A visit to the Subramanya shrine

A spiritual adventure

semi-overcast 27 °C

In the year 2005, my mother and I made up our minds to go Spiritual backpacking to the famous Subramanya temple in the Mangalore Ghat Section. It was almost evening by the time we had reached the shrine. By the time we finished our Darshan at the shrine, it was late and we decided to go back to our hotel in Mangalore from Subramanya. We asked the bus driver to wait for us to finish our dinner, but he never waited. That was the last bus to return from the forest region to the city.

We were just thinking that we got stranded, when an auto rickshaw driver came to the rescue. He took us to an accommodation in the forest, but we got scared and we asked him to drop us somewhere else. He did so hesitantly. Finally, we reached a building that was under construction. A man was standing there and when we asked him as to whether the building under construction had place in it for us to stay, he said that it is a new hostel and he arranged to accommodate us. We were highly thankful to Lord Subramanya for showing us the way in the middle of the night.
