Sri Jayendra Saraswathi's mortal remains placed in Samadhi in Mutt premises


Amidst chanting and prayers by devotees, the mortal remains of the 69th pontiff of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham (mutt), Sri Jayendra Saraswathi, were placed in a 'samadhi' on the mutt premises in Kancheepuram on Thursday morning. The Samadhi was constructed right next to the one that serves as the brindavanam of the 68th pontiff Sri Chandrasekarendra Saraswathi.

Sri Jayendra Saraswath passed away on February 28 due to breathing problems. The poojas for installation were conducted with the recitation of slokas. 

The mutt's current pontiff Sri Vijayendra Saraswathi performed the poojas for his guru.
