Visit to Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra at Bangalore – 2014

Ms. Shubha Murthy had sent a couple of emails to talk to Sri. Gurushesha, the founder of Kamadhenu Kshetra. I wanted to talk to Sri. Gurushesha while I was in Bangalore so waited until I traveled to India.

My visit to India for work was the most stressful one. I had to work for the project in Bangalore, and also manage a few of my projects in the USA. Most week days I worked for 14-15 hours. No sleep, and with jet lag made the trip very hectic and stressful.

Even before I traveled to India, I knew I wanted to visit Mantralaya and see our beloved Rayaru. I wanted to thank our beloved Rayaru personally and hence wanted to visit there.

When I returned from Mantralaya on 21st, early morning, my co-sister Ms. Vasanthi called me and asked if I was able to visit Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra. As I had just come back from Mantralaya, I told Ms. Vasanthi that I would rather talk to Sri. Gurushesha over the phone than visit Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra. Vasanthi said she will talk to Sri. Gurushesha and keep me posted. Later in the evening she called and told that Sri. Gurushesha really wants to talk to you, and it would be great if you could make time to visit Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra. My Mom said ” when someone is asking you to come, why not go there, Rayaru wants to go visit, so please go”. I called back Vasanthi, and said that I would be coming.

Next day being Saturday, Sri. Gurushesha sent us a taxi, so Mr. Ramesh ( my brother-in-law), Ms. Vasanthi and myself traveled to Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra. we reached there around 9.30 AM. I was given a royal treatment by everyone at the temple, including Sri. Gurushesha. This was the most humbling experience for me. I would have missed the opportunity to see our Beloved Rayaru and the experiences I heard from Sri. Gurushesha about Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra.

Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra is undergoing major construction, and lots of activities are being performed. How I wish I could be close to Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra and help in many of these activities. If you are in Bangalore, you should definitely visit Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra and get the blessings of our beloved Rayaru and also Sri. Gurushesha. It is an unbelievable place, and our Rayaru is truly there helping his devotees. Sri. Gurushesha has done tremendous work and I am amazed to see his energy while talking to devotees. In spite of his busy schedule, Sri. Gurushesha spent almost the entire morning giving me a tour of the construction, talking to me, telling me some of the miracles. To top it all, Sri. Gurushesha gave me some amazing books on our Beloved Rayaru. I hope to share some of the songs and miracles soon. My koti koti ( millions & millions) namaskaras to our beloved Rayaru and also Sri. Gurushesha.

A million thanks to Ms. Shubha Murthy, Ms. Vasanthi and Mr. Ramesh. Without their persistence I wouldn’t have the chance to visit Sri Kamadhenu Kshetra.

Below are some amazing pictures I took, a few were taken by my brother-in-law(Mr. Ramesh) as well.

Mantralaya Visit – 2014

The visit to Mantralaya was amazing. I went with my Parents on November 19th Wednesday night, reached early morning on Thursday 20th. We attended all the pooja celebrations, stayed until 9.00 PM night, and returned back to Bangalore on Friday early morning.

The entire day we spent was magical. Even though the Mutta was crowded, since we had given for special pooje, we were allowed close to the Brindavana. It was humbling seeing our beloved Rayaru.

Below are some pictures from this years visit.

The walkway to the Thungabhadra River has been cleaned thoroughly. My Dad and I walked half way and I took a few pictures. The river is dry and so we didn’t venture going very close.

Shree Raghavendra Sthavana

This is one of the oldest lyrics I have in my book given to me by my Late Grandfather. It has the lyrics for Shree Raghavendra Sthavana. I learned the lyrics by my Mom.

During the Aaradhane the past three days, I was reciting this to our beloved Rayaru. My Husband recorded it today during the evening pooje. Attached is the video for the same. I will post the lyrics as and when I get time.

Update: Shri Raghavendra Swamy Purvaradhana/Madhyaradhana Pictures

Please take a look at the Shri Raghavendra Swamy urvaradhana/Madhyaradhana pictures from Mantralaya. Just amazing. And a billion thanks to SRSMUTT for the links.
