Jai Guru Hanuman! Dear Karya Siddhi Hanuman-ji,           

 

For the many devotees who attended and participated in the Sri Godha Kalyana - which commemorated the divine love story of Sri Andal Devi and Lord Venkateshwara with the beautiful decoration inspired by Vaikuntha itself -  thank you for making the event special in every sense of the word. Be sure to view the photos on Facebook from all recent Temple events including Sri Godha Kalyana.
 

In This Month...

 

In the western world, February is the month of love and valentines while in India traditionally this time of year brings the first day of Spring and the Vasanta Panchami festival. Yellow is the color usually worn during the festival representing the ripening of the spring crops and signifying auspiciousness and spirituality.

  • February 7,  Monday - Vasanta Panchami
    Along with Spring, this festival is also when many Hindus worship Devi Saraswati. Sri Saraswati puja will be performed at the Temple at 7pm. 
     Aksharabhyasa must be pre-scheduled on this auspicious day.

 Raksha Mantra

 

Om Aim Hreem Shreem
 

Shiva Rama Anagha
 

Dattayya Namaha


 

Repeat daily and often
to focus the mind
on the Almighty Lord!

 
 
Jai Guru Hanuman!
Sri Swamiji Says
Share the Divine Knowlegde
 

 

 Tapas means tapana  

which is  

a burning desire...

for the  

Almighty 


Tapas means contemplation... on the Almighty.


Tapas means inquiry...

about the Almighty.

 

Therefore Tapas is the inquiry about the Almighty done with a burning desire and deep contemplation.

~~~  

There is a symbolic meaning to the kind of things Lord Krishna did. He robbed clothes from Gopis and robbed butter, milk, etc., from others.

 

Many are shrouded with "clothes" called ego and pride. Lord Krishna steals them. He also steals ignorance. Unless these are stolen from us, we can not make significant progress in the path of spirituality.  

 

So, all the ordinary people can be called as "Gopikas". Once the process of spirituality starts, Krishna comes and steals the unwanted characteristics in us.   

~~~ 

Whatever is done to help others with an unselfish attitude, a balanced mind and a dedicated spirit is also Tapas - penance. Such actions, whether in the spiritual field or business and trade, or agriculture are all Tapas.
