Bhava Prachara activities:
Tirupati Samithi organized the first Ramakrishna Vivekananda Bhava Prachara parishad's Bhakta sammelan in the year 1991 at Tirupati. The Sammelan was a grand success with the participation of 1500 devotees from various parts of the state. Besides several monks, Swami Atmasthanandaji Maharaj attended the Sammelan. This sammelan was a trend setter in a way and paved the way for the successful conduct of the sammelans every year in other centres of A.P.
For a second time the Samithi organized the Bhakta Sammelan (11th) of A.P Bhava Prachara Parishad in December 2001, with the participation of a large number of devotees and monks of the order. This Sammelan was a great success.
From the beginning the Samithi organized the discourses of Monks of the Ramakrishna order in the Samithi premises and various educational institutions of Tirupati town. Swamis Ranganathanandaji, Smaranananandaji, Ananyanandaji, Harshanandaji, Gautamanandaji, Jitatamanandaji, Nandanandaji, Paramarthanandaji, Srikantanandaji, Tattwabodhanandaji, Dayatmanandaji, Raghavesanandaji, Atmavidanandaji, Jnanadanandaji, Sasikantanandaji, Aksharatmanandaji and Nikileswaranandaji are some of the monks who addressed the devotees and students. Swami Amritanandaji who was the secretary of Vivekananda college, Chennai conducted classes on Bhagavad Gita and Viveka chudamani every month for about three years in the Tirupati Samithi.
The Samithi also regularly organized discourses by eminent speakers like Sri Samavedam Shanmukha Sarma, Sri Malladi Chandrasekhara Sastri, Sri Samudrala Lakshmanaih, Sri Medasani Mohan, Smt. Choodamani and several others on popular devotional topics.
The Samithi organized several youth conventions on a large scale for the school and college students of Tirupati.
Installation of Swami Vivekananda Statue
An eight foot bronze statue of Swami Vivekananda was installed in the SV Medical college circle. The statue was donated by the Ramakrishna math, Hyderabad. TT Devasthanams built the mandapam and Swami Ranganathanandaji Maharaj unveiled the Statue on 11th September, 1995. The circle has become a land mark in the town and source of inspiration to youth. Samithi coordinated the entire project.
The Samithi opened its first book stall in the railway station of Tirupati in the year 1985. Other book stalls, at Asthana mandapam on the Tirumala hills (1993) Samithi premises, Vinayaka nagar (2002), Sri Nivasam (2006) Sri Padmavathi Ammavari temple Tiruchanur (2007), Sri Kapileswara swami temple (2007), Sri Govindaraja Swamy temple Tirupati (2008) and Sri Vishnunivasam (2011) were started. On average Samithi sells books worth more than Rs.40 lakhs annually and was next only to the Hyderabad Math books sales.
It is the great good fortune of the devotees of Tirupati Samithi to serve visiting monks. On average at least one monk of Ramakrishna Math /Mission visited Tirupati Samithi every fortnight on pilgrimage to Tirumala. The Samithi members serve visiting monks by taking care their stay and darshan of various temples. When the temple of Chennai Math was consecrated (in 2000) 230 monks were hosted by the Tirupati Samithi. Approximately 100 monks visited us in November 2012, when the Kadapa Math temple was consecrated. It would not be an exaggeration if it is stated that more than 500 monks of the order visited the Samithi so far. All the visiting monks appreciated the way the temple and the premises were maintained and most of the monks felt that the temple is extremely conducive for Dhyana.
