New Delhi [India], July 16 (ANI): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday met Vishvesha Teertha Swami of the Pejawara Matha, Udupi, on the occasion of Guru Purnima.

"A special day made even more special. On the blessed occasion of Guru Purnima, had the honour of spending time with Sri Vishvesha Teertha Swamiji of the Sri Pejawara Matha, Udupi. Learning from him and hearing his thoughts is a very humbling experience," he said in a tweet.
