KUMBAKONAM: Rangarajachariyar (56), a Sankara Mutt padasala teacher at Kumbakonam, has been appointed as the new Jeer (46th Jeer) of Ahobila Mutt.

Srimad Azhagiya Singar is the 45th Jeer. Rangarajachariyar said that he and his family members were traditionally the devotees of Ahobila Mutt.

“I have been working for the past 30 years as the Rig veda teacher of the Sankara Mutt Padasala at Kumbakonam. Born at Thillaivilagam in Tiruvarur district (previously in Thanjavur district) I studied at Padasalas at Thirupathi, Nasarathpettai, etc. My grandfather Paruthichery Venkatachariyar was associated with Ahobila Mutt. I accept this with the blessings of Azhagiya Singar,” the new Jeer said.
