  1. Danyavadah Chiraanji for the explanation. We are all waiting for that final ONE GLANCE from Sri Ram.

    Please bless and guide us to reach the first target for Mukyaprana to bring us in line in front of HIM to get that glance as per the individual yogyata.

    Bahut Danyavadah for the wonderful explanation. I was aware before that the Danurmasa marks the movement to day time in deva loka but was not aware of the subsequent details. Please let us know if you can post the Indra krut Mahalakshmi stotra that we have to recite early mornings or let us know if we have to take this as a deeksha from aachar in the mutt? Please kindly advice.

    Can we define Saadhana as the final realization Mukyaprana gives to the individual atma of the complete omnipresence of Sri Hari as per the individual yogyata of that atma?

    • Lord himself decides .. yenam mochayami ..
      then MUKHYAPRANA for whom HARI chitta is his Chitta ..puts some sense into the soul and makes him do some good things .. [till that time soul falls into all kinds of error traps and sees nothing better than world that he sees ... and for every amusement he sees he exclaims " badal bijlee chandan paani jaisa apna pyaar ...lena hoga janam hame kayi kayi baar .. haan itna madir itna madhur tera mera pyaar ..." NS trap he feels no remorse in taking births and thinks life is on earth where else? and woman wealth and wine www is life ... ]

      Mukhyaprana brings him on line by some few good solid shots ….
      then he becomes achcha baccha …
      then Mukhyaprana makes a case out of him and presents it to LAXMIDEVI on a fine dhanurmasa eealy morning .. LAXMIDEVI in ekanta whispers in the ears of LORD NARAYANA .. Oh jee HANUMAN keh rehe the !!!!
      and then ALL KNOWING RAAMJI casts a glance on the soul .. who YOU !
      AND SADHANA begins …….

    • Guruvaryaa I remember you mentioned once that in Dhanurmasa ‘pongal’ should be offered to LORD as naivedya …. with moong dal and rice in 1:1 proportion for best results… can we do this at home?

      Humble pranams

      Like this

      • 1:1 is adhama 1:3 is uttama … but offering pongal at home is difficult unless you are used to cooking on cowdung and wood .. and that too without usage of kerosene ..with pure cow ghee .. sitting in madi …
        if these things one is not used to then he/she must not attempt naivedya …for your own satisfaction one can do naivedya … there is no restriction on that …
        to be more precise .. naivedya should be on sanskrutagni .. and not on asanskrutpaakagni … that would be akin to cooking on street fire ..
        cooking is homa … it cannot be done on gas …. have you ever seen a priest performing homa or yagnya on a gas stove ?

        so better give it to the temple ..

        Like this

      • Guruvaryaa I can’t help admiring your uncanny knack of knowing what’s on someone’s mind while asking something… for this question you are BANG! on target…. :) I asked this for my satisfaction of doing naivedya only… and I am utterly foolish if I am thinking I will be satisfied by offering naivedya but LORD finds it unacceptable… it should be done for HIS pleasure not mine….

        You are absolutely right… cooking is not done on gas in temples… I knew it’s not acceptable… and women cannot do HARI naivedya in the first place… but I was just hoping there would be some loophole for this issue… I guess there isn’t any… ( sighing….) :(

        So I would rather not attempt it or my conscience will prick me badly…. but I am not giving up… if I can’t do it practically, I will do it in my mind… manas pooja… with madi and everything according to ‘Paak vidhi’…. sorry about that mix up of proportions but I remember you said shodasopachara is allowed in manas pooja…

        Please tell me Guruvaryaa… can I do naivedya in mind if not practically?

      • Guruvaryaa my earlier comment didn’t get posted… but you have hit the nail on my head… I asked this only for my satisfaction of doing nivedana…. anyways… please tell me if I can’t do naivedya practically, can I do as manas pooja?

    • This is a good question … let me answer it elaborately ..
      MANY PEOPLE confuse with what sadhna is ?

