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


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.


Visit to Kolkatta 2004

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
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."

It is my desire not to write any thing relating to religion etc. But it has become essential that I felt bad in some of the areas particularly relating to non-maintaining of uniformity in the age-old procedures and systems.

In the recent past I have noticed a lay man- a villager asking straight one of the Jagadgurus of one Sankara Peetham when there was a confusion on the day of observing one of the prominent Hindu Festival. His Holiness could not answer the lay man’s question. What I wonder is that there is no REGULATORY AUTHORITY in the matter of publication of Calendars. There is no system in India as such to judge the suitability and authenticity of publication of Hindu Religious calendars. Any one can claim as the PUNDIT and start publishing any calendar. In other words there is no check system. This has not only led to confusion amongst the followers of the calendars but also defamed the system over a period of time.

No two calendars in the country specify uniform time and days of panchang. Hindu religion is ONLY ONE and there can not be any preaching that only one Lord is supreme and not the other Lord. Some of the Seers or Jagadgurus claim that one Lord is superior to the other and vice versa. They should be informed that there should not be any in-fight between them to dilute the unity and authenticity of the Religion in total. I have seen that some of them in order to establish their supremacy, watering the main theme and nature of the Religion, claim and propagate that one Lord is the only supreme Lord and every one has to follow the same. Already this Religion is facing splits and it is certain over a period of time people migrate to other religions where there are less conflicts and complications in the system.

Any preacher should follow a code of conduct and respect the other branches evenly and the Government has to take steps in this direction. All Religious calendars should be published with a consensus duly depicting uniform dates, time and muhurat as per Indian system followed since centuries. This will help protecting people’s interest and create confidence among the followers that their interest is taken care of.

This may not, however, be possible in the existing polluted political environment since an attempt to correct the system may itself take a different turn. At least the religious head should take some steps towards this and help the Hindus to gain confidence that they ARE ONE.

In the recent past I have seen many books and magazines with number of cartoons and jokes on Hindu Religious deities and Heroes of the Hindu Origin. Many pictures too were produced using the deities as laughing stocks. Never there is an occasion on this HOLY GLOBE to use the Lords of other religions for such joyous entertainment. Most unfortunate it is, we have good number of Jagadgurus and Seers but what has been done to arrest this type of trend is clearly visible for all of us. The Government obviously tied up with its limitations on this subject and IT MAY NOT DO ANY THING ON ITS OWN TO ARREST THIS TREND. But it is the duty of the Religious heads to take some corrective steps towards this. If the Lords of the Religion are laughed at, what kind of discipline we can inculcate?

I suggest that there should be a platform that all religious heads join and make an attempt to stop all unwanted things first. It is also time to give up in-fights and move towards uniformity and oneness.

Support to the less fortunate
There are less complications in other religions and it can be observed that the FOTUNATE have started extending their helping hand to the LESS FORTUNATE collectively and with a common motive. In our country, though individuals help the less fortunate with all sympathy, nothing much could be seen at a collective point to eradicate the differences between sects. Material support such as distribution of clothes and food items – the base minimum requirements for any one, free distribution of literature and educative texts relating to the promotion and protection of the religious integrity are to be improved upon. There is some kind of weakness, which has to be gradually cut short, and a kind of oneness should be promoted by all concerned.


The rituals and offering of oblations are basically from Sanskrit Texts and they are clear in their approach. There is no possibility of any individual interpretation and modification in the text. In the recent past Kumbh – Pushkar was observed for the Holy River Godavari. I have personally visited the banks of the Holy River in Godavari District of AP in Godavari District of AP and in many parts of Maharashtra too. Each one follow his own systems and some cut short the procedure to ten minutes and some draw the same to hours. Ultimately what has to be done is only one – Offering of oblations to the departed souls. Though money pays a vital part but I have noticed poor knowledge amongst priests and perhaps that was the time for them to make money. Interesting it is, during the same time I also visited some parts in Northern India like Pushkar in Rajastan where I found number of priests sitting on the banks but most of them are not aware of any Sanskrit text. They just do their business in their own style.

The purpose of my writing this is to bring some kind of disciplines in the procedure. Though the Government can not do anything due to various reasons, at least the religious heads like the Peethadhipathis should do something and they should formulate a system where upon each priest is tested and an identification mark to the extent of his qualification be given to him permitting him to undertake the job at various places in the country. Thus certain standards are gradually introduced and this creates confidence amongst the persons and their faith is protected as per the original texts of Vedic Sciences.

All that I wish to mention is to make out a REGULATORY BODY covering these aspects so that the faith of the Hindus is properly protected and the systems are followed in the line expected of them. This also will help strengthening of the religious base for the Hindus and the less fortunate in the religion are taken care of.

