Nanjundeshwara Temple


IMGP7966

Nanjangud or Dakshina Kashi is a town in Mysore district in the Indian state of Karnataka. It is a temple town and is on the banks of the river Kapila (Kabini). 


The main temple at Nanjangud is dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, whose other name is Nanjundeshwara. Nanjundeshwara means the God who drank poison. Hindu mythology quotes an interesting legend in which the Gods and demons churned the ocean in search of the nectar of immortality. During this churning, there were lots of artifacts that emanated out of the ocean, including poison. To prevent the poison from spreading across the universe and destroying it, Shiva came to the rescue and drank the poison. His wife Parvati then held his throat tightly to prevent the poison from spreading to the rest of his body. Nanjanagud literally means the place where Nanjundeshwara resides.


Nanjangud has been a major Shaiva centre since times immemorial. The original Nanjundeshwara temple is said to be of Ganga period (325 - 1000 CE). This temple has then been renovated by the Hoysala kings. Both Hyder Ali and Tipu Sultan had close associations with this temple. Wodeyar kings have provided various grants to renovate the temple.


The town is famous because of the huge temple dedicated to Lord Nanjundeswara also referred to as Srikanteswara. It is believed that sage Gauthama stayed here for some time and installed a Lingam, the idol form of Shiva. 


The temple was originally built by the Ganga rulers in the 9th century during their occupation of this region. The residing deity of the temple was later called Hakim Nanjundeswara; a title given by the Great Tippu Sultan who had faith in the God. It is said and inscribed in the temple history that his favorite and beloved elephant was bestowed with eyesight by the Lord, after Tippu Sultan's vow with the local deity. The Sultan then had a Lingam made of jade along with an emerald necklace and donated it to the temple. The Vaidya Nanjundeswara, even today is said to be a healer for his believers, and one can see even today worshippers doing Urulu seve, a ritualistic practice after bathing in the Kapila river.

Twice a year thousands of worshippers gather for the famous Chariot Festival locally known as the Dodda Jathre and the Chikka Jathre. Idols of Lord Srikanteshwara, Goddess Parvathi, Lord Ganapathi, Lord Subramanya and Lord Chandikeshwara are kept in five separate chariots and a traditional puja is performed to the idols early in the morning on the Jathre day. After the puja chariots are flagged off. Thousands of devotees pull the Chariots carved out of wood, across the streets of the old town. The town remains immersed in festivities on the Jathre days.

Near Nanjangud is the sangam, where the Kapila and Kaundinya rivers meet. This place is termed as Parashurama Kshetra which is where the sage Parashurama is said to have cleansed himself from the sin of beheading his mother. A small rivulet called Suvarnavathy also joins the rivers here. There is a temple dedicated to Lord Parashurama here.

H.G. Sankarshan das Adhikari, USA: Saturday 19 February 2011--Don't Be A Crazy Fool--and--Who Should I Accept as Guru?