      AND what is SADHANA ?

      WHen you ask for any spiritual leader ..what do you get in the name of SADHANA ?
      There are many types of people in this world … each has a spiritual lurking clamour in his heart .. BUt his clamour finds rest only when his mind says yes he is acting over it !!!!

      now what is this acting over once clamour ? this depends upon the satisfaction one derives after an act of deemed spiritual nature and then one claims yes I am doing sadhana …

      If the philosophy of the spiritual guru is PATANJALI or GAUTAM shastra ..he would say the world is but a phenomenon of natural principles and it finds peace in discipline and thus sadhana becomes a set of exercises knwon as yoga and breathing …. as these philospohies do not have any place for GOD ..

      if the philosophy is centred around matter then sadhana becomes an approach to achieve equilibriu in the state of matter ..

      if the philosophy is about KARMA and its exhaustion then one tries to calm down the activity and sadhna is about achieving a state of NULL to extinguish the fire of karma ..

      If the philosophy is about being born dirty and end point lies in gettings cleanses so the sadhana is about cleansing self …
      If the philosophy is about physical well being then sadhna is about doing as much good to be as much well
      if the philosophy is about conquering the nature then 5M is employed as sadhana
      If the philosophy is aghora then sadhana is getting as dirty as possible …
      If the philosophy is simplistic then sadhna is bura mat dekho bura mat suno bura mat kaho ..love thy neighbour
      If the philosophy is about being strong then sadhana is about building mass onto biceps and triceps ..

      so as the spiritual guru decides and as the taste of the person lies , so goes the sadhana

      BUT when the philosophy is about KNOWING REALITY sadhana also becomes about being realistic ..

      Many a times sadhana just boils down to mere exercise or routine … and lot many times a sadhana is just a reciting of STOTRA / MANTRA / KAVACHA or dana !
      JUST LIKE ROTI KAPDA AUR MAKAAN .. its about JAPA HOMA aur DAAN
      DOES ONLY RECITING FEW LINES CHANGE THE WORLD ?
      CAN IT BE TERMED AS SADHANA ?

      what shud be done in grahan a ? [ recite kavach ] TELIDU SAAR
      what shud be done in chaturamasa [ recite mantra ] tELAVADU sir
      what shud be done in adhikmasa [ apoop daana ] teliyadu anna

      what shud be done in dhanurmasa [ recite stotra ] [ telidu telidu telidu idikak emi telisau bhai ]

      so recite recite recite ,,,, isse mere kya hoga ?
      then a pseudo semiscientific minded acharya in order to appease/intimidate some unscientific minded devotees will try to explain ” you SEE the sound of mantras and stotras have a vibration … these vibrations increase with japa and after prolonged japa will cause resonance with cosmic vibration and then there will be change in juxtapostion of coefficient of the linear ” [pun intended ]
      who will buy this arguments ?
      or famous argument will be ” the grahas have electromagnetic radiance and these will act on the cells of the human body and thus we have effects and japa will cause the positive interaction of these radiance …..”
      seems appealing but is mithyagyaana ..

      IS THERE ANYTHING WRONG IN ACCEPTING THE FACT THAT LORD EXISTS IN US …. LORD EXISTS IN GRAHAS … LORD IS OMNIPOTENT and LORD is dynamic entity which does things auspiciously and towards the wellbeing of his devotee .. so worshipping him earns his grace and it is completely in his capacity and power [ INFACT HE RULES ] without doubt .. to rectify the illeffects and bestow good effects …

      SIMPLE …
      BUT why do we go round and round towards electromagnetic theory … cosmic vibrance which is just as ridiculous as anthony’s NS gaffe with sole aim to invite people to PREM GALI KHOLI NUMBER 420 !

      The fact remains that most of us want to believe that world runs all by itself and the mechanism of world operations [ISO K5110] is manipulative …

      SO reciting becomes a ghisapita trend to make superstitious more and more superstitious …

      so a new theory emerges nothing lies in these karma japa homa daana ….

