Sridhara Sri gudda , Kengeri , Bangalore

Our team recently visited Sridhara Sri gudda near Kengeri which is about 12-13 kms from city center. In this post , we share our visit experience and what we explored here

On our search for tourist locations in Bengaluru , we got information about Sridhara Sri Gudda ( Gudda in Kannada means a hillock ) which is located in Kodipalya , Kengeri. This is a centre for Self Realization - which houses an ashram , meditation center , a temple with unique idols and parks. Hence we left to explore this spot on a sunny monsoon morning. 

Sridhara Srigudda - Entrance
We took kanakapura road - BSK 6th stage route to reach this spot. There are bus services to this location. This is on the way connecting BSK 6th stage and Vishnuvardhan road connecting to Rajarajeshwari nagar and Uttarahalli. It is open for visitors between 7 AM to 12 PM and at evening between 5 to 7.30 PM.

At the entrance we noticed an arch board "Vyasa Veda Peeta"  , on entering which there was ample space for parking. The area seemed to be spread around 4-5 acres with lush plantations and trees all around keeping the location cool with chirping sounds of birds and insects.

Sri Gurumatha Amma is the founder of this Ashram. She often travels around the world to meet devotees, deliver talks and give meditation and yoga retreats. Once a month, she connects with her devotees around the world over telephone at the Hunnime Nudi Satsang

Please give your 2min and read this:-

1 Let’s say it’s 7.25pm and you’re going home (alone of course) after an unusually hard day on the job.

2 You’re really tired, upset and frustrated.

3 Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up in to your jaw. You are only about five km from the hospital nearest your home.

4 Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far.

5 You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself.

6 HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE?
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only
about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness.

7 However, these victims can help themselves by coughing
repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest.

A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two
seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until
the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

8 Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing
movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a hospital.

9 Tell as many other people as possible about this. It could save their lives!!

Can u judge who is the better person out of these 3 ?

Mr A - He had frienship with bad politicians, consults astrologers, two wives, chain smoker, drinks eight to 10 times a day.

Mr B - He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps till noon, used opium in college & drinks whiskey every evening.

Mr C - He is a decorated war hero,a vegetarian, doesn't smoke , doesn't drink  and never cheated on his wife.

You would want Mr.C rite.



But..
Mr. A was Franklin Roosevelt!

Mr. B was Winston Churchill!!

Mr C Was ADOLF HITLER!!!

Strange but true..
Its risky to judge anyone by his habits !
Character is a complex phenomenon.

So every person in ur life is important ,don't judge them ,accept them.
=======================================
Few disciples went to the master and told the master that they are all going for a pilgrimage trip. The Master asked them the purpose of this trip and the disciples said it is for “ Inner Purification”. The master immediately took out a Karela ( Bitter gourd) and handed over this to them . The disciples asked the master what is that they are supposed to do with the Karela.  The master said carry this Karela with you , where ever you go and do Pooja , keep this Karela also in the pooja and do the pooja.  The disciples took the karela with them and where ever they went kept the Karela in the pooja and brought it back.  After returning back from the trip , they met the master and offered back the Karela to the master.  The master asked them to cook that karela and serve the same to him . They cooked the Karela and served the food the master .  Master tasted the food and the karela and said it is still bitter.  You took this to every temple and came back and it is still bitter. Disciples said it is the nature of the bitter gourd.
The Master smiled and the disciples understood the meaning.
The significance of this story to all of us is that basically if we have to change, our nature has to change . Simply going there , going here is not going to help. It is important that the bottle has to be cleaned from inside.  Outside everything can be adjusted or created. The inner nature has to change. The inner shift has to come and that is inner spiritualism and our Attitudes towards life, people , family, friends, community etc

An Indian Doctor can't find a job in a Hospital in US so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside 'GET TREATMENT FOR $20 - IF NOT CURED GET BACK $100


A American lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic...

Lawyer:  "I have lost my sense of taste"

Indian :  "Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in patient's mouth"

Lawyer:  "Ugh..this is kerosene"

Indian:  "Congrats, your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20"

The annoyed lawyer goes back after a few days to recover his money...