A daily broadcast of the Ultimate Self Realization Course(tm) Saturday 19 February 2011 The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Sri Krishna, and His eternal consort, Srimati Radharani are enjoying transcendental pastimes in the topmost planet of the spiritual world, Sri Goloka Vrindavan. They are beckoning us to rejoin them. Our Mission: To help everyone awaken their original Krishna consciousness, which is eternal, full of knowledge and full of bliss. Such a global awakening will, in one stroke, solve all the problems of the world society bringing in a new era of unprecedented peace and prosperity for all. May that day, which the world so desperately needs, come very soon. We request you to participate in this mission by reviving your dormant Krishna consciousness and assisting us in spreading this science all over the world. Dedicated with love to ISKCON Founder-Acharya: His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, our beloved spiritual master, and to you, our dear readers. Today's Thought: Don't Be A Crazy Fool Uploaded from Bhaktivedanta Ashram--Austin, Texas USA Don't be a crazy fool who allows himself to be carried away by the misguided material civilization. It is sometimes said that fools rush in where angels fear to tread. So one should be careful what he dedicates his life to. If we simply dedicate our lives to taking care of our bodily needs, at the time of death when we are forcibly separated from our material body by the cruel laws of the material nature, we will be nowhere. Therefore the intelligent, philosophically inclined person fully dedicates his life for the reawakening of the actual self, the eternal spiritual being who resides within the body. Sankarshan Das Adhikari Answers According to the Vedic Version: Question: Who Should I Accept as Guru? What if I have still not found my guru? Whom shall I seek help to enlighten me? Please guide me. Deea. Answer: He Who Teaches Surrender to Krishna When you find that person who is presenting to you the Bhagavad-gita as it is without any interpretation, addition, or subtraction, you have found your spiritual master. Nowadays the world is being misled by so many bogus gurus who are nothing more than charlatans because they take the words of Krishna and change them to suit their own philosophy. For example in the Bhagavad-gita Krishna says, Surrender unto Me. But one bogus guru said that it is not to Krishna that we should surrender but to the unborn and unmanifested. Such gurus who twist the words of Lord Krishna are to be carefully avoided because their so-called teachings keep us entangled in the cycle of birth and death So when you find that guru who purely represents Lord Sri Krishna by telling you to surrender to Krishna, you should fully surrender unto such a guru accepting him as your eternal spiritual master. Sankarshan Das Adhikari Transcendental Resources: Receive the Special Blessings of Krishna Now you too can render the greatest service to the suffering humanity and attract the all-auspicious blessings of Lord Sri Krishna upon yourself and your family by assisting our mission.

Bharatavarsa.net: Bhakti Vikasa Swami: Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati Prabhupada on fine prasada

This is a story from 1311 Bengali year. When I (Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati) used to stay here (Yogapitha), Haripada Raya came here with his family during a festival. At that time, the cooking for the servants at the house of Mahaprabhu was very ordinary. Only on festive occasions were elaborate arrangements made for special guests. Even though they were dressed as Vaisnavas, he and his family became dissatisfied on seeing a sample of our type of prasada which was to be given to them. Then I said, "Give them some high-class food." About ten or twelve years after this we have been able to bring the standard up to what it is at present.

ISKCON Toronto, Canada: Sweet and Intimate Celebrations Mark Lord Nityananda's Advent!

There's something to be said about celebrations marking the appearance (advent) of Lord Nityananda. It's always a sweet and intimate affair! Lord Nityananda appeared as Lord Chaitanya’s principal associate for spreading the congregational chanting of the holy names of the Lord. He especially spread the holy name of the Lord throughout Bengal. He is considered an incarnation of Lord Balarama.

The entire festival was themed on the translation of the seventh verse of the Nityanandastaka, a poetic composition that glorifies Lord Nityananda: "I worship Lord Nityananda, the limitless root of the tree of devotional service. He traveled on every path, dancing, singing the names of Lord Hari, and describing His glories. Without considering His own interests, He was merciful to the people, and He cast upon them His merciful sidelong glance."

Celebrations featured a class by HG Rohini Priya das, focused on the mercy of Lord Nityananda as described in the above quote. This was followed by the singing of a beautiful bhajan, "Nadiya Godrume". As the bhajan was being sung, festival attendees got a chance to come forward and write a message to Lord Nityananda on pieces of paper cut in the shape of leaves. These leaves were then hung from a giant "tree of devotional service", referenced in the quote. Small Deities of Caitanya and Nityananda were then placed on a palanquin and taken around the temple room, "travelling on every path, dancing and singing". The 8pm arati followed with sweet kirtan and a wonderful feast awaited everyone at the end of the evening. Amidst everything, we also officially launched Toronto's Hare Krishna Internet Radio! It was indeed a sweet and intimate festival!