My dear friends

You have been informed about our program to the great Himalayas from 21st of May. In fact I have given the contact cell number etc in my letter dated 18th May but incidentally it is of no use in the extreme heights of the GREAT HIMALAYAN MOUNTAINS. The long gap is really undesirable and we remained helpless till we reach plains.

The first step to the Himalayan ranges is HARDWAR. The spelling indicates two important meanings – one being Haridwar – the gateway to the Holy valley of Lord Vishnu; the second being Hardwar – the gateway to the Holy valley of Lord Shiva. By and large, the place is the gateway to the valley of Lords. River Ganga touches plains at this place and in the ancient days King Bhagirath said to have offered prayers to Lord Shiva to bring Ganga and thus the great river reached plains at this place. The beauty of the river can not be simply described on this small piece of note. Initially any one – ladies or gents; aged or children; ailing or healthy when once they see the Holy river at the place, they just feel like taking a bath in the river and it is a common matter, when once a person touches the river for taking bath, he coolly forgets the moments of time. The experience remains to be quite rich in the memory of any one.

There are hundreds of Dharmasaalas in the place quite well managed and some of them have A/C rooms too. Gosaalaas are maintained a few dharmasaalas and annadaana is a pleasant activity in this area. Any one can see monks, sadhus, saints, and rishis in the area and it is an EMPIRE OF SPIRITUALITY. Any one can experience some thing beyond religion.

On one side of the Ganga we can see Goddess Manasa Devi on one hilltop and on the other bank again on a hilltop we can see Goddess Chandi Devi. The ropeway to both the temples is quite nice. Around 600 mts rope way to Manasa Devi and more than 800 Mts. rope way to Chandi Devi gives us an opportunity to pay a visit to both the temples in one day. The rope way to Chandi Devi is said to be the second lengthiest rope way in India while the first one being Auli rope way with more than 4800 Mts. length and at an altitude of more than half a kilometer from ground level and more than 1700 Mts. from sea level.

We normally perform Annadaana – food feeding; and feeding cows with fresh fruits and vegetables on each occasion as and when we pay a visit to the place. We feel like serving the saints fresh cooked food and we enjoy serving ourselves instead of donating to an ashram for such activity.

The next important place in the footsteps of Himalayas is Rishikesh. Friends, God granted us an opportunity of performing a great yagna at Rishikesh way back in 1988 when we constructed a shed for performing yagna there and it still remains to be there. We took more than 100 pundits to the place from Vijayawada and a truckload of material for the activity. It was a ten day long yagna. We really wonder as to how God granted us such opportunity in those days. At this stage we dare not performing such a lengthy program. When we keep our head up, we can just look at the mighty mountain as if questioning us what a human being is in front of it. Where are we really before it? What we see at this place is a simple STONE LIKE OF THE MIGHTY MOUNTAIN. We are yet to climb and see its real shape beyond and beyond…

We are on our way to Kedarnath and Badrinath. Both the places are in different directions each situated at a total distance of 300 kilometers from Hardwar and both places interconnected at a distance of 170 kilometers. Thus 300 plus 300 plus 170 – totally 770 kilometers journey at the edge of Himalayan ranges is a must in case one is interested to visit both the places. The total height one may touch is around 3900 Mts. from sea level and only snow and snow – nothing else. Both the temples are open from May to October only and on Diwali day both the temples gets closed. It is for the reason that both the temples remain under deep snow during the six months time and it is practically impossible for any one to reach the area.

Kedareswar Lord is one of the Jyothirlingaas out of twelve. Holy River Mandakini witnesses the journey to Kedar. It looks as though the river starts witnessing our journey and gives us an impression that it is ready for refreshing us with its cool breeze. The entire journey is on the banks of River Mandakini – a tributary to Holy River Ganga. The journey by road ends just 14 kilometers from Kedarnath, at Gowrikund. Gowrikund is a height of 2700 Mts. above sea level and one has to climb up to 3900 Mts. i.e. 1200 Mts. additionally within 14 kilometers to have Holy darshan of Lord Shiva at Kedar. At the Holy footsteps of Kedar five rivers – MANDAKINI, SARASWATHI, SWARGADWARI, KSHEERGANGA, MADHUGANGA join and accepts the name of MANDAKINI. One has to cross the river to take darshan of Lord. There is good number of Dharmasaalas in the area. Adi Guru HH Jagadguru Shankaraacharya Samadhi is just behind the temple. On the four sides of temple one can see the snow filled mountains. Perhaps to keep us fresh Lord must have arranged a hot water spring at Gowrikund. It looks as though the water is at the boiling point but when once a person enters into the pond, one feel like staying there instead of coming out even for a moment. It is really a thrilling experience at Gowrikund. The 14 kilometers distance is a steep up narrow road and any one can reach the top either by walk or by horse riding. Good number of Horses is available for rent. Though it is not a very comfortable journey at this point, one forgets all the pains in between upon touching the holy Lord. It remains to be a life time experience for any one.

