Lord Sreenivasa


 

As a kid, I grew up listening my parents recite Shri Venkatesha Parijatha, Sreenivasa Kalyana during the Dasara days. Last time I visited India, I went to Vidya Peetha to get these books. However, they were not available. Yesterday, in our whataspp group message Mrs. Anita Kulkarni asked me about this. I said I had listened to it as a kid but had not got the books. She immediately sent me the links for the audio. It is unbelievable how the internet and the world has changed. I was able to listen Part 1. Hoping to listen each part every day until the final Vijaya Dashami day. Thanks Anita Avare.

Here are the links for the audio.

Yet another visitor requested the lyrics for Jaya Mangalam Nitya Shubha Mangalam On Lord Venkateshwara.
As always, I searched on Google and found this amazing video on youtube. The song is in Telugu. I can definitely write down the lyrics as I listen but not knowing the language, it would be hard.
So, anyone who knows the lyrics, please post it in English. It is just an amazing song on our Lord.

How blessed am I to have wonderful readers like Mrs. Shobha R who saw my request and immediately sent the lyrics for this amazing song in Kannada. Attached below are the lyrics for the song in Kannada. I will hopefully translate to English as well.

Thanks a million Shobha. May Lord Venkateshwara bless you and your family.

I visited Pandarapura maybe when I was 7-8 years old. I have faint memory of the place. Thanks to technology, I get to see Lord Panduranga everyday on Facebook. If you have not subscribed to the facebook page, please do so. Here are some images from the same. All credit to Lord Vittal Page.

Lord_Sreenivasa

Last month, my Husband and I visited India to attend his Nephew’s marriage. We left USA on March 9th, making sure we finished our Beloved Rayaru’s b-day celebration. We landed early morning on March 11th. My Husband had decided that he would take me to Tirupathi at any cost.

The marriage was on March 18th, 19th and 20th. On Thursday March 20th evening, we left to Tirupathi by the ITDC bus. We took the bus around 9.00 PM at Jaynagar 4th block. The bus took us to Majestic, and we had to change bus. The Luxury bus was jam packed. It reached Tirupathi at 3.00 AM on Friday morning. They have rooms reserved for each family, and we were given an hour to take shower and get ready. The cost was Rs1800/ for each one of us.

We were later taken to the Padmavathi Temple at 4.00 AM.  This is the only place we had to take a ticket for Rs.25/. There wasn’t any queue here, and we came back to the Hotel at 5.30 AM. We were taken to a dinning hall and given breakfast which included Idli, Dosa, Pongal, And Kesaribath.

We were taken to Tirumala using the TTD buses. There is lot of security. We were on top of the hills in Tirumala by 7.00 AM. The ITDC guide helps everyone put away their shoes, and also valuables. We were first taken to the Sree Varaha Swamy Temple. We were in the Queue for about 30 minutes, and once the darshan was over, we were asked to wait in Queue near the Rs.300/ door. There were many people waiting here for the door’s to open. The ITDC guide gives the ticket for everyone.The ITDC also collects all the Ladoos, and if you pay extra buys additional Ladoos as well.

Once the door opens the madness begins. The crowd for no reason goes crazy, and people were pushing, jumping on barriers. It is mind boggling, and I am scared of crowds and in general when people push. My Husband was trying to shield me as much as possible. Within 45 minutes of this maddening crowd, we were in front of Our Lord Venkateshwara. I couldn’t believe I was seeing the Lord. My Husband being very tall could see the Lord from a long Distance. I could see him only when I came in the front. And as I was trying to see him, the volunteers hold your arm and just push you out of sight.

Within seconds I was out of the temple, and even though I could see the Lord, was very very disappointed. I couldn’t imagine all the trouble we had taken, were over and we couldn’t even see him for a few seconds. It was Friday, and exam week in India. There wasn’t much crowd either. So, why were these volunteers pushing us around. I guess that’s how TTD temple is, right?

Anyway, I was lucky to see him at least for a few seconds during this visit. Not complaining there.

By 11.30 AM everyone had their Darshan, we were brought back down to Tirupathi, had lunch which again was arranged by ITDC. We left around 1.30 PM, and reached Bangalore at 6.30 PM.

An amazing trip you should take if you are time constrained. How do you all visit Tirupathi? Do you feel the same disappointment that you are not even allowed a few seconds to see the Lord even when there isn’t any crowd? Share your thoughts.

During my visit to India in October, I visited many temples. Attached below are some pictures of the same.

Uttaradi Mutt visit on 10/10/2013 evening in Basavanagudi. The mutta is undergoing major construction. It has a new Idol of Lord Narashima installed. You can also see the brindavana of Sree Raghotama Theertharu and Sree Jayatheertharu.

I asked all the Priests if I could take pictures and only when I received a YES, did I take pictures. I also visited Bhanashankari Temple, but was not allowed to take pictures. Same with Mulbagal, so just the outside temple is posted.

uttaradimutt

Next, we visited Sree Vyasarayara Mutta, Basavanagudi. This is where we performed the 80th birthday celebration of my Father.

On the same day, we visited NR Colony Sree Raghavendra Swamy temple. It was Thursday evening, and they were performing the evening Rathotsava Pooja.

We also visited 5th Block Sree Raghavendra Swamy Temple. This is the temple I visited everyday while I was staying in Bangalore.

On October 13th Vijaya Dashami day, was my parents wedding anniversary. We had given for Panchamrita Abhisheka for Lord Venkateshwara in LIC Colony temple. Below are some pictures of the same.

On October 22nd, I visited Sree Khamadhenu Kshetra. I have several pictures posted in an earlier post. I also visited a place called KhambhaSandra, where there is a temple of Lord Narashima. Lord Narashima in a Khamabha or Pole, that’s why the name KhambhaSandra.

Khambha-Narashima

On October 23rd, we visited Mulabhagal. Like I said, I was not allowed to take any pictures inside. So, just the outside temple.

mulbagal

On October 24th, we visited the temples near 4th T block. There are three temples here in the play ground. Goddess Chandrala Parameshwari, Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesha.

My Father performs Saligrama Pooje everyday. I miss taking Thirtha and Phala Mantrakshathe from him everyday. After receiving the Thirtha, I used to do Namaskara to him. How I wish I could be close to my Parents.
