The Bangalore Murthy

We are grateful to Mr. K. B. Viswanath for providing this additional information to the August 20, 2011, post on this blog.

The idea of installing a marble statue of Swamiji in the Bangalore ashram temple was proposed by Mr. Viswanath to the Bangalore trustees who supported the idea.

Mr. Viswanath and his wife Smt. K. Accava Viswanath graciously donated the entire cost of of the sculpture.

The earlier blog did not give proper credit to the Viswanaths' inspiration and generosity. The installation of Shivabalayogi's murthy in the Brahma Vishnu Maheshwara Temple is of great service and value for all devotees, as is Mr. Viswanath's ongoing work for Swamiji and devotees as working chairman of the Bangalore Trust.

Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Viswanath.
