Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya – May HE lead us from ignorance to knowledge

Progress on the portals

with 2 comments

Last week, Samata and I combined a personal visit to Mangalore (to attend a marriage) with some work on the “Temples of Tulunadu” project. I was able to visit Belmannu, Bola, Kandalike and Pavanje. In the coming weeks, I will publish small writeups, as usual, on the Anandatirtha website. Visiting these temples right in the middle of the monsoon was indeed a challenge but the effort left me immensely pleased. In addition, we also visited Nellitheertha, Palimaru, Kulai and a small Mukhyaprana temple in Hosabettu, near Suratkal. I have come back spiritually re-charged 🙂

I am closing in on twenty temples now as part of the project. My first milestone has been 50 temples. If I am able to complete this in around 2 years (started sometime September 2008), that will be a great beginning.

In another good development, the Vishnusahasranama portal is seeing some good traction. Madhusimha’s untiring efforts led to the completion of the pages for the 1000 names. We are now full time into developing individual pages for each of the names. Madhusimha has also kindly agreed to contribute to this. In addition, my (e-)friend 🙂  Gautham Shenoy has also joined us. I am very optimistic that the portal will now see rapid development.

  1. Dear sir,

    I have been visiting your blog often and it is quite impressive and informative. I want to know whether staying facilities are available at Tulunad temples(the interior ones which you visit) as I want to be in the serene atmoshphere to have a deep meditative experience.

    May God bless you in all your endeavours.

    • Namaskara,

      It is difficult to find good accommodation in any of the temples in the interiors. The safer option is to take accommodation in places like Kateel, Udupi, Dharmasthala and visit the nearby temples. Reaching these temples shouldn’t take more than an hour or so.

      Thanks, Hari
