the road was straight and well maintained.9
km long to the mandir
Along the road on both sides there was green trees.
I would like to live here..(again one illusion touched
Some little car was coming behind me and I lifted hand
..they didn't stop.
I continued walking..
2 calves were looking at me in wonder..
After some time big track was coming ..I lifted again
my hand and it stopped.
Driver and his helper told me to come with them.
I met 2 young silent beautiful Indian persons. .
Driver smiled and offered me little sugar
bolls-prashadam from mandir.
They were workers in mandir's area for cows.
maharaja and mandir takes care for 14.000 cows (I got
I didn't see much cows..but I could see very well
maintained area where cows live.
In shadow of green trees..
I could see stone-water basins for cows to drink water.
under the trees and everywhere around was so
Near the mandir I got of from the track and continued
There was not much people around the mandir..
I entered through 2 entrances to big terrace
From terrace was entrance to little temple with pujari
in red clothes.
I didn't see clear which deity he was serving.
I think it was Shiva lingam ..
I asked where is maharaj
and underground library..
Unfortunately library was closed and it is not known
when it will be again open for visitors.
This decision was made after bomb explosion in Jaipur
which happened in may 2008.
I could only see the door with blue curtain behind
which was Bhadrija maharaj and his picture above the door
They say he is also meditating underground.
It is not possible to see him
I accepted food which they offered to me..
It was delicious dahi, curd and butter fresh from
Subji, vegetables was spicy, but very tasty chapatti,(bread)..
I started somehow conversation in little Hindi little
One person was like servant of maharaja who could enter to him and give message.
I asked maybe they could allow me to see library.
I will leave all my things outside, I am tiny little
.I am not terrorist, or danger..
Finally they said to me to write my name and address.
will ask maharaj..
but maharaj was sleeping, they said.
he was meditating and they call it sleeping..
or, only maharaj knows what he is doing..
but it was not possible to ask him for permission
I said I will wait.
I closed my eyes in little 'office room' to meditate
I asked in my mind maharaj for permission..
2-3 minutes later the same 2 persons decided to let
me go in library
without waiting to ask maharaj.
We entered in underground library.
4 persons were following with me.
young women who knows english
finished her job in maharaja’s kitchen and she was
also with us.
I could see many long corridors with book-shelves in
the walls .
books were behind glass-doors
there are 80 rooms like this and 562 book shelves..
Many books were lying on the floor not yet sorted on
All this job is doing Bhadriya maharaj alone himself
in the night..
he is now 80 years old.
there are all kinds of books collected in this
I don't know purpose of it..
or if somebody is using this books..
After library they showed me one thing more..
Walking on the ground in big silent area with
buildings of yellow sand,
we entered again through another door to another
Big hall opened in front of my eyes..
they said ,this is STD..
there were speakers and microphones around on the
walls of this hall.
This is probably for different kinds of gatherings...for
lectures or music..
At the end of visit person from mandir
helped me to get taxi to main road where for only 100
While waiting taxi we drunk chai .
and all present Indians old and young were gathered
It is not that they see so often some foreigner here,
one 'gauri' as they call us white
Chai-shop keeper with care found
and started moving it near me , like
it was very hot day in the middle
of the day
when taxi came it was departure with many smiling and
saying 'ta-ta which is like good buy..
I felt like some big, my family came to say me good buy..
Again on the main road other group of present Indians
were looking at me
come near trying to speak with me..
and bus to Jaisalmer arrived soon.
It was just nice to sit in this buss with this simple
