Vadiraja Jayanthi falls on Magha sukla paksha Dwadashi. It marks the birthday occasion of Sri Vadirajaru.

Sri Vadiraja Swamy performed the Paryaya at Udupi 5 times (the last time was through his Shishya , and he stayed back at Sode) and he is the one who changed the cycle of Paryaya from 2 months to 2 years.

Birth place: Hoovina kare(Near Kumbhasi)

This is the birth place of Vadiraja Theertharu.

Ramabhatta and Gowri devi , A couple lived near Kumbhasi did not have children for a long time. Once they visited Sri Vagheesa Theetharu of Sodhe Mutt near Kumbhasi and Prayed him to bless them for a child. Vagheesa Theertharu replied they would be blessed with a boy soon and The boy should be handed over to the Matha(To be the next Ascetic) . Parents were not happy on hearing this condition. Swamiji modified the Condition even more as “if Gowri devi gives birth to the boy inside the house, The parents can keep the child, If outside the house, They have to give the Child to the Matha”

About nine months later, one day when the entire family except Gauri were having food, a cow entered the paddy field in front of their house. Immediately Gauri came out of the house and started to chase the cow away.

The cow ran away but Gauri sat down to relax. within few minutes she was in labor and before other members of the house could reach her, Gauri had already delivered a boy.

The baby was named Bhuvaraha and Later become the great Dvaita saint Sri Vadiraja Swamy.