      MEDITATE …..sit still !
      that is SADHANA … MEDITATION how can that make difference … before you could complete your question .. a sadhu by your side elevate in the air …. OM TAT SAT !
      wow .. Hows that possible ..? SADHANA MADAM >>> [ woh kidhar milengi ]

      BUT come to TATTVAVADA … we only debate !
      PATANJALI — yoga is deha shrama
      MATTER theory – chemical locha
      AGHORA —–TAMAS sadhana
      MEdiation — advaita no no

      are bhai kare toh kya kare ?
      okay TUM log kya karte ho ….
      dhyaan vyaan kuch hai kya Madhva mein …
      hmm shastrabhyaas is manytimes more powerful than dhyaana !

      okay can I read this shastra … NO you are woman you cannot read this
      okay CAN i do naivedya then …. NO NO you are non dwija you cannot do that

      Then what shud i DO ?
      but of course SADHANA !

      Phir mera waala Sadhana kya hai ?

        Like this

        • No that is not the right answer !

          As long as we do not see LORD and his presence through the eyes of knowledge .. all the shastra and rituals of japa homa and dhyaana seems very routine and superstitious or perhaps an exercise to bring discipline in life as propounded by arya samaaj or dayanand saraswati ..
          they do all the rituals as only rituals and no IDOL or DIETY of form represents them …

          chanting is not for sthiratva …[ I want all the readers to give serious thought onto it .. without thinking ie jignyasa .. answers will not go into head ]

        Also,I do not know everything about Arya Samaj but I do know that Swami dayananda Saraswathi did emphasise on the concept of one Supreme God..Isn’t that what we believe too “..sarva deva namaskaram,keshavam pratighchati…”???

        Also,what I thought was Sadhana is the way to accomplishing God realisation…In between the stages siddhis are obtained which are detrimental on the actual goal of god realisation…

        • KESHAVAM ….

          who is Keshava ? what is KESHAVA ? these are the questions ARYA samaaji shud answer … and you shud seek ,,,

          OUR KESHAVA is VISHNU who is superior to K AND ESHA … so in our definition K and ESHA two more entities spring up … DOES DAYANANAD SARASWATI ACCEPT this entity …

          OUR KESHAVA has form he is CHENNA too ….has attribute …
          DOES SUPREME GOD REFFERED TO BY ARYA SAMAAJ HAS ATTRIBUTE ?
          NO

          then how is our KESHAVA is same as their KESHAVA ? it is infact out of moha you are saying their SUPREME GOD is KESHAVA only since we say that … but thye do not mean it …
          SO your sympathies are misplaced as you own stance is not vindicated even by arya samaaji !

          sadhna siddhi as propounded by vivekananda is faulty … siddhis come in the way of realisation is not correct .. it advises people to make udaaseen a siddhi … it seems as if siddhis are of no use and infact their use is detrimental for realisation of GOD .. how erroneous !
          If that were true then WHY DID SHRIKRISHNA ASK ARJUN TO GET SIDDHI OF ASTRA ON INDRAKEEL PARVAT

          Like this

      • Pranaam Guruji,
        Thank you for the explanation.Agreed now that their definition of K Esha does not match with ours…
        but regarding the attributes they say that:Omniscience, Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Infinite Bliss and Infinite activity…

        Guruji,Detrimental because if a person who chants gets Siddhi then,wont he(most ppl) usually get ahankara and use it in the wrong way provided he lacks right knowledge…Eg:Bhairava Siddhi obtained by a sannyasi as you had mentioned earlier…
        Isn’t this detrimental in this way??

        Why cant it be this way that though we get Siddhi(Sweet fruit) there is something much sweeter and ultimate goal(God realization) in the way and not waste time enjoying the sweet fruit..

