As a part of the birthday celebration of Hymavathi Devi, the annual event, recital of Lalitha SahasraNamam ten million times took place at Jillellamudi on 22nd November. The Hymavathi Devi’s 63rd Jayanthi celebrations started on 15th Nov (Karthika Poornima) with the commencement of Hymavathi Janayithri Vratham and culminated with the Koti Nama Parayana.

The students of Matrusri Oriental College and High School beautifully decorated Himalaya with buntings and flowers. The students have actively participated not only in doing the parayana but also in making the required physical arrangements.

Hundreds of persons, most of them women, came from far and near places and participated in the recital. The atmosphere reverberated with the sacred chanting of the divine names. The recital was done with devotion and in a disciplined way. The climate was cool with an overcast sky and every one who participated felt the blessings of Amma and Hyma.

Sri Chakka Srimannaryana took keen initiative in mobilizing a good number of participants. Sri E.Hanuma Babu with the help of the College Lecturers and students effectively coordinated the Parayana and Puja activities.
