GANESHA IN PRASANTHI NILAYAM
OM GAM GANAPATAYE NAMAH
Salutations to Lord Ganesh
Jumping ahead a bit here!
This posting consists of some screenshots and a video of a casual walk,
I took with video camera along the main Puttaparthi thoroughfare.
From where we were home-based, it took around 10 minutes everyday
to reach the Ganesh Gate.
This video was taken the morning after Maha Shivaratri around 9.30am.
For many who have travailed this road in past, you know what its like.
For those who haven't this is what its usually like EVERYDAY!!!
At this time of the morning it was not that busy.
It usually gets really really busy in the afternoons and early evenings, especially when Darshan finishes.
Devotees stream out of the Gate to shop etc etc.
This video (see below) is just one long continuous shot.
I walk all the way up to Chitravati Road (which is opposite the Prasanthi Nilayam entrance).
I even managed to get Ganesha's Darshan!
I then turn around and walk all the way back down to the Hanuman Temple Road.
This is a long video (20mins). Transport yourself there and imagine walking with the camera.
See it as a walking meditation!