        As far as Siddhi of astra ,this is required couldn’t it be that Lord Shree Krishna could have given the astra himself that moment but he wanted arjuna to get siddhi through his grace..is it not to show the world that Siddhi (or one can attain siddhi through God’s grace) is needed only to eradicate evil,self protection and not otherwise??

        Sorry for forking out of the main question you have asked us Guruji…Most of the doubts I had have reduced by your writings and answers in your blog…Kindly give us right knowledge and bless us…

        • infinte bliss ..infinite activity .. but finite attributes if this what is told by arya samaaj … then it is contemplating finiteness and sin ..because lord has infinite attributes .. infinite forms .. and that is truth .. just to appease a section of society and gain some brownie points we cannot twist definition and saying you are also right HINDUS omnipresent etc etc … and you are also right mr others .. no idols …no forms … this is my new philososphy !
          but where is pramana ?
          just I feel so .. how can you encompass all infinite in one imaginable form ?
          ans – subba ninna feeling yarige beku ! adunna madichi itko ! speak TRUTH man not feelings …
          ——————————————————————————————————–

          why presumption that suddhi shud give ahankaara ? there is no logic in it .. then even living simple life shud give ahankaara …I am living s also ahankaara …

          the statement lacks strength of argument…

          siddhi makes a person better person ..
          a doctor with siddhi treats better .. a sportsman with siddhi plays better .. a warrior with siddhi fights better ….for gyaana u need siddhi .. for vairagya u need siddhi for moksha u need siddhi ..for bhakti too u need sidhdhi …
          for everything siddhi is must .. you cannot say i will not be a good doctor .. let me have other sweet fruit till then …i will loiter around …
          if one says siddhi is not good just stay away from it .. then we will have all mediocre doctors sportsman etc .. and any good fellow with siddhi will be dismissed as “arre woh AHANKAARI hai , narcissist hai ,sciezophrenic hai ..eccentric hai ”
          but that us plain jealousy … khatte angoor ..

          so attain siddhi in whatever field one is …

          Shrikrishna exactly sent ARJUN to highlight the importance of vidya and sidhdhi …RAYARU has taken sajeeva samaadhi ..

          without yogasiddhdi can anybody dare to do that … after feww minutes he will send a miss call and say bahar nikalo bhai .. maine socha kuch idhar kuch aur hai >>>>

          For everything siddhi is must …

          somebody asked me question yesterday in the blog … I have seen many people asking thus .. I AHVE SEEN ONLY FAILURES IN MY LIFE >>>I WORSHIP RELENTLY BUT NO USE >>>>> HOW CAN I BELIEVE THERE IS SOMEONE ABOVE >>> I HAVE BECOME DISILLUSIONED >>> NOW I HAVE FORGOTTEN ABOUT SUCCESS AND PRAY TO NARAYANA just like that without asking anything >>>>

          what is the problem of these gentlemen is he requires siddhi … he need vashikarana for his works to be done .. he needs vighna nasha for smooth functioning … he need bhakti siddhi for grace of MUKHYAPRANA … he needs karyasiddhi …
          what he is saying as desirelessness is actually udaseenta NS mindset .. he is showing udaseenta towards LORD .. as saying YOU WILL ANYHOW NOT GIVE LET ME NOT BOTHER YOU BY ASKING …..

      • Dear Sir,
        pls accept my two cents worth.
        what is sadhana?
        and sadhana for what?
        the reason any sadhana is carried out is for two things……….
        1.ishta prapti 2.anishta parihara………ishta is moksha and anishta is samsara. even 5M walas believe this. take any sadhana shiva,shakti,ganapati,skandha,vamachara etc. the reasons/goals are same. only difference is the MEANS to achieve it. so whatever u do achieve the two is sadhana.
        first of all none (other than madhavas) have any idea of what moxa is. so desiring it is useless.
        so what they do to get it is no sadhana at all…………..reason for this failed efforts is ‘agnyana’.
        so sadhana is gnyana…….errr…….yatharth gnyana.
        ok we know visnu is supreme and vayu is best what next? now try to know more about them through shastra abhyasa……….so now sadhana is shastra abyhasa.
        ok i’m listening about lord with ekant manas and ‘apnapan’(bhakti) with lord is increasing……what next……only bhakti in him is not enough. u must start losing interest in everything but Him. ladki,dhan,nam sab ke saath bhagwan chahiye……….nahi chalega boss….nirantar shravan increases bhakti and result is vairagya.
        till here it was only warming up actual sadhana begins now i.e after one attains vairagya. bcoz till now it was only shravan proper manan is possible only after vairagya dawns. this state corresponds to the fifth stage of pratyahara in astanga yoga. outer struggle ends, now the sadhaka turns inward.

