Back from India

We returned this Saturday morning from India. It was a memorable trip with a million memories made for a lifetime. I can’t imagine how one month flew by.

The first week we attended our Mysore Ajji’s annual yearly ceremony. It was satisfying to be part the ceremony for everything Ajji has done. It was held in VidyaPeetha Bangalore, so was able to see Lord Krishna, Vadirajaru and Rayaru there.

Second week, we visited most our relatives houses and also according to my Father’s wish Kamadhenu Kshetra and Honnava Rayaru Mutta. I had posted a blog about the same. On Ekadashi, we visited Chickpete Rayara mutta. The first mutta in Bangalore almost 200+ years old. May 13th Dwadashi, we visted Malleshwaram Rayara mutta and also had Vasanthotasava Phalahara which I always wished I had. On Narashima Jayanthi, Mantralya Swamigalu visited NR Colony Mutta, and we were able to get Mudra Dharana by Swamigalu.

Third week, Monday – Thursday night we visited Dharmasthala, Southadka, Udupi, Pajaka Kshetra, Murudeshwara, Gokarna, a few temples in Sirsi, Sondha, Hairhara and the last stop was Seebi Narasimha. It was just my Father, Husband and myself. In Udupi, my Father and Husband both did Prathyaksha Go Dana, Gograsa Seva, Chamara Seva and Thotilu Seva.

Fourth week, we visited Mantralaya. On the way, we also visited Ananthpur Rayara mutta, had theertha prasada before we drove to Mantralaya. We also visited Bichhale. This time it was my Sister and her Husband who also accompanied us. We once again visited Kamadhenu Kshetra and Honnava Rayaru Mutta so my Sister could see. She had never been to any of these places.

In between, we visited NR Colony Rayaru mutta almost everyday we were in Bangalore. Visited several temples in Malleshwaram – Lord Narashima Temple, Durga temple, Ganesha temple . Ambha Bhavani temple in NR Colony.

I will try and compile pictures and videos of my visit and post them. The pooje and seeing Swamigalu in Udupi and the sevas we performed transformed us three to a different state of mind. It was mind blowing, exhilarating and just out of this world. Lord Krishna all three days we stayed was decorated with Diamond Kavacha. The Chande vadya in udupi temple was mesmerizing.

All three of us feel blessed to be able to visit all the places especially taking my 88 year old father safely to all these places. It truly was a dream come true.

We are now back in USA, and work has started.
