Koti Gayatri Japa

Koti Gayatri/ Rama-krishna Mantra Japa is a massive initiative undertaken by His Holiness on the account of His guru and the previous pontiff of Sri Uttaradi Math, Shri Satyapramoda Teertha's birth centenary. Thousands of devotees gather multiple times a year at different places across the country to perform Gayatri Mantra Japa and Rama-Krishna Mantra Japa. 

Men perform Thousand Gayatri Japas each and Women thousand Rama-Krishna Japas at every gathering. The count at the end of 2017 would be 100crore Japas of both the mantras and will be dedicated at the feet of Lord Moolarama on the auspicious occasion of Janmashatamanotsava (Birth Centenary) for the global welfare of mankind.

Some may be doubtful about why is this a social service, The answer to that is Tapas. We may donate money or any other material to help someone in need but it is only Tapas that we perform by such spiritual activities which will eradicate such poverty and hunger from the roots. Feeding a starving person can be done by food, But the punya gained by japa wouldn't make room for starving itself at the first place. Dharma teaches us to harness spiritual powers for social welfare and this initiative is a small attempt towards implementation of that lesson.
