... The essence of this practice is the remembrance of the Lord at all times. In his book ‘Guidance from the Guru’, which is a set of letters to a householder couple, Maharaj advises repeatedly,“Don’t stop taking the name of the Lord. Begin the day with the Lord’s name and at the end of the day take the Lord’s name. Keep repeating the Lord’s name.” And he practiced it himself. Gurudev has said, “Out of ...

As with all hill stations there is a road called The Mall. It is a pedestrian and local traffic area, which excludes any and all tourist vehicles. This would not be a problem, IF the hotels along the mall road offered pickup of the guests, or allowed the taxi's to do a drop off. Since this ...

My hotel is very near one of the two Mussoorie bus stands, the Library Bazaar one. So I went to the bus stand at about 9:00 and asked around about the bus to Dehra Dun. Predictably, and uselessly, everybody told me the bus would be there in about 5 minutes. In fact it came in about ten minutes – and left at 9:13. After a very winding trip down the mountain, ...

While our self driven road trip to Kanatal, we had good 3 nights stay at Kasmanda Palace in Mussourie. It is located at one of the highest points in Mussourie.
Best location, especially when Mussourie is flooded with people during summer vacation times, this is a great respite to enjoy the queen of hill stations. We had our best time at the open air cafe which was giving awesome view of Mussourie and Dehradun valley. Ambiance was perfect for a royale experience. Kids were amazed by the hunter's trophies (animal heads and skins by expert taxidermist). It has gorgeous interiors, feels like a palace. It has a huge gardens with exotic plantations. We thoroughly enjoyed our times.
Food was just good and tickled out taste buds. Thanks to the Chef.
They offer good up-down car facility to reach the mall road as drive to the palace is a bit difficult and steep. Good service and good driver too.
The rooms are OK with very basic facilities. They can be better, especially televisions could be LCDs. Windows were not properly netted and were fixed by brown taps by the housekeeping guys to prevent mosquitoes. Mostly no charging points in the room and we were carrying 9 gadgets (mobile phones, laptops, camera, GPS, tablets and iPODs). We had to plan the charging and it was almost full time activity.
Things could be more professional too. We asked for laundry and the guy came with a hand written laundry price list on waste paper. There were no laundry bags. They asked for cash against laundry delivery, which could be done in better way.
Note: I don't know if I have to share this. Our 5 yr old kiddie was going to the open air cafe through the dining area through the connecting door which was followed by the stair case. While the child was going on the stair case, obviously was slow as steps were large, one man was walking behind him, who was probably in rush. He opened the door and did not care about the child and child almost fell down, he did not care and just walked away arrogantly. No sorry, not apologies to the mom of the child waiting for the child to come up. We thought that he must be some guest who did not care. We inquired and found that he was the owner himself. We were shocked for some time and so was the child. We expected some courtesy from him. Anyways, it happens and we have to move on.