Lawyer:  "I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything"
Indian:  "Nurse,



 medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in his mouth"

Lawyer (annoyed):  "This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring my taste"

Indian : "Congrats. You got your memory back. Give me $20"

The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.

Lawyer:  "My eyesight has become very weak I can't see at all "

Indian :  "Well, I don't have any medicine for that, so take this $100"

Lawyer (staring at the note): "But this is $20, not $100"

Indian :  "Congrats, your eyesight is restored. Give me $20"

Are we earning to pay builders and interior designers, caterers and decorators?

Whom do we want to impress with our highly inflated house properties & fat weddings?

Do you remember for more than two days what you ate at someone's marriage?

Why are we working like dogs in our prime years of life?

How many generations do we want to feed?

Most of us have two kids. Many have a single kid.

How much is the "need" and how much do we actually "want"??
Think about it.

Would our next generation be incapable to earn, that we save so much for them!?!

Can not we spare one and a half days a week for friends, family and self??

Do you spend even 5% of your monthly income for your self enjoyment?
Usually...No.

Why can't we enjoy simultaneously while we earn?  

Spare time to enjoy before you have slipped discs and large prostates.

We don't own properties, we just have temporary name on documents.

How a Password Changed my Life ... A true story from the Reader’s Digest ...

I was having a great morning until I sat down in front of my office computer. “Your password has expired”, a server message flashed on my screen, with instructions for changing it. Coming up with a new code doesn’t seem like a big deal, unless you work at my company, where we have to change it monthly, using at least one uppercase character, one lower case character, one symbol and one number. Oh and the password can’t be fewer than eight characters. And I can’t use any of the same passwords I’ve used in the past three months.

Suddenly I was furious. What didn’t make it any better was that I was deeply depressed after my recent divorce. Disbelief over what she had done to me was what I thought all day.

That didn’t mean anything to the empty field with the pulsating cursor, waiting for me to type a password that I have to re-enter many times – for the next 30 days. I remembered a tip I’d heard from my former boss. He’d said, “I’m going to use a password that is going to change my life”. I couldn’t focus on getting things done in my current mood. There was clear indication that I needed to regain control over my life, but I couldn’t heed them. My password became the indicator. My password reminded me that I shouldn’t let myself be a victim of my recent breakup and that I was strong enough to do something about it.

I made my password – F0rgive@her. I had to type this password several times every day, each time my computer would lock. Each time I came back from lunch I wrote forgive her. The simple action changed the way I looked at my ex-wife. That constant reminder of reconciliation led me to accept the way things happened and helped me deal with my depression. As one month wore on, I felt a slow healing began to take place. By the time the server prompted me to change my password following month, I felt free.

The next time I had to change my password I thought about the next thing that I had to get done. My password became Quit@smoking4ever .
It motivated me to follow my goal and I was able to quit smoking.

One month later, my password became Save4trip@europe, and in three months I was able to visit Europe.

Seeing how reminders helped me materialize my goals kept me motivated and excited. While its sometimes difficult to come up with your next goal, keeping at it brings great results.

After a few months my password was
lifeis#beauTful  !!!

Life is going to change again.

A Psychologist walked
around a room while
teaching Stress Management to an
audience.

As she raised a
glass of water, everyone expected they'd be asked
the
"Half empty or Half full" question.

Instead, with a
smile on her face, she
inquired:
"How heavy is this glass of water?"
Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied,
"The absolute weight doesn't matter.
It depends on how long I hold it.

If I hold it for a
minute,
it's not a problem.

If I hold it for an hour,
I'll have an ache in my arm.

If I hold it for a day,
my arm will feel numb and paralyzed.

In each case,
the weight of the glass
doesn't change,

But

The longer I hold it,
the heavier it becomes.

She continued,
"The Stresses and Worries in Life , are like that Glass of Water...

Think about them for
a while and nothing
happens.

Think about them
a bit longer and they begin to hurt.

And

If you think
about them all day long,
you will feel paralysed –
incapable of doing
anything."

Remember to put the Glass Down

Sri Someshwara temple , Marathahalli - Bangalore ancient temples

In our team's search of Bangalore ancient temples , they visited few old temples in Marathahalli which is about 16-18 kms from city center. In this article , we share our visit experience of Sri Someshwara Swamy temple at Marathahalli.


