SRIMATHE SRIVAN SADAKOPA SRI RANGANATHA YATHINDRA MAHA DESIKAYA NAMA:
The Almighty Sri Varahar tells Sri Bhoodevi : Hey Devi ! If any Jeevan (Human) thinks of ME when his mind is very sound, his body is in good health conditions, his mental and physical activities are functioning properly; And if he thinks that I am (Emperuman) the form of this entire Universe, and that I am devoid of Birth or Death, and I am Omnipresent… Hey devi ! I promise you that I shall remember such a Jeevan, who is my devotee, when he/she is on his/her last days, lying in the bed like a stone or wood; And I myself undoubtedly Bless him with the Supreme Abode.
The divine temple of Sri Lakshmi Varahar is situated at Natteri Village, near Brahmadesam, Kanchipuram Divya Desam, and Tiruputkuzhi Divya Desam in Tiruvannamalai District, Tamil Nadu. This temple at Natteri is more than 1000 years old. Vishishtadvaita Guru, Sri Bhagavath Ramanujar, who was born over 1000 years ago, is believed to have performed Pooja in this temple. This temple is the abode of Sri Lakshmi Varahar, Sri Komalavalli Thayar, Sri Vishvaksenar, Sri Garudar and Sri Anajaneyar (Hanuman).
Natteri vilage has a hallowed history. As many as 128 Vedic scholars were gifted with residential plots and farmlands by the Nawab of Arcot as honorarium and the village hosted a large Agraharam comprising six streets.
In a significant chapter of Natteri’s history, the village hosted two Jeers of Sri Abobila Mutt with their entourage in a grand manner for several days. His Holiness Srivan Satakopa Sri Veeraraghava Satakopa Yathindra Mahadesikan (the Hon’ble 43rd Srimath Azhagiyasingar) and His Holiness Srivan Satakopa Sri Vedantha Desika Yathindra Mahadesikan (the Hon’ble 44th Srimath Azhagiyasingar) were overwhelmed by the reception and the devotion of the elderly scholars of Natteri and showered their blessings on all devotees and natives of the village. In ancient days, the temple was a massive structure, with a big chariot for the Gods and the village was a personification of prosperity and great intellect. The above were also confirmed in a prashnam conducted at the temple.
Over the centuries, the original temple did not stand the weather of time and Sri Varahar Moorthi, Sri Komalavalli Thaayar Moorthi were later found and placed in the Hanuman Anjaneyar Sannidhi. This Hanuman statue is one of nearly 700 statues installed by His Holiness Sri Vadiraja Swami, in South India.
The Temple Authorities, Trustees, general public and dignitaries, native to Natteri village, under the auspicies of His Holiness the Hon’ble 46th Jeer of Ahobilam Mutt, Srivan Satagopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Mahadesikar, have undertaken to rebuild the temple at its original place and the construction of the temple and associated structures is underway. To ensure that the temple stands the test of time, the same is now being built with ‘heavy stones cut from boulders.’ At present, the construction of Sri Varahar Perumal Sannidhi, Sri Komalavalli Thaayar Sannidhi and Andal Sannidhi are underway. It is estimated that the project would cost around Rs. 1 Crore. At present, daily puja is being performed in the Hanuman Sannidhi for all the Deities.
On 16th October, 2022, the Hon’ble 46th Jeer of Ahobilam Mutt, His Holiness Srivan Satagopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Mahadesikar graced the village and visited the temple with Sri Dolai Kannan, the idol worshipped by Sri Bhagavath Ramanujar and has Blessed all devotees and natives.
