Video Description - Published on Apr/21/2008
Kanyakumari is at the southernmost tip of India and its where three seas meet: the Bay of Bengal, Indian Ocean and Arabian sea.
Pilgrims come here to bathe in the sacred waters and to worship the goddess Devi Kanya, an incarnation of Shivas wife, who conquered demons and secured freedom for the world.
400m off the coast, in a rocky island, stands a memorial dedicated to Swami Vivekananda, who meditated here in 1892 before setting out to America to spread a message of social justice.
Your own will is all that answers prayer, only it appears under the guise of different religious conceptions to each mind. We may call it Buddha, Jesus, Krishna, but it is only the Self, the "I".

One of South Indias great temple towns, Madurai (Meenakshi Temple). Situated on the banks of river Vaigai, Madurai has a rich cultural heritage passed on from the great Tamil era more than 2500 years old.
Madurai was an important cultural and commercial centre even as early as 550 AD. It was the capital city for the great Pandya kings.
Rameshwaram is a pilgrimage centre of nationwide importance, as Rama is said to have worshipped Shiva here on his way back from SriLanka.
