INFORMATION ON SRI PANAKAALA NRISIMHASWAMY OF MANGALGIRI,GUNTUR DT.

Mangalgiri in Guntur district is about 20 kilometers from Vijayawada through Kanaka Durgamma Varadhi. It is popularly known as Sri Paanakaala Nrisimha Swamy Kshetram. There are two temples in the village. The main temple is on the hill. Paanakam is nothing but the sweet Jagery water. Four decades ago we used to frequently visit the temple on the hill when we observed the deity taking 50% of the water offered leaving the balance to the devotees as his blessings. Interesting it was we used to keep a watch as to how the Lord leaves 50% only and how does he assess. We noticed persons taking a pot full returning with half pot and glass full with half glass. During this trip we could not climb up due to paucity of the time.

There is another temple of the same Lord at the foot hill where the Lord does not drink the sweet water directly. Certainly it is an ancient temple and of thousands of years. The origin is uncertain, however, the temple authorities preserved records for the past 1500 years as seen from the records.

During 8th Century Jagadguru HH Sankaraacharya visited the temple and later in the year 1220 AD Chaitanya Prabhu too visited. In the 14th Century the then Emporer Sri Krishna Devaraya constructed the Mantap and other halls. In 1594 AD Sultan Khutubali of Golconda Fort visited the temple and offered lands to the Lord. During 1807-1809 Raja Vasireddy Venkatadri Naidu constructed the Main Gopuram and other constructions too.

On 20th November 1820 Raja Sir Poji visited the temple and offered the Dakshinavrit Conch- a unique conch used during worshipping of Hindu Lords.

Thus from the History it is seen that Christians, Muslims and Hindus worshipped the Deity and took the blessings of the Lord.

The Most interesting is the Gali Gopuram – the entrance door is under 153 ft long multistoried construction which is unique in the country with 49ft width of the construction base. The main door is of 40 ft of so in the length and such a heavy door moves very easily for a single hand of a man. During our visit we have witnessed one person closing/moving the door with a single hand. Though it is not rare but the wonders of the constructions are worth visiting.

Wishing you early opportunity of visiting the temple to obtain the blessings of the Lord PAANAKAALA NRISIMHASWAMY personally. Yours affly HARA HARA MAHADEVA DR P V SESHA SAI

Dear Friends

Reg: PUSHKARAMS TO THE HOLY RIVER KRISHNA

Pushkarams, which occur once in 12 years, is now starting for the Holy River Krishna from 27th of this month. It is also called as Kumbhmela. Most of you might have remembered that we have done excellently last year for the Pushkar of River Godavari with the help of the local persons at Narsapuram in West Godavari District. It was a two day long activity which included performing of rituals and offering of oblations to the departed souls. Besides this one day full time yagna was also performed for the betterment of the society and all the participants.

This year pushkar is taking place at Vijayawada – my native place. During last time pushkar which took place in 1992 grand arrangements were made where shelter was created for many pilgrims on the banks of River Krishna; annadaana; free distribution of medicines and literature concerning the Pushkar; and distribution of clothes to the deserving poor.

Due to a recent accident I am finding it difficult to move out freely for the last ten days and as such much could not be done. Any way since THIS HAPPEN TO BE A RARE OCCASION WHICH COMES ONLY ONCE IN 12 YEARS, we have chalked out the program as below.

Assembly of all near and dear at Vijayawada by Evening of 4th September – Saturday. For easiness one may call to my cell No 94404 22613 or call on my associate Shri Narayana Rao on land line 0866 5562072 or cell No 9885332072 for assistance. He is making arrangements for comfortable stay at Vijayawada where from the Holy River Krishna is just 1 km. We will be taking bath in Holy river and perform all rituals on 5th and complete the same by 1.00 p.m. and there afterwards leave by a bus to Machilipatnam while taking darshan of SRIKAKULA ANDHRA MAHAVISHNU AT SRIKAKULAM ON THE BANKS OF RIVER KRISHNA AND ALSO VISITING SIDDHENDRA KUCHIPUDI KALASHETRAM. We are taking rest at Machilipatnam that night and in the morning going for SEA BATH and taking darshan of Lord PANDURANGA VITTAL IN CHILAKALAPUDI. By 1.00 p.m. we will be leaving Machilipatnam and reaching Vijayawada to catch Intercity Express on 6th which will enable us to reach Hyderabad by night.