Kripamoya dasa, UK: Archbishop of Canterbury meets with Vaishnava acaryas

Archbishop of Canterbury Dr. Rowan Williams meets with Sri Sugunendra Teertha Swami of the Madhva sampradaya ( left) and Sri Chinna Jeer Swami of the Shri sampradaya (right) in Bangalore last October. This week, in London, he gave his reflections

This week the Archbishop of Canterbury reflected on his recent dialogue with Hindu swamis in Bangalore, India. The event was held at Lambeth Palace on the south bank of the Thames, and was hosted by the Hindu-Christian Forum. I was particularly interested to hear that the head of the Anglican Communion‘s 80 million Christians had been in discussions with Vaishnava acaryas, and was pleased to accept an invitation to the event.

As far as I know, the Archbishop’s dialogue was an historic occasion – the very first such meeting between the head of the established church of England and Indian sannyasis of ancient lineages. Indeed, although other meetings may have previously taken place with swamis of the Adwaita school, his meeting with two Vaishnava acaryas – at the same time – must have been unique.

Last October, the Archbishop Dr. Rowan Williams met with Sripad Sugunendra Theertha Swami of the Puthige Matha, Udupi, an acarya of the lineage of Madhvacarya; with Sri Chinna Jeer Swami of the Sri Vaishnava lineage; and with Sri Harshananda Swami of the Ramakrishna Mission, Dr. Shivamurthy Shivacarya of the Lingayats, and Sri Swami Paramananda Bharati of the Sringeri Math, a sannyasi in the line of Sankaracarya.

His first comment on Wednesday morning at Lambeth Palace to the fifty or so Hindus and Christians gathered there, was that in India he witnessed reflections and echoes of the theological discussions within his own tradition. Some of the theological issues found in Hinduism concerning grace and free will, and God’s immanence and transcendence have their parallels in medieval European discussions.

Yet despite the depth of our mutual religious paths, the world seems to ‘systematically trivialize what human beings are capable of,’  he said, as he reflected on how much both Hindus and Christians are consequently ‘hemmed in’ by ‘easy and crude versions’ of their deep philosophical issues and religious practices. Indeed, this seemed to be a recurring theme: the extent to which the highest spiritual aspirations of human beings are discounted because of the observer’s unfamiliarity with the appearance or ritual behaviour of ‘the other.’

“The other believer’s ritual, practise, tradition and language challenge what you know about yourself.”

“The common element in both Hinduism and Christianity is being awakened,” he said, and: “We are habituated to what is false about the world; we must become habituated to what is truth.”

On identity he commented: “We must establish what notion of human dignity we are working with; it is based on something inexhaustible.”

Yet in the world today we must be aware of: ‘the risks of allying religious language with political power, thereby imposing a certain kind of secularity.’

“When a religious person wants to declare that ‘we are under God’ it shapes the goals of the society in which the person lives. There should be religion in society and as a principle that is robust and defensible, but if there is dominance of religion in politics and freedom of conscience is not tolerated, and certain voices are made inaudible, certain minorities repressed, then that is wrong.” The Archbishop declared that India’s lasting legacy as a politically secular nation – a choice made at the time of independence – is that ‘the state creates a space where religions can believe – but not dominate.’

Regarding the situation in the United Kingdom where, unlike the USA, the Church of England is the established church and therefore intertwined with the state, he said: “…Christianity being the established church here is not to dominate, but rather it is the state saying: ‘We will take faith seriously.’

Returning to an initial theme of how religions other than one’s own are explored, taught in schools, and discussed, he explained his views: “There is comparative religion and then there is comparative theology, an attempt to go beyond mere ‘comparative-ism’ and to see what questions need to be answered, and can we do it together? This is ‘interactive pluralism,’ a respectful, lively engagement.” He added that such discussion needed to be based on philosophical ideas and ethical values rather than a discussion of externals such as clothing and so on. One issue for him was the status of women and their dress. Theology, he said, needs to be disentangled from culture to establish what practices are culturally based – or factually based on a repression of women – and which come from a perspective grounded in spiritual considerations.

“We need a greater level of religious literacy. There is ignorance in administrative circles. Religion in schools is sometimes the study of the eccentricities of foreigners, which I think is an outdated British approach. The ethical approach is deeper. We can study the devotion – not simply the festivals but the feelings supporting them.”