There are four dhaams for the Lords – Rameswaram in the South India, Puri Jagannath in Orissa, Dwaraka in the western India and Badrinath on the northern India. The temple of Lord Badrinath is open only for 6 months in a year. Badrinath is at a height of 3500 Mts. above sea level and this too is surrounded by snow filled mountains. It is a valley and called valley of Lords. Very comfortable arrangements are made for stay by Gharwal mandal. Good food is available. There are so many dharmasaalas with good arrangements. One may have to walk less than a kilometer to take darshan of the Lord at Badri Temple. In the bone biting cold, to keep up afresh Lord has created Tapt Kunds – Hot water springs at different places at his footsteps. The water is at a boiling point and the pond though initially causes some fear, when once a person enters the pond it is quite difficult for him to come back, for, he will be reluctant to come back. It is such a pleasant and nice experience. Normally at Badrinath, one feels like offering Oblations to the departed souls. There is a place called BRAHMA KAPAL nearer to the temple where such offerings are made to keep the souls rest in peace.

There is SESHA NETHRA, BHIM PUL, BHAGAVAN VYAS GUPHA(CAVE), GANESH GUPHA, SARASWATHI STAL, KESAR PRAYAG, VASUDHARA, LAKSHMI VAN, MUCHIKUND GUPHA ALL OF THEM WITHIN A RADIUS OF JUST ONE OR TWO KILOMETERS OR A LITTLE ABOVE. Having gone to such a Holy place, one should really enjoy seeing the places and back to their respective places with an added vigor and courage.

How do you expect a small man like me to conclude the trip in just one page note? It is beyond my capacity and lot many experiences are to be shared with you. I fear for your time. I shall not disappoint any one with half the way of the information.

Yagnaas are performed for the betterment of all of us. Annadaana has also taken place, the prasad is ready and for a few I may not be able to send the same by mail.

Much to share – my heart feels like making you all sit in front of me and starts narrating the experiences step by step so that you too are made a part of the enjoyment.

I am coming back to you with a small briefing on Gupta Kashi, Deva Prayag, and Neelkanth and similar other places which we visited once again and we are with documentary evidences of our meeting the great rishis and sages.

I shall be back again soon…………………HARA HARA MAHADEVA DR P V SESHA SAI

My dear friends

The best days of the year are just ahead of you. You may be aware, as per the ancient Indian order of life it is said DHYAANA MOOLAM GURONMURTY; POOJAMOOLAM GUROPADAM; MANTRAMOOLAM GUROVAKYAM; MOKSHA MOOLAM GUROKRUPA. It means, for all meditations and centralizing the energy the masters physical features are the roots; for all worships only the Holy Lotus feet of the master; for all the sound commands called as MANTRA the words of the master; and for all elevations only the MASTERS BLESSINGS. Thus the master is considered ALL and he is the only ONE WHO CAN MAKE US TO DO THE THINGS.

Most unfortunate, these days masters are made as a laughing stock and the powerful media – cinemas are mostly responsible for belittling the masters and their capacities. The importance of the master is totally ignored. Something and really something is to be done in this regard lest our next generation has to face the results of the egoistic poisonous seeds which are being planted today by unethical elements for a momentary pleasure.

Had we not cared for what our Guru said in the childhood days quite innocently listening to the teachings and all that WITH A BLIND BELIEF, we might not have reached to this level. The Gnana Netra – the internal eye of wisdom can be opened only with the blessings of Guru. The parents have a very little role in our life – we are all born for a momentary pleasure, but refinement and achievements have all become possible with the blessings of selfless sacrifices of GURU only. PERHAPS YOU WILL AGREE!

Leaving this topic here, I desire to present a wonderful occasion where RAJA YOGA can be achieved quite successfully this year during the time and dates mentioned hereunder.

2nd July 2004 Friday Morning 6.30 to 7.45 – THIS IS THE GURU POORNIMA DAY OF THE YEAR.
30th July Friday 11.00 Am. to 1.00 p.m.; 30th August 2004 Monday Evening time 8.00p.m to 9.30p.m

Friends, I repeat and request you not see a human being in any master. Master can only help us to cross the ocean of sorrow and innocence and he is the ONLY LADDER AVAILABLE FOR OUR SUCCESS. Please do not see the physical shortcomings in the master, only then you will be able to see a mighty man. A person who tries to find faults in Guru can not concentrate to absorb the best qualities from the Master. Thus our own perception and our own inferences remain as great walls for our success. THE MASTER IS ALWAYS A MASTER – WHETHER YOUNG OR OLD; MALE OR FEMALE; HANDSOME OR OTHERWISE; WELL POSITIONED OR NOT.