Big shiva Statue at the temple 


This temple is believed to be constructed during the period of cholas at around 11th century.  Temple houses a small gopuram , on entering which it leads to the main sanctum where Lord Shiva is worshipped in the form of Shiv Linga accompanied by Ganesha , Parvathi idols. The temple seemed to be renovated , however the old stone pillars tells us a story. Special poojas are conducted here during village processions and Shiva rathri.  It is said this temple which once used to be recognized as the center of Marathahalli is now away on account of new developments this part of city has seen in recent years.

Temple's gopuram


There has been recently a cave temple made here where different avatars of Lord Vishnu , Shiva and upto 200 idols are housed . There is also a Shiva statue similar to the one in Murugeshpalya which may be around 18 to 20 feet to attract visitors. There is a minimal entry fee of Rs.10 to enter this cave structure.

Temple's sanctum view


Temple is less crowded except during village functions and is open between 7 AM to 11 AM and from 5 PM to 7.30 PM at evening. There is also a Hanuman temple nearby where a 18 feet hanuman idol is erected posing towards North which is considered as auspicious.  So if you happen to visit Marathahalli , do visit these Bengaluru's ancient spots and share your visit experience.

Hanuman temple and big Idol

Chokkanatha Swamy Temple , Domlur - Bangalore ancient temples

In this article we share our visit experience of one of ancient temples of Bangalore , the Chokkanatha Swamy Temple at Domlur which is around 10-12 kms from Bangalore center.


Sri Chokkanatha Swamy temple and Dwaja Stambha View
 It was a bright sunny morning when our team reached here , they took the old airport road route. Although very near to the main road , the cross roads were narrow and our team managed to get their vehicle parked in front of the temple. We recommend as this temple is now submerged by residential houses all around and roads are little narrow , better to park 4 wheelers at a distant place to avoid traffic jams.

The entrance pillars carvings gave a clear glimpse that its an ancient temple . Surrounding the main shrine were Idols of Ganapathi , Hanuman and Navagraha. There were few remains of temple's old stone carvings.

Old stone carvings at the entrance 


Temple History as indicated here

According to inscriptions carved on the walls of this temple in Dravidian (Tamil) script , it is noted that the name of the deity as Chokkaperumal, along with the consorts Sridevi and Bhoo devi of Saligrama Shila. The location of the temple is written as Tommalur pertaining to Desimanikka Pattanam of Iipakka nadu (present Yelahanka) in Raja Raja Cholavalandu. The earliest available inscriptions pertain to 1200 AD of Raja chola period. Accordingly, Irvi Tripuranthaka Chettiar and his wife parvathi chetticti for the betterment of shoulder and sword of Tribhuvana Mallar Vempi Devar probably chieften of Dommalur , donated wet and dry lands at Jalapalli village and the lake of Vinnimangalam.They have also granted garden land to Iron piran Allala Nambiyar who has land rights of this temple as donation and that his descendants for doing archanas in the temple and the right to carry out prathishts ceremony and some more lands for the maintenance of the temple. In order to preserve this ancient shrine, Sri M.krishna reddy and devotees of Dommalur under took renovation during 1975 - 83 preserving ancient structures restored in present form.

Carvings , Inscriptions on Pillars


Inscriptions pertaining to Hoysala king Ramanandadeva in 1300 AD indicates sanctioning money for festivals. Thus construction of the temple might be during or prior to that period. According to Karnataka gazetteer, the original structure seems to be garbhagriha and the Ardha mantapa belongs to chola period. The front navaranga is built in typical Vijayanagar style. The cellar is found in the arda mantapa of the temple for storing valuables which is now covered. The vidyaganapathi temple was constructed in 1985.

