During Ugadi, the leaves of neem also called Bevu ಬೇವು is mixed with jaggery called Bella ಬೆಲ್ಲ; and is distributed on the occasion. Neem, which is extremely bitter in taste( Kahi) , and jaggery which is sweet and delicious, signify the two different aspects of human life – joy and sorrow.

Authentic Madhwa Recipes page posted on the right hand side has several recipes you can prepare:

    Namaste Meera Ji,

    Wanted to share with you the following information. Would you be able to post it on your blog.

    Thanks,
    Gokul
    His Holiness Parama Poojya *Sri 1008 Sri Sugunendra Teertha Swamiji doing sanchara in Atlanta area, USA.*
    Sri HariVayu Gurubhyo Namah

    Sri Sugunendra Teertha Gurubhyo Namah…

    By the grace of Sri Hari Vayu Gurugalu, we are fortunate and blessed to have been graced by the visit of His *Holiness Parama Poojya Sri 1008 Sri Sugunendra Teertha Swamiji* Chief Pontiff of Puthige Matha to Atlanta. Sri Swamiji started his sanchara from Greenville, South Carolina from 4th March, and is now in Atlanta, and will be there till about 20th March.
    During this sanchara period, Poojya Swamiji will perform the maha pooja to Sri Vitthala Davaru, Sri Lakshmi Bhuvaraha, Sri Srikara Narayana, Sri Dhanvantari and several other deities passed on in the glorious lineage of Sri Puthige Matha, some of which were worshiped by the preceptor of the lineage, Sri Upendra Teertha, and are 750 years old.
    Sri Swamiji will also perform evening Tottilu Pooja to Lord Sri Krishna in the houses of various devotees.
    Additionally, Sudarshana homa and Taptamudradharana will be organized for devotees on Sunday, 11th March, in northern Atlanta. Madhwa priest services are also available during this time for any religious functions like Homa, ShashtiAbdaPoorthi, shraddha etc
    Devotees are encouraged to host Swamiji for pooja or perform Swamiji’s pada pooja during this unique visit. It is the fortune of many births to bring home the deities worshiped by some of the greatest seers in the Madhwa tradition, and to have darshana of them.
    Devotees may utilize this unique opportunity to further their pursuit of jnana, bhakti and vairagya, and obtain the blessings of Sri Sri Sugunendra Teertha Swamiji.

    *Please contact Sandarsh Bharadwaj (SC) 864 593 4270 or

    if you are interested for details of this sanchara, or to schedule padapooja/mahapooja/tottilu pooja.

    Please pass on this information to your relatives / friends in Atlanta Area.
