    Meera, what is No.3 Vegan food?

    1. meeraghu Says:

      Vegan is more strict than vegetarian. No milk, yougurt, ghee, butter, chesse or honey. No any animal products at all. Everything is plant based.

      1. bhavana Says:

        Is it Chaaturmaasya menu?

  2. bhavana Says:

    Thanks Meera. This is really interesting.

    1. meeraghu Says:

      I have many friends and colleagues who are vegans here in the US. Tough it is, since all food items have milk, yogurt, and cheese.

      1. bhavana Says:

        Have you tried a Vegan Day ? I mean, like other fasting days.

      2. meeraghu Says:

        Not really.The only tough part is COffee. I have milk with my Coffee and I drink it just once in the morning. I can skip because I am not addicted, however not tried.

    What naviedhya should we keep for ekadashi and dwadashi

    1. meeraghu Says:

      No naivedya on Ekadashi. On dwadashi, mostly fruits unless you are preparing all food items in extreme madi.

      1. Madhusudan Says:

        Naivedya only to LORD Narayana (mostly dry fruits and fruits). Lakshmi and down no Naivedya. On Dwadashi day the Naivedya kept to Lord on Ekadashi should be kept to Ladshmi, Vayu etc.,

    Hello Meera,

    I checked the Raghavendra matrimony site and it is not working. Do you have idea on that or do you know any similar site for people in India.

    Namaskara Meera,
    In Northern part of Karnataka we put “Chaitra Gouri” during this time and there is a song which explains the significance of this Gouri. I have been doing this for may years and wanted to share the significance and song with others. How should I send you the song? scan or use Baraha? We make kadle bele kosambari and panaka on the day and invite women for “arisina kumkukma”, Here I invite the whole family.

  18. M Siva Sankari Says:

    Dear Mam
    Guruve Saranam!
    I am Siva Sankari, and I have a doubt about what kind of prasadam can be offered to our beloved Guru Rayaru daily as naivaidyam at home daily (3 times a day), and what prasadam can be offered to our Rayaru during Ekadasi and dwadasi days. I really like to know what type of food Guru Rayaru likes most. Please tell me so that layman like me can come to know about offering prasadams to our Rayaru through your blog.

    1. meeraghu Says:

      Unless you are preparing in extreme madi, just offer fruits and coconut to Guru Rayaru. No offering on Ekadashi since Rayaru is a yati. Our Beloved Rayaru liked Appi Payasa and Kadale Bele Chatni. Sree Appanacharyaru used to prepare this for our beloved Rayaru. Hope this helps.

      1. M Siva Sankari Says:

        Thank u Mam, we are a saiva pure vegetarian only, but not aware of madi; madi only bothers me more to worship Rayaru, whether i do commit mistakes, even i am more feared also about madi. So only i like to know in detail more about offering of food to Rayaru. I pray Rayaru up to my knowledge, since i am Rayaru devotee form my childhood. Thank u Mam once again for ur extreme service and care.
        Guruve Saranam

      2. meeraghu Says:

        Rayaru has blessed one and all. You haven’t done any mistake, Rayaru has no caste color or creed. Just being his devotee you are blessed.