Temple shrine Entrance


Sthala Purana / Significance of the Spot as indicated here 

Sri AkhilandaKoti Bramhanda Nayaka ,SriVaikuntavaasi , Sri Bhoo sametha , Sri paravasudeva bhagavan avyahatha divya agnyaih saptha rishi mandala Prasanna Uttara malika states that a great sage did intense penance at this place to get the blessings of Lord vishnu for the benefits of locals here. Lord Vishnu was pleased and informed to install his Divya vigraham so that the local may regularly worship. It was also mentioned that all should not forget the "Anthima Smruthi" at the time of death to acheive "Paramapada Mooksham". Accordingly the moola vigraham was installed at a high place so that it can receive the radiance of cosmic energy and radiate in all eight directions at all times. The temple is built in such a way at a high place facing east . the sun rays fall on the on the main deity at sunrise , specially one may see it during the end of February to first week of March and also during Sep to Oct of every year during Uttarayana and Dakshinayana respectively . People who worship the lord and carryout pradakshinam are blessed with the grace to fulfill their wishes. This is the only temple in Bangalore possessing pranic energy.

Inscriptions all over the temple


On entering the main shrine , we observed it followed a typical Cholas construction model with stone pillars and carvings. There was total silence inside the temple when the poojas are performed. The main Idol of Chokkanatha Swamy accompanied by Bhoo devi and Sridevi were pleasing to the eyes. One must really appreciate the priest here , who was working here single handed , was very professional - promptly used to perform the Archane pooja , attend to devotees and arrange prasadams.

Painting showing 15Aug1947 temple status


We observed an unique way of Pradakshinam here which resembles the sthala purana above - where there were specific squares painted at different points of the temple where it was instructed to pray for a minute , then proceed to the next square and repeat the same procedure till all squares are covered . So if you happen to visit on a weekend you may notice many devotees waiting in queue to perform this.

Devotees praying at square blocks 


Temple also houses its own well which may be constructed in late 90s and a small Brindavan garden.

Devotees praying at square blocks near the well and Brindavan


Temple is open between 6 AM to 11 AM in morning and between 5.45 PM to 8.30 PM at evening. Overall a very nice and unique spot to visit with friends and family. Do visit this place and share your experience.

Kodanad Elephant Kraal - Kerala weekend destination from Bengaluru

In one of our picnic visits from Bengaluru to Kerala, we got a chance to pass via Kodanad - a rural district which is about 40 to 50 kms from east of Kochi.   This place is known for its training of elephants for many years and attracts tourists .

Elephant Kraal where they are trained



Kodanad was very famous for the Elephant capturing and training. Elephant capturing started in Malayattor reserved forests in 1895 and a kraal was erected during that time , its a place where the newly captured elephants are kept till they are properly trained for employment in forestry works. The present 6 room kraal has been constructed in 1965 at the place where the old kraal existed . Captured elephants are kept in this kraal till they are properly trained and disciplined for forestry and other works.  Few animals and birds - spotted deers , chimps , peacocks were adopted at this spot which were later moved to a different region.










If you happen to visit Kerala for a picnic , do not miss this spot - A very nice spot to check out how forest elephants are trained. Do visit this spot and share your experiences.

The Greatest Mortal Fear!

United State Air Force has a high security, super secret base in Nevada, known simply as "Area 51?"

One afternoon, a Cessna landed at this "secret" base. The aircraft was immediately impounded & the pilot was interrogated.

The pilot's story was that - he took off from Vegas, got lost & spotted the Base just as he was about to run out of fuel.

The Air Force started a full FBI background check on the pilot & held him overnight during the investigation.

By the next day, they were finally convinced that the pilot really was lost & wasn't a spy.

They re fueled his airplane, threatened him that if he lands again he would spend the rest of his life in prison, and let him go.

The next day, to the total disbelief of the Air Force personnel, the same Cessna landed there again.

Once again, the MP's surrounded the plane ... only this time there were two people in the plane.

The same pilot jumped out & said:

"Do anything you want - to me, but my wife is in the plane & you have to tell her ... where I was last night!"

Letter written by a wife after her husband's death in an accident
 

"Few things I learnt after my husband's death:-

We always believe we will live forever. Bad things always happen to others.

Only when things hit us bang on your head you realise... Life is so unpredictable....

My husband was an IT guy, All technical. And I am a chartered accountant.
Awesome combination you may think.

