Meera – Where have you been?

Meera – where are you? How are you? This is exactly what many of you have been asking. Makes me feel so special.

It has been very hectic work wise for the past two months since I returned from India end of March. I have been traveling almost every week, which is taking its toll as well. Just today morning, I returned back from California, will be traveling again to New Jersey for work Tuesday, and the following week to Philadelphia. I have taken a week of vacation after that to actually relax and gain back my energy.

It is too much stressful when you travel so much. At the end of the night, I have no energy left to write or even reply to comments. Hopefully, from second week of June, the travel reduces and I can update you all with many more posts.

I should also mention that during all my visits to work, I have been meeting with many of you who follow the blog as well. It is just so humbling to know that this blog and I myself have inspired you. Thanks for letting me know that as well. Worth all the time I spend on this blog.

Once again thanks for all the emails, and comments. Will come back soon in June and keep you all busy with many many posts.

Thanks  a million.

Akshaya Tritiya Mantralaya

Updated Post: Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ ತೃತಿಯಾ – May 1st -2nd 2014

In the USA Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is celebrated on May 1st 2014 and on May 2nd 2014 in India. Please check with your local calendar to find out about the same.

Akshaya Tritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is the most important day in the hindu calendar.  Akshaya means growth and tritiya is the third day of the month in Vaishaka Masa. They say that in order to perform any major function like marriage, gruhapravesha you don’t even have to check your horoscope for finding a good Muhurtham. Any ritual or religious function performed on this day leads to growth.

The Uttaradi matta panchanga also mentions it is very important to apply gandha ಗಂಧ to the Lord. So, if you have access to the same, please do that as well.

On this day, many ladies give thambula including blouse piece, and other items. Any thing you give or donate they say becomes akshaya. Meaning infinite or one that never diminishes.

So, if you have decided to do anything new this year, this is the right day to get started.
