A VISIT TO MALLIGERE
Malligere is a village in the Tumkur District, Chikkanayakana halli taluk.
It is here that Sri Brahmachaithanya Maharaj gave darshan to Sri G. Venkannaiah in 1913 (Nov), while Sri G.Venkannaiah was meditating on Sri Ram, near a tank he was supervising as a P.W.D.Sub-Overseer, during the lunch-hour. Sri Maharaj called him to Gondavale (Gondavalyave!).( the full information about this is given earlier in this blog)
Some people of the village have identified the place where Sri Maharaj gave darshan to Sri G.Venkannaiah, and have erected a small sthupa there. For us that is a sacred place,from where Sri Maharaj started to influence and Grace many devotees of Karnataka . Chinthamani Mandir is the main out-come.
Devotees here, and from Bangalore,Tiptur and Arasikere have planned to visit the place on Sunday,30-1-2011, for a Satsang there.