Techie guy so everything is on his laptop. His to do list. His e-bill and his bank statements in his email. He even maintained a folder which said IMPWDS wherein he stored all login id and passwords for all his online accounts. And even his laptop had a password. Techie guy so all the passwords were alpha-numeric with a special character not an easy one to crack. Office policy said passwords needed to be changed every 30 days. So every time I accessed his laptop I would realize it's a new password again. I would simply opt for asking him 'What's the latest password instead of taking the strain to memorize it.

You may think me being a Chartered Accountant would means everything is documented and filed properly. Alas many of my chartered accountant friends would agree that the precision we follow with our office documents and papers do not flow in to day to day home life. At office you have be epitome of Reliability / Competent / Diligent etc but. At home front there is always a tomorrow.

One fine morning my hubby expired in a bike accident on his way home from office.. He was just 33. His laptop with all his data crashed. Everything on his hard disk wiped off. No folder of IMPWDS to refer back to. His mobile with all the numbers on it was smashed. But that was just the beginning. I realised I had lot to learn.

9 years married to one of the best human beings with no kids just the two of us to fall back on but now I stood all alone and lost.

Being chartered accountant helped in more ways than one but it was not enough. I needed help. His saving bank accounts, his salary bank accounts had no nominee. On his insurance his mom was the nominee and it was almost 2 years back she had expired. But this was just a start. I didn't know the password to his email account where all his e-bill came. I didn't know which expenses he paid by standing instructions.

His office front too was not easy. His department had changed recently. I didn't know his reporting boss name to start with when had he last claimed his shift allowance, his mobile reimbursement.

The house we bought with all the excitement on a loan thought with our joint salary we could afford the EMI.  when the home loans guys suggested insurance on the loan, we decided the instead of paying the premium the difference in the EMI on account of the insurance could be used pay towards prepayment of the loan and get the tenure down. We never thought what we would do if we have to live on a single salary. So now there was huge EMI to look into .

I realised I was in for a long haul.

Road accident case. So everywhere I needed a Death certificate, FIR report, Post Mortem report. For everything there were forms running into pages indemnity bonds, notary, surety to stand up for you. No objections certificates from your co-heirs.

I learnt other than your house, your land, Your car, your bike are also your property. So what if you are the joint owner of the flat you don't become the owner just because your hubby is no more. So what if your hubby expired in the bike accident and you are the nominee but if the bike is in a repairable condition .you have to get the bike transferred in your name to claim the insurance. And that was again not easy. The bike or car cannot be transferred in your name without going through a set of legal documents. Getting a Succession Certificate is another battle all together.

Then came the time you realise now you have to start changing all the bills, assets in your name. Your gas connection, electricity meter, your own house, your car, your investments and all sundries. And then change all the nominations where your own investments are concerned. And again a start of a new set of paperwork.

To say I was shaken my whole life had just turned upside down was an understatement. You realise you don't have time to morn and grieve for the person with whom you spend the best years of your life. Because you are busy sorting all the paper work.

I realised then how much I took life for granted. I thought being a chartered accountant I am undergoing so many difficulties, what would have happened to someone who was house maker who wouldn't understand this legal hotchpotch.

A sweet friend then told me dear this was not an end, you have no kids, your assets will be for all who stand to claim. After my hubby's sudden death. I realised it was time I took life more seriously. I now needed to make a Will. I would have laughed if a few months back if he had asked me to make one. But now life had taken a twist.

Lessons learnt this hard way were meant to be shared. After all why should the people whom we love the most suffer after we are no more. Sorting some paperwork before we go will at least ease some of their grief.

1. Check all your nominations...
It's a usual practice to put a name (i.e in the first place if you have mentioned it) and royally forget about it. Most of us have named our parent as a nominee for investments, bank accounts opened before marriage. We have not changed the same even years after they are no longer there with us. Even your salary account usually has no nomination.. Kindly check all your Nominations.
- Bank Accounts
- Fixed Deposits, NSC
- Bank Lockers
- Demat Accounts
- Insurance (Life, Bike or Car or Property)
- Investments
- PF Pension Forms

2. Passwords..
We have passwords for practically everything. Email accounts, Bank accounts, even for the laptop you use. What happens when your next in kin cannot access any of these simply because they do not know your password... Put it down on a paper.

