Blog Break – Visting India

I am so very excited to let you all know that I am traveling to Bangalore, India early next week. My Sister is accompanying me. My family and my Sister’s family are unable to join us since they have work, and school. We will miss them all each and every moment.

We are visiting India to celebrate the 80th birthday of our Father.

We will be visiting Mantralaya, Tirupathi and a few other places. We will be in India for two weeks.

It is unbelievable that I will be seeing our beloved Rayaru, Lord Sreenivasa. The last time I visited Mantralaya was in 2009, and Tirupathi was in 2006. So, it is going to be a very fun and exciting trip.

I am going to bring back lots of memories, pictures, books, and many more articles to post. I am not sure I would have too much time to write from Bangalore. So, no more posts until end of October. Hopefully, I will be able to add some posts in time for Diwali.

      Thanks for the wishes. I am very excited and sad as well. Excited for my Father’s b-day, sad that my family isn’t able to join. This trip will be the most memorable since it is a trip we are taking for our Father.


  3. Welcome. Have a great time on the trip. Look forward to your posts following your trip. You can perhaps visit Bichhali also. Traveling in Andhra Pradesh is a bit of a challenge now, with the escalated trouble in connection with Telangana.

      Dear Sir,
      Namaskara. Thanks so much for the invitation. This time I have very less time, I will surely visit next time. My Father’s Sister resides in Chennai, so I will definitely make a visit during my next trip.
      Thanks again for the invitation.

    Namaskara Meera…. I am excited to know that you are in Bangalore for two weeks in October. I am also coming to Bangalore from Kuala Lumpur on 11th October, staying there for 3 weeks. I would like to meet you if you are still in Bangalore by then, otherwise we can catch up on a call, if you have time. My mobile # in Blr is 9886385122.

    My father is the Founder of Rayara Mutt in Ulsoor (now called Halasuru) and my brother is taking care of it now after my father’s demise. Please drop by if you can spare a couple of hours.

    May God shower His Blessings on the 80th Birthday of your father, it reminds me of my father’s 80th Birthday wherein a couple of Swamiji’s had graced the occasion with all relatives and friends, we celebrated with so many activities. It is really a great honor to be part of this celebration.

    You have a safe trip and look forward to all the pictures and postings.

    Happy Navarathri!

    Hello Meera,
    Have a happy & safe journey to India, good darshan @ Mantralaya , Tirupati.Two weeks is such a short time, and I think your schedule is tight. Besides there are so many Rayara mutt and temples in Bangalore itself! Enjoy your trip!

      Thanks, Shubha. Yes, there are many temples in Bangalore, but visting Mantralaya is special. Seeing the Brindavana where our Rayaru entered is even more special.
