  4. Thanks for the information about 60 Samvatsara Names. The year which we born will come again when we reach 60 years. So everybody would perform special Parikaram/pooja to keep ourselves in forthcoming years. That is all I know about this.

  5. The upcoming new year is very special to us, as our great Jagad Guru Sriman Madhwacharyaru avatara happened in a HEVILAMBI Samvatsara(1238).