Let us respect our MASTER – let us remain successful – let us reach the destination fast with HIS blessings.

I shall be back again soon…HARA HARA MAHADEVA DR P V SESHA SAI

My dear friends,

Myself and my wife have just returned from our ten days long trip to SOMNATH AND DWARAKA. As usual it is our desire to share our experiences with you. We have first visited SURAT and after performing a havan at Surat where we enjoyed the first rain in the drought hit GUJARAT, before we got up from our seats in front of SACRED AGNI. People around us really enjoyed the great event. And that is the beginning for the rains in Gujarat this year. We went straight to Dwaraka in a train the journey of which was continued for nearly 17 hours. We have taken the darshan of Shri Bhadkeswar Mahadev in the Arabian sea; later enjoyed the sun set sitting at Gita Mandir and Gayathri Mandir. The Siddeswar Mahadev temple is one of the oldest temple where we observed a tree which must have been aged not less than 1000 years. Therefrom we went to Dwarakadhish temple and Sarada Mutt in the temple complex. The dwarakadhish temple is the oldest temple in the City. The artistically curved sandi stone to the top of the temple is really worth enjoying. The age of the temple might be to the 10th century as per my personal estimates basing on the architectural values of that age.

The next day we went to Daarukavan to offer prayers to the JYOTHIRLING NAGESWAR. By the time we reached that place the temple was just open and we have carried all pooja material with us including Homam samagri. We were the first persons to enter the Garbhaalay and to perform full length abhishekam to Lord Shiva – the main deity and we are really fortunate. The temple was reconstructed by film maker Shri Gulshan Kumar a few years ago and in the temple complex a very huge Lord Shiva (Dhyan Mudra) idol was installed the height of which is more than 100 feet. Probably a few lakhs of cement bags must have been used for this purpose.

From Lord Nageswar we went to the Bank of ARABIAN SEA to cross it and to reach Bet Dwaraka-the last remains of the original DWARAKA of LORD KRISHNA. Boat facility was available to reach that place. The ancient fort of Lord Krishna was submerged and the Government has taken care to collect the remains of the Fort from the sea waters. However old temples are still available in Dwaraka inspite of several attacks by Muslims in the good olden days. We returned back to Dwaraka which is more than 30 kms away from Bet Dwaraka. The word Bet in Gujarati means ISLAND. The word Bet in Hindi denotes the sacred meeting of SUDHAMA AND LORD KRISHNA. That is the reason why offerings are made to others there with a view to receive the blessings of Lord Krishna, for, Lord Krishna blessed His friend Sudhama in the similar manner during Dwapar Yug. We are however not satisfied since we could not offer prayers on behalf of most of you in a manner that satisfies us as such we once again planned to visit the sacred temples once again the next day. It was a costly affair to stay in the city, for the reason it is a pilgrimage centre and besides that it is a sea coast where humidity is at its peak.

The next day once again we visited all the places once again and felt satisfied that we could complete our mission in the lines expected of us. During the course of the journey, we visited GOPI TALAV where the 16000 and odd GOPIKAS breathed their last at the end of the Yadav era. It is believed that Gopikaas ultimately entered the water tank to give up their lives. The mud stones collected from the tank are used as CHANDAN which is named as GOPI CHANDAN. We have brought a few stones for distributing amongst you all. It is really a sacred CHANDAN which can be enjoyed. The Rukmini Mandir is another attraction which is dated back to 7th century. According to the great epic, the Sage Durvasa gave a curse to Rukimini that sweet water shall not be available any time in those parts. Hence JAL DAAN is considered to be a sacred daan at that place. They bring water for drinking purpose from different other places and offer the same to the pilgrims who ever visit the temple.

We are reassuring you that what ever we are doing we are doing collectively for all of us, we wish that we all should travel together with a common goal. Somnath news in another letter.

3rd November 2004


You may be aware that the Dhan Trayodasi falls on 10th November 2004. In North India particularly this is observed as one of the best DAY OF THE YEAR. People purchase atleast one gram of gold in token remembrance and respect of Dhan Lakshmi and worship Gold. This is a usual practice in rural India of North. Perhaps it is very rare who do not respect this day in North India. The five-day period starting from Dhan Trayodasi and ending with the Vidiya –Bhagini Hasta Bhojan on the bright second day of Kartik is considered very sacred. Dhan Trayodasi followed by Naraka Chaturdi, Diwali, Kartik bright day one and followed by taking of food from the co born sisters on Yama Vidiya day i.e. on the bright second day of Kartik month.

