The puja and administration of Krishna Matha is distributed among the Swamijis (seer or monk or pontiff) of Ashta Matha's established by Dvaita philosopher Sri Madhvacharya. Each swamiji of every matha gets chance to perform puja to Udupi ShriKrisha by rotation for a period of two years.

During paryaya, the puja and administration of Krishna Matha is handed over from Swamiji of one of Ashta Matha to the Swamiji of another Ashta Matha. It takes place every two years in even numbered years. On 18th January 2016, Shri VishweshaThirtha Swamiji of Pejavara Mutt took over the pooja and administration of ShriKrishna Mutt for the FIFTH time which is record of history, only second such Swamiji had the oppurtunity.

The euphoria and celebrations were unprecedented where people from all over India and abroad, came in lakhs and the preparation and arrangement was flawless and there were'n't any untoward incidence.
