By Gurunathar’s grace, we had the bhagyam to celebrate Ashada Ekadasi & Guru Poornima in a very divine way. The event was hosted by Ranjani ji and Rajshekhar ji at their residence. We started with chanting the Holy Nama for 45 mins. This was followed by reciting Guru Paduka Ashtothram. We sang few Guru Kirtans. We were fortunate to have Madurasmaranam by Balasubramanian Mama & Mami from Singapore Namadwar. The apt Madurageetam we could feel & relate to upon hearing the Madurasmaranam could be ‘Guruvandri gathi verillai’, our Guru Maharaj is our Guide & He is our everything. Our ears were yearning to hear more and more and our hearts were filled with immense joy & happiness!
