This was my personal experience of visit to MAHARAMAHAYANA SATRA which is being held at Hosanagara ramachandrapura Matha.
We three, KMT, Giri and i(Venu) started early morning 6 o'clock from suratkal on our favorite hero honda bikes. the onward journey was a memorable experience. We had breakfast at kundapur, which was not upto the mark. The ride through the thick rain forests in the mookambika range was a soothening experience. Kmt had a unexpected meet of his aunt and brother in kollur temple. we took snaps too. Kmt later had met several of his relatives in Mahasatra.
we reached there at around 11.30. The parking slot was spacious. there were generous volunteers chanting HARERAM again and again, and ready to help of any kind. people were made in to single line and being lead to the huge Mahasatra campus. The main attraction was GOSHALA, consisting attractive cows mainly from northern india.
it was sad to watch a few dying cows too. later we had a glimpse of Matha, Ravana, Ramapattabhisheka mandira and hundreds of Kolyas chanting ramayana. There was a huge venue for Yaga.
vounteers were spirited in distributing panaka. Kmt showed interest in drinkg as much cups of panaka as possible. Lunch was arranged in a nice manner, the taste was praiseworthy.
we started from there around 3 o clock, after few minutes rest in parking slot. we came through Theertha halli, attractive Agumbe, Manipal and reached Suratkal at 8 pm.
Of course riding gives this much long brings fatigue but also joy