        not over yet? but what is SADHANA? sadhana is tapa i.e relinquishing all desires and nourishing only one…….the desire to see lord. when u r starving u crave food badly….with same severity one should desire the darshan of lord within……when u starve will u show interest in anything except food..will u be in that state? same is the case here..it is only to achieve this state shastra abhyasa is required…more intense the longing sooner the aproxa………

        now why should i sacrifice so much for lord? why should i know him? whats the use? and WHO is that lord? why only visnu and not others………for these ans u must earn gnyana. and once u r steadfast in that gnyana sadhana begins with…………..OM athato brahma jignyasa OM.

        till now the enquiry into BRAHMA was general,,,,, actually to make sure that he IS there…and for us……….but WHERE ??
        acharya pls correct my mistakes.

      • guruji,

        I agree with you , i have grown up in Dayanand Anglo Vedic (DAV) school. I was there for DAINIK YAJNA (Yajya). And the mantras used were of all deities specially surya. Well obviously it set a good foundation for me but i feel that all that was sort of ritualistic and as u said discipline. We were not made to learn anything for specific or like siddhis mantras or anything.

        Moreover we learnt 10 Principles of Arya samaj that described the Supreme God (devoid of physical form) in different ways.

      • Namaskar GURUDEV,

        Sir, What i do understand …

        Sadhana is ‘process’ to reach upto desired goal and siddhis are milestones/attained mastery over certain skill while doing sadhana.Siddhis helps in achieving our goal….and can give better pace to the process.

        Life itself is sadhana …everyone do sadhana right way or wrong way to achieve his/her goals in life.The more one is siddhasth or skillfull related to the goal…more easliy and quickly he would reach to the goal..

        one sets some goal obvioulsy bcoz of his wish/desire only… so deep desire is must. Deeper the desire is….more serious would be the person for his goal.

        Here, spiritually.. goal is to attain Aproksha gyaan and ultimately ‘MOKSHA’…so one will have to follow certian ‘process’ to achieve it…as per his/her yogyata.This goal is no ordinary…one can not creat his’her own process or ‘trial and error’ methods to achieve it.It would need perfect guindance and direction not just to understand the process but also how to follow the process too…like to understand LORD VISHNU one must know/understand VEDAS and to understand VEDAS one must follow BRAHMA SUTRAS…without it one can not understand VEDAS by guessing and making his own meanings…

        Gyan bhakti and vairagya are essential parts of spiritual sadhana/process.
        - Gyan is must as one should know exactly about all details regarding his goal.Means here ..Who is GOD?…How HE is…? Where HE is? etc..

        - Bhakti is must . That increases with knowledge.With out devotion one can only be a scholar…. desireless…affection for GOD…..A true one…No any taam jhaam…! ( Sir here we can say good EQ is needed??..probably only GOD can understand someones EQ… how true his EQ is?.)

        - vairagya for sansaris – a sync that has to be maintained between sansar where one lives and the process of his ultimate Goal….a sansari cannot leave at once the world and say now i have to go to himalayas for my sadhana…atleast not evetyone can do like so…

        Reciting stotras japa mantra are mediums/parts only…not the whole process…

        Why INDRA/YUDHISTHIR why not common man….?
        Matter of yogyata and GOD grace.They have inbuilt/embedded qualities very first…their DEV amshas works very well for them.More the yogya…more easily he will achieve the goal not only in lesser time but also with least efforts…

        Sir this is my understanding…yet…please kindly make me clear if i am worng…

        Thanks and Regards,
        Kalyani.

