Result for Ambujam-Anantharaman

The fascinating story of Meera – she refused to commit Sati

Now, the Rajput tale – please note this is the Rajput tale – says she was a loyal wife to Lord Bhojraj. Bhojraj died early and only then did she devote herself full time to the worship of Lord Krishna. She refused to commit Sati! Her decision not burn herself live on the funeral pyre of her husband as was the custom was supported both by her father and by her father-in-law.

The 18th avatar of Lord Vishnu - By Ambujam Anantharaman

Kapila Muni, a sage who founded Sankhya philosophy, is deemed by the people of Rajasthan to be the 18th incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The belief there is different – in most places in India we know of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu, called “Dasavatar.” In that western Indian state, which has a huge border with Pakistan, the belief is that Lord Vishnu incarnated 22 times.

Shiv Mandir – Jaisalmer

Ambujam Anantharaman brings you a ringside view. The beautiful Gadisar Lake can be seen from the open balustrade to the left of the Shiv Mandir in Jaisalmer, the desert town in Rajasthan where every building is a work of art. Finding a temple in Jaisalmer is somewhat of a surprise, and is incidental to the necessary visit to the lake and to the shopping centre selling incredibly low-priced handlooms and handicrafts. Not to mention the camel ride in the desert to drink in of the setting sun.