This is the program in brief. I request all interested persons to inform us in advance so that necessary arrangements can be made by us. We are not sure, but we are trying for taking special permission to take darshan of Goddess Kanakadurga at Vijayawada. But surely there will be enough rush and by all means it may not be possible for an easy darshan.

Persons who are interested to offer oblations in absentia too can inform us the names and other particulars so that we will arrange to do our best through the priests who are being engaged specially for the purpose.

We are also planning to perform a YAGNA AT MACHILIPATNAM but again this depends on the time and other matters. Please inform me anything I can do for you all in this regard.

My dear Friends

Day before yesterday i.e. on 14th we visited the Holy Kolkata Kali shrine at Kolkata. Perhaps it was in 1980 when we made our first visit to this place.

Goddess Mahakaali is the Main worshiping Goddess for the people of Kolkata and West Bengal. HH Ramakrishna Paramahamsa had the divine blessings of the Goddess and it is believed that he had the Holy Darshan of her too on the other bank of River Ganga from Belur Mutt.

Mahakaali is one of the Dasa Mahavidyaas as per Hindu Religion. There are two Mahakali temples in India – one of the temples is in Avanthi of ancient India presently known as Ujjain. Ujjain Mahakali as per historical evidences turned a shepherd into a highly intellectual poet – the famous KALIDAS. Kali is the ruling Goddess of Kal – i.e. TIME LORD. Who ever find his time as bad, it is suggested that he worship Goddess Kali for all round betterment. The Mahakali temple of Kolkata is one of the most worshiped Goddess of these parts of India. We have no evidences to speak about this temple as one of the eighteen-sakti peethaas. But surely this is a very prominent temple. We have performed yagna at this temple – a full-length yagna praying for the blessings of Goddess. We could able to perform annadaana and other poojaas in the names of those who have been continuously in touch with us. The Holy prasadam is being mailed through postal /courier.

This is one side of the story – but I can not dare say that I had very peaceful darshan of Goddess. The entire temple under the grip of a group of people and it is seen that they are dominating the functioning of the temple. I do not know about the experiences of others but for me, I can not dare visiting the temple once again in my life time for fear of harsh, abusive, irritate treatment of the pandas of the temple. They have not given me any opportunity to enjoy the darshan of Holy Goddess for the reason they are after me the minute I got down from the Taxi till I came back. Even beggars in the temple demand for money and somehow it is not a wanted atmosphere in Hindu temples. I am a very small person to comment on this but apparently the Government helplessness to control the situation is clearly visible. The group just manipulates to get money through some source or the other and it is bitter experience for people like me those who visited the temple. Even the neighboring shopkeepers are expected for better interference of the Government for up keeping the atmosphere and they expect better days to come to the temple.

I can not dare suggesting you to visit this temple at this stage. Even if you are visiting the shrine do not listen to any one for whatever reason it is, but straight go to the temple and take darshan and come out. It is also most sad to see the animal sacrifices in the temple. The blood of the animals is seen in the main temple compound and slaughter is a common matter here. In a civilized society of ours, this type of sacrifices naturally frightens us. Rest is your choice in this regard.

My dear friends 1st January 2004
WISH YOU A VERY HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS, HEALTHY AND WEALTHY 2004
It is my pleasure to wish you and yours a very very happy and prosperous NEW YEAR 2004. May this New Year brings all cheerfulness and happiness into your life and may you be blessed with all that you richly deserve.