3. Investments.
Every year for tax purpose we do investments. Do we maintain a excel sheet about it. If so is it on the same laptop of which the password you had not shared. Where are those physical investments hard copy.

4. Will.
Make a Will. I know you will smile even I would had I not gone through all what I did. It would have made my life lot easier a lot less paperwork. I wouldn't had to provide an indemnity bond, get it notarised, ask surety to stand up, no objections certificates from others...

5. Liabilities.
When you take a loan say for your house or car. Check out on all the what if, what if I am not there tomorrow, what if I loose my job. Will the EMI still be within my range. If not get an insurance on the loan. The people left behind will not have to worry on something as basic as their own house.

My battles have just begun... But let us at least try and make few changes so that our loved ones would not suffer after we go. We do not know what will happen in the future. But as the Scout motto goes: Be prepared "

NEVER TAKE LIFE FOR GRANTED DO THINGS APPROPRIATE FOR THE ONES WHO DEPEND ON YOU WITH LOVE.

NOTE: THIS IS A REAL INCIDENT AND NOT JUST A FORWARD

This is one of the best posts I've read about woman... pl read it completely... it's worth it...

WOMAN. . . . . . . . .                                                      
When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day.......

An angel came by and asked." Why spend so much time on her ?".
                                 
The lord answered. " Have you seen all the  specifications I have to meet to shape her?".....

she must function on all kinds of situations....,

she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time,

give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart ,

she must do all this with only two hands,.."

She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day".... ...                                                                                    
THE ANGEL was impressed. .." Just two hands.....impossible !" ..

And this is the standard model ? !."

The Angel came closer and touched the woman"......  ..

 " But you have made her so soft, Lord".....

" She is soft", said the Lord,

" But I have made her strong. You can't imagine what she can endure and overcome "...

"Can she think?" The Angel asked...

The Lord answered. " Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate" ...

The Angel touched her cheeks.....


" Lord, it seems this creation is leaking !  You have put too many burdens on her. " ...

 "She is not leaking...it is a tear" The Lord corrected the Angel...

" What's it for?" Asked the Angel..... .

The Lord said. " Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride."...

THIS made a big impression on the Angel,

" Lord, you are genius. You thought of everything.

A  woman is indeed marvellous !".... ...

Lord said." Indeed she is.

She has strength that amazes a man.

She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.

She holds happiness, love and opinions.

She smiles when she feels like screaming.

She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.

She fights for what she believes in.

Her love is unconditional.

Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies

but she finds strength to get on with life." ..

The Angel asked : So she is a perfect ?

The lord replied : No. She has just one drawback

" She often forgets what she is worth".

Send it to all the women u respect ....

This happened in Khandala Ghat near Lonavala during the last
monsoon.
A guy was driving from Bombay to Pune and decided not to take
the new expressway as he wanted to see the scenery along the
old road.
when he reached the mountains his car broke down - he was
stranded miles from nowhere.
Having no choice he started walking on the side of the road,
hoping to get a lift to the nearest town. It was dark and rainy.
And pretty soon he got wet and Shivering. The night rolled on
and no car passed by.
Suddenly he saw a car coming towards him. It slowed and then
stopd next to him - without thinking the guy opened the door
and jumped in. Seated in the back, he leaned forward to thank
the person who had saved him.
He realized there was nobody behind the wheel !!!
Even though there was no one in the front seat and no sound of
any engine, the car startd moving slowly. The guy lookd at the
road ahead and saw a curve coming. Scared almost to death he
startd to pray, begging the Lord for his life.
He hadn't come out of shock, when just before he hit the curve,
a hand appeard through the window and moves the wheel!
The car made the curve safely and continued on the road to the
next bend. The guy, now paralyzed in terror, watched how the
hand appeared every time before a curve and moved the
steering wheel just enough to get the car around each bend.
Finally, the guy saw lights ahead. Gathering his courage he
wrenched open the door of the silent, slowly moving car,
scrambled out and ran as hard as he cud towards the lights.
It was a small town. He stumbled into a restuarant, and askd for
a drink, and broke down. Then he startd talking about the
horrible experience he'd just been through.
There was dead silence in the restaurant when he stopped
talking ..... . . . .
.
.
.

