DWARKA :- Saptapuri and City of Moksha. Nearby Places
5th January 2012 :- Here we come on the second last day of the city which grants universe’s most precious thing that is Moksha. This day was great as it was Vaikuntha Ekadashi on that day ( best ekadashi considered by many saints ) and we were in Lord’s place itself.We all had kept fast on this day and our plan was to visit the place where actually Lord Dwarkadhish stayed. And also visit that place where Mahadeva’s jyotirlinga is present in the form of Nageshwara.Also I will show some places which I bet not many among all devotees and tourists who visit Dwarka must not have explored. Jay Dwarkadhish……………….
Dear Ghumakkars and viewers who have gone to Dwarka before, please check it for yourself whether you have visited these places, where I have gone in this post apart from famous ones. Jay Dwarkadhish……………….
Let me start with what I did on 5th January. Early morning I woke up at 5.30 am went to bath and by 6.00 am I rushed towards temple , my family members still sleeping and getting up. The reason was to view Mangala Aarti of Lord Dwarkadhish. The Mangala Aarti of Lord has greatest importance and there is lot of rush even on normal days.So to pick my favourite spot from where I can have full view of Lord Dwarkadhish and his aarti I need go atleast half an hour before.Jay Dwarkadhish……………….
The Aarti starts at 7.00 am and before that all devotees wait and sing for the Lord in queues. This whole marvelous experience, the loud songs of devotees specially ladies , the wait for Lord’s Glimpse is all very sweet and mind blowing. At sharp 7.00am the curtains open we get to see Lord.
