It was 3rd March, 2011. The day after Maha Shivaratri. Maha Shivaratri was celebrated yesterday with lot of enthusiasm and spiritual emotions under the guidance of Pujyapad Shri Guruji at Shiv Shakti Kul Aashram located at Vadodara, Gujarat State, India. We still could feel the fragrance of smoke in our nose which was generated from the Yajna (Sacred Fire Ritual)by the Aahuti (offering in to the sacred fire)given by Shiv Shakti Kul members. The atmosphere still filled with the vibrations of mass chanting of hymns by Brahmins.

The festival of Maha Shivaratri was over. We all were in some kind of sacred state of mind. Hearts filled with bliss. At late evening we were filled with more happiness as Shri Guruji announced that we are going for Shri Narmada Darshan. Narmada, the holy river Narmada. From many years Shri Guruji prefers to visit Narmada on the day after Maha Shivaratri. This great river flows just about 50 kms from the city Vadodara. Pujyapad Shri Guruji has spent many time of his life at various places on the bank of this holy river doing his sadhana. Not in any temple or Aashram, but in isolation, living with nature. So the idea of visiting this river was very exciting for us. Shiv Aashraya was also very excited and emotional about this idea. As Shri Guruji said that we were going to visit the holy shrine of Maha Sati Mata Shri Anasuyaji. Very ancient and auspicious temple of Maha Sati Anasuya Mataji is situated about 50 km from Vadodara city, Gujarat state, India. This holy place is located near the famous pilgrimage town Chandod on the bank of the auspicious river Narmada. Chandod is known as Prayag Tirth of South part of India, Dakshina Prayag. It means there are Triveni Sangam of Narmada, Orasang and Gupta Sarasvati (meeting of three holy rivers).

Shiv Aasharaya got quite emotional. He has been lucky enough to visit this place earlier with Pujyapad Shri Guruji.

As our car passed through the city and approached on the high way with very few traffic noises. the Satsang in Automobile began. Everybody had questions. In the car were Shiv Aaradhana, ShivaAmrut Rasika, Shiv Aashraya, Trilochan Das, Mahadev Aashrit, Bhavani Sharan and I, Shiv Sharanya, with Pujyapad Shri Guruji. Of course the driver too was attentive to every word spoken by Shri Guruji. It was a School On Wheels.

Pujyapad Shri Guruji told us about the place we were going to visit. The Holy Shrine of Maha Sati Anasuya Devi. It is said that this is the place where Bhagavati Anasuya Devi, the wife of Maharshi Atriji, turned the three principle Gods in to infants.