        • But the fact remains that …. more the yogyata more is sadhana and more is the period of sadhana … astonishingly more … like a truna jeeva attains moksha in few births … animals in few yugas .. humans in few bramha days … maushyottam in half a kapa … most of the people in one kalpa .. Devtas in many creations ..
          VAYUDEV after 100 creations ..
          so it is against the principle of more yogyata more quicker the goal .. its other way …lesser knowedged gets to his goal quicker ..

          BUT why do DEVTAS get their wishes fulfilled in one recitation ..how do GODESS appear just after one recitation ..
          ARJUN recites only once Durga stotra and she appears ..

        Has it then anything to do with the paap done in the previous births??Something like till debt is cleared siddhi wont be obtained??
        For moksha to devatas it is ordained by the Lord to help humans and others which is their duty and then go fr moksha??

        Sri Krishnaya Namaha
        Jai Anjaneya
        Sri Raghavendraya Namaha

        Guruji, I am putting out a few words as per my knowledge. “Sadhane” to me is to dedicate life for earning Hari Preeti and Haripada knowing He is the Ultimate. Sampoorna Bhakti towards Sri HAri is the ultimate goal. Bhakti towards Sri Hari is complete faith, respect, love, adoration, amazement, wonder, dedication, eagerness, enthusiasm in Him and His Supremacy. Hari Preeti comes when we do Karma which pleases Him .. in other words lead life in Dharma marga and then doing samarpane to Sri Hari all our karmas. In order to lead life in Dharma marga (with Hari Bhakti as main goal) we need knowledge ie Shastras … there is no point in leading life in only dharma marga without bhakti. Complete faith, devotion and dedication towards parama Gurus (Sri Madhwacharyaru, Jaya theertharu, Sri Rayaru etc) will lead to non delusional learning of shastras which pave a definite path of life of Sadhane towards Sri Hari. Siddhi is inbuilt in the learning and practicing of shastras.

        Guruji hope i havent said anything wrong. Please pardon my mistakes and correct them.

        “seraga bido ranga seraga bido
        karave mugivenomme seraga bido ||pa||

        athe kandare enna hathira seralu hariye
        chittadalobbha enna seraga bido ||1||

        maava kandare enna jiva bidanu Hariye
        jeevadollabha enna seraga bido ||2||

        ganda kandare enna gundigikkuva hari
        Pundarikaksha Purandara vittala seraga bido ||3|| ”

        I have no words the way Sri Purandara Dasaru has expressed his Devotion to the Lord Sri Hari. It is possible to only such High Souls ! Getting inspiration from these souls should be the only way of life!

        Sri Raghavendraya Namaha
        Sri Krishnaya Namaha
        Jai Anjaneya

        Dhanuramasam lo Madhva sampradayam prakaaram emi chestharo nijam gaa teliyadu Guruvaryaa anduke aduguthunnanu… meeru daya chesi koppadakandi…. naa agnyaananiki kshaminchandi…. that sounds like a thoroughly cliched expression… but I am speaking from heart… meeru kooda cheppaka pothe naaku cheppe vallu evaru? :(

        What I knew until now is … in many Vaishnava temples and homes in andhra, ‘tiruppavai’ is recited during Dhanuramasa… I understood this much that it can’t be our practice… ours doesn’t match with tamil tradition… so I wanted to know what is Madhva practice…

        With this sadhana topic you have taken the whole discussion to another level… and where is that post of yours where you gave Hari smarana homework? I browsed it in haste on my mobile yesterday but I can’t find it now…. grrrrr….

        • No fast during dhanurmasa . instead eat before 8 am everday … eating early during dhanurmasa is a sadhna in itself ..

