Dear Bhaktas,

Could anyone explain what the
phiolosophical/mythological reason behind Sankranthi?

All I am aware that is signifies the end of Maargazhi
maasam. Moreover, during this day Mantapadi Seva from
krishnar koil nearby, takes place at out residence in
Bangalore.

I was told Sankranthi was to commemorate the
prathisthapana of Lord Krishnar in Udupi by Sri
Madvacharyar.

Thanks and Regards,

Daasan Malolan