You are aware that we have gone on a tour to Kolhapur in Maharashtra and surrounding places. Kolhapur is the place of Goddess Mahalakshmi – a divine Goddess who grants all health and wealth and it is one of the eighteen-sakti peethas in India. According to the ancient texts, Kolhapur is a holy place – a grain more sacred than the most sacred place –Kasi in Uttarpradesh. Kasi is the historically most ancient and sacred place of the Country. Kolhapur is more sacred than Kasi as per Puranaas for the reason Goddess Mahalakshmi is staying there to bless her devotees. It is on the banks of Panchaganga-five sacred rivers of Maharashtra viz. Kumbhi, Kassari, Tulasi, Bhagavathi and Saraswathi. Perhaps it is the only place, which was found to have been honoring the sacred rivers. I did not notice any wastes flowing into the river from the towns on its bank. We are fortunate; we could perform abhishek to Goddess – the main deity with milk and other sacred items. It is one of the oldest and ancient temples as appeared from its appearance. It is essential that one should take the blessings of Goddess atleast once in a lifetime.

We went to Pandaripuram near Sholapur where Lord Panduranga gave his divine appearance to many and protected the land and kingdom. It is nearly 180 kilometers from Kolhapur and bus frequency is quite comfortable. One should be prepared to spend atleast half a day to have the darshan of the Holy Lord. We touched the Holy feet of the Lord and worshipped him.

The next day we visited another important place where the Chinmaya Trust constructed 100 feet Lord Ganesha Idol on a hillock. 50 Kilometers away from it is the famous place of Lord Dattatreya where Guru Dattatreya performed his Chaturmaasa Deekasha under Sacred Oudumbar tree. It is on the banks of River Krishna. Nearly 40 kms away from it is another sacred place of Guru Dattatreya by the name of Nrisimhawadi. Lord Dattatreya attained sidhi at this place and it is the place of sangam where river Krishna and Panchaganga join.
Around 40 kms away from it, is another important place by the name of Ramalinga Kshetra where Lord Rama entered into a cave and worshipped Lord Shiva. It is really a nice place and one has to experience the unusual water ponds. We have offered Jaggery to cows in the Goshala at the place.

In another direction to Kolhapur, nearly 20 kms from it, is Jyothiba. It is a hill station and we are not capable of describing the Holiness on this little paper. As usual we prayed for the welfare of all of us and for the peace and prosperity of the society in general and all of us in particular. We requested the Lords to grant all of us divine thoughts to do useful things to the society and to remain in peace, calmness and remain progressive from time to time. Error is human – we requested the Holy Lords to forgive all of us for any act, which we are not supposed to do and by virtue of any act we have caused discomfort to fellow human beings. We also bowed down and prayed them to grant us good vision where we are capable of noticing GOODNESS and GOD.

With this trip we have covered nearly 90% of India while many places are visited more than once. It is our desire to complete total tour of India by 2004.

The Panchanga work is in progress and the book – THE REFORMS I EXPECT IN INDIA is expected to be released very shortly.

Please let me know any service I can do for your well being. HARA HARA MAHADEVA ------------DR P V SESHA SAI

