Udupi: Sode Vadiraj Mutt on Wednesday announced 16-year-old Aniruddha Saralatthaya as successor to Sri Lakshmivara Tirtha Swamiji of Udupi Shirur Mutt.
Aniruddha will ascend the seat as the 31st seer at Sode Mutt in Sirsi, Uttara Kannada, on May 14.
Since Late Lakshmivara Tirtha had not named a successor, Sode Mutt, Shirur Mutt's dwandva mutt, was entrusted with the task of selecting a seer for the latter. “Naming a teenager as the heir to Ashta Mutts in Udupi is a practice that is followed in the Shastras recommendations,” said Sode Mutt seer Sri Vishwavallabha Tirtha.
