2020 Sree Raghavendra Swamy Poorva Aaradhane Pictures

From Mantralaya – Sree Raghavendra Swamy Poorva Aaradhane Pictures

From my home. It was quite emotional doing Rayaru Seva this year. As you all know Mom was one of the greatest devotee of Rayaru. When I was upset on Rayaru when she was in hospital, she kept telling me “Rayaru Mahanubhavaru, Yake Avara mele kopa Meera”. She came in my dream also and asked me not to be upset on Rayaru and it was time for her to go.

Anyone of us was sick, had trouble, or anything not working according to plan, you could count on Mom to do Rayaru Seva. And she diligently visited 4TH T block Mutta and offered her thanks. Almost every month she used to perform Kanakabhisheka for Rayaru at the mutta. Rain or shine she had to go see Rayaru every Thursday.
Every year, as soon as I performed day 1 Seva, I used to do a video chat and show her my Pooja room. She used to be so happy and always asked me to not overdo, and not restrict food too much. While doing Seva I eat just 1 meal, no coffee, no tea, no fruits, just lunch at noon and nothing else.

This year, all those memories came back as soon as I finished day 1 Pooja. My dad was with me and he did Saligrama Pooje, and Panchamrutha Abhisheka for God and Rayaru. Tulasi and Kanakambara from our own garden. I tied the garland with both Tulasi and Kanakambara.

As my extended family I thought of sharing with you all my thoughts today. I need your blessings and positive thoughts to get strength to bear the loss.

Lets all pray together to Rayaru to cure COVID from this world.

Guru Sarvabhowma Ki Jai.
