From Digboi we traveled southwest to the populous city of Mumbai, located in the state of Maharashtra. I have to admit that I wasn’t very excited to visit Mumbai. It is a big noisy city with lots of traffic and walls of people in constant motion. However, I got a fresh perspective of modern Mumbai […]
We flew from New Delhi to Dibrugaurh, in the State of Assam. From there, we traveled by car to Digboi, the birthplace of Shree Maa. Assam is a state in the north-eastern region of India, connected to India mainland through West Bengal. This beautiful land is located south of the eastern Himalayas and is well-known […]
Our stay in Rishikesh was drawing to a close. Devotees from all over India were calling from their hearts for Shree Maa and Swamiji to come see them, and we knew it was time to move forward on our journey.

Tap….Tap….Tap…. was the sound of Swamiji’s walking stick as we sauntered down the cemented sidewalk that runs adjacent to the Ganges River. It was nice to breathe in the fresh air, which gently rolled off the river as if it were blessing us with its darshan. I felt doubly blessed this beautiful morning to also […]

They almost always visit them whenever they come to Rishikesh, and even when they don’t, they send other devotees to these temples on their behalf with their blessings. The favorite temples in the Rishikesh area are […]
There are several other notable temples in the city of Katra and the larger region of Jammu-Kashmir that we simply were not able to visit due to time constraints. But Shree Maa and Swamiji cleverly narrowed down the temple selection to a few quiet temples in which they thought we would be able to worship […]
The next opportunity to worship at the Vaishno Devi Temple came on an early morning excursion. Having experienced such a wonderful Arati on our first visit, we all longed to witness the morning puja and offer our own worship to the Goddess. Shree Maa gleefully sat on her palki and was more than happy to […]
It used to be that the only way to journey to the cave temple of Vaishnav Devi was by foot or pony. Ardent devotees trekked up a steep 12 kilometer (equivalent to 7.5 miles) mountain path with their personal belongings as well as prasad for the Goddess. This walk would have been very difficult for […]