On Dhan trayodasi day i.e. on 10th November this year, as per the information received from elderly saints, one should try to worship any form of Goddess. The best form of worship this year is suggested as MERCURY LAKSHMI or BLACK STAR TORTOISE with DHAN KARAK NUMBER PLATE ON ITS BACK IN SILVER OR GOLD. Therefore please try to worship either MERCURY LAKSHMI OR BLACK STAR TORTOISE WITH DHAN KARAK NUMBERPLATE ON ITS BACK IN SILVER OR GOLD OR ATLEAST COPPPER.

According to a paper report it appears that even some foreigners prefer the Mercury Lakshmi in their homes and this culture is gradually gaining importance even in western countries since they tasted the significance of this form of worship.


Wishing you all the best and wishing you all to receive the divine blessings of Goddess.

It is necessary to remember that processed foods and harmful chemicals in our environment cause stress to the body. Nutrient levels are lower in conventionally farmed foods and the toxicity of synthetic pesticides undermine health. Allowing toxins to enter bloodstream can effect brain function, mood and energy level, causing secondary immune and bio chemical reactions. It is a fact that our digestive tract has the highest amount of immune activity of any area in the human body, making the detoxification process a natural way to heal.

It is important to drink water whenever one feel thirsty. DILUTION IS THE SOLUTION TO POLLUTION---keeping this in view, flushing toxins with the fluids is considered ideal today. Some suggestions to upkeep health:-

1) Morning upon rising one has to take atleast 2 glasses of water preferably filtered, spring. One glass of water with a half a lemon squeezed into it is all the best.
2) One piece of fresh fruit at room temperature at breakfast is further best. It is to be chewed well. This is to be followed by a bowl of cooked whole grain (millet, amaranth, quinoa, buckwheat, or brown rice) with 2 table spoon full of fruit juice and adding a little tamari or better butter.
3) Between 10 a.m and 3 p.m it is essential to take one or two cups veggie water saved from steaming vegetable and adding a little SEA salt. Please sip slowly to ensure that each mouthful mixes well with saliva to make the most of the digestive enzymes.
4) During Lunch one or two medium bowls of various steamed vegetables like potatoes, yarns, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, beets, asparagus, kale, chard, cabbage etc are to be eaten while chewing well.
5) Dinner is also suggested in the similar fashion.
6) Teas are suggested in between but purely herbal teas only like chamomile, pau d’arco, peppermint or blends etc.

One may feel weak during the first couple of days of cleansing and detox to adjust to the diet above mentioned but AMAZINGLY this will pass. By 3rd or 4th day one should feel adjusted and comfortable. It is necessary that sufficient mental make is essential to accept the diet suggested in the mind-body theory.

In the recent past when we were interacting with some aged people, we came to know the wonderful effect of DALCHINA CHEKKA in Telugu; Varaanga in Sanskrit; Daalchine in Hindi; Cinnamon in Botany etc. We have referred to the relevant texts in Ayurvedic Materia Medica and as per the Authorized Version the information relating to the tree is as under.

It is a tree and it is grown in Asian countries more particularly in India, Ceylon, and China. The Indian Botanical name of it is INDIAN CINNAMON (c. Iners); in Ceylon it is Ceylon Cinnamon (C.Zeylanicum) and in China it is Chinese Cinnamon. According to BHAVA PRAKASIKA the China based tree is one of the best and the next best is that of Ceylon. Indian-based trees are considered least effective in terms of Botanical values. It is called as LATA PARNI in South India. In Sanskrit it is also called as GUDTWAK. According to ATRI SAMHITI – VAHNI MANDYA NILAHARA MADHMANAAKSHATA NASANAM VANTYU KLESA PRASAMANAM SANGRAHI DASANANTI HRUT, TWNCHA TAILAM RAJAH SRALITOYE KSHIPTAM NI MAJJATI. According to this application of this tree trunk dried piece is quite safe and comfortable.

According to Vaideva Nighantu – the juice of Dalchina Chekka is capable of arresting dysentery, blood motions, and vomiting too.

In Indian Traditional Systems, this is also taken as a part of TAAMBOOLAM – pan. Thus a system is developed in Indian Houses to consume it in little quantities every day after meal. In some parts of the country it is also used as a main spicy food in MASAALAAS etc.

In the recent report it is observed that this is capable of acting as a remedial measure for diabetes. Thus it is likely to be a promising natural boon for the DIABETIC in the days to come.

