A brief history about Bhagavatha Sathram
As early as in 1982 a few Kerala Brahmin Scholars in and around 2 or 3 neighboring villages in a remote part of Kerala started chanting “Namas” of Lord Narayanan once in a month in the house of each Scholar and then they decided to have an annual celebration of this ritual. Accordingly they approached Brahmashree “Bhagavatha Hamsam” Malliyoor Sankaran Namboothiri, a saintly personality who had conducted more than 2500 Bhagavatha Sapthahams, for his blessings & guidance. He advised them to go ahead and named the function as “Sreemad Bhagavatha Sathram”. The first “Bhagavatha Sathram” was conducted in August 1983 in the premises of Lord Sri Krishna in a village called Kurichithanam in Kottayam Dist. in Kerala as the anniversary which was the first step to propagate the ideas and advices contained in the Holy book ” Bhagavatham” among the devotees in Kerala as well as in the whole of Bharath and even in the whole world gradually. The essence of Bhagavatham is “Bhakthi”, selfless sincere , and uncompromising.
