Over twenty years ago Swami Paramananda Bharati organized a KoTi LS archana
involving thousands of suvasini-s who were the kartri-s and paurohityam was
done by some who gave instructions to them all through the puja. This was
held in the compound of Sringeri MaTha, Bangalore. I was a witness to that
mega event where over 50,000 (some put it at 1 lakh) participated.