I have already informed you that I am not capable of getting this tested in a lab, but restrain myself to the experiences only. IT IS DUE TO PAUCITY OF FUNDS. We have many plans to help the less fortunate in the society particularly in health matters. We have energy to interact with the tribal of forests who are more familiar with this type of techniques; we can travel; we have energy to bring the outcome of our research to the Global use; BUT SURELY WE ARE NOT CAPABLE FINANCIALLY to undertake these studies. MOST OF OUR STUDIES ARE HANGING UP AT THIS POINT, lest we would have brought certain unusual wonders to the benefit of the Society by this time.

2ND MARCH 2004


On 25th of February I came to know about an unusual Lord Ganesha Idol in Bikkavolu near Kakinada in East Godavari District. I paid a visit to the place to know about it. The place is around 16 kilometers from Kakinada on Kakinada-Rajahmundry road. I met the age old priest Shri Gollapalli Venkata Chalapathi who has been there for more than 50 years. He said that the idol is a swayambhoo and according to him the idol is increasing year by year. The name of the Lord is known as SRI VIJAYAANAND GANAPATHI. It is a single stone carved one and according to our measurement it is 90 x 50 inches. I have seen water coming out from the bottom portion of the left leg of The Lord. As per the priest, a wish gets fulfilled if a request is made at the ear of the Lord silently. As per our study it should have been installed between 849-892 A.D by the then emporers of the area CHALUKYAS of the Eastern Region. Any way it is worth visiting to pay respects.

On our return to Rajahmundry we went to Gollala Mamidada another village nearer to Bikkavolu. It is the temple of Lord Rama. It is being managed by a group of family members. Dwarapudi Subba Reddy and Dwarapudi Rami Reddy established the temple in 1889 A.D. The carvings are really wonderful. The mirror palace takes us to the ancient MAYA SABHA in the Pandava empire. It is a remarkable achievement of the family to construct 160 ft height Gopuram in Eastern side and 200ft Gopuram in Western Side of the temple in 1948 and 1956 respectively. The temple is still under the private management of the family.

Interesting it is, the Chalukya Empire of the Eastern Region constructed wonderful temples in the area. According to the scripts BIKKAVOLU is nothing but BIRUDANKINA VOLU. That means it is a TITLED place. There is another temple and the main shrine is LORD GOLINGESWARA SWAMY. This was constructed by the emporer during 849-892 A.D and the temple is under the management of Endowments Department. I have seen the bachelor form of Lord Kumaraswamy – son of Lord Shiva. It is said that the Kumara Swamy is worshiped as a bachelor in this place. We have also seen a real snake pit at the main idol and that day being the SHAHSTI we enjoyed taking darshan of the Lord in the real and original form.

Another temple – a protected monument is also seen in the area and the main shrine being Lord Sun – Suryanarayana Murthy – Sun God. The main deity is worshiped as a part of Vaishnavite theory of Hindu Religion.

Dear Friends

It is my desire to share with you my experiences during the trips, which are granted to us by the grace of Lord. I am just expressing what I really found in the state of Bihar and Jarkhand in these two days from spiritual angle.

Baba Dham: This baba dham is nothing but the Holy abode of Lord Vaidyanath. This is in the state of Jarkhand. Any one can visit the site of baba dham at for detailed information. We reached the place since some people believe this as one of the Jyothirlinga peethams. There are surely doubts with regard to two jyothirling peethas and it is most unfortunate that none of the authenticated sources specify which is correct and which is not. Parle Vaidyanath in Maharashtra temple authorities claim that it is the really Prajvalyam. People of baba dham claim that this is the original one. But to our knowledge and as per the historical evidences available, perhaps PARLE VAIDYANATH is the original Jyothirling. Any way a detailed newsletter is separately being sent in this regard. LAKHS OF PEOPLE ARE NOW VISITING BABA DHAM SINCE THIS IS THE HOLY SRAVAN MAAS AS PER NORTHERN CALENDAR. IT IS NOTHING BUT SABARIMALAI OF KERALA DURING JANUARY. In spite of all the rush, at the time we visited the temple, it was really a blessing of Lord we had a clear and free temple darshan twice amidst the fear that whether we would have a single darshan or otherwise. We offered sacred navagraha material to the Havan Kund. Later we paid a visit to HH Balanand Brahmachari ashram around four kilometers from Devghar and further proceeded to TAPOVAN around 7 km from that place. This tapovan is a sacred place where the HH performed his TAPASYA for long time and had darshan of Lord Shiva in a cave. There are several caves in that area. Any one can climb up through the organized steps arranged by the temple trustees. But while coming down it is really a patience testing exercise unlike in other temples for the reason any one has to get down from the hill through a very zigzag way through narrow passages and caves. It is really a fantastic experience for us and we enjoyed the trip. We request everybody not to miss the opportunity of visiting the TAPOVAN during your visit to BAIDYANATH. I have been repeatedly asked about the panchayatan and particularly the genesis of LORD GANESH stone, which is worshipped in panchayatanam. It is from Sone River, which is in between Patna and Jaisidhi (Devaghar-Babadham) and on the way to Howrah.

