Nothing but Ranga and only Ranga from 14th April to 18th April ...

The Tamil New Year 2011-12 (Kara) year had been a blissful start with a divine pilgrimage to Western Trichinopoly (the state of New York) culminating in the sanctum sanctorum of Sri Ranganatha at Western Srirangam (Pomona NY) on the banks of Western Cauvery (Hudson River). I wouldn't need to go detail about the same in this blog regarding the pilgrimage because that would come under the scope of "LD Voyage". 

Right from Viswaroopa darshan/Suprabhatam (waking up the Lord) till the most beautiful Sayanothsavam around 8 PM when Ranga is put to sleep had been a blissfully beautiful divine experience. The temple comes under august auspices of Sri Ahobila Mutt. The other significant deities in the temple are:

  1. Sri Krishna
  2. Sri Srinivasa
  3. Sri Sathyanarayana
  4. Sri Mahalakshmi
  5. The Twelve Azhwars
  6. Sri Bhagavat Ramanuja
  7. Sri Kodhai (aka) Sri Andal
  8. Sri Vedanta Desikan
  9. Sri Lakshmi Narasimhan
  10. Sri Sita-Rama-Lakshmana-Hanuman

I know these posts are coming like two days delayed after my return. The schedules have been hectically tight besides the physical fatigue and now returning to normalcy and vigor.

Om Namo Venkatesaya!

[Sri Ranganatha]