“When we speak of faith we should speak of not only one tribal entity but of faith in general – and bring that into the public arena. We have to be truthful about the other, and give an account of their faith and practice that they would recognize – even if we don’t agree.”

“Hindu dialogue has often been conducted by the under-educated. Hindus have been spoken for by academics (instead of educated Hindus explaining it themselves) There is a tendency to project a homogenized version of Hinduism in an attempt to understand it.”

Here Dr. Rowan Williams was hinting at the problem of trying to explain Hinduism as a singular entity rather than what it actually is – a family of sampradayas or ‘schools of faith.’ Understanding this problem, a problem that has dogged Hinduism in the diaspora for decades, is the key to beginning a fresh level of understanding. So it is extremely significant that the Archbishop’s visit to India embodied the Church’s desire to dialogue with the variety of sampradayas. Indeed, only by meeting representatives from the different sampradayas can the Church begin to understand that the word ‘Hinduism’ is a convenient but highly misleading term.

Commenting on the phenomenon of inter-faith dialogue, the Archbishop said that: “Because Hindu-Christian dialogue comes from colonial times, we have to go beyond a polite mutual ignorance. There are social, spiritual, and educational frameworks for interfaith.”

On the thorny question of religious conversion to Christianity in India he said: “I believe that freedom of religion means the freedom to change. Conversion is a movement of the heart, and people do change. But religious conversion should never be the result of manipulation, pressure, bullying or bribery. Where that is the case it is wrong.”

"Everything within the temple should be kept very, very neat and clean. And the more you keep the temple neat and clean, you will be neat and clean within your heart.

-- Srila Prabhupada Melbourne, May 22, 1975

Subhavilasa das ACBSP, Toronto, CA: Black History Month & Martin Luther King Jr ~ Lord Jaganatha showers His mercy

Picture
[so references and context makes sense...this article is written by Indresh - Subhavilasa das' son]  

The month of February is Black History Month here in Canada (African-American History Month in the U.S.) About a month ago (Monday, January 17th) was Martin Luther King Jr. Day in the US and in the kid's school here in Canada they talked about MLK and his contributions. 

This month they made them write short essays for about a dozen African American leaders including Martin Luther King Jr. My daughter's work got posted on the bulletin board this week (she is quite the author and in fact last year she became a published author) and it got me thinking about an essay I wrote about MLK some 25 years or so ago... 

Most blog readers must have at some point or another studied MLK, heard one of his speaches or read his writings. SO I would like to share one quote by Martin Luther King Jr. which really stood out to me...
 
"I am speaking of that force which all of the great religions have seen as the supreme unifying principle of life. Love is somehow the key that unlocks the door which leads to ultimate reality. This Hindu-Muslim-Christian-Jewish-Buddhist belief about ultimate -- ultimate reality is beautifully summed up..."

Last month I saw pictures and video of devotees spreading this same Love of God with Harinam at the MLK parada in L.A. They were making the Lord of the Universe accessible to everyone.

So enjoy the following video links of Jaganatha, Baladev and Subhadra along with His devotees participating in the parade on January 17th, 2011 courtesy of ISKON Los Angeles. The first link is actual coverage on ABC.

Manoj, Melbourne, AU: 205. Mind your Minerals !

As a vegetarian of many years, I have heard this all too often, “How do you get your proteins? How do you get your iron?”. And all I could say was, “Well…as a vegetarian, you can get all sorts of nutrients and minerals in a nice vegetable diet”. But I realized that its still possible to be short of elements like iron, protien and omega 3 because we just don’t try out varied vegetarian food that can offer us all the nutrients that the body needs. So, I decided to investigate and start consuming some supplements along side my regular diet. So, here are my picks :

The Richest Whole Food Source !

Spirulina is the Richest Whole Food Source Found in Nature

• A highly nutritious, microscopic freshwater plant.

• The superfood with over 100 nutrients, more than any other plant, grain or herb.

• Widely used as a food supplement for maintaining health, energy, weight loss and cleansing programs.

• Protein – 60-70% of its weight. 300% more protein than fish, meat or poultry, with no cholesterol.

