Remembering A Very Fortunate Devotee
“Whenever a great being appears, he comes with his retinue. When Bhagavan incarnated on earth, we too came to serve him. Once our service is over, we will go back to the source.”
Jayanthiji was a tall, majestic, beautiful devotee with sparkling eyes and ears attentive to the Master. A ball of energy that only great bhaktas like Jayanthiji can be, she served her Master with motherly affection all through her life from the day that she had her first darshan of her spiritual Master.

Madhura Geetam – Prayer Series: 11
Seek Devotion as Alms
In this series, we present, each month, a prayer kirtan composed by His Holiness Maharanyam Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji. These kirtans underline the importance of prayers and beautifully show us how we should pray.
Bhakti is the Lord’s prized possession. He does not bestow it to one easily.
Therefore Sri Swamiji says, it is essential to pray incessantly to the Lord for Bhakti and not for anything else.
In the deeply moving kirtan, “Bhakti Bhikshai Ittiduvai”, set in Ahiri raga, Sri Swamiji shows us how to plead to the Lord for Bhakti.