My dear friends
In continuation to my letter informing you about my visit to the Holy Himalaysan Shrine of Lord Jageswar and Patal Bhuvaneswar at an altitude of nearly 7000 ft very close to China Border near Pitorgarh, I desire to share my experiences with you with regard to two unique temples we have visited in Himalayan ranges. The first one is the Holy temple of NEEM KAROLI BABA. HH Neem Karoli Baba is said to be a siddha purush and in TAPAS for long time. Every year on 15th June long que can be seen in the temple and not less than 10 lakhs are offered annadaan. On one occasion, there was short supply of Ghee and food was to be served, HH ordered his disciples to borrow few tins of ghee from Holy River flowing adjacent to the temple premises and accordingly the same was used as ghee for serving food. After some time ghee tins arrived at the premises and HH ordered his disciples to return the equi quantity of water which was turned out as ghee, to the river by pouring the tins of ghee into the river. Friends, this looks like interesting and it is the only just simple one example of our great sages in Himalayan Ranges. The temple is situated on the way to Almora ranges of Himalaya- a lovely place like a valley amidst silver snow crowned mountains. Just after crossing Almora we have stopped at another interesting spot named as GOLU BHAGAVAN temple. He is known for justice. There are hundred of papers hanged by the devotees from several places in India seeking justice in their respective matters. Interestingly bells of different sizes are hanged as per devotees interest to call for justice and results of divine nature. Friends I have tied many bells in the temple since I am interested in most of you and I know the problems that are being faced by you. I only seek divine blessings in most of the cases for the reason I believe in it and I desire to do it without any reward or remuneration purely in your interest. I get satisfaction in it. It is REALLY A TOUGH TASK TO TRAVEL TO SUCH AN ALTITUDE AMIDST SEVERAL ODDS. But the Holy Lord is with me and it is who dictates me to do. Yesterday I visited Sukratal – another important place on the way to Roorkie – just 21 km from Muzafarnagar on the banks of River Ganga where Sage Suka recited the Holy Mahabharat to Parikshit Maharaj at the time of his death. several sages are available and it is a very very sacred place. More information is available to you with photos on this shortly. Yours affly HARA HARA MAHADEVA DR P V SESHA SAI 27TH SEPTEMBER 2002

In Praise of Motherland - India


In Praise of India

1. Will Durant, American historian: "India was the motherland of our race, and Sanskrit the mother of Europe's languages: she was the mother of our philosophy; mother, through the Arabs, of much of our mathematics; mother, through the Buddha, of the ideals embodied in Christianity; mother, through the village community, of self-government and democracy. Mother India is in many ways the mother of us all"

2. Mark Twain, American author: "India is, the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grand mother of tradition. our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only."

3. Albert Einstein, American scientist: "We owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made."

4. Max Mueller, German scholar: If I were asked under what sky the human mind has most fully developed some of its choicest gifts, has most deeply pondered on the greatest problems of life, and has found solutions, I should point to India.

5. Romain Rolland, French scholar : "If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India."

6. Hu Shih, former Ambassador of China to USA: "India conquered and dominated China culturally for 20 centuries without ever having to send a single soldier across her border."

7. Mark Twain: "So far as I am able to judge, nothing has been left undone, either by man or nature, to make India the most extraordinary country that the sun visits on his rounds. Nothing seems to have been forgotten, nothing overlooked."

8. Keith Bellows, VP - National Geographic Society : "There are some parts of the world that, once visited, get into your heart and won’t go. For me, India is such a place. When I first visited, I was stunned by the richness of the land, by its lush beauty and exotic architecture, by its ability to overload the senses with the pure, concentrated intensity of its colors, smells, tastes, and sounds... I had been seeing the world in black & white and, when brought face-to-face with India, experienced everything re-rendered in brilliant technicolor."

9. Mark Twain: "India has two million gods, and worships them all. In religion all other countries are paupers; India is the only millionaire."

10. A Rough Guide to India: "It is impossible not to be astonished by India. Nowhere on Earth does humanity present itself in such a dizzying, creative burst of cultures and religions, races and tongues. Enriched by successive waves of migration and marauders from distant lands, every one of them left an indelible imprint which was absorbed into the Indian way of life. Every aspect of the country presents itself on a massive, exaggerated scale, worthy in comparison only to the superlative mountains that overshadow it. It is this variety which provides a breathtaking ensemble for experiences that is uniquely Indian. Perhaps the only thing more difficult than to be indifferent to India would be to describe or understand India completely. There are perhaps very few nations in the world with the enormous variety that India has to offer. Modern day India represents the largest democracy in the world with a seamless picture of unity in diversity unparalleled anywhere else."
