Prime Minister Narendra Modi mourns demise
of Pejavar Math chief Vishvesh Tirtha Swami Vishwesh Teertha Swami, chief of Pejawar Math,
is no more. He died at the age of 88. He breathed his last at Udupi Sri Krishna Math
on Sunday morning. He was ill for a long time. He was admitted to KMC Hospital on
20 December after his health worsened. It was only after Vishwesh Tirtha Swamy’s wish
that he was brought to the monastery on Sunday, where he breathed his last. On the death
of Swamiji, the Government of Karnataka has declared a three-day (29, 30 and 31 December)
state mourning. Many political personalities including PM Narendra Modi have mourned his
death. Vishvesh Tirtha Swami was undergoing treatment
for pneumonia. They were placed on the life support system. A special team of doctors
of KMC Hospital was treating him. According to doctors, there was no improvement in Swamiji’s
health. Last Saturday, Karnataka Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa also went to the hospital to
know Swami ji’s condition. Speaking to the media after exiting, the CM had said, ‘Swamiji’s
condition is critical. Doctors are trying everything possible and now we have left it
all to Lord Krishna. PM Narendra Modi tweeted his pictures with
Vishvesh Tirtha Swamy, writing, ‘Swamiji will always be in the hearts and minds of millions
of people whom he showed the right path. He was full of spirituality and service. He
contributed greatly to the society. I consider myself blessed that I had many opportunities
to learn from Visvesh Tirtha Swamiji. Recently meeting with him on the auspicious day of
Guru Purnima was memorable. His knowledge has always been meaningful. My thoughts are
with his countless followers. Let us tell that former Union Minister Uma
Bharti has been in Udupi for the last one week despite poor health. In 1992, he took
retirement from Vishvesh Tirtha Swamy. On Sunday morning, upon reaching the news of
Swamiji reaching Udupi Sri Krishna Math, she reached the Math. Shortly afterwards, Swamiji
breathed his last.
