Sunday 30th August 2015

Dwadasha Omkareshwara Temple on Omkar Hills on Uttarahalli-Kengeri road has been recent addition to the visiting places in NammaBengaluru.
It was on last Sunday 30th August, we had a chance to visit the place see the place which are still developing.

Dwadasha (12) Jyotirlinga Temple at Omkara Ashrama is a Religious & Spiritual place on the Omkar Hills - which is one of the highes spots in Bengaluru. The avowed objective of the ashrama is to propagate universal brotherhood as per the Advaitic vision of universal oneness discovered by the Vedic Rishis. 

The Ashrama campus has several temples - namely Sri Dwadasha Jyotirlinga Temple, Sri Matsya Narayana Temple, Sri Nagadevata Temple,Sri Vana Durga Temple, Sri Ganapathi Temple and Sri Munishwara Temple - and a giant tower clock which is one of the biggest clock in the world. Apart from the temples, the ashrama campus is having a Vishwamitra Veda Vidyalaya and a Goshala. Also in the ashrama, daily Sri Chakra Puja (Navavarana Puja) will be done by the head of the institution.

The message of all religions is to give more than to receive; is to perceive and not to deceive; is for attainment and not for commitment. Universal Brotherhood and mutual respect are the core teachings of every religion. The Vedas proclaim “Ekam sat, vipra bahudha vadanthi – truth is one; sages proclaim it differently”. All mystics speak the same truth but in different languages and different manners.

We could spend about an hour going round the places and going on the hills. Small children from Vedashala brought from MP and UP are seen running around, speaking in Hindi, studying sanskrit and Vedapatha.
