Nannagari Aaradhanotsavam is being celebrated as Dhanyabhishekam at Jillellamudi on February 17th every year as a sacred ritual, the objective being that Amma’s husband Sri Brahmandam Nageswara Rao garu, reverentially called Nannagaru is actually responsible for the continuous feeding that has been going on in Jillellamudi for decades together. Even before the advent of Annapurnalayam, as a familial head, Nannagaru used to treat all visitors to Jillellamudi with due respect and courtesy and arrange for their food and shelter out of his modest means. Amma, as an obedient housewife, used to cook food and serve them. As the number of visitors started to swell slowly, Annapurnalayam came into existence as known to everybody.
As such, in his honor and as a fitting tribute, on the annual day of his demise, a function is being organized titled Dhanyabhishekam, meaning Abhishekam (ablution) with Dhanyam, ie., Paddy or Rice. This program has been established as a tradition with the participation of a large number of devotees, farmers in Jillellamudi and other places, far and near.
This year celebrations on 17th February, 2019 were conducted on a highly satisfactory note with the participation of a large number of devotees / visitors. Many farmers have brought paddy produced in their own fields and offered it to Nannagaru as a mark of respect and gratitude. Those who could not bring Paddy or Rice made contributions in the form of cash through online transfers and in person. The Paddy or rice collected is being used to meet the needs of Annapurnalayam throughout the year.
