First I need to Thank you for organizing such a grand puja. It was really amazing to see so many devotees that too in USA. I felt blessed and I am proud that I am one among the 1050 ladies. I am inadequate with words to explain how great it was.
Another special thing about the puja is my mom also participated in puja from India (live telecast). I thank you again from bottom of my heart for each and every effort that you have put in, and I would like to thank each and every person who made this event very special.

I must congratulate all of the volunteers at Ananth Veda Group for all your tireless efforts and doing such a wonderful job of conducting the Devi mahotsavam. There were so many people yet everything ran so smoothly. The last minute decision to move the pooja to the inside of the temple did not affect any of us participants only because of the way you all worked so hard and tirelessly.
Thanks again,
Mohan Iyer

Dear Ananth ji,

I have no words to describe the incredible flow of Grace that my wife & I experienced in the sammelan of the Devi Mahotsavam along with my bretheren of AVG, SSVT and the greater Hindu Community.

The joy continues unabated as I proceed to work today and it is a feeling of expansive happiness that puts the goblins of everyday petty anxieties to flight by the sheer majesty of its presence.

How do I express my gratitude for having been given this indescribable treasure? Words are indeed beggared by its grandeur and all I can say is that the work that all of you do will today find its expression in the lives of every suffering individual that I may touch. May the blessings of their relief be showered upon all of you.

Dear Guru Ananth and Meena,

I can only describe my emotion as wonderully devine during the conduct of the entire three day program; especially during the Chandi Homam conducted by Sri Kalidasa Shivacharya and Devi Mahatmyam rendered by Sri Shanmukha Shivacharya. We feel blessed to be a part of AVG and go through this blissful experience. Amma is very happy that she was part of the program. She will be leaving to Bengaluru on the 29th of April.

You both have worked tirelessly for the success of the Devi Mahotsavam. We urge you to relax a little and take care of your health.

Dear Guruji, Meena aunty and Nara,
It was a spell-binding divine experience. Words can not describe the event. Ram and I also felt the comaraderie and inclusiveness in every activity.

Thank you for your leadership.

I want to thank u from the bottom of my heart for allowing us to be a part of such beautiful and precious ceremony. I nada lot misgivings about attending it due to our situation. But the arrangement were such that I had no problems at all. Actually I took wheel chair with me instead of a walker, but I could have been just as happy with a walker.
Ceremony was wonderful. Daivi Shakti was all pervading. Of course one cannot repay this type of obligation but considering my age I can always say may mata Shakti be with u.

Ananth Maama and hope I can call you that way?! I am Jayashree's sister in NC. Wish I could address you as Guruji but unfortunately have not attended or learnt much from you so far but have been really enjoying the Soundaryalahiri classes on Thursdays by calling in promptly amidst the usual samsaaram, kids, etc;
I am spell bound by your knowledge and explanations and even told my husband that if at all we move anywhere else it should be DC so we both can attend your classes and enlighten ourselves a little bit.
You are doing such a great service through this and just wanted to express my heartfelt gratitude. Thank you so very much Ananthji and will also try my best to attend the Devi Mahotsavam this is all in "Her" hands. Also Please let me know if there is anything I can do from here for the event if I am not late in asking!

Pranamams to Uncle and Aunty,

Many times I wanted to understand "Shiva Thathvam", what is it that attracts you so much? In today's class Guruji, you had mentioned Shivam is "auspiciousness". That once we stop thinking about our body and senses and are able to control our mind we can realize "Shivam" which is the "bliss". After every Thursday class I go home very happy enjoying this bliss. I cannot explain it in words. Thank you for the Satsang and many other events that you conduct/guide via the AVG Inc. I am one among many others who are lucky to have met you. Thanks to Sudhakar and Rama garu for introducing me to AVG group.

Hari Om,
