WHAT IS AN IYS YATRA?

The IYS yatra is a spiritual retreat to different holy places in India like Vrindavan, Mayapur, Ujjain, Chitrakoot, Badrinath, Dwarka, Jagannath Puri etc. to provide the participants a first-hand experience of its rich cultural heritage.

Such trips give an amazing boost to the participants’ spiritual dimension, along with an opportunity to bathe in the wondrous association of devotees and the merciful darshans of the deities in the holy dham.

ABOUT AHOBILAM...

Situated in the hills of Eastern Ghats about 400kms northwest of Chennai, Ahobilam lies in the Kurnool district of Andhra Pradesh. This is the very place where the supreme personality of Godhead incarnated in a never-seen-before form of half-man, half-lion as Lord Narasimhadeva to keep the words of his dear devotee - the 5-yr old Prahlad. Being supremely angry, He tore down Prahlad’s father Hiranyakasipu with his nails. It is said that these Nallamalai range of mountain in Andhrapradesh is manifestation of Adisesha himself and that at the tail end is Sri Sailam, the middle part is Ahobilam and the head is Tirupati.

The Lord here appeared in 9-different self manifested Deity forms depicting His various moods. Also here is the place where stood the school of Shanda & Amarka, teachers appointed by Hiranyakasipu, where Prahlad was send to study, but instead he taught the science of bhakti to his classmates!

As a regular feature of IYS, the next IYS yatra will be going to "Ahobilam - The Nava Narasimha Kshetra". More than 700 boys are expected to benefit from this unique opportunity & get innumerable unforgettable experiences of the beautiful dham. We invite you to join in too...