          DHANURMASA means ..month in which SUN enters dhanurRashi saggitarius according to solar calendar ..sun enters dhanu on dec 16th and stays there till JAN 14 ….
          so next sunrise ie dec 17th forms dhanurmasa start and next sunrise after jan 14 ie jan 15 is UTTARAYAN PARVA KAALA ..
          UTTARAYANA is SUNRISE for DEVALOKA .. just as SUNrises everyday here on earth .. same SUN rises once in six months[ earthly months ] so DEVATA day is one year of earth ..a day and night is solar day … so night is DAKSHINAYANA and day is UTTARAYANA ..
          Just as we get up early in the morning before sunrise …ALL DEVATAS wakeup in the month of december and ..and then ask LORD to wake up from bed and show them light .. One cannot enter a room of married couple[ KING ] directly so the Queen [ LAXMIDEVI ] is worshipped to wake her husband and grant the blessings ..

          WIfe usually wakes up earlier than Husband … so LAXMIDEVI is awake ..and the best way to wake up anyone is by the aroma one likes most … MUDGANNA is most liked by LORD … moong is HARI’s favourite as it has LAXMISANNIDHI ..
          so WITH MUDGANNA and LAXMI STOTRA [ requesting MAHALAXMI to wake her husband NARAYANA and put forward our application ] LAXMIDEVI has given boon to INDRA that whoever does her prayer thus will be blessed with immense wealth for next seven births … and whoever sleeps during SUNRISE in dhanurmasa will suffer poverty for next seven births …

          Thus the whole month [ which is actually few minutes for devatas ] this exercise is undertaken to please LORD .. and then LORD gets ready for his Morning work by SUNRISE so JAN 14 becomes last date for offering MUDGANNA and those who could not offer MUDGANNA [PONGAL ] allthrough month can atleast give on the last day o please LORD and hence whole of mankind gives poongal as naivedya on that day .. and hence the day came to be known as PONGAL festival ..

        Your post on reciting indra krut lakshmi dwadasa nama, is most welcome at this time, when I’m struggling with debt issues.

        Chiraan ji, aarti and naivedya are a bit of an issue.
        As you said, giving for huggi seva, can you show some way of doing it from here? Will be more than thankful.

        Thanks a million.

        • you can contact chennai mutt ..or any other mutt of raghavendra swamy ..on phone ..and further directions can be sought … as huggi seva is done in all mutts …
          TTD also does huggi seva in VENKATESHWARA temples all over world but they botch up with EKADASHI dates .. so it ends up with giving naivedya on ekadashi day too .. and anusandhana is alsoa problem … moreover naivedya is cooked on gas [i suppose ] ….

          so giving in RAGHVENDRA SWAMY TEMPLES MUTT is safe bet … you can send DD etc to these mutts ..
          if ypou still feel difficulty kindly send a mail to neelambarsharma19@gmail.com you can get the needful

        Didi the ashtakshara [ 8 - lettered ( in sanskrit ) ] mantra is ….. NAMO NARAYANAYA… I hope you understood what comes first… since women should not chant that, we can chant simple mantras…

        Guruvar explained once that LORD’s names are mantras in their own right…. esp. RAMA and KRISHNA… these should be chanted without adding any word before or after…

        so just chant ‘RAAMA RAAMA RAAMA…’ and / or ‘KRISHNA KRISHNA KRISHNA…’ and you will have done it… they are simple and safe and can be chanted by anyone and everyone … and have no hard restrictions for chanting… I hope this helps….

        Only the word Iti, as far as I know and learned years ago from our family guru. But if the word Iti comes in the text of the stotra it should be said- just to remove any confusion.

        Do you also see falling snow flakes on the site? :D

      • I don’t know where my response went.

        Iti, which comes at the end of the stotras are to be omitted not the whole line. If this word comes within the text of the stotra/stuti etc. it shouldn’t be omitted. That is what I was taught by our family guru.