• Iron – 58x richer than spinach in bi-available iron.

• Vitamin B12 – Natures richest source. Often lacking in a vegetarian diet.

• Chlorophyll – 2x richer than barley grass or wheatgrass.

• Anti-oxidants – 25x richer in beta-carotene than carrot and 3x richer in Vitamin E than wheatgerm.

• Spirulina assists weight loss by curbing appetite naturally while supplying a full range of nutrients needed for a balanced diet.

• As an unrefined wholefood, spirulina is absorbed up to x16 more effectively than synthetic multi-vitamin and mineral supplements.

IRON !!!!!!!!

There is no shortage of iron in plant foods. Pulses (peas, beans and lentils) and soya bean products (such as soya milk and tofu) provide an excellent source of iron. As do dark green leafy vegetables (such as broccoli, pak choy and watercress), wholegrains (such as wholemeal bread, brown rice and wholemeal pasta), dried fruits (raisins, prunes, apricots and figs) black treacle and plain dark chocolate.  However iron is not easily absorbed by the human body and many foods that are rich in iron do also contain iron absorption inhibitors such as Phytate, Polyphenols, Tannins, Calcium or Oxalic Acid.

In fact the latest figures form the Department of Health show that as many as 91% of women aged 16 – 64 do not get their RDA of iron from their diets. One third of all women and two in five under the age of 34 have iron intakes so low that it affects their health. If you are eating plenty of iron-rich foods but experience symptoms of iron deficiency such as fatigue you may want to consider supplementing your diet with iron.

Spatone is simply iron-rich water straight from the source (Snowdonia, Wales). The box from your nearest pharmacist comes with many sachets which provides with 25mg of ferrous sulfate (5mg of Iron). It’s 100% natural and provides one with the daily required iron intake.

Spatone and Spatone Apple are both suitable for Vegetarians, approved by the UK Vegetarian Society.

Oh my Omega !!!

Flax Seed Oil contains omega-6 and omega-9 essential fatty acids, B vitamins, potassium, lecithin, magnesium, fiber, protein, and zinc and also provides approximately 50% more omega-3 oils than what you could get from taking fish oil.

Some nutritionists, researchers, and scientists believe that it could be the most important health-promoting supplement next to a multi-vitamin. Nearly every system in the body can benefit from flax seed oil’s natural properties, including the cardiovascular system, immune system, circulatory system, reproductive system, nervous system, as well as joints.

The PROTIEN !!!

Instant Natural Protein Powder is made from Isolated Soy Protein which is easily digested and absorbed. It is low in fat, contains no animal products and is free from artificial additives. Instant Natural Protein Powder is suitable for vegetarians, vegans, those with milk or egg allergies, body builders, people trying to lose weight and those convalescing who cannot eat solid food. Instant Natural Protein powder has no discernable taste and so is suitable for use in milkshakes, soups, broths, gravies, stews, meat loaves and patties where the nutritional quality of foods to be enhanced.

So, there you go. 4 discoveries over the last few days. Once I have had some experience with these, I shall get back to you all with a verdict. I am feeling healthy already !

Dandavats.com: Srila Prabhupada’s Purports Are Perfect And Complete

By Sita Rama das

We have to have intelligence to understand and discuss Krishna Consciousness in both a non-dogmatic and uncompromising way. Intelligence implies abstract thinking. As children we begin to think abstractly but this is limited to concrete operations. If a child has two blocks of equal size it can conclude that a pile of two will be twice as high as one, every time

Bharatavarsa.net: Book distribution seminar: Prabhupada is personally driving this sankirtan mission.....

Please accept my humble obeisances All glories to Srila Prabhupada.

I was standing at the intersection of Avenue Road and Davenport in Toronto when some nice devotees said we could go to the temple to take prasadam and then I would get a ride to where I needed to go for sankirtan. I almost decided to go with them, but something in my heart said I should not go, as it was already time for my sankirtan service. So I said no and ran across the street to head off to a nearby sankirtan spot.

