  1. ONE OF THE HANUMAN IDOLS CONSECRETED BY SRI VYASARARU IS AT KANAKAPURA,RAMANAGARA DISTRICT OF KARNATAKA ;ON THE BANKS OF RIVER ARKAVATHI.KANAKAPURA IS ABOUT 56 KMS FROM BANGALORE,THE CAPITAL CITY OF KARNATAKA.CONTACT:venkateshgururaj@indiatimes.com . Mobile Ph.9341056087,99001111491.

  2. During mahabharatha war , Vyasaraj was born as Balhika elder brother of shantanu, he was older than Bheeshma, He had to fight with Bheemasena . Raising weapons (732 times) against Guru Vayu is an unpardonable crime, to mitigate it ,as vyasaraja he installed 732 idols as Hanuman.
    He donated his divine chariot to Bheemasena while breathing his last.(vide:golden rathotsava for Shri Raghavendra of Mantralayam)
    kindly take it with hansakshirnyaya.

  5. Namaskara Sri Chiraan,

    Its interesting to read your comment because that is the exact purpose I had in mind when I started to write about Sri Madhva’s philosophy in my blog.

    I strongly feel a lot of people have latent interest in these topics but lack the inertia to get started. I am hoping I can contribute a bit by paraphrasing some of the messages of our Shastras in an interesting way that could act as a trigger to at least a few people.

    Once someone gets started, how much of the journey he covers and how far he reaches is, of course, entirely up to him/her.

    The aim of my “Did You Know..” series is also the same.

    Regards, Hari
