DAYS TRIP TO NELAMANGALA, VIJAYA VITTALA TEMPLE


It was a long time plan to visit this ashrama,  since my bro and parents also had not seen this place, we all decided to go together. It  is around 35Kms from our place,  we reached there  in 1.5 hours. ( Luckily dint get struck in traffic).The Vishwa Shanti Ashram is located in Arasinakunte village, Bangakore  in Tumkur  highway near Nelamangala town, It is spread around 20 acres of land. Vishwa Shanti Ashram is run by a Trust. The founder of this ashram is Sadguru Sant Kesavadas and Co-founder is Guru Mataji, successor to the Sadguru Sant Kesavadas.

As soon as we entered the  Ashram, we saw a  big statue of  Vishwa  Vijaya vittala.

Lastly we went to the main attraction of the ashram, i.e a meditation centre,which has grand statue of Lord Vishnu with all 10 incarnations, also known as  " The Vishwa Roopa" , as  revealed to Arjuna by Lord Krishna . It  also has faces of lord Shiva & Ganesha. This meditation centre was very calm and gives a pleasant experience. This big statues impresses the visitors, we sat for a long time observing  different faces of god..... Mom explained us about  10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu as  1. Matsya 2. Koorma 3. Varaha 4. Narasimha 5. Vamana 6. Parasurama 7. Lord Rama 8. Lord Krishna 9. Balarama  10. Kalki

The  Chariot here, is very well designed by the Shilpi(sculptor) Kasinath from Shimoga district in Karnataka.  And an Statue  of Sapta Matruke, representing seven rivers – Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Saraswathy, Narmada, Sindhu and Cauvery. We took some snaps & started from there, as it was about to close.Temple timings are 8am to 12.30pm & 4 pm to 7.30pm
