The Shankaracharya of Sringeri Sharada Peeth, Swami Bharati Teertha conducted the Abhishek of Jyotish Peeth Shankaracharya Swami Avimukteshwaranand Saraswati and Dwarka Sharada Peeth Shankaracharya Swami Sadanand Saraswati. The ritual was conducted amidst Vedic chants in the temple of goddess Sharadamba, the presiding deity of the Sringeri Peeth.
Before the ritual, the seer blessed the two new Shankaracharyas and announced in Sanskrit that he was conducting the Abhishek of the successors of the departed Dwarka Peeth Shankaracharya with Avimukteshwaranand Saraswati being the Shankaracharya of Jyotish Peeth and Sadanand Saraswati being the Shankaracharya of Dwarka Peeth. It is pertinent to mention here that the recently deceased Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati had introduced the two as his successors in front of the Sringeri Peeth Shankaracharya at an event held in Bengaluru during 2007.
The Abhishek of the two new Shankaracharyas was conducted on the first day of Navratri on Monday.
