Ganapathi Sachithananda Ashram
In the morning we visited the Ganapathi Sachithananda Ashram in Anakapalli and received darshan of Ganesha. The ashram was very nicely made and well looked after.
Kanaka Lakshmi Temple
After lunch, we visited a famous temple dedicated to the svayambhu (self-manifested) murti of Lakshmi. This murti just manifested in the middle of the road many years back and so they built a temple for her. It was really beautiful to be able to do puja on Her directly ourselves, which is very rare in any temple to be able to do that.
In the evening, Guruji spent time with all the devotees. Everyone shared their experiences from the pilgrimage while Guruji blessed personal deities and gave out gifts that He got for everyone from the pilgrimage locations.
It’s been so amazing to visit the holy pilgrimage sites of Narasimha and Sri Rama in the presence of Paramahamsa Sri Swami Vishwananda!
Thanks for joining us for this series of 'Following the Master'. Our next pilgrimage begins on 15 March 2019 for a journey to Vrindavan!