Just before leaving for Assam we enjoyed seeing GOLGHAR in Patna situated on the banks of Holy River Ganga. It appears the British army used to store the grain imported from different places through Kolkata Port and transported through steamer to the Patna port. The storage house is a circular tomb like at a height of nearly 200 ft and steps of more than 300. It is worth visiting this place once. I shall be back again soon from Assam with lot of useful information. Please store this. The name of the pundit who helped us at Devghar and the Hotel number are transmitted to you in a while.

My dear Friends

We are back at Hyderabad today. We left for Gauhati from Patna. Just the day we started our journey we came to know that Assam is over flooded with Brahmaputra water. It was a tough time for us to reach the destination and by Goddess grace we could reach on time. 12th July, Monday was Ekadasi as per Hindu calendar and we enjoyed performing a great yagna in the Holy temple of Goddess Kamakhya. As per Assamese language KAA-MAKYA means the great grand mother. This is the most ancient temple in these parts and people of Assam particularly worship this Goddess. According to Hindu scriptures, the sacred part of Goddess Sati has fallen in these parts and thus the temple remain closed for four days in a year in the Ashada maasa of North Indian calendar. There is a difference of fifteen days for the calendar of North and that of South. Our Year is SRI TARANA and theirs Hevilambi. The new month starts for them immediately after the bright day of the moon and for us after the dark day.

Thus it is the most sacred month – Sravan for them. Thousands of devotees are visiting the temples in the North India and it is like an ocean in these parts. Incidentally Brahmaputra River – the mightiest river of India is in spate and it looked like an ocean and the other border of the river is not seen in many parts. Assam is really very rich in its natural resources. The treasures of Assam are the thick forests. One gets mesmerized for a while to look at the beauty of Assam and particularly the Hills and the rivers.

Back to the topic on Kamakhya – the Holy temple is situated on Nilachal Hills of Assam. Assam as you all know is the gateway to the North East of India. The Holy River Brahmaputra is nothing but LOHITAS OR LOUHITYA RIVER. The temple is surrounded by its scenic beauty of excellence of the Nature and people of varied castes. It is one of the eighteen sakti temple of India as per Devi Bhagavata, Devi Purana, Kalika Purana and so on. Divine builder Lord Viswa Karma is associated with the temple as well Kind Narakasura of ancient PARGJYOTISHPURAM. The origin of KAMAKHYA TEMPLE is pre aryan. The original temple was destroyed by Muslims in their crusade against Hindu temples and idols. This happened in the early part of the 16th Century. The temple was reconstructed in its present form in 1665 A.D.

It is really a difficult task to visit this place as it takes much time through train journey. Perhaps it is a life time visit for those who reside in South India. One should also collect the red cloth used for Goddess during those days as it is considered to be a fortune bringer.

All the temples of ten Mahavidyas are around the temple. They are KAMAKHYA(tripura sundari), BHUVANESWARI, BAGALAMUKHI, KALI, CHINNAMASTA, TARA. DHUMAVATI, MATANGI, KAMALA TARA, SHODASI. I have not seen all these temples else where in India. I have written a book on the DASA MAHAVIDYAS and it is for print but for finance.

Even today animal sacrifices are a common matter in this temple. We performed a very good yagna for quite a long time in the temple praying for the welfare of most of you those who are in continuous touch and annadaana was also performed. Many receipts are with me for the contributions I made on your behalf and they will be sent to you in due course of time. We have also visited the Holy Navagraha temple – the most oldest temple where the Navgrahas are worshiped in the form of Shiva Lingaas. The prasadam is also ready and it will be sent through postal mail to those on whose behalf the prayers are made. All the best. May Goddess Kamakhya grant you all peace prosperity and happiness.

Anxiety is the body and mind’s approach to a dangerous or distressing situation. Everyone experiences some degree of anxiety at some time or the other during the course of life journey. However anxiety can occur persistently, often triggered by vague notions of a threat, and interfere with normal activities. When this happens, it’s called an anxiety disorder. Symptoms may include irritability, difficulty concentrating, and muscle tensions, particularly in the head, neck and back. Conventional medicine aims to relieve symptoms of persistent anxiety with drug therapy and to treat any underlying disorders or conflicts with psychotherapy.

