Chunchanakatte Temple – Kodanda Rama Temple in Karnataka

KodandaRamaTemple is dedicated to Bhagavan Sri Rama and is located at ChunchanakatteVillage near KR Nagara in Mysore. The temple is around 55 km from Mysore.

Teachings from Sant Kabir’s Doha – Couplets

There is none closer than the pure master, no one more generous than a learned person; none more helpful than the Lord, and no caste better than that of the worshippers.

The importance of the pure master is endless, he helped in countless ways; he took off numerous curtains from the eyes, And he showed the infinity.
A devotee is worried only about remembering and repeating the name of Hari, the God. He seldom thinks about other social and religious activities. He, who indulges into other works without Rama, is caught in Time’s net.