After crossing the street I noticed a lady coming out of the dry cleaners with her little girl. I asked her if she had heard of yoga or meditation and she said yes. I showed her a copy of "The Perfection of Yoga," and she said that she’d heard of the Bhagavad-gita. She started to express her appreciation for the little book very much and then explained that she goes to a Swami Narayan temple and practices chanting.

Excited to hear that, I showed her the Isopanishad and explained that it’s like a sequel to the Bhagavad-gita. While appreciating the Iso, she suddenly said she liked Ganesha very much. I told her these books were written down by Lord Ganesha, following the dictation of Vyasadeva. She was very happy to hear that and then started to tell me how she has another book at home she likes to read -- which turned out to be "The Science of Self-realization." She had gotten it from a sankirtan devotee. I told her it was written by a monk and showed her a picture of Srila Prabhupada. She instantly recognized him and said, "Yes! Yes! I’ve seen him."

I was intrigued. "Seen him where?" I asked.

She explained, "When the Hare Krishnas were parading on Yonge street, this monk was there and I saw him. He was wearing yellow-pinkish clothes." Then she said that she knew him. Next she opened the other book and read aloud "His Divine Grace," repeating it several times, saying "Yes, I know His Divine Grace."

I now understood that she’d seen the murti of Srila Prabhupada seated on one of the Ratha-yatra carts.

She was happy to give a donation for the books and said she wanted to keep in touch. Then as she was leaving I showed her how to chant "Gauranga." We exchanged emails and then she left, saying Gauranga three times.

Srila Prabhupada is personally driving this sankirtan mission, and all the demigods are assisting him.

Kirtan Australia.com: Dave Stringer Australian Tour 2011

Hey Beautiful Chanters -

I’m thrilled to be returning to Australia soon, and grateful to be a part of the rapid expansion of the Australian kirtan scene. This year my itinerary spans the entire month of March, and includes stops in Ipswich, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Byron Bay, Bellingen, Port MacQuarie, Newcastle, Gosford, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide and Melbourne. The tour will also feature a four day residential music retreat at Govinda Valley in New South Wales. I call it Kirtan Flight School.musiciansThis year will be the first time I am teaching Kirtan Flight School in Australia, and I’m delighted to hear that registrations are coming in at a fast clip.  People in Europe and America have told me repeatedly that the Flight School is the one of the most powerful retreats they have ever attended. Who knew that putting instruments in people’s hands, organizing them into bands, and coaching them through the process of leading and playing for kirtan would be so personally transformative? Click here to download a flyer and complete course description, and click here to register.

dearbhlaI will also be playing music for yoga workshops March 13 and 20 in Sydney and Canberra, taught by my wife, Irish philosopher and writer Dearbhla Kelly. Dearbhla has a particular interest in the neurochemistry of ecstasy, and has recently been published on this subject in LA Yoga Magazine and Yoga Journal Germany. Scroll down for more info. Click here to download a copy of her article.

Guest musicians on the tour include the Brisbane-based heavy metal Krishna contingent of SitapatiVrajadhama and Prema Yogi on bass, mridangam and kartals, respectively. From Sydney, the jazz-oriented stylings of Shankara on bass, Simon Chadwick on saxophone and Charlie Meadows on electric guitar. Also from Sydney, the super versatile guitar and bass player Clayton Frick, the kirtan duo of Edo and Jo, and the sublime vocals of Carmella Baynie. More guest musicians are likely!

allieAccompanying me for all the dates will be my long time tabla and cajon player Doug Brush (now a resident of New Zealand), and my silken-voiced niece and protégé Allie Stringer. Allie started touring and recording with me when she was only 14. Now 22, she has also sung with other noted kirtan singers GirishDavid Newman and Mike Cohen. She has just moved to Melbourne, and will likely be leading a lot of kirtans on her own in Australia.

kirtan byronByron Bay has a new website where you can find info about my upcoming kirtan and all future kirtan events in the area. Click here for for more info.

Scroll down for details on the tour, or check my website. Looking forward to singing with you again soon!

Big love,
Dave