Interesting it is, most of the parts of the world have accepted, one has to select a word or sound that is pleasing and say it over and over again to him with the eyes closed. In India, according to American texts, devotees of meditation call this as a Mantra. Weirdly enough, the word doesn’t have to mean anything. They call it as complete gibberish but if anyone chants it long enough according to their texts, any one is sure to calm down anyway.

Popular homeopathic remedies for anxiety include aconite and arsenic, which are highly toxic. But surely in homeopathy, doses are so diluted that a chemist might not be able to detect any trace of the main ingredient. Nonetheless, homeopathic medicines seem to produce desired results for thousands of people across the globe.

Sniff a sprig…of lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia) that is, Aromatherapists say the essential oil produced by this lovely garden plant works wonders to ease jangled nerves. In India, the traditional system of worshipping the Gods is a part of AromaTherapy where scented sticks are daily used during the course of worship time. Daily worship is a part of the system and there by the medical therapy has become an in-built technology in the routine life.

Squeeze the thumb…Practitioners of JIN SHIN JYUTSE, a Japanese touch therapy based on the principles of acupuncture; link various emotions with each finger. Worry is said to be the domain of the thumb. They suggest pressing of the thumb gently until one feels it relaxing.

Breathe easy with the Bible or other Religious Texts…Anxious Amish folks sometimes retire to a quiet spot and read the 23rd Psalm. I have personally seen this in the State of Pennsylvania in US. They close their eyes and breathe deeply allowing the psalm’s wisdom to soothe them. I have also seen some good sages in HIMALAYAN RANGES where chanting of religious texts is observed to overcome extreme situations.

Veg Out…Some people in Indiana relieve anxiety by eating two cups of raw or cooked onions and celery with every mean for a week or two.

According to Tibetan Buddhists the anxiety one experiences in this life may be linked to the behaviors from a past life, known as KARMA and this is called by the world as KARMIC CONNECTION. Tibetan medicine diagnosis of disease also takes into account an individual’s karma. And because all actions are said to occur under the influence of a mental state, the fundamental causes of disease are considered to be emotional afflictions such as desire, anger, and ignorance. These three mental states are seen as the actual causes of the diseases. Factors such as an unbalanced diet, inappropriate behavior, climate and harmful influences (such as spirits and inauspicious days) are considered secondary causes. They create the potential for negative actions in past lives to produce illness in the present. As per their theory, the activity of the mind, either in the past lives or in the present lays the foundation for disturbances of the body’s system in the on-going process of life.

According to Hindu system Vaisakha bright 3rd day is said to be AKSHAYA TRITIYA. The word AKSHAYA as per sanskrit is nothing but that one which does not reduce – kshaya. Goddess Mahalakshmi sadhana is recommended during this day. Some time ago I told most of you that LAKSHMI SADHANA is not for mere financial riches. Lakshmi sadhana is one which allows us to meet our demands with the divine supply. The supply – is a result of the efforts of all of us and it is the ultimate which is certainly not in our hands. We can only put efforts and beyond that it is decided upon by the unforeseen hand of fate. Thus, I suggest all of you to make the sadhana to take the blessings of the Goddess for the result so that our demands and supply meet. You will certainly agree that when demand and supply meet, it is a point where we get satisfied. For example, I came to know about a couple recently who were very much worried for a child, they have their demand and doctors certified that the couple is good state to give birth to a child. Still for over a decade their prayers are not heard by the Lord. The demand of the couple is genuine but then the it is not fulfilled. The purpose of mentioning this is that we have demands and they go on changing from time to time. We really put up efforts to achieve success, but for some reason or the other we remain in a helpless situation. What ever it is in a materialistic world we can never be freed from demands. That is the reason I suggest you to go for the Sadhana on this wonderful day so that each of us can move towards the destination faster than in the normal course. This is according to the great RISHI –SAGE sampradaya and it is being followed by many for the past many years.

Please take a small copper plate and draw a swastik mark on it with turmeric powder and kumkum –Roli. Light a lamp with sesame oil and keep a photograph of Goddess Lakshmi with the two elephants if possible in front of you –either in the day time or in the evening, then make out a sankalpa – the purpose for which you prefer doing the sadhana, later start chanting the Holy Mantra of Goddess Lakshmi as many times as possible.

The Mantra is OM SREEM HREEM SREEM KAMALE KAMALAALAYE PRASIDA PRASIDA SREEM HREEM SREEM OM MAHALAKSHMAI NAMAH. I believe that most of you are provided with the sadhana books printed and published by me for your use and supplied to most of you free of cost for the last two and half a years. If any one needs copies of the books, they may write to me so that the books can be referred to in time of need in such occasions which are many in this year. The next occasion falls on the eclipse day ie 4th May 2004.

Wishing all success to you in the sadhana.
