solid determination, Sri Raghavendra Swami will open up the pathways in manners which seem miraculous to the normal eyes. What you see today at the land in Ambica Nagar – overlooking the arterial road – is the result of selfless services each and every day by countless devotees who have adopted this Brindavanam as their own. With Guru Raya’s blessings and the efforts of His devotees it will continue to grow and become the center for spiritual and social activities in the region.

Dr. V. Ravichandran and family’s association with Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy Matha, Kavoor, Mangalore.

– Mrs. Indira Ravichandran is a great devotee of Sri Raghavendra Swamiji and has been performing the puja in His name every Thursday’s without fail for over 40 years irrespective of the location and time zone she lives in.

– Dr. Ravichandran and family have been supporting various temples of Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy both in Mangalore as well as Mantralaya.

– They are also great devotees of His Holiness Shri Shri Vidhyadheesha Theertha Swamiji, the present Paryaya of Sri Palimaru Mutt. Their association with Shri Shri Shri Vidhyadheesha Theertha Swamiji goes back to almost 30 years when they started their first I.T business venture ‘Sri Guru Computers’ in Puttur with only 1 computer in the year 1989. His Holiness Palimaru Swamiji was the chief guest for that function and he had inaugurated and blessed their business venture then. From that time on Dr. Ravichandran & his fly have ventured into several businesses and presently their IT Company is known as Diya Systems with an employee strength of approx. 1800+. – Dr. V. Ravichandran and Mrs. Indira Ravichandran believe that their Company’s growth and success over the years and what they are today is only because of the choicest blessings showered on them by Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy and His Holiness Sri Palimar Swamiji. They have been a source of strength and have blessed them in every aspect of their lives. A lot of miracles have happened in their lives and also their children and grand children are divinely blessed by Him.

How the dream project of building a new Sri Guru Raghavendra Swamy Matha was conceived:

– Around 10 years back Dr. V. Ravichandran and his wife Mrs. Indira Ravichandran had visited Sri Guru Raghavendra Matha on request by one of their ex staff who mentioned that the Matha was in real need of some financial assistance to manage the day to day activities. They were informed that this Matha was managed by Rohini Amma (as she was known by the local residents) who was a staunch devotee of Shri Guru Raghavendra Swamiji and also mother of Sri Ramananda Rao who was managing the Trust back then.

– During their first visit to this Matha, when Dr. Ravichandran and Mrs. Indira Ravichandran were standing in front of the Sanctum Sanctorum of Sri Raghavendra Swamy, Rohini Amma caught hold of Mrs. Indira Ravichandran’s hand despite them not knowing each other previously. Rohini Amma requested her that someday you’ll have to support this Matha and take it forward and Dr. Ravichandran and Mrs. Indira Ravichandran were perplexed with what she told to them. They didn’t know how to react to her statement and they didn’t give Rohini Amma any kind of commitment back then, however, they started supporting the Matha towards the temple expenses every month and they continued supporting the Matha for almost 10 years without fail.

– 3 years back Dr. Ravichandran and Mrs. Indira Ravichandran were informed that Rohini Amma’s health was deteriorating. They visited her and made her recollect the request she had made to them to support the Matha. With this thought in mind, Dr. Ravichandran had met His Holiness Sri Sri Vidhyadheesha Theertha Swamiji and explained to him about Rohini Amma’s wish that she had made to them around 10 years back and requested His Holiness to take over Sri Raghavendra Matha. They promised to help Him in the Matha’s day to day activities incase he agreed and thanks to His Holiness, Shri Palimaru Swamiji readily agreed with an affirmative.

– Once His Holiness agreed to take over Sri Guru Raghavendra Matha under his care, Dr. Ravichandran and his wife met Rohini Amma’s son Sri Ramananda Rao and discussed about their meeting with His Holiness Palimaru Swamiji. He and his brothers agreed to handover the Matha, to be managed under the able guidance of Sri Palimar Matha.

– Dr. Ravichandran and his wife visited Rohini Amma during the last stage of her life and informed her happily that the wish she had made to them 10 years back was now being fulfilled with the approval and blessings of His Holiness Sri Sri Sri Palimar Swamiji.

– We would be failing in our duty if we do not mention the sacrifices that Sri. Ramananda Rao has done inorder to take care of his mother Rohini Amma and simultaneously run this Matha over the years with very limited means and also for the magnanimity and generosity of his two brothers Sri Ganesh Sundar Rao & Sri Kumaraswamy Rao, who donated the land and Shri Raghavendra Matha comprising of 21 cents, free of cost to Shri Palimaru Matha. I’m very sure that their mother Rohini Amma must be the happiest person showering her blessings on her children and all of us from heaven above. From our side, we can say that her dream has been fulfilled today.

– In addition to this land donation, Sri Palimaru Matha Trust in mutual consideration with Dr. V. Ravichandran and his family, also thought about the future expansion of the Matha and for various activities of the Matha, they purchased the surrounding land of additional 30.75 cents.
– The Trust had taken an oath to renovate and extend the existing premises of Shri Guru Raghavendra Matha to provide additional facilities such as Vishranthi Gruha for Ashtamatha Swamijis, Veda Patha Shaala, Athithi Gruha, dining hall and in addition to this, also build a ‘Community Center’ which could be used by people of all walks of life for spiritual, educational and societal projects for the benefit of devotees to perform any type of functions / celebrations / community related activities.

– In the first phase, my fly and Sri Palimaru Matha Trust have already constructed Vishranthi Gruha for Ashtamatha Swamijis, Veda Patha Shaala, Athithi Gruha, dining hall, Sutthupouli and a Garba Gudi at an estimated cost of Rs. 3 crores.