......and that's when Santa and Banta Singh walked into the restaurant. Santa
pointed and said
'Look Banta - that's the idiot who got into our car when we were
pushing it.'

Two 90 year old men, Mike and Joe, have been friends all of their lives.

When it's clear that Joe is dying, Mike visits him every day. One day Mike says, "Joe, we both loved cricket all our lives, and we played cricket on Saturdays together for so many years. Please do me one favour, when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's bat and ball there."

Joe looks up at Mike from his death bed," Mike, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favour for you.

Shortly after that, Joe passes on.

At midnight a couple of nights later, Mike is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, "Mike--Mike."

"Who is it? asks Mike sitting up suddenly. "Who is it?"

"Mike--it's me, Joe."

"You're not Joe. Joe just died."

"I'm telling you, it's me, Joe," insists the voice."

"Joe! Where are you?"

"In heaven", replies Joe. "I have some really good news and a little bad news."

"Tell me the good news first," says Mike.

"The good news," Joe says," is that there's bat and ball in heaven. Better yet, all of our old friends who died before us are here, too. Better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always spring time and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play cricket all we want, and we never get tired."

That's fantastic," says Mike. "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So what's the bad news?

"You're in the team for this Saturday's match !!!"

Friends rock! heaven or hell !!

Vasantha Vallabharaaya temple , Vasanathapura , Bangalore

Our team recently visited one of the ancient temples of Bangalore - Vasantha Vallabharaaya temple at Vasanthapura around 16 kms from Bangalore center. In this article , we share our visit experience

History of this temple : ( References)

This temple is dedicated to Vallabha i.e, Lord Vishnu , dates back to cholas period and is believed to be established by Sage Mandavya and is expected to be at-least 1500 years old. 

Wiki - According to sthalapurana, Bangalore in the ancient times was called Kalyanpuri and the small town Vasantapura, where, the Vasantha Vallabharaya shrine "devoted to Vishnu" is located, was a site in the midst of a jungle where holy sages meditated. With the passage of time, the greenery was gradually replaced by tilled land. It is said many tirthas (springs) lay on the dirt track that went to the temple site. Those tirthas were considered holy as Lord Vallabharaya "another incarnation of Vishnu" bathed in them after his marriage to Goddess Lakshmi at Narayana Vana, close to Tirupathi. Today, the road to the temple is paved and only two springs called the Devatirtha and Vasantatirtha remain. Sadly, two of those tirthas were filled with soil for real estate work. It is also apparent that the temple area has suffered owing to the steady growth in the development works.


Vasantha Vallabharaaya temple - Sanctum Entrance 

Vasantha Vallabharaaya temple - Sanctum Gopuram

It was a cloudy June evening when we visited this site. As temple was at a hillock - there was consistent breeze all around. This temple is one among the temple complex here having Shiva Shankara , Hanuman , Sai Baba mandir. The new ISCKON temple is about a few min journey from this temple.  It attracts devotees all around the city who visit and perform special poojas like Srinivasa Kalyana , Vaikunta Ekadashi etc. 


The outer rocks and stairs reminds us about the age of the temple . At entrance , the Jaya Vijaya Idols welcome us amidst the stone pillars. There are 3 doors leading to the main sanctum. One may feel the resonance on reaching the inner sanctum . The idol of Vallabharaaya adorned with ornaments accompanied by Rukmini & lakshmi idols on the sides was very pleasant to watch which may be around 5-6 feet which reminds us of the Chikka Tirupathi temple.

After visiting this temple , we also visited the Shiva temple known as Bhavani Shankara here , the Hanuman temple and the Graama devathe Maramma temples within the complex.  There is also a Sai Baba mandir nearby which attracts many devotees , it also houses a meditation hall. There is also a small Kalyani next to Sai baba temple which is not well maintained.


Present state of Kalyani

Overall a very nice place to visit to friends and family on a weekend. Temple is open between morning 6.30 to 11.30 AM and between 5.30 to 8.00 PM. Do visit this spot and share your experience.
