The people in the villages and towns of Sircilla District arose with curiosity, when they heard the wheels of a chariot rumbling through their areas. People stopped and first took notice of the message painted on the chariot.

It said:

“Ramanujacharya – The most compassionate person, who stood atop a Temple Go:puram[1]and granted the most auspicious confidential maha manthram to all those interested, irrespective of their caste and creed.

Ramanujacharya – The upholder of religious duties and rules, who ensured proper celebrations of ‘Brahmotsavams’ by establishing the grand ‘ma:da veedhi[2]in Tirumala”

The message has immense significance. It gives a feeling of being part of a divine cause, without being castigated due to birth or creed. It brings a sense of unity and equality.

People of the Sircilla, quickly gathered and welcomed the grand “ratham”. They moved along with the chariot in a procession. They offered “mangala a:rathi” (a divine fire ritual) and submitted their obeisances to Sri Ramanujacharya.

The beautifully adorned divine chariot “Sri Bhagavad Ramanuja Pracha:ra Ratham” traveled through the district of Rajanna Sircilla, propagating the significance of Statue of Equality alongside giving the updates of all the upcoming events at Divyasaketham – Samshabad.

On April 21 2019 the Ratham made its way to Avvunur, Katkuru, Thangallapally, Chinnalingapur, Avantharam Mandals of Rajanna District; On April 19 2019, the Ratham journeyed through Ellareddy Pet mandal of Rajanna District.
